This Obi-Wan Kenobi figure was released in October 2009 together with a Freeco Speeder. Obi-Wan is based on the appearances in the animated Clone Wars TV show.
Kenobi is super articulated with 14 joints, including ball-joints in the neck, shoulders, elbows, knees and ankles. The figure has no balancing issues thanks to adjustable knees and ankles. The included blue lightsaber fits OK into both hands, but sits a bit loose.
Hasbro gave Obi-Wan a none-removable soft goods skirt which looks nice. The paint application is well done, but you won't find any dirt or battle markings on the figure. This Obi-Wan Kenobi figure is almost perfect, if it wasn't for the ugly hole in the back. Hasbro re-used the upper body from the previously released Obi-Wan figure where a jet pack could be plugged-in into the back of the figure. While it made sense for the previous figure, it doesn't make sense in this case and it leaves a strange after taste. Granted, you won't notice the hole if the figure is on your shelf facing you, but it's unfortunate that Hasbro's cost-reduced thinking prevented fans from getting their hands on a definite version of this character.
Despite the hole, it's still a super articulated Obi-Wan Kenobi figure based on the Clone Wars animated show with fantastic likeness to the on-screen counterpart. It's much better than the individually released Obi-Wan figure, and the fantastic Freeco speeder should be enough to convince you to get it!
Obi-Wan uses a Freeco speeder to traverse the snow-covered planet of Orto Plutonia while investigating an attack on a Republic outpost. The speeder has an enclosed cockpit designed to shelter the rider from the cold. The Jedi heads into a snowstorm, following the tracks in the snow that will lead him to the perpetrators of the assault.
