  just a quick question for all those with more minis than me,

      i've got the Obi-Wan weathered mini,  is it worth getting the As-first-built-by???? are they good as a pair?

It is a fun set, all of the Obis. As for my favorite, I don't think I'd vote for the AFBB or the gold, and the ROTS is just a little too plastic-y in look. So between the AOTC and the ANH? I'd have to go with my OT bias and pick the ANH. The ANH weathered really was my favorite saber of all, until I was ruined by the Luke ROTJ that is. :D

I like all of the Obi's.  Even though I'm an OT guy also, I'd have to say the AOTC is my favorite Obi-Wan mini.  But that might just be because of all the xxx I went through to get it.

  i know what you mean, i am sure that the Obi AOTC is worth the money but i have told myself that i am not going to spend more than 20 on a mini

I really think MR is going to solve the going ebay rate sooner or later. Be that a TPM Obi or a rerelease, having non-limited minis priced so high really does them no good, but rereleasing previously out of production ones are great for sales. :D

I really hope MR decides to make an Obi-Wan TPM mini instead of re-releasing the AOTC, as they did with the weathered Obi-Wan ANH and Luke ROTJ.  If they do re-release the AOTC mini, MR will not get another cent from me. 

That is until the Dooku Force FX is released. ;)

I understand the feeling Sno I got burned on the ANH weathered myself, but all the same I really like how MRs been trying to keep the mini prices down.

I like that touch too, unless you think about it too much and wonder why the crystal is so low in the hilt. :D
