OBI-WAN KENOBI Star Wars Revenge of the Sith
Even though the action figure itself is a straight up repack of the 2006 The Saga Collection Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Vintage Collection wave two figure is worth owning just for the card back itself. This assortment marks the first time a character (or more correctly in some cases, a character's costume) from outside the Original Trilogy was packaged on a black and silver Classic Kenner card.

The second wave of The Vintage Collection was revealed at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con. With the exception of a single Star Wars (A New Hope) figure that we've always wanted on a Kenner card, this assortment mainly focused on the characters from Revenge Of The Sith, marking the first time anything other than the Original Trilogy was represented on a Kenner Vintage card. The Assortment included Darth Sidious in his brown robes, Darth Vader as he appeared on Mustafar, Sandtrooper with a white Sergeant pauldron, the clean Phase II Clone Trooper, repacked Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous with soft goods cloak, the definitive Magnaguard and the repainted Clone Commander Cody. Wave two began shipping in September 2010.

All eight figures in this wave was available on both regular and foil cards.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
