#55 Obi-Wan Kenobi-Red Leader Pilot
« on: July 18, 2005, 12:23 AM »
Hasbro.com has posted some new images of #56 Obi-Wan Kenobi-Red Leader Pilot without his cloak.

It looks like we finally have a ROTS SA Obi, to go with Evo ROTS Anakin. :D

From what I can tell he looks to have ball-jointed shoulders/elbows/knees(can't see his right knee though)/ankles, and attachable lightsaber hilt.

I was sure ReHashbro would definately drop the ball on this one, but to my surprise they might actually deliver.  (hope I haven't spoken to soon  :P)

Sweeeet! So far I've skipped the ROTS Obi-Wans -- not only due to the action features, but more so because the headsculpts simply aren't very good. This looks like the high-quality one I've been holding out for.

Awesome. Now to find it at the increasingly bleak retail level.  :)

Excellent. Too bad it will be a bitch to find. And hopefully it will sit in the Jedi Starfighter, which I hope to pick up on clearance.

Nice. I had a good feeling about this one from the first pics we saw of him. I wouldn't have minded a little paint weathering on his outfit though, but I'm just being nitpicky. I'll have to pick this one up.

Very nice indeed...  Looks like potentially ball/socket ankles there, which is great.  A nice SA Obi-Wan.  There's yet to be a really good AOTC Obi-Wan even, and ROTS has the semi-OK Collection 1's but this guy look great.

Not a fan of the robe myself...  It looks ok, but for siting in a cockpit it looks impossible.  Bust out those softgoods robes I guess.

Tons of articulation and what appears to be a hilt you can clip to the belt too?  Nice.

Also noticed the Turbo Tank Driver's now redubbed the AT-RT Pilot...  Interesting.  Makes sense since he appeared to be just that in sculpt.

Also noticed he has an odd removable chest armor piece.  Veeeedddddddddy Interestink!

I like this one.  It will be my first ROTS (well Prequel) Obi Wan.  It looks like it has what evey figure should have, Good Sculpt and Plenty of Articulation.

Also like the AT-RT Pilot.

This is a pleasant surprise, I wasn't sure what to expect from Hasbro with this figure.  It looks like we will indeed have a nice, SA Obi-Wan from ROTS, and that is a great thing.  From the Hasbro Q and A that GH.com had up today, it sounds as if the Evolutions assortment will just be the sets we know of (for now), so its good to know we'll at least have a close to "ultimate" Obi-Wan from one of the prequels...and like it was mentioned, it should go nicely with the evolutions Anakin.  Hopefully we can find this one at retail.  Things have really slowed up around here with the figures (pegwarmers) that are left.  I guess everyone has enough Polis Massans, Clone Pilots, and Mas Ameddas ;).

Or red saber Palpys.  Hopefully the #56 Obi will be packaged with his starfighter eventually.  I'd pick that up.

Galactic Hunter has a nice preview up (with plenty of pics) of the upcoming Obi-Wan (Pilot) figure.  It really looks quite nice, and it looks like we'll have a VOTC/Evolutions style Obi-Wan from ROTS on the way.  Can't wait for this figure, we've waited a long time for a nice Obi-Wan :).

I just wish the cloak was soft goods so he could sit with in in the starfighter, but I'm NOT complaining since everything else is VOTC quality.

Now if the red starfighters would go on clearance....
