S.H. Figuarts Review | Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith)

Thomas infiltrates the Jedi Temple for a rendezvous with Obi-Wan Kenobi – the latest action figure release from Bandai’s S.H Figuarts collection…

A legendary Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi was a noble man and gifted in the ways of the Force. He trained Anakin Skywalker, served as a general in the Republic Army during the Clone Wars, and guided Luke Skywalker as a mentor.

Review:

The latest Star Wars figure from Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts collection has just been released and it’s Obi-Wan Kenobi from Revenge Of The Sith. After the disappointment of the recent Anakin Skywalker release, can this new figure put Figuarts back in the game?

I’ll start by saying it’s an improvement over Anakin but I’m not impressed. You can definitely see a resemblance to Ewan McGregor in the sculpt but there’s something off and there’s a problem with the beard. It’s not as good as their Obi-Wan sculpts from Attack Of The Clones and The Phantom Menace. It’s not bad but it’s not great. The second head is a little bit better, it’s Obi-Wan screaming. Their next figure is Count Dooku and from the looks of it, this one is going to be great!

Recently, Figuarts started to use interchangeable faces, with Obi-Wan they’re back with interchangeable heads and it’s a lot better! This figure comes with two interchangeable heads, one lightsaber hilt, one lightsaber and 10 interchangeable hands! 10, we haven’t had that many hands in a long time with Figuarts. There are a lot of improvements. I’m tempted to say they’re back on the right track, some efforts have been done. I love that they included the hand to recreate the classic Obi-Wan attack pose.

As for the figure itself, the outfit is amazing, they got it completely right and screen accurate. The figure has 19 points of articulation.

Final Thoughts

Obi-Wan is definitely a good figure and an improvement over Anakin, but there’s still work to do.
