This one looks pretty cool and unique, I'm not sure if that'll get me to buy but my interest is piqued.

No worries. I also wasn't able to post pre-order links for everything today like I'd normally do either. Then again, I don't know how many people really pay attention to the press image/release and pre-order links anyway. At least on here. My FB collecting group on the other hand has been pinging me non-stop for info for the last three hours. 🙃

Can’t speak for anyone else but I def appreciate all the work you put in. Particularly the photos and links as it’s nice to have a centralized place to look for things. FB is too much for me sometimes to deal with🙂
And @GalaxyShot , dude you seriously gotta stop making all these figures I’m on the fence about look so damn good. You’re killing me. Seriously though, great work as always!
As for this figure I like it much better than the other one. Better color palette, great accessories, better looking soft goods. I may have to chase this one down.

All updated @Oofa !

@GalaxyShot stunning photos as always! (y)

I'm really, really hoping that the MSRP does not end up being the actual price when it goes up. 😣

Spitze images, mr @GalaxyShot - you are spoiling us :D
I think I want this Obi figure. I just really like how it looks, despite being very basic.

Edit: It makes sense now why the gloves are showing on the Wandering version. They look like they are 100% the same figure.

I don't know if you're allowed to speak on this, but how many different poses do you shoot and deliver to them?
And how long ago did you get to shoot this figure for example?
I understand if you're under some sort of NDA and thus can't tell.

I can't get super specific. All of these photos are ones that I posed and shot. Hasbro photographers essentially get assigned products, and we shoot them. It's unusual for one set of photos to be multiple photographers per item. We're all shooting our own, different, things at different times.

As far as how many, I take an unspecific numbers of photos and submit them, they go out for review and approval. And then I see which ones go up the same time you do lol.

I am really digging this look too! Shame it is a Target exclusive, as it will most likely sell out instantly and I will have to track one down in store. I'll definitely give it a shot though.

I really like this version. The sand blue tunic combined with the cloak makes him look more unique and less washed up Kenobi if that makes sense.View attachment 423821View attachment 423822
I really like it. With the cloak (rather than an open-fronted robe) and the cowl-neck (rather than wrap-fronted) tunic, it's the first live-action costume since Luke's ROTJ outfit that really evokes the "knight" part of "Jedi Knight." 😎
No, my friend.
Well, how else would you characterize breaking the figure for the purpose of advertising? 🤔

The links already posted in the OP are now live. ORC added since they sometimes get exclusives.

Well it’s preorder time and the product page still isn’t live yet. 🤷🏼‍♂️
Edit, never mind, I must’ve been a few seconds early.

He’s live. But you can’t find him by search. Use the link at the beginning of this thread

Yep, definitely prefer this version over the tan outfit announced last week. The robe does a great job covering up the "worn out shirt neck" look of the sculpt and I'm a sucker for cool characters with backpacks. I wonder if there are insert slits in the cloak to put the straps of the backpack through like on the character artwork. If not, shouldn't be too difficult to add.

Yes Target sucks, if you order 2 at once its fine.
But if you order 1 and then try to order another it cancels the second.
Great logic there, what if I want 2 as separate orders...really annoying...

I started the check out process and changed my mind. I’ll wait til it shows up. I feel like this should be a pretty easy in-store grab and I’ve got way too many preorders on varying cards in varying states of payment. And Target’s bi-weekly or whatever charge drives me nuts.

Yep, I’ve cancelled more Black Series pre-orders this year than I actually receive.
