SW.com Obi-Wan Wednesdays
« on: May 4, 2022, 12:57 PM »
Fans of drawn out product reveals leading to onesie twosie pre-orders and tons of wasted dollars on shipping, rejoice!  :P

Just like Mando Mondays and Bring Home the Bounty, StarWars.com has announced Obi-Wan Wednesdays, the latest weekly marketing blitz for a new Disney+ show.

Obi-Wan Wednesdays will kick off on May 25th, two days ahead of the double-episode premiere of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and run through June 29th, each week highlighting items revealed in the limited series.

The next announcement today on StarWars.com

A handful of different things, but for Hasbro figures it looks like pre-orders will be available tomorrow at 1PM ET.  Reva (Third Sister) will be available in The Vintage Collection, The Black Series, and Retro.

Is this figure part of a wave with other previously announced figures?

Yes.

TVC Reva is in Wave 26 with AOTC Anakin, Mando Commando Jetpack Guy, Kenobi Obi-Wan, and Kenobi Vader

BS6" Reva is in the wave with Ewok Leia, Figrin, Security Droid, Kenobi Obi-Wan, etc

Retro Reva is in the Retro Obi-Wan wave with 5 yet-to-be-revealed figures.

Thanks Jeff!

I ended up preordering her from EE since there was some other stuff I wanted and they have a Free Shipping Deal going right now.

Guess this will be another wave I assemble piecemeal, just like the Omega wave.

He probably spoiled an upcoming Obi-Wan Wednesday reveal, but here's a peek at BS6" Grand Inquisitor figure from Rupert - I'm not sure if this is in the Ewok Leia/Reva/OWK wave or the next one after that.

Another look at Grand Inquisitor from Celebration - he is #9 in the OWK line - so Reva, Grand Inquisitor, Obi-Wan, Vader and at least 5 other figures from the show coming....

Itís kind of weird that they arenít revealed in some kind of order. The Grand Inquisitor is already #9 in the series but there are 5 others within that 1-8 range that are unknown.

Vader and Meatcutter Obi-Wan.  Pre-Order tomorrow, 6/2 at 1pm ET.

Kind of annoying they couldn't just include him in today's bolus of pre-orders, but whatever.

Are there any new parts on this Vader? It looks like a repack of the 40AC/2017 #45 Vader to me, but I can't remember little tiny details about the costumes anymore.

Seems to be a new head/helmet sculpt and possible new hands/gloves.  Not sure on the deco/paint.

What an ordeal! First I ordered OBW by himself, then realized I could add Vader too and get free shipping, so I placed a second order. But then my second order got cancelled. I guess maybe there is a quantity limit?

So I went back and canceled the first order. When I went to re-place the order a 3rd time Vader was sold out. WTH so I was back to ordering just the single figure again which is what I did in the first place!

Ugh.
