I'm sure this has been discussed before but I couldn't find a thread on it.


Which one is rarer and how does it affect the cost. And is there a color between them? Like one that's not exactly white but not grey either?

There is a color between them yes, it's more towards white than gray imo. The white hair might be a bit more expensive than the gray hair, but not much, it's an earlier relkease than the gray. There is also the Lili-Ledy variation, which have a much darker gray hair and beard.

Is the color between them worth significantly less?

Don't know, I would say it's the same price. There are different shades of white and different shades of gray, some might be discoloration. No matter what, they are not significant difference enough to be interesting Imo, and I AM a variation collector, so to most collectors theree is only white + gray + Lili-Ledy (and of cause the dt lightsaber ;)).

The white hair is a little more uncommon(not rare by any means) but there isn't a price difference

I would say the really strong white one is not easy to find. But to be honest there is not only two shades of haircolor to those.....Ben has tons of grey shades....so when does white start or grey end?? Most bens are medium grey/whitish. If you hold these next to white they will look grey....if you hold them next to darkgrey they will look white....though

I guess you have to be more specific, there are different variations documented of Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi

is the white haired an earlier release?. so if you have a loose white haired ben its most likely to be from a SW or ESB card
