Accessories: The Jedi, with more than 30 points of articulation, gets an ignited translucent blue light saber, light-saber hilt, cloth cape and tunic, rubbery undersuit, Clone Trooper armor, four extra hands with various poses and a sturdy display stand.
The packaging is also a highlight with its wraparound cover sealed with a magnetic grip and various animated scenes from the Clone Wars on its back.
Read all about it: I would try either the quarterly graphic novella “Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Volume 1: Shipyards of Doom” ($7.95 each) for a compact taste of the man and his fellow Jedi in action or the monthly Star Wars: The Clone Wars series ($2.99 each), both from Dark Horse Comics.
What’s it worth: Trevor Grove’s spectacular sculpt takes its cue from of the actor who played young Obi-Wan in the movies, Ewan McGregor. It is distinguished by incredible eye detail; a focused, calm facial expression; raised eyebrow; and moles.
My only beef is with the loose knee joints, but this beauty is for admiring and not taking into an action-figure war. So set him up in a case and just appreciate one of Sideshow’s best figures to date.
