      great toy

      He will never be quite as good as Sir Alec Guiness, but Ewen McGregor was pretty darned fine in the role of Obi Wan Kenobi in the newer batch of Star Wars films. He brought an assured warmth to the part and I was delighted when he was fashioned into an action figure in his own right.

      Hasbro launched this toy a few years back. You can tell it is one of the older figures in the range from the red carded box he comes in. The newer ones are generally white in colour. I prefer the older packaging as it is closer to the eighties Kenner boxes.

      The actual toy is a four to five inch inch plastic figure of Obi Wan. Here we find Obi Wan in his guise from 'The Phantom Menace.' His attire is smooth looking and the robes are cleanly cut and look like a Jedi's robes should do. Obi Wan favours the choice of Grandpas...beige! The tunic has some subtle pleating on it which looks pretty cool and the overall design work is good, even though his upper body does look a little bit muscular.

      The tunic hangs over beige slacks and is then offset with brown boots and a brown belt. A rather minimal costume in terms of colour, but wholly accurate which pleases me. The best part of this toy has be the face, where attention has gone into recreating McGregor's features well. A non cartoonish approach makes him look manly and hunky. The hair is superb too with the correct browny locks and the dubious dangly bit in place too on the hair. You can pose him at all the limbs too and he has been made in a robust fashion.

      Naturally, he comes with his lightsabre which you can remove from his hands. This is a satisfying entry in the series and a must for collectors, as this figure signalled the arrival of the new wave of toys. I bought mine years ago when they came out. These days, try auction sites to nab one for a couple of pounds.
