Here we find Obi Wan Kenobi in his usual attire, ready to do battle with Darth Maul. This is Obi Wan at his 'Phantom Menace' stage, so the toy has been modelled on Ewen McGregor, as opposed to Sir Alec Guinness. The figure was released in the late nineties and can still be bought boxed, if you search online, or loose for a pound or so.
The packaging is the red colour scheme, seen on the earlier batch of the figures produced by Hasbro. Kenboi is about four to five inches in height which puts him in line with other figures. You can twist the head, arms and legs and pose the figure at will. This enhances the play value of course and it is reassuring to know that the toy has been well made with nice stiff joints, so they will not snap or wobble with repeated use.
The attention to detail on the costume is impressive with a strong colour match for the robes. Obi Wan's beige robes have generous sized pleats and there is plenty of life in the cloth which makes him look alert. Particularly pleasing are the brown boots which glisten with warmth and have a good depth of colour to them.
The face is pretty good, though does not look quite like McGregor. It could really be any generic looking hero. The hair is tied neatly behind him though and the skin tone is good. Obi Wan comes with a blue lightsabre which is streamlined and quite fragile. If you bend it too much then it could snap, so be careful.
Overall, a solid enough toy and very easy to get hold of, so expect to pay no more than a few pounds. As there are other Obi Wans on the market, this one could be worth getting because he comes with a freeze frame which adds to the value of the package.
