Inspired by the journey of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Iron Studios have revealed this new 1/10 Art Scale statue of Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan Kenobi. The statue is not specifically based on an onscreen appearance but rather combines aspects of Obi-Wan's journey and his exile on Tatooine after the events of Revenge of the Sith.
Kenobi is posed on top of desert rock with some wreckage beneath his. He is wielding his lightsaber and wearing his Jedi robes and cloak, but with the forearm armour and gloves of his Clone Trooper armour visible.
The statue is a 2022 release in the 2nd quarter (April - June)
The worn clothing and robe reflect the time and severity of the arid planet Tatooine, where the Jedi Master adopted the name Ben Kenobi to remain anonymous in his exile, watching over the safety of his future apprentice and protégé. With a stern countenance, he has a raised left arm and an open hand, which evokes the idea that the character is using the "Force", the source of his power, and his gift as a Jedi while wielding his majestic blue lightsaber in his right hand. The figure scales a rock-shaped base, with the remains of a technological artifact embedded in its surface. In this way, Iron Studios presents one more figure from a galaxy far, far away, in the form of the statue of the master "Obi-Wan Kenobi BDS Art Scale 1/10 - Star Wars - Iron Studios". A unique and exclusive version, by Iron Studios, in a scenario imagined and inspired by the elements of the Jedi hero's trajectory! A new concept by Iron Studios, which started with the statue of the fearsome General Grievous (already available on Pre-Order), and which will present this exclusivity along with other future Star Wars releases, by Iron Studios!
Obi-Wan mentored both Anakin Skywalker and his son Luke, training them in the ways of the Force. Born on the planet Stewjon, Kenobi was taken away as the Padawan apprentice of Qui-Gon Jinn. Kenobi became the first Jedi in a millennium to defeat a Sith Lord when he defeated Darth Maul during the Battle of Naboo. During this event, Jinn was seriously injured by Maul and died in Kenobi's arms. At Jinn's request, Kenobi took Anakin Skywalker as his Padawan apprentice. Anakin headed for the dark side of the Force, becoming Sith Lord Darth Vader. His beloved wife, Padmé Amidala, without his knowledge, gave birth to twins, Luke and Leia, but she died in childbirth. To hide from Vader the information that his children had survived, Leia became a Princess on the planet Alderaan, and Luke was raised by his uncles in the desert Tatooine, where he came under the protection of Obi-Wan, who later became his master.
In one of the most requested projects by fans, Obi-Wan will soon get his solo series through Disney+ streaming. The character will be played again by Scottish actor Ewan McGregor, who incorporated the character in the second trilogy of films, in episodes 1, 2, and 3 of Star Wars.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
