After the fall of the Jedi Order, Obi-Wan secluded himself on the desert planet Tatooine, secretly observing young Luke Skywalker. He would later take on the familiar role of mentor to the son of Skywalker, and begin the training the son of the one who was destined to bring balance to the force. You can preview the heroic Obi-Wan Kenobi Premium Format 1/4 figure by following the link below!

Imagine how nice it will look face to face with the 1/4 Vader under a display case.

It looks awesome and the face looks spot on! As soon as this is made available I am ordering one. I wonder what type of exclusive he will come with?

I bet you are right. If thats the case, I gotta have one with the cloak!

I agree the cloak would be a logical guess. IMHO, it would make purchasing the exclusive version a must for anyone wanting this statue. I don't think it would look nearly as nice without the cloak.

I doubt that, who would buy one without a cloak?

It wouldn't be the same statue without the cloak.

WOW! I love it. I've been waiting for a Obi Wan like that with the cloak.

I have purchased a couple of LOTR items from them and the craftsmanship and attention to detail are immaculate. I'm sure Obi-Wan will not disappoint.

Looks like an expensive doll to me.
I hope it looks much better than that when it hit the stores.

The exclusive could be the robes, but could also be something like the Jedi Training Remote and/or something else. Since he wears the robes during that entire scene he should come with them is all editions.

(Or maybe they'll really make "Obi-Wan with The Force" and that will be included as the exclusive)

Re: Sideshow 1/4 Scale Obi-Wan Kenobi Announced

Sideshow is really impressing. Man, I only wish these were cheaper! I avoided the Luke, Han, Vader and Grevious but I'll have to give in and grab this Obi. I looks so much like Alec Guinness how could you pass!?

Re: Sideshow 1/4 Scale Obi-Wan Kenobi Announced

I am not too impressed with this one.

Like many I don't see these being worth the amount of money they are being charged...

The Han and Grievous are amazing....but the Luke and Obi are ....blah....

The Vader is ok, but like some have said...looks like a doll.

I am glad these don't rock my boat...saves me money and headaches...

Re: Sideshow 1/4 Scale Obi-Wan Kenobi Announced

If you click to that page you see that cool Vader video but if you read behind the screen you see:

This replica features Obi-wan's Jedi robe, recreated in 1/4 scale to the finest detail by Greg Mowry. The robe is artfully displayed in the 'death heap' as it appeared at the end of the fateful scene of Vader's triumph over Obi-wan. The robe also features the dusty foot prints of Vader, that were made as he kicked the garment to verify that his kill was final. The replica comes mounted on a base featuring Death Star flooring texture as well as Obi-wan's discarded light saber. Our production team has crafted the base to interlock with our Darth Vader exclusive Premium Format figure base so that Vader can gloat in his triumph.

This Exclusive Obi-wan with the Force Premium Format replica comes with an electronic audio chip of blaster sounds and Luke's cry of despair!

I agree with a similar post above that this whole thing could be included as the "Exclusive" piece.

This statue will look great with the Vader exclusive!
After the Attakus Obi-Wan, i'm very happy that SSW will make a more Alec-like version of the master jedi.

Re: Sideshow 1/4 Scale Obi-Wan Kenobi Announced

Wow, go out of town for a while and miss all the cool stuff going on


This Obi-Wan looks pretty great. Face maybe a little fat, but I'm thinking it's more the lighting. This comparison image was posted over on the Sideshow Freaks forum. The expression looks dead-on. I just worry a little about the cloak looking as "heavy" as it needs to. I guess we shall see... but I have no doubt whatsoever that it will look awesome posed with the Vader with the lights dimmed and the sabers glowing

If the Luke figure was any indication, I'm sure we'll see a few minor adjustments before the final version is set. This looks to be another great release which means I'm probably going to have to decide if I want to let go of my Grevious pre-order and go for this or simply skip Ben.

I've been thinking about canceling my SS grevious after seeing the obi-wan as well.

Agreed, Matt Falls did an excellent job on the sculpt. Now to find an acrylic display case big enough to house them both.

Re: Sideshow 1/4 Scale Obi-Wan Kenobi Announced

Since many exclusive owners will choose to pose them together, what do we do with the mouse droid and training remote? Pose them togeter? I can see it now:

Mouse Droid vs. Training Remote - who will win the battle of the exclusive accessory?

Re: Sideshow 1/4 Scale Obi-Wan Kenobi Announced

hmm... something wrong about the eyes... too puffy, or frowny.. or something. And I'm not too sure about that mouth... do the 'old man' lines look over done to you?

and probably the worst thing from a display point of view... why on earth have they made the hood so pointy??

he looks like an elf. For that price I'd want something a lot more accurate than that...
