Go first to the link and view the pic. Notice anything wrong???




He has no legs!!! (Or hands for that matter.) It looks like a shell of obi-wan...

Very strange. Either it is like that or someone was playing around with Photoshop...

That's either :
A) A mock-up
B) Boredom and a Photoshop proram
C) The worst way possible to make him fit in his starfighter

There's legs...on the first pic linked, you can see the inside edge of the boot of his left foot, and the bottom of the boot of his right foot. It's just that his tunic "flaps" extend past his legs toward the center of his body, and with the cloak hiding his legs, it gives that illusion...

you can see the right boot showing at the bottom of the robe. Obi-Wan has legs, they are just covered by the robe. but i doubt the figure will fit in his star ship with the robe on.

The "shell" is just the Jedi Robes (Similar to the Phantom Menace Mace Windu and a couple of others). From the looks of it, the Robes are removable, and thar be full articulation underneath.

Frankly, I'd prefer the EpI Quigon-style jedi robes (Plastic "cape" portion, molded sleeves) of the Jedi Robes, but seeing as how this may be the FIRST basic obi-wan to look anything like him, it still looks like a great figure.

I think it rules. I love how the cloak looks, very film-acurate IMO. It is a pity he can't fit into his ship with the cloak on, but oh well at least he'll be a good Obi-Wan Jedi Robes figure. I also like how the headset is removable. Looking forward to this one.

Another argument for soft goods. His tunic should have been cloth, at least from the waist down. Nice removable cloak there.

I agree the figure looks very nice. I got sick of waiting for a figure that will actually fit in a starfighter so I bought the delux Obi, and Super Battle Droid, then cut the pole off and cut the block between his feet, it looks kind of junky out of the fighter, but inside it looks pretty nice. I'll proboly just keep that figure in there and steal the headset off the new one when it comes out.

Yeah, I can see his legs, though at first glance it looked like there weren't any. I hate how they still use the crappy Jedi starfighter headset design on all these figures, since the ones in the movies stop halfway across the forehead. At least this one goes across the top of the head, unlike previous efforts.

Thanks for posting the pic!
