"Clone Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi in Maul Mando Armor" created by Darth Daddy

So lately Dad has been trying his best to try and create as many Clone Wars characters from the remaining seasons into action figure form.  Dad says that everyone mourns loss differently, and I'm so glad that my Dad chose to cope with the loss in the way that he has.  There are so many characters that I wish made it to action figure form, and I know I'm not alone in thinking that.  Numerous collectors have echoed our sentiment calling for more Clone Wars action figures.  At home we have been hoping we'd see Hasbro release a few new action figures to commemorate the release of Clone Wars: The Lost Missions, but we aren't holding our breath.  The Clone Wars line has been dead for a few years now and although it was Hasbro's best selling Star Wars line, the chances of ever seeing a new Clone Wars action figure aren't very good.  This week a lot of Star Wars fan sites were stating that a Star Wars action figure subscription line would be a bad thing for collecting, but I can't help but think that a Clone Wars action figure subscription line might be our only chance of ever seeing this line continue in any way.  I know I'd buy more than one subscription if it ever happened.  Until then we only have a handful of customizers who can show us what could have been if the line continued.

With Hasbro always stating that Anakin and Obi-Wan action figures are their best selling figures, we could have easily seen Dad's latest action figure creation released if the Clone Wars action figure line had continued until the show had reached it's end.  Unfortunately the line was already canceled before this version of Obi-Wan ever made his debut in episodic form.  What a shame too, because I love the look of this figure.  I imagine this version of Obi-Wan Kenobi would have flown off the shelves.

The best part about this figure is that you get two characters for the price of one.  The way Dad made his figure, you get a Maul Mando and you get Obi-Wan in the Mando armor.  You can't beat that.  All Hasbro needed to do was use a slip on helmet or just include two heads.  I love that I can use the figure as two different characters. It's definitely the best part about this figure.

Dad used the Death Watch Mandalorian body from the Mini-Rig set, because he liked the ball jointed wrists.
