Need to hear from:
Why does that hand pic for Obi1 have his EpII lightsaber and his EpIII lightsaber?
I think they molded the lightsabers in the hands like that because they are worried little Johnny might get a lightsaber in the eye when they do the action features
I think that these other figures have them molded on so when you do the "action feature", the weapon won't go flying across the room.
According to Hasbro, this is due to some safety violation and some lawsuits that came from the Saga Throne Room Duel Vader (in the USA and Australia) and eventually lead to a product recall in Australia:

This way, with the lightsaber molded to the hand, the lightsabers will stay in their hands while they are doing the "slashing attack" action features that are planned for Collection 1 and won't be able to fling out and poke some kid in the eye.
The lightsabers are molded to the hands?
I thought they were 2 per case?
(Is he Captain Antilles?)
