In this episode, Lindsay and David bring us a figure from a galaxy far, far away… S.H.Figuarts Ben Kenobi! Unlike his previous entry in the S.H.Figuarts lineup, this version of Obi-Wan is based on his appearance in “Star Wars: A New Hope,” and even comes with parts to recreate the scene just before he was struck down by Darth Vader. Be sure to check out our close-up, as well as the end of the video where you can find out how to enter and win Ben for yourself!
In this episode:
– S.H.Figuarts Ben Kenobi
– S.H.Figuarts Chewbacca (SOLO)
– S.H.Figuarts Han Solo
– S.H.Figuarts Mimban Stormtrooper
– Nendoroid Genji: Classic Skin Edition (Overwatch)
“Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.”
For my generation, this is the Kenobi we know and the movie we saw in the theaters was just known as Star Wars – although Lucas indicated that it was the fourth film chronologically in his planned saga, it would be still be many years before the original would officially be retconned as “Episode IV” or “A New Hope”.
Is it me, or David was super excited about being able to put Kenobi’s body parts over his robe? Hilarious! xD
My favorite Jedi. He’d go great with my other figures from the original trilogy
Well… technically Ben did not die when fighting Vader, he just became one with the force and just left all his clothes behind, including his old man pants that he wore on a desert planet, good thing Vader has no sense of smell left.
Ill just let that sink in and i dare you to read out this comment during the show hehe
Haha, that Ben Kenobi robe with the hand is pretty gross in a weirdly funny sort of way…. If I get this I’ll have to put him in that pose! 😀
Let’s see if this Jedi mind trick will work…. “This is the post you’re looking for! This is the winner of the competition”
Looks great. The large robe in my opinion camouflages the joints a little bit, making the figure look much less awkward than other posable figures.
Looking forward for Jedi ghost Ben.
So how do I win!! 😁
As a fan of Ewan McGregor, I was really pleased to see him bring back a childhood favourite of mine in the prequels.
I have this SH Figuarts Ben Kenobi … along with all the other SH Figuarts Star Wars releases from June 2018 . I am also looking forward to the upcoming release of SH Figuarts Anakin Skywalker ( EPISODE III ) .
The face sculpt is amazing !
Wow.. Looks lively figures.. its very similar to the original character..
You either become with the Force, or live long enough to drink green milk, I suppose.

Who would have guessed that Old Ben Kenobi was Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Great review, great figure!
“This is the winner comment you’re looking for” *waves hand in front of your faces*
Old Ben didn’t die. Well, from a certain point of view, that is
May the force be with me!
I love obi wan and it was sad for him too go and I used act as him and play with my brothers
Pick me hobbylink.tv. You’re my only hope
The realism 0.0
a little bit of a brick but that face looks so good
Man the figure is spot on
i want one please give one.
hopin for that obi wan origin movie
SHF Obi-wan always look great.
My first ever Star Wars Figuarts figure was R2-D2, which was vastly superior to any other version I’d ever seen… And ever since, I’ve been long considering picking up more of them. If I could win ol’ Ben Kenobi here, maybe that’ll get the ball rolling!
Amazing likeness to the real Obi Wan Kenobi
Man, I feel ashamed, it took me a few minutes to realize who Ben was
Wow, this ooks realy nice!
Pick me, Pick me!
Cool figure! 😀
I am commenting here. Good episode!
Obi-wan’s the best old guy 🙂
May the force be withe me
Fingers crossed! Great review, by the way. Definitely subscribing to keep up with y’all, going forward.
I feel the force (again) stronger within’ me.

