    Obi-wan Pilot

    When I press the button on his back, both of his arms raise as if signalling a touchdown (American football style). Is this normal? It looks silly since he only holds his lightsaber in one hand.

    its his lightsaber slashing action, just put the saber in both hands...use the magnet to attract the saber to his left hand if necessary

    Nope...the figure stinks...I think all of them have weak magnets. Mine sure does.

    Perhaps you could try using alittle piece of blue tac to hold the sabre down properly and more securely... That is what I did to some of my SW figs whose weapons weren't that tightly secured...

    My Obi Wan can hold the lightsaber with both hands just fine. You just have to play with the bicep-cuts and wrist joints until his hands are close together.
    Also, it's odd that your arms raise when you push the button, since they are supposed to go downward. You've got a unique figure on your hands!

    My magnet holds pretty well. I just got this figure yesterday and am relatively happy with it. Next to Chewy, you wouldn't know they were in the same wave, but he's not a terrible figure. I actually was wondering what the action feature was supposed to be as well. I guess I'll have to mess with his arms to make it make sense.

    i wouldn't say the whole figure sucks, just that the magnet and the slashing action suck.

    I was just frankly a little disappointed...especially since I'd waited for him for four months...
