Star Wars Rebels Disney Store Hasbro Sneak Preview
« on: May 02, 2014, 08:21:01 AM »

It's been a whirlwind few weeks with lots of Star Wars announcements: from Disney Store exclusive toys, Episode VII cast announcements, the fate of the Expanded Universe...but what about the action figures?

Worry not, thanks to a special sneak preview event in Glendale, CA...we have a first look at the Hasbro action figure lineup for Saga Legends and Mission Series. Some of these toys were revealed at Toy Fair, but many of the figures shown here were not revealed to be part of the lineup...until now.

As you will notice on the third photo above, many images are character photo placeholders...and some appear to be repacks...but this should give fans an idea of where the Star Wars Rebels line is heading. More official news won't hit until closer to San Diego Comic Con in July, so for now these will have to do!

Looking at the figure line up I see "Rebels Obi-Wan Kenobi". So Obi-Wan is going to be in the Rebels cartoon? WTF man? C'mon.

Maybe they seek him out for help? Thought he was baby sitting Luke on Tatooine?

Having a cameo for Kenobi isn't out of the question as far as I'm concerned... almost 2 decades between ROTS and ANH - I'm sure he didn't sit around the desert for twenty years twiddling his thumbs.  There could be a story arc where there is a Tatooine setting, and he goes in "undercover" to assist someone, perhaps a fellow Jedi.  I can see that happening.

I'm holding out hope we'll see a few of these new characters in the black series too. Also, where's Hera Syndulla? Could it be she'll be a pack-in with a larger vehicle?.....

All valid points.

My opinion is that characters like Kenobi shouldn't be cheapened by appearing in stuff like Rebels. Again, only my opinion, but what's the point of hiding from the empire and protecting the son of Vader if he's just going to come out of hiding for whatever reason when he's called upon. It worked for EpIV because Leia was asking for his help, and the force brought Luke and Obi-Wan together. It was destiny.

I don't know how the story for Rebels is going to be written to fit Kenobi in it, so all this is speculation of course. It may be written very well.

I also have to remember through all this, that anything Star Wars that comes out post 1999 isn't for my generation of Star Wars fans. It's for the kids.

If this is show is about Rebel Spys?? Maybe Obiwan is just the Tatooine contact?
Easy to write him in as long as it does not mean he abandons Luke & his promise to watch over him..
After Ep3. ANY Jedi would be a contact..& needed for any & all help..

Yeah, I just don't see any good reason for Jedi who's in hiding and protecting the son of Skywalker to come out and blow his cover. Maybe it's just Kenobi done in the style of the Rebels figures?
