What Did Obi-Wan Do Between Cutting Anakin's Legs Off And Meeting Han Solo?

There are decades between the time we last see Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode III and the first time we see him in Episode IV. Enough for him to transform from a strapping young Scottish man into an elderly English Academy Award winner.

If you've ever wondered what he looked like in that time, Sideshow's got a new statue line that aims to tell the story of Star Wars' characters between the stories we already know about.

First up is Obi-Wan, kitted out for his early years spent on Tatooine, where he first learned valuable things like where the nearest hives of scum and villainy are, and just how great a number sand people return in when they return.

Because it's still a work-in-progress, there are two heads (both unpainted prototypes, obviously), one looking like an older Ewan McGregor, the other a younger Alec Guinness.

Joining him is Darth Maul, in a pre-Episode I outfit that's based on the expanded universe comic Nameless.

The statues won't be out for a while, but damn, that Obi-Wan looks great.


    Um why has Obi-Wan got a gun in hid pack?, so uncivilised.

      Probably to hide the fact he's a Jedi. I'm sure after the events of Ep 3 that the Empire sent out parties on the rumours of jedi to exterminate them.

        Obi-wan is so great at hiding the fact he is a Jedi at seems. Even went as far to change his first name to "Ben". That sure threw the Empire off the trail.

        I would have said it was so he looked like a Tusken Raider from a distance, but he's carrying his own, Anakin's and Qui Gonn's lightsabers in plain sight so who knows.

    darth maul is one sexy beast

    That is some absolutely phenomenal sculpting work right there!

    Brilliant work on the model. What Obi-Wan did between going into hiding and his return with Luke is available to read in the Expanded/Extended Universe and can be found over here http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Obi-Wan_Kenobi#Exile_.2819_BBY.E2.80.930_BBY.29

    I want that chuck norris statue!
