Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 040 by TrevorGrove Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 040 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

I am sooo looking forward to this! Excellent job in combining the Alec Guinness and te Ewan. Depending on what view I take, I can see both in there. Saving up my pennies for sure!

What a bad ass idea with flawless execution... Great job blending both actors. I believe you are a sorcerer, sir.

Thanks! This is one I got to sculpt in its entirety (except for some of the Tusken Raider weapons and a lightsaber, which were printed from digital models).

It's funny, from some angles I see Alec Guinness while at others I see Ewan McGregor. Very well done. :)
