A rehash? New sculpt? What's your opinion? I say it's kitbashed between different Ep. 1 Obi's.

If I had it my way, it would be a 100% brand new figure with SA and soft goods-galore.

If it had to be kitbashed, it should have the head, and realistic braid of the EPI Jedi Knight Obi Wan, hollowed out into a ball joint, a repainted ROTS Pilot Obi Wan body, with newly sculpted boots, and a soft goods skirt and cloak.

Fingers crossed it's the Obi-Wan Kenobi Pilot body with a new head. If noy maybe the POTJ Obi-Wan that came with the chocolate cloak.

"Expect this retooled figure to sport a soft goods cloak. We’re hoping that Hasbro uses a lot of pieces from the superior ROTS Pilot Obi-Wan and a few odd pieces from the Jedi Vs. Sith Battle Pack, but at this point that’s just wishful thinking."

Maybe the ROTS pilot version with a new TPM head and cloth cape? Would be nice http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Why would anyone want the "few odd pieces from the Jedi vs Sith Battle Pack"??? The ROTS Pilot Obi-Wan body is perfection! GNT's idea of the ROTS Pilot Obi-Wan with a TPM head and softgoods cloak would be just fine. Heck, why stop there? Throw an AOTC head on that body as well...two birds with one stone.

Unfortunately TPM OB1's boots aren't the same he uses on ROTS. Also, pilot Obi-Wan's torso wouldn't work because it's "bulkier" than the TPM incarnation and doesn't show enough of his skin around the neck area, which you can see on every TPM OB1 figure. And if that isn't enough, pilot OB1's skit should be shorter. Come to think of it, only pilot Obi-Wan's arms are usable http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Still, I'd take a pilot Obi-Wan kitbash over older OB1 sculpts ANY day.


Now, as for the jedi vs. sith mention: I can see what they meant. He does have a torso and skirt that would work, as well as the boots he uses in TPM.

I therefore agree it's gonna be a pilot Obi-Wan / Jedi Vs Sith Obi-Wan mix.

Hasbro could use the following figures in order to get the Obi Wan outfit right:

With refined neck and boots.

There were also two pretty good likenesses so far. A better paint job woulf also help.

I was just thinking: Another route they could go is use Evolutions AOTC Anakin's torso and arms? Maybe, just maybe. The look is certainly more "loose" than that of pilot Obi-Wan's and much better than jedi vs sith OB1's torso as well.



EDIT: Damn, Tyrannus beat me to it!

Man, I would buy at least 3. But I think it should be TPM, AOTC, ANH. VOTC Obi is kinda funny looking, so I say, take another stab at it, and those other 2 costumes deserve a truly great sculpt. We've got a truly great ROTS Obi Wan so no need to monkey with that anymore, unless they want to give him greater hip articulation. ooooooo, that would be the best Obi-Wan ever.

Personally I think Agen Kolar's legs might be a tad more accurate -- the boots are much closer to the ones Obi-Wan wore in TPM.

I made this AOTC custom once, imagine it with a differently colored Jedi shirt and TPM head. Of course the torso and the forearms would need to be retooled.

03-01-2006, 04:32 PM
How about the head from the POTJ Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi Training Gear) (http://www.rebelscum.com/POTJobiwanjt.asp)?

Has it been confirmed that this will be a kit-bash, or is it still in the speculation stage?

Darth_Anton
03-01-2006, 05:48 PM
Technically, it's still speculation. However, based on the accuracy of the speculation on the waves so far, it's a safe bet he's a kit bash.

DarthMaulSithLord
03-01-2006, 09:49 PM
I am actually hoping for a plastic cloak similar to the one used on Agen Kolar. It was soft enough to still allow poseability.

Fabric cloaks are nice but Hasbro screws them up all the time. Good example is Evo ROTS Anakin. O the box he looks fantastic but once you get him out...it's crap.

The cloak is made of a good nice fabric, but the seams ruin it. On top of that the cloak has no neck or shoulder area, so the arms, body and hood just all overlap.

I had to take it off after fiddling with it for 20 minutes, otherwise i would've jumped from tallest building i could find (which would've been the 2 floor school across the road).

If it's a rehash then it's probably not going to be that great at all, espicially if they use any of the old EP1 Obi-Wan figures from the EP1-POTJ. So dont expect SA or anything unless they retool a figure or something.

Yes, so would I. I actually like the idea that any and every texture can be sculpted, molded in plastic and painted to realistic effect. Sometimes a small amount of fabric is enhances the figure nicely, but often...not.

I'm more interested in this figure's head sculpt and paint detailing. I'm hoping for just a bit more realism than the Episode I figures, although they weren't bad at all.

Of course, articulation is (almost) always a good thing too!

I'd say it was the blood red colour of the cards and multiple main characters flooding the market didn't help. Then when the film was released and got bad reviews forever more that really didnt help either.

TPM were alright for there time but arent anything special by todays standards.

I thought that TPM figures were a BIG step up from POTF2. Sure they looked kind of OK, but when compared with the previous 4 years of POTF2 the Episode 1 figures looked like gold. Ok so by today's standards they look fairly cheesie, but back then, great figures based on a poorly viewed film. I still salivate over the upcoming Naboo wave.

