During the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi ascended to the ranks of Jedi Master, and he and his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, were dispatched on many missions during the terrible conflict. The long and tumultuous career of the legendary Jedi Knight has helped shape the fate of an entire galaxy.
When Hasbro announced to Star Wars collectors in 2008 that The Clone Wars basic figure line would be approached in animated style, the collecting world groaned. From the beginning, Hasbro has stated that The Clone Wars property was to be geared for kids, but with a twist. In an effort not to alienate adult collectors, Hasbro expressed that the action figures would actually be a mix of animated and realistic, although to the more mature collecting community they came across as animated. To be fair, Hasbro indeed tried to mix the polar opposites looks of the characters. And while more often that not the animated style seemed to be the dominate genes in this particular mix, the awesome articulation and mostly action feature free basic figures seemed to subtly be geared to us anyway. But if you compare the characters of The Clone Wars in stills from the movie and television series, you’ll find that there are some relatively drastic differences.
That is why collectibles like The Clone Wars Maquettes line is so important for the collecting community. Gentle Giant Ltd. remained faithful to the exact look of the characters and they’ve been faithfully and permanently immortalized in a very artistic and even more accurate collectibles line. This high-end format which has an average MSP around $80 (expect that to increase over time like everything else does) is done extraordinarily well that you’ll be hard pressed to find fault with the sculpting, poses and astounding paint jobs they consistently deliver. Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Clone Wars) is another outstanding Maquette that brings a dynamic sculpt with a gorgeous paint job. His expression is especially excellent. There is determination and unwavering fortitude in his expression. Obi-Wan Kenobi means business and there is no second guessing that you need to get out of the way of his lightsaber swing.
Status: This highly-detailed maquette, based on the original Lucasfilm costumes and props, was sculpted and painted by Gentle Giant Ltd. We hope you enjoy it.
