Bandai: S.H. Figuarts Star Wars Revenge of the Sith Obi-Wan Kenobi Promotional Images and Info

And now you too can create the high ground scene from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith with this all new S.H. Figuarts Obi-Wan Kenobi action figure from Tamashii Nations! ::cue kids playing in dirt::

Okay, “all new” may not be true. It looks to me there is some reuse here, but it’s appropriate reuse. It’s the same dude we’ve gotten twice already, at least in his younger appearance. There’s a whole whopping one in his old look, but at this point I’ve committed to this damn train of thought and it’s 7:30 in the morning. Don’t complain. Just go with it.

Obi-Wan has the lit and unlit lightsabers, but what stands out to me here is the face. The eyes look a little more defined, but slightly…exaggerated? Don’t get me wrong, they look great, but a little different than the aforementioned previous Kenobis.

When we get up close, you can see the printing. That’s standard SHF fare though. Not meant to be macro’d.

I’m not loving the Force face, but I can appreciate how good the teeth look. I know that sounds weird. It’s like eating an okay meal but loving the mashed potatoes. You don’t hate the overall experience, in fact it’s satisfying. But a second helping of them tators, please.

The Three Stooges hand reappears here, and if I remember right, it’s actually appropriate this time around. It was EPIII he did this right? I swear I’m a fan of Star Wars and won’t accidentally call it Revenge of the Jedi ever again.

Okay, I can’t exactly promise that.

And what formerly rambunctious Jedi Master is complete without a similarly rebellious pupil who is quickly on his way to the Dark Side?

I just paid for Anakin and am anxiously awaiting a shipping notice. That has nothing to do with this article, really, just thought I’d give you an update on my current mood. New figures? Hell yes. #ToyBlessed

Obi-Wan will run about $55 and release in February 2019. Pre-orders go up Oct 1 overseas. Don’t ask me what day or what time that is for the rest of the world. I’ll lie to you.