I’d love to win this Ben Kenobi. Looks like a great figure!!
Why is the name written as Ben Kenobi and not as Obi Wan Kenobi?
Crazy old Wizard!
I’m in the club of who like the 1-2-3 movies too. In their own way, they are nice.
i laughed at the single hand on the empty cloak. missing hands are very much a Starwars thing. i hope i wont loose any pieces!
I wasn’t expecting David to throw the hand on there, had me laughing, too! (Sorry, Obi-Wan…)
Ben Kenobi should have shown more light saber skills like what master yoda did on the episode 1 and 3.
There is no such thing as a luck!
Who is the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?
I’d love to have this figure. For me, it’s the definitive version of the character. Almost every line he says in the original movie is a part of popular culture.
Ahh Alec Guiness. Such a wonderful actor.
figure sculpting has come a long way! The resemblance is uncanny! Great video by the way! How long does it take you to do one of these vids David and who did the intro?
Would it be possible to Jedi mind trick the random number generator? Either way, nice figure! I saw it the other day at Yodobashi Camera and I’ve been debating picking it up. I’m afraid to start collecting the Star Wars Sh figuarts. It would lead me down a path.. a dark path.. or a broke path!
Help me Hobbylink Japan, you’re my only hope…in getting this figure 🙂
Is my name orange?
Yep, looks good!
I need Obi Wan’s help to ward off the dark side dwelling in my house,
I would love to add this to my Bandai Model kits with the release of Han and Luke in their Stormtrooper Disguises, I feel it would compliment them very well.
I like how the Obi wan is really detailed.
I hope the Obi wan movie will be good.
Nice Obi wan figure!
One of my favourite star war characters
Great episode, thank you. May the force be with you~ ^_^
Good looking figure. Just as a fun fact, Alec Guinness (actor for Obi Wan) hated Star Wars, but he still signed on for those royalties. He made more than $50 million because of that deal. So remember to always sign for those royalties instead of just getting a sum of money.
The cape looks very nice. I love it !!
You have become the very thing you swore to destroy!
You can only win this, from a certain point of view.
Another awesome review of Figuarts Ben Kenobi.
Let the force, be with me!! ✌😀
That Obi wan is insanely realistic. Awesome!!!
Old Ben is awesome!

I have to agree with David, they really nailed the look of Obi-one.

At the Hoth: Ben…….Beeeeen! Then Luke collapse
That cape accessory recreating his death is a very nice touch
Oh, Hobbylink. Please help me.
I live two very different lives. But both rely on one very measly budget..
Most of my days I just glide through.
I put in, about as much effort as is expected of me. And I contribute to, about as much as is required from me.
I really don’t look much. And I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t bother to either.
I don’t really think much. And I probably think even less about the fact.
But when I do think about it there is only one thought that can pull me out from within those depths;
Someone has glided all the way through until the end.. And they totally rocked it, all the way through.
My second identity; The world’s #1 Alec Guinness fan.
You see, Ben Kenobi (Formerly known as, Obi-Wan. Do you see where this is going, already?) will not be remembered so much for his own achievements. But instead, by the achievements of the many strong & talented young boys he has recruited over the years. It is a simple yet genuis game which he plays.
1. Use the force to sense out, the force, from within a potential, “The Chosen one”.
2. Use force on the young prodigy to draw out inner, “The Chosen one” like qualities.
3. Inadvertently create the centrifugal force of evil from said, “The Chosen one” Then release it upon the galaxy. This will both further a need for more chosen one’s & also reset the need to further care for the current, chosen one.. All while you can sit back and chill for a good minute.
4. Find, “The Chosen one”. All over again.
We as humans are given many great gifts. Many of which we never care to let flourish. We also tend to be our greatest enemies. Being a Jedi would be awesome. And I’d like to think that I’d be awesome because of it. But no, I’d probably squander that too. I’d proabably be the, “Ben” Kenobi of Jedi, and Just let everyone do stuff around me. While I grow a beard and talk about how things should be. The trick to getting all of the credit, all of the time, is to just stay alive long enough to grow a damn beard.
Unfortunately I have to decide between paying for nourishment/utilities, and commemorating my great idol.
Please Hobbylink, Help me finish my shrine.
finally a figure that I really like!!!!
You guys did such a good job reviewing this figure that watching this is akin to virtually owning it. Now I do not need to buy it thanks to you and can re-watch the episode and enjoy it cost free, with the added bonus of no dusting.
Awesome figure! Would love to have it!
The force is strong in this figure.. Most Impressive!
Amazing face sculpt, and it wood look even better with a cloth robe.
