Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 019 by TrevorGrove Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 019 by TrevorGrove
Part of the Star Wars Mythos line of statues from Sideshow Collectibles [link]

This 1:5 scale statue was sculpted nearly two nears ago, now. Designed by Joe Allard and Tom Gilliland, this piece is meant to represent Obi-Wan in the years before "A New Hope", but after "Revenge of the Sith". This gave us an opportunity to imagine the life of Kenobi as he became the reclusive, mystical figure of Tatooine.

It also allowed us to have fun imagining both Ewan McGregor and Alec Guinness as the character, but at different ages than we have seen them in the films.

The statue was sculpted in castiline and wax, with a sculpey base. Some of the lightsabers were sculpted by hand, and Tusken Raider weapons were output from digial models (which is why they look clear).

Many more photos can be found in my gallery

All this talk of spinoff movies made me think of this amazing sculpt, I think Ewan returning to play a windswept desert denizen in an Obi Wan movie would be epic!

Beautiful worthy of its own movie. No, not the concept of a bridging series movie- your statue-that deserves a miniseries!

Hahaha! I wish I could think of myself like that....Instead I just feel like a failure most days. :D Parents, don't let your kids grow up to be 'artists'.
Thanks very much, and keep up your great work too!
