It is ok, but still not quite there with the resemblance. Being 12", just like the 1/6 Hot Toys figures, GG can do better IMO.

Kinda beating ANH Kenobi to death by now aren't they?

It's a nice statue, and not done, but still, they have some sort of fantasy or something at this point?

Good looking statue but I don't remember the part in ANH when he slices off a piece of Death Star wall. 😉

C'mon, Ben. It was part of that cut off scene recently found, you know. :)

Nice looking statue but I've already gotten too many Obi Wan representations, thus I'll be passing. Now, if this would have been a Cantina patron statue for the 1/6 scale many collectors have been wanting for years, I would've gotten it. But again, a nice looking piece.

I like the statue but I have the Kotobukiya A New Hope Obi-Wan 1/7 scale so I'm having a hard time justifying pulling the trigger.

The Koto one is an excellent sculpt with light up saber and the option to display him with hood up or hood down. There are only so many of a same character we can have taking up space (which we know for many of us it is an issue), unless of course you are planning on substituting the one you have for one you see as an upgraded version. Now if you are a focused collector, I can understand buying a bunch of the same character from different makers. I like this statue and the character is my favorite from the OT, but I already have too many representations of him that I'm happy to have in my collection. Personally, I'm not pulling the trigger on this one, although I can clearly see why the statue is attractive to others.

Hanging upside down in a cave on Hoth.

Totally agree. I love the pose and the base on this one. Me not pulling the trigger is mainly a space issue. If I didn't already have a large ANH Kenobi statue I'd be all over this.
