    That new picture is not old news. Just went up yesterday on SSC. I'm waiting for the "full reveal" but looking forward to this actually.

    Padawan Obi is new, very cool, thanks! Where's the sandtrooper link?
    pukingdog: What I like about your build threads, is that they start out like chaotic car wreck footage, which morphs into great figures. Your style is fearless.

    Probably the lighting, but Padawan Obi-Wan looks like a 40-something version of John Lydon.........

    Obi Wan looks awesome, the Snowtrooper is kinda meh... I hate the molded plastic face mask.

    Snowtrooper looks like ..... Too bad, I was really looking forward to this one. Here's hoping the new Darth Vader doesn't look this bad.

    Re: Sideshow Collectibles Padawan Obi Wan and Snowtrooper

    I don't know who in the world is taking pics for Sideshow, but Commando Snake Eyes, Boba Fett, Snowtrooper, and Padawan Obi Wan have not been that impressive. This picture of Obi Wan looks like there is something wrong with his jaw, almost like it's too thin. Oddly, the ROTJ Kenobi looked a lot like Mcgregor. I'm puzzled as to why it took this long for a Padawan Kenobi in the first place, and then to get this underwhelming representation. And as stated earlier, the clothes look thick, as they were on all of the previous Jedis that Sideshow has done, not that bad if you keep the cloaks on though.

    clearly , with a little work on the jedi's clothes in my figures they look great, but the one taking the pics. for SSC is really messing this up..... I mean, DML make their figures look twice better in the pics than reality, but SSC............

    I rec'd a 21 day processing notice for Obi-Wan. Looks like he will be shipping at the end of this month.

    In the meantime, here are some higher res prototype photos to tide over:

    It looks good, but, how much is rehashed from their older Ewan Obi Wan!?

    The robes and belt look like they could be, mind you, they were really nice anyway.

    CHEERS!

    Re: Sideshow Collectibles Padawan Obi Wan and Snowtrooper

    Could be, but it seems like it could be on a different body, based on the appearance of the neck.

    I dunno, SSC promo photos aren't that great IMO--they tend to have harsh lighting and top-down shadows which aren't always flattering.

    The original trilogy figures are the best. I hope they do an AT-AT driver, Tie Fighter pilot, and a Biker Scout Trooper as well! Please no more CLONE TROOPERS!!!!

    I dunno why, but I'm kind of excited for this one. I guess I'm just a sucker for Clone Wars stuff.

    Well, some Jedi's are welcomed, SST stopped making them 2 years ago......, some Jedi Council ones, with light up Lightsaber would be welcomed.....perhaps a new Darth Maul, with grinning sculpt, a Dooku, or a new Anakin, with better sculpt............
