Kenobi seems to be on high alert regarding your battery. Will he answer the call to action and recharge it using the Force? Find out next week. Same Ben-time, same Ben-channel.
No way. That battery life is always low. No way around it. I’m on 14% right now hahaha

Yup and if you zoom in, they were priced at $35. I found Omega at a comic store by me but had to pass because she was $40!!

From what I've seen and been told, it's actually not too uncommon with comic stores because usually they're buying a case at the same price we would be and they don't really get a discount, so they have to upcharge to turn a profit. They aren't discounted for them because they aren't buying the same bulk number of cases a Walmart or Target does.

Not in the slightest! I have her on preorder for regular price though. I like the character, but I don't need her in THAT much of a hurry! But I have noticed comic and collectible shops tend to get stuff in a little quicker.

Found at Walmart tonight..haven't opened yet but likeness is very good.
So good in fact that I'm considering putting this head on the dreadful Ep 3 Obi-Wan.

Anxious to see if it's an easy swap.

Got him today via my son who found him at our local Target.

Have to say, the likeness is much better than I was expecting. Was worried after getting the Chuck-Norris-like TVC fig.
Looking forward to other TBS Kenobis that have been announced!

I got mine the day before yesterday. I really like it. It had some QC issues. Hair wasn't on properly, left knee couldn't budge, and the saber hole on the belt was solid. But i went ahead and did a little work and now i absolutely love the figure. I'll post some pics in a few. Also, isn't the robe supposed to have a split on the back, like a duster?

^ What did you do?
I took the hair off, repainted it, glued it back into the proper alignment. Took acetone and removed the original eyebrows and parts of the beard. Have the face a full repaint and tweaked existing eyes. Removed “glove” lines from the hands. Boiled and loosened stuck knee and drilled out saber peg hole.

Great job man! I’ve now seen a couple of repaints of that OB1 head and it def looks a lot more like Ewan with a repaint. I’ll probably do the same when I get the blue shirt version

Thanks for that. Yeah,

when my blue version comes in I’ll be doing it to him as well. I thought I only wanted the blue version but when I saw this one in the store I couldn’t wait.

I didn't realize til seeing your corrected version, but the hair's a bit wonky on mine as well.
How did you remove the hair (boiling water)? Thanks
