When I checked, the AT-RT Driver was in stock too, but I passed. The local WM is doing a toy reset right now, so I'll just be a little more patient and maybe it'll show there.

That is sad but I could not bring myself to paying $33 for 4 figures, it is just too much, especially in a movie year.  I already took the big hurt ordering some overpriced clone 4-packs and even though they spiced up my diorama, I still feel cheated and raped. :-X

Finally a decent Obi-Wan! He looks great dueling Evo Anakin.

Here's the one that Darth Delicious made using the new ROTS Obi Wan, and the head from the new Jedi vs. Sith 5-pk.




Wow - having a nice AOTC Obi-Wan like this makes (IMHO) the price of buying another figure and a Jedi vs. Sith battle pack JUST FOR THE HEAD, worth it!

See, now to me, this seems like a complete no brainer. Why not just release the Obi-Wan in the Jedi vs. Separatist five pack that's coming out as this combination?

I've added Obi-Wan to the Image Database. I still love this figure.  :)

Great pics Jared.  I'm really looking forward to finding this figure, it looks to be one of the best of the year.  Obi-Wan is probably my favorite "main" character of the prequels, and it is nice to see that we're finally getting a quality figure of him.  Can't wait to find it.  From the looks of the pics, this is a perfect example that Hasbro can give us VOTC style figures at the normal pricepoint (without all the special packaging anyways).  Now we just need Hasbro to do the same for the AOTC and TPM versions :P.

I couldn't stop posing him fighting with and against Evo Anakin last night. They're a great pair. 8)

I just got the Anakin Evo set today along with another Pilot Obi-Wan, just to maintain a duel between the two... ;D



The only problem I'm having with the 2nd Obi-Wan is his ankles are a bit loose so standing up has been a bit problematic for him.

Jeff: great pics in the image db, at first glance of the thumbnails, they look like real publicity shots from ROTS.

MMMMmmmmmm Super Articulated Dueling...  MMMMmmmmmm ***drool***

Many kudos to Jared's photo-skillz by the way.  He's been putting together the highest quality image database on the net I think, and working hard to do it.  Many thanks for that kind of work.

I just opened a recently purchased Obi Wan pilot, and I have to say...

It sucks.

It really sucks.

In the package with the cloak on, it looks great.  Perfect for the scene where Obi Wan appears at the end of the ship ramp to confront Anakin on Mustafar, looking serious in his cloak.

But when you take the cloak off, 2 things jump out at you immediately.  His legs from the knee down are WAY too skinny.  It really looks quite ridiculous in person.  In fact, with his cloak off, Obi Wan also looks way too short.  And his legs from the waist down are kinda bow-legged.  And then his right arm is also too short, very noticeably shorter than his left arm.

Hasbro has really continued their age-old tradition of doing a **** job on prequel obi wan figures and mace figures here.

My guess is that a lot of you who have been praising this figure haven't had one in your hands yet, because it is really a bigtime disappointment.

Two thumbs down.
