Obi-Wan Kenobi, as depicted by Alec Guinness will finally see a release in all his plastic glory. Since they want to make this a special release he also comes with small table with a light up feature for a small hologram figure of Princess Leia, and two lightsabers one his and the Anakin lightsaber which he passed on to Luke. If you don’t get this exclusive guys don’t worry as I’m sure he’ll see a general line release with fewer bonuses. You can get it at the Hasbro booth for $44.99 July 21 – 24.
But that’s not the only exclusive they announced. At Star Wars Celebration happening in London July 15 -17th we will see another exclusive of an unmasked Kylo Ren as depicted by Adam Driver.
The figure will come with a burned Darth Vader helmet and separate Kylo helmet. I’m guessing the helmet won’t be able to go over the unmasked head sculpt but hat all remains to be seen as Hasbro says that more details will be released on their Instagram account Hasbropulse. He will also come will a cloth banner of the First Order insignia as well. The figure will retail for 34.99.
So as my wallet crys out in pain I have to admit these are two very cool exclusives. While both are going to be hard to acquire I expect they will see regular line releases at some point just with out all the extra items. Can’t wait to see what else is coming this year.
