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….)

Rumor: Obi-Wan Series Is Coming, For Real This Time?

Since we all love rumors so much, here’s a report from website Cinelinx, which got the same info from two independent sources: apparently Ewan McGregor has signed a contract for an Obi-Wan series on Disney+. And yes, this is yet unverified, but this particular rumor, that Disney will produce an Obi-Wan series, has been circulating for a long time now, apparently production was set up already a while ago. This new story is widely reported by various news outlets tonight, but Cinelinx is the original source here, everyone else just quotes them.
If there will be an Obi-Wan series then we may expect Disney to announce something at D23. It is absolutely certain that there will be more live action Star Wars shows on Disney+, Obi-Wan would be a logical choice, since fans have been wanting to see Ewan McGregor to return as the Jedi master for a long time now. We’ll keep you posted! And with the Mandalorian and Cassian Andor it would be a good choice to have a show which features at least one Force user and lightsabers. Would you be looking forward to an Obi-Wan Series? And if you haven’t made up your mind yet about Disney Plus, would an announcement make you subscribe to the new streaming service?

Google Trends For Star Wars Characters

After the recent article about Star Wars trending on Google, I thought it might be fun to take a closer look at how various Star Wars characters are trending on Google, both old and new. The results may make some people happy, others not so much, some of the results are certainly surprising! Some spoilers: Russia loves Kylo Ren! Japan loves droids! And Jar Jar Binks is trending more on Google than Finn, Poe or Rose, even in 2019. How is any of that possible? Click through for a few comparisons between Star Wars Characters!

This is a surprise. JTA reader shagbert wrote in to let us know that the red and black boxed Episode I Obi-Wan Kenobi doesn’t come with the extra hand attachments. The tray doesn’t even have a place for this. Perhaps this was already announced by Hasbro, but it looks like to complete this figure, you’re going to need the 20th Anniversary version.

“You may already know this; I was a bit upset to discover it this evening when my BS Wave case arrived… The red box Obi-Wan doesn’t have the two extra hands that the 20th Anniversary version does, despite all of the sites having stock photos supplied by Hasbro of him using the pointing one. I had hoped that they were behind the cardboard, but nope; here’s the liner.”

YouTube Channel FXitinPost has released their very own reimagining and recreation of the duel on the Death Star between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader. While the original duel was quite static and short, this reimagined duel adds many new scenes and is more in line with what we saw in the prequels or in Rogue One. Some of the CGI  does look a bit wonky here and there (this is made by fans who don’t have the budget of ILM), but the overall result is quite impressive. How do you like this reimagined scene?
