    Today I went to the local Warehouse in Invercargill and found they had some new POTJ figures i had a look through found no errors that i know about so i picked one i liked which happenes to be the Ben (Obi WAn)Kenobi Jedi Knight figure I brought itand went back to the local games shop (my favourite hang out) Opened it up craft knife down the side as not to damage the packaging got it out and to my shock i found that the extened light saber was an episode one obi wan light saber but the handle was the right one i am wondering if this is an error or just hasbro stuffing up again also if any one has a spare on card Darth Vader Dagohbah Could u please send me a email and i will buy it at cost also this is really cool all the new zealanders getting together invercargill gets hardly anything and it would be handy if u see some thing i need and i will buy it at cost thanks

    Hmmm I had never noticed that before. I don't think it was error but I'll do some research on that. I know the handle attached to his belt is Lukes.

    As far as I could find the lightsabre is correct, why they used Obi wan's from episode 1 i'm not sure. But the lightsabre handle is Anakin's, the one Obi wan gives to Luke in ANH.

    Go here to the ecipher web site for a pic of an old school obi wan light saber it looks the sme as the one on the figures belt
    obi wans saber

    the one on his belt also looks similar but is not the one he gave to luke e.g.anikans lightsaber i also found a good pic of that
    anikens lightsaber

    the extended saber i got had a epioside one obi wan hilt the one with the ball with the spiky things at the end of it it is not an epiode 4 obi wan light saber hilt on the extend saber

    so yeah i can see your confuse ment

    OK I had a look at the pic, unfortunately I believe that is actually Anakin's old lightsabre (the one he gave luke and also the one attached to his belt on the action figure) You'll find the lightsabre Obi wan used on ANH is more like Luke's in ROTJ. If you have a look at the POTF Obi wan action figure Lightsabres you'll see what I mean. :)

    That Lightsaber has been the focus of a few questions. if you have the Visual Dictionaries from DK books, youll find some better reference photos. I had a look at mine, and the saber is similar to the E1 saber, except the 'spiky ball' is silver on ben's ANH saber, whereas on the E1 saber it's black.

    No worries dude, we are all here to help out. Yeah Obi wan's Lightsabre (POTJ AF) is similar to the Episode 1 lightsabre.
