Nien Nunb (VC106) - Hasbro - The Vintage Collection (2012)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: Obi-Wan Kenobi

If you were actively collecting during the fabulous The Original Trilogy Collection in 2004, you’re aware that Hasbro introduced the first “Vintage Kenner” carded figures, much to the excitement and amazement of the entire Star Wars collecting community. The Hasbro team back then realized the importance of the 1978 Star Wars toy line and the main characters that should be part of it. When choosing four characters for placement on the replica 1978 STAR WARS cards, Hasbro wisely chose Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, and Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi. These four main heroes are synonymous with the Star Wars branding. The modern counterparts started a fire in collectors to see every original Kenner figure updated in vintage Kenner packaging. So why are these four characters still conspicuously absent from The Vintage Collection after eight active years? (more….)

Welcome to another entry in our The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Hasbro recently committed collectors that they will be “focusing” on characters in The Vintage Collection that fall under “The Ninety Six” banner. If you’re new to this, it means that there needs a modern counterpart for every classic Kenner figure. Between 2020 and 2021, Hasbro’s made an admirable effort by focusing on these characters. But there is more work to be done, and we’ll figure out where we are step by step.

We’re right in alignment with Hasbro in our vintage Kenner database. There are 21 figures under the STAR WARS banner, 29 figures under THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK banner, 31 figures under the RETURN OF THE JEDI banner, and 15 figures under THE POWER OF THE FORCE banner. (Sy Snootles, Max Rebo, Droopy McCool, and Blue Snaggletooth bring the number to an even 100 figures.)

Read our assessment, and then be sure to add your thoughts to the comments. Let us know if you agree or disagree. If you’re a customizer, show us your custom definitive figure in the comments as well! Who knows? It might give Hasbro some ideas.

Here are some quick pics of the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary line of Kenner-inspired The Black Series 6″ figures, something Hasbro said they would never do for 3.75″ collectors despite constant begging, but have done it for 6″ collectors. Whatever. Enjoy the pictures courtesy of friend and JTA reader Alientek. They’re awesome figures!

The Vintage Collection Obi-Wan Kenobi (VC103) went sky-high on the aftermarket, so it makes sense we’re seeing the figure again eight years later. Hasbro re-released the figure with improved paint operations and Photo Real. For The Vintage Collection “2.0” lineup, Obi-Wan Kenobi received a significant amount of updating. They even changed the pitch of the character’s head on the card art. In our opinion, the Photo Real deco is stunning, if you can find the right sample that is. The colors are quite different on the re-release. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 76-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2020) featured, comparison shots, diorama shots, and a breakdown of what separates the two releases in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi - TBS [P3] - Titanium Series (02)

Remember how Hasbro treated 3.75″ super-articulated collectors when it came to celebrating the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope? The Titanium Series Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the ways to remember that nightmare. It was a disappointment on MULTIPLE levels. (more….)
