Obi-Wan Kenobi is pretty weak. His articulation is minimal with a limited ball-jointed neck, ball shoulders, angled cut joints at the elbows, cut wrists, waist, and hinged hips. I know Sir Alec wasn’t exactly leaping around like a ninja, but c’mon! Speaking of Alec Guiness, Hasbro still hasn’t nailed a likeness with this figure, although I do appreciate the subtle paint wash in his grey hair. His softgoods cloak is a durable fabric, but a poor fit, looking way oversized. Other than the cloak, his only accessory is a lightsaber. At least the cloth skirt allows you to seat him in your Landspeeder. “These are not the droids you’re looking for.” Heh.
