Yeah, Ben's probably the lesser of the two evils, but I'd still take an all-new Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi in the line at some point. Softgoods, more articulation too... Just that perfect figure for "Old Ben". I think that if they re-release the spirit OTC Ben in a living form, that's fine for the plastic fans but I'll still want that version of him that has a more detailed/accurate softgoods skirt, full leg articulation, a hilt for his belt, and maybe a better cloak... They just have to deliver something MORE than the VOTC figure because for $10 we shoudl have gotten perfection.
On Luke I just don't know where they were going... I mean, why not sculpt the torso? Why the shirt softgoods ya know? He's perfect in articulation, they just need to drop the unnecessary cloth shirt and sculpt it. Hell I'd do without the ball/socket torso gladly if it meant he sported the plastic shirt. He'd be on par with Han if that was the case, but sadly he's probably my least favorite of the first VOTC figures.
Fortunately I feel that the VOTC line was all uphill from the ANH wave, aside from a protocol speedbump.
