Which Obi-Wan is this? Attack of the Clones or Revenge of the Sith? It's obviously not Phantom Menace, since it has the facial hair.

If Hasbro truly loved money, they would make that Stewart Stormtrooper available to all. I would buy it, and then buy it again and again and again for all of my friends.

Also, that looks to me like the Episode III Pilot Obi-Wan Figure. Probably the best version of Prequel Obi-Wan made.

Episode III (Slashing Attack) Obi-Wan from 2005. Figure # III-1, the very first basic action figure in the regular Revenge of the Sith line.

I think. Hasbro made so many Episode III Obi-Wans that look similar to one another.

That's certainly not the Slashing Attack version No way, no how.

I'm inclined to believe it's actually the Saga Legends Rerelease of the Episode III Pilot figure. The paint color seems to match better. It's certainly some version of the Pilot figure. That one has been rereleased so many times, since it's just so definitive.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

You might be dead right. I've been around these figures for so long a lot of them are just blurs anymore. Hasbro has made quite a few Episode III Obi-Wan figures in the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 lines...I've tried to keep track of the variations in my head but more often than not I have to resort to online photo galleries and references to settle the matter.

This might be him.

I just love how we're debating which version of the same god damn figure this is. Man, we're nerds.

I know.

You should see me with my friend at the toy shop. It's a wonder either one of us ever talks to women.

Liquor. Lots of compliments about shoes. Lowered expectations on her part.

Stick to those rules and you'll be a Jedi Master in no time.

I hear ya. I'd love to have a few of those just for posing in faux interview situations with actual film characters.

If you want to mind-strangle me, I'll understand."

They need to make a Rebel Soldier Colbert to go with it.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

It's most likely one of the two Saga Legends Obi-Wans we linked to. It's the closest we've been able to come to matching the appearance.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Breaking News: The new Toys 'R' Us-exclusive Speeder Bike action figure and vehicle set has been reported hitting numerous TRU stores from the West Coast to the St. Louis area, but so far nothing east of the Mississippi. Keep your eyes peeled if you're interested in this set! It'll cost $21.99, comes packed four to a case and will likely go fast.
