The Star Wars movies covered a huge chunk of time but some things remain unknown. The Ben Kenobi Mythos Polystone Statue provides a great look at what might have happened between Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi becoming Alec Guinness’ Ben Kenobi.
Exactly what did old Obi-Wan do while waiting for Luke Skywalker to become old enough to take up the mantle of the Jedi? According to this artistic representation, which does an excellent job of blending the two actors’ features together, the defeated warrior wandered the barren landscape of Tatooine, doing his best to survive while adding to his trophy collection whenever anyone was foolish enough to confront him.
In addition to hand-painted portraits of Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor, the statue features backpack loaded with all of Kenobi’s possessions, including:
- Tusken rifle and bladed weapons, disarmed from Raiders during his travels
- Jawa Bandoliers
- Armor from Ben’s service in the Clone Wars
- Keepsakes from Ben’s fallen Master Qui-Gon, poncho and lightsaber
- Anakin’s lightsaber, held by Ben for Luke to come of age
- Water cistern
- Jerba skin rug
If you’re a Star Wars fan, you’re going to want this peek at life between the two trilogies, and Sideshow Collectibles is the only place to get it because this is an Exclusive Release.
The Ben Kenobi Mythos Polystone Statue will be available in November 2012 but you can pre-order it now for $349.99 or $87.50/mo under the payment plan at Sideshow Collectibles.
