AFJ’S TOP 10 OBI-WAN KENOBI FIGURES

Written by Robert T. Trate
The Hollywood Reporter, Variety and a slew of other news outlets are reporting that Stephen Daldry (The HoursBilly Elliot) is in talks to spearhead an Obi-Wan solo film. We here at AFJ (as of this top 10 list) are hopeful but prefer to wait for the official word from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Disney on whether it is happening or not. “Until that day and may it soon come” (Junkie points if you can name that reference), we thought we would spout out a “Top 10 Obi-Wan Kenobi Figures” list. Enjoy Junkies and may be the force be with you, always. #AFJ4LIFE

10. BOGA with Obi-Wan Kenobi – Revenge of the Sith – Hasbro
This particular creature and rider two-pack made our list for two reasons. The first is that sets like were a rarity until the Special Editions hit theaters. At that time Hasbro and Lucasfilm flooded the market with these types of toys. The second is that the Boga is the only “big creature” in Revenge of the Sith to get a toy. Every Star Wars film, to that point, had a larger than life creature. This was usually accompanied by a figure. Revenge of the Sith’s was scraped for timing and would have appeared on Mustafar. Check out the Sher Karfor more information.

9. Star Wars: The Clone Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Action Figure
This particular Obi-Wan came in at least two different packages. It was based on the likeness from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the long running series that Dave Filoni was the director of. We love it because it gives General Kenobi that warrior look we all envisioned when Alec Guinness spoke of his past in Episode IV.

8. Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi Training Gear) – Power of the Jedi
We know what you are thinking, what is this and when did it arrive on the shelves? The “training” Obi-Wan was part of the Expanded Universe figures Hasbro released in 2000. There was a need for both new figures and classic characters. This Obi-Wan, with Ewan McGregor’s likeness, is a perfect hybrid appealing to both new and old fans.

7. Star Wars Clone Wars Obi-One Kenobi – Cartoon Network – Hasbro
Oh, we have lots of love for both James Arnold Taylor, who voiced Obi-Wan, and Genndy Tartakovsky who crafted the “Micro Series” of Clone Wars so this Obi-Wan had to make our list. The sculpt is a fantastic render of what is on screen. This whole line of Clone Wars characters is by far some of the best figures Hasbro has ever produced. 

6. 1998 Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi POTF Flashback Series 
When the Power of the Force (POTF) line relaunched back in the Nineties there were numerous incarnations of the crazy old man. The 1998 Flashback Figure, to hype Episode I, was one the best of the lot. To see the worst click here (#7).

5. Sideshow Collectibles Obi-Wan Kenobi: General – Clone Wars
This Sideshow Collectible from 2008, features General Kenobi with Ewan McGregor’s likeness and in full Clone Trooper armor. Sadly, the figure has been archived but that shouldn’t stop you from looking on the secondary market. If you plan on dropping the rent money on this one, may we recommend going after the Sideshow Exclusive version. Full details here on the Sideshow site.

4. POTF 12 Inch Ob-Wan Kenobi w/ Lightsaber (1998)
This is one of many 12-inch POTF figures Hasbro released of Obi-Wan and our favorite. Certainly, he does not have the Jedi robe, so we like to consider this one the older Jedi Training Obi-Wan. Very similar to our number three choice in terms of cool accessories too.

3. Hasbro 2016 SDCC Exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi
This Obi-Wan Kenobi fans of Star Wars and the Black Series line have been waiting for! This figure comes equipped with Jedi robe, 2 lightsabers (his and Anakin’s), an electronic light-up table, and Princess Leia hologram delivering her vital message. They will undoubtedly come out with a brick and mortar store version. It’s the table and hologram Leia you want and need! the Kylo Ren (unmasked is also available), but this is the best of the two.

2. Sideshow Collectible 12 Inch Obi-Wan Kenobi
Our Fearless Leader, the Head Junkie in Charge, Jarrett Kruse, captured this image at Comic-Con 2017. Everything about this fantastic Sixth Scale Figure is TBD. Which, in most respects, just drives us into a deeper frenzy to possess this particular Obi-Wan. It… well… look at number #1 now.

1. Sideshow Collectibles – Ben Kenobi – Mythos
Again, we turn to Sideshow Collectibles and their Polystone Statue of Ben Kenobi. This fantastic portrait melds both Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor together to give us a sense of, not only what Obi-Wan looked like between Episodes III and IV but the burden he carried too. It has been sold out on Sideshow for some time (seen here). Thankfully the secondary market has them.