Picture of Obi Wan now on Galactic Hunter (http://www.galactichunter.com/absolutenm/articlefiles/5436-009.JPG)

While the cloak looks amazing, the figure seems like quite a disappointment. Bad choice of headsculpt (POTJ Naboo Obi Wan and Cold Weather Gear Expanded Universe Obi Wan) have likenesses much closer to Ewan McGregor, the body also looks as if it features zero balljoints. At least that what it looks like. Even Senators have balljointed heads and seeing this figure doesn't ain't a good sign for the rest of the articulation.

There's hope Hasbro will produce an ultimate Obi Wan in 2007 for those four-pack Tin Anniversary Collection sets.

Thats how lightsabers in the toy line used to be like (95-02), the flaring at the base only started back in around 2002 for the Saga/AOTC figures and has continued ever since. At one point all lightsabers were going to have a glowing rod in them like the Mcquarie Stormtrooper but that idea never toof off.

This is a kit bash between the POTJ Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi) and the Episode 1 Obi-Wan Kenobi with the soft goods braid with one of those new soft goods robes seen in the coruscant wave.


You're half-right... it's a kitbash between the Episode 1 Obi-Wan with the braid & the Episode 1 Jedi Duel Obi-Wan (the first available) with the swivel elbows & wrists. Those hands are clearly not the POTJ Obi-Wan's, judging by Rebelscum's Archive photos.

A big 'pass' for me. I was hoping for a kitbash with ROTS/TSC Obi-Wan's great SA sculpt. New or tweaked legs would've worked, although technically the tunic would've been wrong (the tabard-sash thingie drops in the front AND in the back in TPM; heck, it may in ROTS as well, I never checked the film, but the ROTS figure's great nonetheless)

POTJ Obi-Wan has a sculpted braid, Qui-Gon's saber, and swivel elbows but NO swivel wrists.

I think Hasbro could have done a different Ob-Wan for example like the light up one that was canceled back in TPM era only without the light up feature. More peolpe might be willing to get a figure that has not been released than a kit bash. It may be a repaint but it would be one that was never released. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Wait a second. Besides being able to difinitively say which head sculpt it is and that it has swivel wrists, how has anyone come to the conclusion that this is a repack or a kitbash of any certain figure. Are there pics without the robe available that maybe I missed. The pics posted above(with soft goods) are of the Episode I Jedi Knight Obi-Wan, they are NOT of the figure in the upcoming wave. So I'm rather confused, how is anyone able to say what this figure is a kitbash of?
For all we know it could have fully articulated knees, shoulders, elbows, etc. Wishful thinking, sure, but we simply do not know, do we?

If anyone could please explain to me why some have come to the conclusion that this has parts of previous figures(besides the head & wrists), I would like to know. Maybe I just missed something/some pic? Thanks in advance.

I'm comparing photos of the Jedi Duel Obi-Wan with what we can see of this one's arms. The cut of the sleeves, the shape of the hands, and even the sculpt of the torso (which was pretty similar on all the TPM Obi-Wans, to be fair) tells me it's most likely Jedi Duel arms at least. We COULD be surprised like we were with Pilot Obi-Wan, but I doubt it. The wrists/hands are definitely 100% NOT Pilot Obi-Wan; while that doesn't rule out added articulation, it screams "Jedi Duel" to me.

And TK_842, how were you duped by Luke? It was reported since Toyfair that it was the Commtech body underneath... looking at the legs and the visible bits of the arms was enough to make that apparent!

06-03-2006, 11:27 PM
If this is a kitbashed EP1 figure I'm kind of disappointed. Besides the Battle Droids with sturdier plastic there are only 2 or 3 figures from that line that could be repacked and still hold up to today's standards. The EP1 Obi-Wan figures don't fall into that category IMO.

And this Obi-Wan is my favorite. I just think that he's such an important character in the Saga he needs a better figure treatment. Same with Qui-Gon. We don't have a really great version of him yet.

06-04-2006, 12:21 AM
I think the Jedi Duel version of both Obi and Qui-Gon still hold up to what Hasbro's making today. compare the articulation of a Jedi Duel Obi-Wan to say... the new Saga Carbonite Han, or Bren Derlin.

Carbonite Han is a scene-specific figure and Derlin is a 3-second background character. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are stars, they both deserve new, well articulated sculpts on par with or better than the ROTS Jedi figs we had last year.

That would be the coolest thing ever IMO. It's be a tough call between ROTS and ANH though. We have ultimate versions of both figures (Pilot Obi and VOTC ANH Obi).

Toonimator
06-04-2006, 01:35 PM
You've got a funny idea of 'ultimate' http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

ANH Obi-Wan can still use a LOT of improvement. The VOTC one has awful swivel-elbow arms, no knee or ankle articulation, and a super-tiny head. Not to mention, the old POTF2-era saber! They need to make one that's closer to the Pilot Obi-Wan in terms of articulation, head-size, saber & hilt. He just doesn't need the ball-jointed torso or the plastic 'skirt'... the soft-goods skirt is the best part of the VOTC one.

