I just picked up an Obi-Wan Coruscant Chase figure last night, and I honestly do not know why people are saying he doesn't fit into the Jedi Starfighter. Mine fits PERFECTLY. All you have to do is squeeze his legs together a little bit and push his arms down a little ways into the cockpit (and the plastic is certainly flexible enough), and it's a GREAT fit!!!!
Is it just my figure that works or anybody else gotten their Obi-Wan to fit into the Starfighter?
Also, the magnets: yes the hand does have to be very close to the saber to grab it, but it holds onto the assassin droid very well. I don't HAVE to rest it on his head (like I read somewhere on these forums I believe). At most, the droid happens to rest up against it because of its size (it can't help touching his head)!!!
