Well, I got him today, after winning the EBay auction last week.
This figure is astounding. And I cannot bring myself to take him out of the package.
The likeness to Sir Alec is amazing. The head is an entirely new sculpt. It is very similar to the POTJ Ben, which I have close to hand for reference; but the head on the VOTC Ben is narrower. The paint app is perfect on mine; no sloppiness about the hair at all, and he is not cross-eyed.
Interestingly, the hands actually look like an old man's hands: bony, and a little withered. And though I cannot see the tips of his fingers, he does have thumbnails.
Having been unable to convince myself to rip the bubble off the cardback (or even slit the tape holding the clamshell together), I can't say for sure how the cloak looks when it is free from its plastic prison; but it looks to be of similar material as that worn by the Saga Starfighter Pilot Obi-Wan.
The lightsaber looks like one of the better Hasbro issues. I am not an expert on them, though, so I can't tell where I saw it before. Maybe with an Episode I figure.
Now I need to get one of these to open, and see how he fits into the Landspeeder. Finally, a Ben that can ride in it as he did in the movie -- with his cloak on!
Now I just have explain to the wife why this is worth the 20 bucks I spent on it!...
