I got my shipping notice.  Looks like mine will arrive on Monday.

Got my shipping notice and reminder that this thing cost nearly $100.  UGH.

Mine just arrived!  The armor is pretty cool...a very hard plastic and good detail.  The head sculpt is a great AOTC Obi-Wan likeness.  It does come with extra hands as well as an ignited and ignited lightsabers and the exclusive is really clever.  Cmdr Rex's hologram is actually attached to an extra gauntlet...I originally thought he would clip onto it.

I have it set up holding the ignited lightsaber in his left hand and right arm up like he's listening to Cmdr Rex's report.  Nice addition to my Sideshow/Medicom shelf.   ;D

Great!  Sounds like we might be able to swallow the $100 price tag then.

I got my General Kenobi yesterday and finally opened him today.  I am impressed with this offering.  I only have two real complaints - I think the eyes (or perhaps the whole face) is a bit too "shiny" and it makes him seem glassy-eyed.  My second complaint is cosmetic - my figures left thigh pad has a big brown smudge on it.  I may look at emailing Sideshow and see if they can replace it.

Things I like - I love all the interchangeable hands and guantlet (exclusive version).  I think they way they did the jump suit under the armor is just great!!  All, in all, I give this figure a solid A-

Got my Kenobi in the mail today and he is AWESOME.  Currently my favorite 12" figure of all time.  Amazing detail on the head and the cloth cloak plus armor is so sweet!  Nice to see the little mini Cody holo as well.

Mine does not have any smudges on the armor.  I didn't notice the shiny head either...but the way mine's displayed there isn't any direct light on it so it's not at all noticable.

Really an amazing piece. Almost has as much presence as Jabba.

Great photos! I agree - this is one of my favorite ones from Sideshow.
