To commemorate a major milestone, Hasbro created The Black Series 40th Anniversary collection. The line, which was revealed in their showroom at the 2017 International Toy Fair, the 40th Anniversary collection features 6-inch action figures based on the ones originally released by Kenner in 1978. The first wave in this special set began hitting shelves at the end of March, 2017 and included Han Solo, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi, and Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2).
Following The Black Series 2016 San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi and mass release 32 Obi-Wan Kenobi that came out a few months later, this Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi action figure is more or less a straight repack. It can be identified by the white stamp under its left foot.
