You know what's odd, if the CW3D wave 1 hits right before the Legacy wave 2 we'll have two Clone Wars Obi-Wans in armour on the pegs at one time.
I'm thinking the same thing and this is a great example of WHY I think the animated style figures are so ridiculous.
Ok - so we're getting an Obi-Wan in Clone Armor where the armor and look matches the first Clone Wars cartoon.
But first we're going to get one that matches how he looks in the 3D Clone Wars cartoon.
Let's put them side-by-side:
Why is Lucasfilm being so cavalier with the new 3D cartoon changing the looks of the characters? I know people have made this complaint before, but now more than ever, I feel that these new looks for the major characters have been created primarily for the purposes of selling more toys. There is really no justification for Obi-Wan donning clone armor with his Jedi robes should be given a completely new look. For crying out loud, the first Clone Wars cartoon was anything but realistic, but that first design for Obi-Wan in Clone Armor has widely accepted by the fans, converted over to the realistic style and has (or soon will be) immortalized in the form of a statue, 12" doll and 3.75" figure. Why then was that same design not translated to the look of the new Clone Wars 3D cartoon? Why did they come up with a completely new look?!?!
I know it may seem like I'm harping on this issue, but let's say that the cartoon is a hit and GL decides that he wants to tell the tale of the Rebels between ANH and ESB. We know how Darth Vader looked in ANH, we know how Vader looked in ESB. But for this new cartoon, we're going to put Vader in gray armor with a red cape and a white helmet. Why? Well why not of course! Han Solo won't be wearing his trademark white shirt and black vest, heck no! We'll put him in a blue jumpsuit with a black sash instead of a belt - that will make him look extra dashing! Get these designs to Hasbro so they can make figures of them right away! - now if that happened, everyone would be up in arms about how the designs are so radically different from what we've seen before. So why doesn't anyone care that they are basically throwing out everything that was established in the previous cartoon series?
I just don't get it.
