2022 Kenner Retro Collection - Kenobi
« on: September 30, 2021, 05:26 PM »
The saga of Jayson's efforts to spoil all Hasbro's reveals continues!

From YakFace.com - Kenner Retro Collection Rumors.

Six more from The Mandalorian (which he's already revealed - check out the Kenner Retro Collection - The Mandalorian thread)  and then 6 more from something else (Jayson's leaning towards Book of Boba Fett, but ROTJ is still a possibility as well I suppose).

6 more from something else (Jayson's leaning towards Book of Boba Fett, but ROTJ is still a possibility as well I suppose).

I guess the correct answer was Kenobi, not ROTJ or TBOBF.  :P

Latest rumor list from Jayson for this wave...

Obi-Wan Kenobi Wave
“Pocatello” – Reva (The Third Sister)
“Boise”
“Nampa”
“Moscow”
“Caldwell”
“Chubbuck”
**Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, Grand Inquisitor, Fifth Brother, ??????

$13.50 with tax for Retro Reva, vs $15.50 for the Vintage Collection Reva.

That doesn’t seem like correct pricing for 5-POA compared to TVC

Feels like Retro has quickly become a price gouging exercise.

“Boise”
“Nampa”
“Moscow”
“Caldwell”
“Chubbuck”

It looks like this wave also includes Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Grand Inquisitor, Fifth Brother, and something called NED-B.

Odd they're throwing in another Vader.  Wasn't he part of the first retro wave?
This is the way.

I am hoping another Vader means some sort of Removable Helmet, lightsaber in hand update to the Retro sculpt.

This week's Obi-Wan Wednesday announcement is for Kenobi Retro figures (and other stuff):
- Obi-Wan Kenobi (Wandering Jedi)
- Fifth Brother
- Grand Inquisitor
- NED-B
- Darth Vader

Pre-orders tomorrow, and since there is no mention of exclusivity I assume these will be broadly available.

Thanks for the heads up!

I already pre-ordered a case of this wave when the Retro Reva went up for preorder on EE.  I'll have to look to see how many individual figures I'll need to preorder to have an opener for each.
