General Kenobi! Hot Toys has announced that Obi-Wan Kenobi, as he appeared in The Clone Wars, is the next Star Wars premium action figure to be added to the company’s massive catalog. The best thing about this figure is that a clone-trooper helmet is included as a swappable head. There’s just something about the combination of clone trooper armor, Jedi robes, and a lightsaber. I always found the visual striking.
Unlike the previously announced Mace Windu figure, Obi-Wan’s armor does not look removable. At least, you can’t easily convert this figure into a standard Revenge of the Sith Kenobi. The famed Jedi General is not yet available for pre-order, but he should be soon, thanks to Sideshow Collectibles.
Expect Obi-Wan to show up during the first half of 2024.
General Obi-Wan Kenobi will come with the following:
– Newly painted head sculpt with separate rolling eyeball function
– Highly-accurate facial expression with detailed wrinkles, beard, and skin texture
– Body with over 30 points of articulations
– Approximately 30.5 cm tall