Well, hopefully at least his shoulders and/or elbows will be ball jointed(although I doubt it, I'm sure he's just the kit-bash everyone already guessed).
If he does have good arms, though, then I guess he's not all that bad to pick up. I'd just swap the legs with ROTS Obi-Wan pilot, paint them, do a little something with the boots, and voila: SA Obi-Wan!!!!

He's just this one, repainted, with a kitbashed head from the soft-goods Jedi Knight Obi-Wan from the end of the Episode I line. You can easily tell from the sculpt of the legs (look at the creases around the knee, and the stance, despite the Archive pic being head-on) and the hands & sleeves.

That said, I MAY pick it up since the paint aps & head look better than the original.

The angle of the arms and hand sculpts look very similar.

Aren't the pants the wrong color?

As do the fold patterns on his pants at his knees ... right above his boots.

It's the Jedi Duel body. the POTJ one may've used the same legs, or even torso, but the arms in earlier pictures show swiveling wrists which only the Jedi Duel has. The right hand in the hi-rez loose photo doesn't quite look like a Jedi Duel hand, but it could just be distortion due to the comlink causing that.

This is a bad looking figure IMO. TPM Obi-Wan deserves a new SA sculpt, yet Hasbro gives us this and can't even paint his pants the right colour. They should be a off white for TPM Obi-Wan not the Tan ROTS Obi-Wan colour seen in this figure.

I also wish Hasbro would have released the Trophy Series Obi-Wan over this piece of garbage.

That one looks like crap! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif Is he holding his braid??

I quite like this new version and I don't own an Episode 1 Obi Wan so it will be a welcomed addition to me collection.

It's been awhile since the last EP1 Obi-Wan Kenobi. Meh sucks that it's an older version with a few touches but it still looks alright to me. Have to get it.

Looks cool enough. Unless Hasbro suddenly starts churning out ALOT more TPM figures in the next few years (which is doubtful) this is probably the best TPM Obi-Wan we're going to get for a while, if ever.

In light of that, I'll be getting it for sure.

Yep! I'm definitely getting one carded, and perhaps another to open.

http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif Although most of the Naboo wave is not great, as far as choices of figures, sculpts, etc... I'm starting to look forward to it, simply because there hasn't been any TPM figures for far too long! Even dodgey, half-baked TPM figures are better than no figures at all, though it pains me to acknowledge...

Interesting. The packaged sample in the background shows the Obi-Wan head with the "real hair" braid. Also there doesn't appear to be articulation in the right wrist in the packaged sample, therefore I stand behind my guess that the arms are from the POTJ version.

This has happened several times actually. For example, the Dooku in front of that tin can thing is the ROTS Dooku while the one in the tin can is the Evolutions version. And there are others also if you keep your eyes peeled. Hard too say which will be the final product.

MisterKenobi

I am getting anxious for this wave to hit so I can buy at least 3 of these, providing that they really did change the head and hopefully change the pants color.

I picked up one of these yesterday. I can deal with the lack of articulation, but his head looks kinda silly cocked over to one side. (Can't really complain, though, since I saw the pics before he came out...)

They will already be repacking this version for the upcomming Tin Sets along with another kitbashed Qui-Gon. It might be worthwhile to wait.

Are you serious? The original Jedi Duel headsculpt looked too cartoony, while the one with the real braid looks like a realistically sculpted Ewan.

???

Neither one of them look particularly LIKE Ewan, but the Jedi Duel one at least looks neutral and not cocked and downward facing with a stupid expression.

Need I mention the high flat-top haircut he has in the Jedi Knight version?

I personally like the Duel version WAY better. But nevertheless, Hasbro needs to step up and give us a new one anyways.

just noticed that BBTS has this 1 in stock but not rest of the wave. Anyone ever ordered a full wave from them to compare w/ ordering an individual figure? would assume that full wave orders would fill first as the cases arrive from hasbro since the eta given was sep for full wave and oct for individual figs. I just started ordering from them this summer and this is my first full wave order. My previous individual fig orders arrived about same time reports started for same wave at retail.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has been added to our Photo Archives:

http://www.rebelscum.com/TSC/tsc047obiwanloose-m.jpg (http://www.rebelscum.com/tsc047obiwan.asp)

I've also tried a few new things for this update.

1) I've added ALL the TPM Obi-Wans to the comparison shots, something that I'm considering doing for nex year's line. This shows the progression the character has made in that outfit over time. Since this figure includes a removable cloak, it gave me a chance to do two versions.
http://www.rebelscum.com/TSC/tsc047obiwancomp1-tn.jpg http://www.rebelscum.com/TSC/tsc047obiwancomp2-tn.jpg

2) I've included a "recipe" shot, showing which parts were used to create this figure. Interesting fact I didn't know: The Naboo Obi-Wan legs were used for the POTJ figure as well (and again for the OTC Jedi Council repack.)

Perhaps Hasbro will see this and realize that every version we have of this figure is weak, and the newest version is no exception. I STILL think that the first Jedi Duel version is the best looking at this pic, I am quite sure of it.
