Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader are two of the most iconic names in the Star Wars galaxy, but before they debuted on screen, the concept art for these characters was a bit different. Hasbro is celebrating the duo with new figures in the Black Series that feature their earliest versions as imagined by Ralph McQuarrie.
