SH Figuarts - Obi-Wan Kenobi, A New Hope (sneak peak image)

The first look at an SH Figuart's Obi-Wan Kenobi from A New Hope was back in 2016 at a Japanese trade show. The release now takes one step closer with this image released by Tamashii Nations - a teaser of kinds.

It would make sense for Obi-Wan to make an appearance in the first half of 2018, particularly to line up in that iconic battle with the April release of A New Hope Darth Vader.

The early trade show images did look very impressive - this shot less so in terms of the Alec Guinness head sculpt. And while I am not always a fan of soft goods, I do see there benefits on figures like this when you see what the plastic has to look like to represent a big baggie robe and retain articulation.
