Sideshow Collectibles Premium Format Obi-Wan Kenobi with Exclusive Remote.
Limited to 1,250 pieces.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was once a noble Jedi Knight in the days of the Old Republic, before the Jedi Order was extinguished and before the tyrannical Empire ruled the galaxy. After the fall of the Jedi, Obi-Wan retreated to the isolated Jundland Wastes on the desert planet Tatooine. Many locals dismissed the old hermit as a crazy wizard and never suspected that he was a once-great warrior and former general of the Republic. In actuality, Kenobi was silently observing from afar the young farm boy Luke Skywalker, whose future was unknowingly linked to the survival of the Jedi and the Rebellion. When Obi-Wan saves Luke from a band of Tusken Raiders, he begins to mentor young Skywalker in the ways of the Force, and together with starship Captain Han Solo, his copilot Chewbacca, and the two droids R2-D2 and C-3PO, they set out to rescue the Rebel leader Princess Leia from the Empire's dreaded Death Star. While aboard the Imperial stronghold, Obi- Wan faces his old apprentice Darth Vader, now a Dark Lord of the Sith. A noble example of conviction and self-sacrifice Obi-Wan allows himself to fall at the hands of Vader so that Luke can escape to the Rebellion and ensure the viability of its future.

The Premium Format 1/4 Scale Obi-Wan Kenobi figure captures old Ben Kenobi as he faces Darth Vader in the long Death Star corridor. The figure is constructed of hand-cast polystone, hand painted to exacting standards, and dressed in the full costume accurately reproduced in 1/4 scale. The lightsaber features an electronic light-up function, powered by your choice of batteries or via an included power cord.

The Sideshow Exclusive Version of the Premium Format 1/4 Scale Obi-Wan Kenobi Figure includes a 1/4 scale replica of the training remote that Obi-Wan uses to train the young Luke Skywalker aboard the Millennium Falcon. The training remote is hand casted, hand painted, and includes its own unique display base.
