This week’s offerings included two new figures for Hasbro’s Black Series toy line. One of them is fantastic. The other…not so much. Let’s start with the good stuff first.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jabiim)
As I’ve said before and will say time and time again, $24.99 is way too much for these figures. That said, this version of Obi-Wan from the series’ fifth episode looks fantastic. In addition to the great portrait/sculpt, the robe lays perfectly on the figure.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jabiim) will be available from most major retailers. It will be available for preorder on Thursday at 1:00 PM EDT with an expected arrival in Spring 2023.
This figure is a Target exclusive, which is normally enough to deter purchasing thanks to their preorders getting swarmed by scalper bots. But also carries a retail price point of $27.99.
For a Jawa.
I don’t care that it’s a named Jawa (with barely any screen time) who comes with some cool accessories. I also don’t care that it’s an exclusive (which we’re all sick of anyway). $27.99 is a ridiculously insulting price for a figure that stands barely over four inches.
If you want to overpay for one, however, then Teeka will be available for preorder on Thursday at 1:00 PM EDT with an expected arrival this Fall.
