September-Wan Kenobi

While I’m under no illusion that the LEGO Star Wars magazine is nothing more than a glorified marketing tool, the September issue really goes overboard. It’s full to the brim with adverts for the new collectible cards and of course prominently features a free sample pack to get people hooked and a special card you can only get with the magazine. I don’t really care for this stuff, but good for them, I suppose?

The Obi-Wan Kenobi minifigure represents him in the version from the Revenge of the Sith movie’s opening sequence or alternatively as seen in Attack of the Clones. Unfortunately it has the headset printed on, which limits the value when using it standalone in other contexts. It’s also inconsistent with how he is depicted on the special collector’s card, so ultimately perhaps not that useful one way or the other.

Overall an okay-ish issue for the amount of stuff you get, but I think I’m going to get more out of the next one, when there’s at least some bricks, this time for building a Droidika, with Dark Brown parts, no less.
