    The head sculpt looks more like the Jnix and the outer robe looks like a different material than the hot toys one I have. I like it!
    that is a Jinx sculpt head. Not a new version from hot toys. He's got a custom head for a few of his.

    ......The reason our collections are similar is because we feed off each other, help each other find things, and message quite a bit.....

    This statement is the absolute truth! My collection wouldn't be half what it is today, were it not for the kindness, knowledge, craftsmanship, & inspiration of my fellow collectors from around the world.
    I love seeing others collections, big or small, because I get inspired. & yes, sometimes I see a display setup that I fall in love with & copy. Mimicking being flattery & all.

    Indeed it was just confirmed by the owner that the head sculpt is not Hot Toys nor is the clothing and even the body parts are swapped ... so it's a one off customized OB1 ... just so everyone who would like to have the same for their display knows ... not straight from Hot Toys but an upgrade!

    It is a Jnix head. Here is what the owner said:

    "That is correct... obi wans clothing is not hot toys either... it is from a 3rd party company.. and i used a dx12 body and swapped out the forearms for ttm22 ones..."

    Thanks @Sym-Cha and @scottjua and @teecrooz !

    I see the difference in the stock head vx JNiX head hairlines now.

    There's a couple of guys on the Sideshow Freaks Forum that have swapped out the HotToys inner robes with the Hasbro ones and they look very nice.

    I think with a bit of the paint techniques that were used to paint the JNiX head, that the HotToys head might actually look more like Sir Alec. The JNiX head has his eyes too close together.

    I also think I need to save the $260+ though and just sculpt him myself.

    Well... I think as most people on this thread will agree with me that the help being offered is a little more coming from you than not... but I appreciate the sentiment and am glad to help out in any way I can

    Since the Hot Toys OB1 figure + upgrade is not within budget ... I'll have to do with a 3.75" action figure and whilest I wait for the new TLJ release of OB1 ... in the mean time I enjoy my Luke Episode VII action figure which is finally released in the TLJ line ... it took me 7 toystores to track him down

    Oh I tape it up... that's what led to the last being thrown out with the other scraps on my work table by a panicked realtor.

    Test* - Wow there's some kind of add-on Photobucket-fix for firefox/chrome that lets me see some of the posted Photobucket pictures again . . . yet not most of mine except this last one which I just uploaded again from Pb . . . alas folks I'm still not going to re-upload all the other 1560 pictures from my Photobucket library . . . at least I hope I can use some pictures again via Pb to serve this community . . . which makes a little more happy. Just let me know if this picture above of OB1's lightsaber is still not available to you after you have added the PB fix add-on to your browser

    I see nothing , but thanks for trying. It really sucks too, cause your photo collection alone I have found to be very helpful. You have museum quality stuff, my friend.

    Thanks russellsch ... well I refreshed this page and even with the add-on in place ... the picture just @#$%^&*()_+! vanished

    Edit :
    . . . and I found another solution thanks to google ... in the Pb IMG Code but with ~original added between jpg and the [IMG] by means of editing in this forum ... my pictures should now all be available again ... as it is for me

    All my pictures in this thread should be visible again, I'm not certain I'll do the same for the 1500 + posts with pictures of mine ... I hope the rpf team will resolve this for me ... meanwhile if there's any picture of mine you'd like me to fix again send me a PM with the post#link ... always willing to serve the community

    Ha! Good luck on that one! Awesome find, though. I also got to wondering if those are original. I seem to remember seeing people talk about Russ' replicas (or maybe it was Roman's) on some gun collector websites. Its not entirely unlikely that people in other hobbies could be using the replica parts to complete their builds as well.

    On at least one gun collector website I saw one of us trying to find a booster whilst appearing as a gun collector.

    A "real" gun collector said "if you can't find a real one, the ones made by the star wars nerds are very accurate".
