Obi-Wan to appear in Rebels?

RebelsObiWanFigureAs spotted by Jedi News, it seems a rather significant figure will appear in Rebels: Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi. This comes from the Disney Store Hasbro preview—in other words, expect a 3.75″ Rebels Obi-Wan action figure soon.

There is an interesting point lurking here: this figure comes from the “fall 2014” wave of the Saga Legends line, suggesting that Obi-Wan will feature in the first season of Rebels. How? Isn’t the show meant to initially take place on Lothal as a kind of microcosm of the larger rebel movement? Or does it also give us the bigger picture by giving glimpses into the actions of key figures in the “rebellion against the Empire”?

This raises all sorts of storytelling possibilities. In about four months, things will start to become a lot clearer.
