I can’t believe it’s taken this long…
I’m going to start this out the same way I always do. I know I might sound like a broken record, but I don’t care. THANK YOU! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I still get super nervous whenever we do one of these books, and once again, I am humbled by not just the support, but the things I see you all do for one another. It is a true honor to be associated with such a kind and thoughtful group of people.
So we’ve been doing these action figures for a bit, and it shocks me some of the epic characters we have yet to do. We have a onesie wearing Ithorian, a green ribbed Rodian, a bunch of bounty hunters, but only one OBI-WAN KENOBI!
There are so many versions of Old Ben, so I just had to take a stab (no pun intended) at on of my favorites. I was really considering going with the General Kenobi version, because I desperately want to work on characters from the cartoons. But man, I absolutely LOVE the Revenge of the Sith version of him. This is the version of him I always dreamed about as a kid. The Obi-Wan that fought Anakin, hid Luke, and exiled himself on Tatooine. When I played with the original toy, I always wondered what he looked like during that time, and I made up my own scenarios about how it all went down (and for the record I always had Anakin [who just happened to already be wearing his Vader suit] fall in acid [aka soapy water]).
Well thanks to ROTS, all those questions got answered. It’s by far my favorite movie from the Prequels, and Ewan McGregor’s portrayal was so awesome! So with all that said, it’s time to announce…
– JTC EXCLUSIVE full-color OBI-WAN KENOBI Action Figure Variant for Age of Republic: Count Dooku #01, exclusively at johntylerchristopher.com
He will be available for Pre-sale on February 28th.
Like before, we are offering graded books of 9.6 or better from both CGC & CBCS. You get to choose between two exceptional grading services.
The book will be limited to 3,000.
So with that out of the way, here’s the slim.
More powerful than you can possibly imagine…
Of all the characters to have new life brought into them since the original trilogy, I think Obi-Wan has been given some of the most interesting stories. I mentioned before, what a fan I am of the cartoons, and they just crushed it with him! From his relationship with Anakin, the rest of the Jedi, and especially Satine. I LOVE how they play his feelings for her, juxtaposed with Anakin and Padme. It’s the type of story I want to see explored more within Star Wars. I also really enjoyed how he dealt with Darth Maul, after he came back. Say all you want about whether he SHOULD have come back, they way the team handled Kenobi’s reactions was top notch, and the way they finished it off on Rebels was so sweet!
