Obi-Wan Kenobi action figures have been continously released over the years, with many good versions of this character, and many average versions as well. This figure, released in 2009, and based on the original Star Wars movie, is a fantastic representation of Obi-Wan and ranks among the best figures of this character released. Obi-Wan Kenobi is super articulated, with only his waist and wrists being swivel joints instead of ball-joints. The most impressive feature of this figure is the head sculpt, which really does look like a smaller version of Sir Alec Guiness. The removable soft-goods cloak is a bit bulky, but works quite well overall. The soft-goods skirt is not removable. Obi-Wan does have the basic holes in the feet so you can place him on an action stand, but the figure stands nicely without any additional help. The paint job is well done and the figure looks quite nice overall. Now, do you need another Obi-Wan (Ben) Kenobi action figure in your collection? If so, this would be a good version to pick up!
Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi listens to the message that Princess Leia recorded into R2-D2’s memory. Projected onto a table, the flickering holographic image of the princess asks for the venerable Jedi’s help, telling him he is their “only hope.”
