"Old Wounds" was supposed to be set about 10 years after the events of Revenge Of The Sith.  This Owen looks like it was built on the AOTC Owen body, but with more of an OT Owen head.

Very good... he gets tossed up onto the EU shelf then.

Still waiting for an OT Owen.

This is not the AOTC Owen body at all. I have used that figure several times on customs, I know the parts very well. I am 100% positive this Owen does not use a single part from that figure.The only carry over from that figure is the cloth robe. This is a 100% new sculpt, OT style with a slight color change. I am so positive I made this nifty 30 sec Photoshop pic....(He looks awesome!)




I am more excited about him than Maul.

Yeah I was thinking it wasn't the same figure either JACK, and that side-by-side clinches it.  I'm not sure of the parts being perhaps from another figure, but I am thinking no...  Redecoed and that could be a nice upgrade to Owen from ANH.  A future repaint?  I'm betting so.  Other than the coat though, that's a pretty much new figure I'm guessing.

The thing that made me think it was at least partially new was Owen's pants being over the boots on the AOTC figure, and this one having articulated legs with pants in the boots...  The side-by-side clinches the torso though being new too, as well as the head it seems (you can see the hair's different as are the facial features and their placement).

Is it a redeco/predeco of the Fixer body from the Cammie & Fixer CP?

Scratch that.  :P

When someone asked about it in the showroom, Hasbro said it was a re-used prequel Owen, but yeah that appears not to be the case.  I'm guessing since they said "re-used" it must be from someone somewhere in the line and they just got confused on who it was originally.

I'd like to see him released on a Vintage card as that Maul is L to the AME.

I can't place who it would be re-used from...  The legs are generic, but the upper body's a little distinct.  I'd look at Cantina characters as a possibility but beyond that it looks new.  The legs could be from almost anyone they're so generic though.

Glad to see that I was wrong.  The coat looks like the only common element between this Owen and the AOTC Owen.  I think I'm probably suffering from a degree of information overload in the aftermath of Toy Fair.  It's a lot to take in over the course of a couple of days.

The sculpt on the Owen looks really good. With a little dry brush you can age him up quickly. The only difference I see from the ANH version is the color of the collar and a little less Grey. I am so happy I have another POTF2 era figure that I can purge!

I was pretty certain that the Owen was new, this confirms it.  Thanks Jack!

so, while I cannot see the comparison shot posted above at work, and you guys are saying this Owen does indeed appear to have an all new sculpt, do you think Hasbro is intending to release him on his own individual vintage card?  repainted of course.

No worries, I just saw the clear pics over at Yak of this and the Cammie set. Wow!
The sculpt on Own is dead on! I really am more excited about the Owen as I dais before. It's kind of a hilarious match up with these two. Crabby Old Guy with a Gun vs. Pissed off Horny Cyborg Sith Lord with double Lightsabers. That would be some mess to clean up after......

I'm hoping Owen gets re-released soon. I really don't need that Maul in my collection.

I'd like a single-carded Owen, too. He and Beru are due, in my opinion, for OT release, especially on vintage cards.
