Cramer said:Great figure. I needed to replace his hands with the VOTC Ben, because I don't get the Force wave hand and I want him to hold a saber. When did he ever make that gesture, with that hand? Anyway, the VoTC Ben's hands are a little more pink, which actually looks accurate because Alec Guiness' hands were pinkish and swollen looking.
Some pics, for your viewing pleasure
That's no moon
And not forgetting this Obi is OT not PT! Lol! Even in ANH Ben's robes were all over the place when he came to the unconscious Luke. There's a simple quick fix for the under robe, cut it to ankle length, problem solved lol! It's what I plan to do at some point.Devo said:The PT obis look much better than this due to requiring less softgoods - even when the jedi robes inevitably look crap you can at least take them off and by the looks of it have great figures underneath - but Old ben has a long skirt beneath the robes and obviously for an SA figure this required SG - but it looks stupid - an overlong triangle dress with two poorly attached draping flappy things. And the fact he looks too young. When will the anti-SG part of the audience get their definitve old Ben?

Disappointing figure. The neck is ridiculous. Way too skinny and loose. It doesn't look right, his head is always looking down. It's bad. The puffy soft goods are also pathetic. The robe is useless. I actually photographed him fighting the Vader, but it looked terrible because of the cloak and the fact that neither figure could properly grip the lightsaber. Yeah, even his regular hand doesn't hold the thing. There should have been an alternate right hand included.
What's good? The likeness, the accessories, paint apps. The neck is a killer for me, plus the fact that he can't hold his weapon and has this permanent "using the Force" hand...not good. The God awful cloth robe seems to be the same one Mace Windu had, but it fits even worse. I really can't stress enough how lame the neck is.
Hey, I do my fair share of griping, don't worry!Devo said:I must admit you're more likely to see me complaining about a figure in these forums than praising a figure. But thats because complaining is actually the more interesting thing to do - it generates discussion..
THX_4077 said:For anyone interested, I wrote to Hasbro about the quality of this figure (and I don't care what anyone says; this loose neck is a SERIOUS issue and one that should be taken care of).
Hasbro apologized left and right and then offered a replacement, which is fine, but I really don't think that they've fixed the neck issue yet. Thoughts?

I think I'll just stick with the one I have! There's a little disclaimer at the bottom of Hasbro's email saying that if they don't have this figure, they'll replace it with another one of equal value. With my luck, I'll end up with a POTF2 Monkey Leia or something. Not that she's not cool!
