With the addition of the robe, my answer is yes, I'm down for one.

Hooray! they finally add a soft good jedi robe on same AOTC version of Obi-Wan!

I hope they do the same thing for EVO pack AOTC version Anakin and TLC Plo Koon!

Better late than never, right?

Photo Archive: The Vintage Collection - Obi-Wan Kenobi
Today's Photo Archive update features the final figure from wave 4 of The Vintage Collection. Continuing the theme of characters from Attack of the Clones, here's a "Greatest Hits" version of Obi-Wan Kenobi that includes a little bit of "newness" to him. Read on to get the full review!



and that's all folks!

Shouldn't Obi-Wan's tunic be darker and contrast more with his pants? The 2002 Obi-Wan figures seemed to have the right color shceme.

The TVC version looks off to me, even though it is better than the TLC version. The Geonosis 2-pack version had a better tunic color but the pants were off.

Thanks for the pictures, looking at all those AOTC Obi-Clones all in one spot I must say wow they all look like crap until we get to the Legacy version. It sure did take tem a while to nail Ewan's likeness and make a pretty decent figure.

Sorry Hasbro, I am through buying figures I already have just because you added a few minor little features to dupe me into giving you more money. From now on it it isn't new I am not buying, enough with the kit bashing and repacks in the Vintage line, this was supposed to be something special, not a dumping ground.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

Looking at the back of the card, wasn't the first appearance of this figure in the Saga line with Zam's Assassin droid, not the Outlander Club version?

I still think the colors are off. I'll wait until they paint him next time. 2 years from now I would bet.

That is correct sir! the first version was the one with the assasin droid, this is clearly a mistake, but it is not the first one as there is another one but I don't recall which one is it.

EDIT: I remember now the Stormtrooper, first release was a star wars card and not the ESB one.

Got this figure yesterday. I like it alot, but I wish it didn't suffer from apey arm syndrome.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

What's everyone's opinion on the proper hair color for prequel Obi-Wan Kenobi? I think this release is a bit too dark. The clone wars versions (both TLC and animated) go way too red, as does the latest TPM release. I think the TAC ROTS gets closest to being accurate. I'm thinking of repainting the rest of these heads to match. Thoughts?

Thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed the mistake. The first AOTC Obi-Wan figure was '02/#03 "Obi-Wan Kenobi (Coruscant Chase)."

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

I know this debate is more or less pointless at this point, but what's seen in this photo looks like a "darker" shade of (insert whatever name of color here). Where as the color on the actual figure's undershirt looks like a much "lighter shade. Take a look & compare for yourself in these 2.........

Darker:

Lighter(click to blow up):

In any case, I'm all set with this figure, as I already have 3 from TLC single card & 2 from the Geonosian Sets, so I'm done either way.

Looks like the best match IMO is the VC/SAGA ROTS Pilot head.

Definitely looks like three shades of color going on in for the tunic, the outer one looks beige, while the center is more of a tan, and the inner one looks off white/eggshell.
With the pants going for a 4th color being maybe a cream, I do wish the SG skirt matched the color of the lower tunic on the figure though.
As for the head I don't think any modern figure has nailed the hair color like AOTC line did.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

As far as colors for this figure go, the Rebel Legion lists these for a costume:

# Beige crinkle outer tunic (with shoulder tucks), tabbards (extending only to waist in back) and obi sash.
# Off-white crinkle inner tunic.
# Off-white pants.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

That pic is a little misleading due to the lighting, the outer tunic is all one color and there the underneath fabric is lighter. There is no in-between tunic.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

This is the definite release for an AOTC Obi-Wan IMO. The inclusion of the robe was very nice on this release. Has anybody tried to put the TAC's or SL Mustafar duel head's on this body?

Out of all the figures from this wave I thought would pegwarm, this was the one. But I haven't seen it anywhere! The entire wave. This and the SBD I thought would pegwarm. I guess my estimations were wrong on this obi wan for a change. Good for you Obi.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

I had never any interest in buying this figure just because the pictures I've seen make his hips look too wide and legs too big.
However, I picked him up in the store and liked how he looked with the robe on (great headsculpt) so I made the purchase.
No regrets, as this obi wan is the best prequel obi figure to date. The sculpt under the robe is actually really nice and I found the pictures do not do the figure justice.

I wish Hasbro had included an unlit hilt for Obi like they did with the other Jedi in the AOTC wave.

I definitely like this Obi better than the ROTS one.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

I went to Walmart last night and they had finally put out a case of Wave 4... unfortunately only Obi Wan and the Super Battle Droid were left, so I passed on the droid and picked up Obi. The legs DO bother me some, but I like his looks. This is the only Obi from AOTC I have. Now the only Obi I need is an ANH one... which I bought on ebay a few months ago, only to receive a bag of G.I. Joe guns!

LOL The seller had accidently sent my figure to somebody else. He was a pretty nice guy actually and gave me my money back, but he wasn't able to get the other guy to send him my figure.

ANH Obi (TLC or Resurgence) is in one of the new Target 3-packs for $20. It comes with VOTC Han and X-Wing Luke as well.

I had heard that, doc46. I'm considering getting that set, although I have the Han already. It's the main reason I haven't tried to get another one on ebay yet, but I'm still not decided on which course to take...

This is a question I've had recently... is there someone who does custom robes?

None of the robes I have a right. I like the cut of one, but the fabric of another, etc.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

So is this the best episode two Kenobi out there? Or is the legacy or Geonosis 2 pack one better?

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi (AOTC) - VC##

I think this VC figure is a repaint of the Legacy version, I don't have it, or the Geonosis version, actually I don't have any of the three...but anyway, I believe it's the same as the Legacy one.

I'm wondering if this...
IMG_14623.JPG

...would play things with the same monotone Stephen Hawking-esque voice as the CommTech chip reader. That thing was a cool idea but man, the execution was pretty rough. Anytime I'd put a chip up to the thing all I could think of was the Radiohead song "Fitter, Happier." I half expected Watto's chip to include the phrase ,"a pig...in a cage...on antibiotics...."
