I have to admit I am disapointed with how the new Obi-Wan turned out. The face that came with last year's podracer was perfect but the new one looks kind of squished. He also should have had a better hairpiece than the classic male hair.
I'm not quite sold to this Obi-Wan version too. Yeah it's supposed to look young but it turned out ' too young-looking' IMO. Though I also think the one in the Podracer set does not look like young Obi (cocky smirk you wouldn't see much from jedi). The use of the classic hair is quite understandable, though I'm still hoping we'd get a hairpiece to represent that type of short hairstyle in the near future (useful for other minifigs too - Hawkeye comes at the top of my mind).

Just hoping Lego will reuse the queen Amidala mold (it must be an expensive one!) in a more relevant set in the near future, maybe a palace scene?
Nothing's impossible, though it might take a while
(another dozen years perhaps?
) before we see this Queen Amiadala fig in another set. TLG would definitely maximize this fig to sell this set, and even if this fig find its way in the aftermarket (eBay, BL) it still would've served it purpose since those sellers would've still bought the set in order to sell this fig.

Palpatine's Arrest was on the TRU survey for special 10th anniversary of LEGO Star Wars, the other choices being Home One (which won) and a Slave I with Cloud City landing platform. You may be thinking of a survey on Lego.com quite a while ago, maybe for the 30th anniversary of Star Wars (although I'm iffy on that), which asked about which sets people would like to see remade. I remember both the Gungan Sub and Sith Infiltrator on that survey.
Yeah you're probably right about that, as I vaguely remember the survey details from the past years. Looking back how the 'other choices' in those surveys have already made their way as actual sets it's really good to know that TLG is listening to fan requests.
