    I have wanted Obi Wan, and specifically Old Ben, since BF15. If this doesn't happen, then seriously shame on the Devs. The Alec Guinness version is iconic and amazing and part of the fabric of Star Wars.

    Force Ghost Obi Wan. Just sayin... could be amazing as well, if one of the skins was an apparition...

    Force Ghost Yoda too pls.
  • I'd like to see this but also using the same guy who voiced Obi-Wan in Star Wars Rebels. He did a great job and sounded almost exactly like Alec Guinness.

    I agree, about as good a voice likeness as your gonna find.

    I'd like elderly skins for Luke, Han, Leia and Obi Wan.

    Heck they even had an ST Leia appearance in the campaign DLC.

    Old Ben is absolutely necessary for this game.

    He was necessary for BF15 as well, and that never happened. I really believe there is some kind of "issue" affecting DICE/EA's ability to do an Alec Guinness skin. By ignoring him for this long, it just smacks of some kind of impediment that they do not wish to discuss. This is total speculation on my part, but they are not giving me/us any reason to believe otherwise. They aren't even saying "it's possible." And now would be the time for them to be responsive to this issue, since Obi Wan is being released imminently.
  • Other than Darth Vader and Chewbacca (whose appearances are basically consistent throughout all films), are there any hero skins from "A New Hope" in this game? If they are planning a "A New Hope" content drop at some point (in terms of skins), that would be incredible, and then I could summon patience.
  • After the reveal of weird round face Obi, the robes and toon skin... Old Ben cannot come soon enough.

    Dude, agreed, we have to push this. Or at least get a Dev to respond to it. They have ignored this issue for too long. Is an Alec Guinness Obi Wan going to happen? Is it hamstrung by legal constraints? EA/Dice: Discuss. Thanks. @F8RGE
  • Old Ben is in Galaxy of Heroes, so I really feel that there is no excuse...

    Well, at least one of the Devs made a meager comment about this.

    In an exchange on Twitter, Guillaume Mroz indicated as follows:

    @PessPatriot
    Awesome, any chance for an “old” Obi Wan skin?!

    @guillaume_mroz
    Replying to @PessPatriot
    I'd like to of course :) It brings up some questions that need answers though.


    It's the same ambiguous rhetoric. Frankly, there are more questions from the fanbase than can be reasonably attributed to the developers at this juncture. I do not share in, nor empathize, with "their questions" about it, whatever they may be. They have the inside knowledge, the issues, inhibitions, or whatever is preventing them as the license holder for the intellectual property.

    I wish they would be more transparent about what they are dealing with.

    You made a likeness of Old Ben in your EA branded game Galaxy of Heroes, so do it here.

  • It could be that the reason we don't have this skin are legal. We don't know what the estate of the late Alec Guiness may have said. After all, regardless of the actual character, it is his likeness that would be needed.

    I doubt that'd be an issue for EA/DICE/Disney, and Alec Guiness's likeness has appeared in many other Star Wars media, including The Force Unleashed and Star Wars Rebels.

    I’ll just keep quoting this from another thread as this ‘reason’ keeps popping up from time to time.

    Do you have a link to any of this? I keep seeing it said here. But never heard of this before Dice used it as an excuse. But I have read Lucasfilm retained all rights to character likenesses, which Disney now owns. Alec and his estate benefited from licensing and merch sales and still does. His likeness has shown up in many toys, games and the Rebels cartoon. I have multiple tables top games using his likeness as well. If Fantasy flight games can use it, so can Dice.

  • I kind of don't want an Old Ben skin because then that means I would have to start playing Obi Wan again.

    Just kidding. An Old Ben skin would make sucking as Obi WELL worth the inevitable suffering.

  • Best thing? Thats a bit of a stretch
    Emotion yet Peace, Ignorance yet Knowledge, Passion yet Serenity, Chaos yet Harmony, Death yet the Force
  • There are so many many many skins that need to be added. It's crazy that so many ICONIC appearances, especially the ones that were already in SWBF15, were left out.

    The base luke skin isn't even from the OT, it's from campaign, another treasure trove of unused assets. I love the clone wars and I hate to be that gal but they really need to get everything from campaign and the last game in before they commit to all this new prequel content.

    Devlin, please point out to me where it is Factually without a doubt stated that “they cannot use the old Kenobi skin from Rebels”? Because that’s the way it CAN be achieved. :wink: Forget about the “Estate won’t allow it rumor”. They can’t overule alternative variations/story/canon use of the character/skin itself. Especially with a different Voice attached to a skin/look never used by Him in person while acting. :wink:
