The Alec Guinness celebrity doll depicts him as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars original trilogy. The action figure was made by Hasbro in 1996 as part of the Star Wars Collector Series. Alec Guinness is an English actor who was known for his stage work as well as movie blockbusters. He died in August, 2000.
From the box:
A great master of the Force and a general in the Old Republic, Obi-Wan Kenobi became one of the last surviving Jedi Knights after Emperor Palpatine assumed control of the galaxy with his merciless New Order.
As the Emperor’s power grew, Obi-Wan Kenobi changed his name to Ben Kenobi and went into hiding on the planet of Tatooine, where he could protect the best possible hope for the future of the Republic: a young child named Luke Skywalker. The boy’s father, Anakin Skywalker, had been Kenobi’s star pupil in the ways of the Force, but became corrupted by the dark side.
Kenobi eventually trained young Luke in the ways of the Force, and together they embarked on a spectacular adventure. Darth Vader would later destroy his former teacher in a lightsaber duel, but Kenobi’s life force lived on, continuing to guide Luke in the ways of the Force.
Authentically styled straight from the movie, Obi-Wan Kenobi is armed with his signature lightsaber and comes outfitted in his hooded robe, shirt, pants, inner robe, and boots. This special edition 12″ figure, available for the first time ever, is destined to become a classic collectible.
MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
The Guinness doll comes wearing the complete Obi-Wan Kenobi costume. The outfit includes a floor length brown hooded cape, an off white linen under robe complete with a matching Velcro closure belt, a tacked linen shawl with a snap at the waist, soft plastic silver bucked self-closing plastic utility belt, a long sleeve brown knit shirt that Velcros up the back, robe matching brown tight pants with a Velcro fly and snap that go down over the calves, black knee high rubber boots, and a blue light saber. Everything can comes off and easily go back on except perhaps tucking the bottom of the pants back into the boots.
The action figure’s arms, elbows, knees, hips, and shoulders are articulated. The neck only moves side to side and the well defined torso, and wrists are rigid. The ankles are fixed but the feet are made of a softer plastic to enable the removable of the boots.
The Celebrity Doll Museum has many 12 inch Star Wars action figures in the collection.
