Obi-Wan of the prequels is one of my favorite characters in the Star Wars universe. Finding his Black Series 6" action figure at a Walgreens a few years back was a fun surprise. I'm a big fan of these figures and enjoy showing them off so here are a few pics I took this morning of Obi-Wan and Commander Cody. Obi-Wan's character in the prequels was fun with a good sense of humor. Attaining the ranks of Jedi Master he may have error-ed in taking on the training of Anakin Skywalker but we all make mistakes, right? And then he of course didn't finish off Anakin when had the chance ("It's over Anakin. I have the high ground."). He might have also lied to Luke about his father but I don't let all these facts ruin my fandom.
The figure itself is nice and was part of the blue wave that came out in 2014 and 2015. There are some highlights to his hair on either side that I'm not quite sure about but I still like the detail.
Commander Cody was a Clone Commander assigned to work with Obi-Wan during the Clone Wars. He had a pretty big part in the Clones Wars TV Series and a fan favorite. I was also one of those who liked his character. Unfortunately their pairing came to an end when Order 66 was issued and Commander Cody ordered Obi-Wan be killed. While Obi-Wan survived it's a big hit to Cody's legacy obviously. Of course this was part of all of the Clone's indoctrination but still a few, very few, were able to ignore Order 66 and left for other adventures. This is a pretty cool figure and nice addition to the collection.
