New Obi-Wan Kenobi action figure shows how much life sucks for the Jedi now

A new Obi-Wan Kenobi action figure based on the character’s appearance in his upcoming show has been revealed by Hasbro. Dubbed the ‘Wandering Jedi’, this is an addition to the hyper-detailed Black Series Star Wars action figures range.

Much like the new Darth Vader helmet and Obi-Wan lightsaber replicas, this Obi-Wan Kenobi figure (available directly from Hasbro (opens in new tab) or via Zavvi US (opens in new tab) / Zavvi UK (opens in new tab)) portrays the character as seen during that series. In other words, he’s a little rougher around the edges than the Jedi we saw in Revenge of the Sith; although he still has his iconic robes, removing them reveals a more cobbled-together outfit. 

There also seems to be a holster sitting on his hip. While the blaster itself can’t be seen, the product description says that it features three accessories. One of these is obviously the lightsaber that’s seen in promo pictures, so the other must be the gun that can be glimpsed in trailers for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney Plus

It’s worth noting that this Obi-Wan Kenobi action figure is slightly cheaper if you pre-order it straight from Hasbro (opens in new tab); it’s got a $24.99 price tag there and has been given a January 1 2023 shipping date. Meanwhile, Zavvi’s listing notes that it’ll become available as of February 28 2023 with a slightly more expensive price of $33.99 in the USA (opens in new tab) and £25.99 in the UK (opens in new tab). As such, shopping via Hasbro gets you the Wandering Jedi earlier and for less.
