Hot Toys Obi-Wan Sixth Scale Figure from ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ Final Product Photos
“If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine. ” – Obi-Wan Kenobi
The legendary Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi is finally here. Hot Toys and Bloggers around the world have just released the final product photos of the Hot Toys Obi Wan, which should be shipping to our door in a matter of weeks.
The movie-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Sir Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: A New Hope and features a newly developed head sculpt, specially sculpted palms, finely tailored costume, LED-lighted lightsaber, and figure stand.
There is a disturbance in the force with collectors surrounding this figure. Some people don’t quite think it looks close enough to Sir Alec Guinness’ likeness. I would tend to disagree and then tell you to take a look at this same version Sideshow Collectibles produced several years ago. The figures are world’s apart, and if you take the photos and put them by movie stills, it’s obvious who it is.
Prototype photos can be found here for your reference.
I’m personally very excited to get this figure for my Hot Toys collection. I just hope that with the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens figures getting announced recently that Hot Toys doesn’t forget about the Original Trilogy.
The gallery below features some of the images that were put up on Hot Toys’ Facebook page. For the complete gallery of the Hot Toys Obi-Wan final product, head on over to the gallery on their Facebook page. More information and pre-orders for this 12-inch figure can be found here.
