Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 036 by TrevorGrove Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 036 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).

Wax is a tough medium to get the hang of right there in the beginning. Believe me, once you have that epiphany moment....you'll LOVE it. :) It's especially great for small figures, though I have done a 1:2 scale headsculpt in wax, and it works well for that too.

I'd love to see what you do with it!
Thanks,
Trev
