Whilst perusing the pictures on Uncle George's official site... I caught a glimpse of a very nicely sculpted Obi-Wan figure. What struck me odd about this is that... WHOA! This boy has a soft goods robe!! The pose isn't tacky!
This figure appears to be from the time Obi-Wan sets up his transmitter on Geonosis to send a transmission to Anakin. The figure seems to have: 1) the transmitter, 2) a lightsaber, 3) a transmitter activation device AND 4) the aforementioned soft goods robe.
This is how I feel the figures SHOULD have been done. Sorry. Maybe I am a traditionalist, but this one looks great. I hope we get a few more of these... especially since, while the "Fightin' mad" Jedi figures a nice, I would prefer to have them in more neutral poses.
I've included the pic (and don't get started about property of Lucasfilm, etc...) in case you haven't seen it.
