Now Sideshow is taking that approach, and bringing one of these designs to the 1/6 scale figure realm. Photos and details have been released for their Star Wars Mythos – Obi-Wan Kenobi Sixth Scale Figure. The figure shows Obi-Wan between Episodes III and IV, as he becomes the hermit of Tatooine known as Ben. Obi-Wan will include interchangeable hands, light sabers, a backpack, a removable cloak and more. Check out the details below and see the photos by reading on.

As a series, Sideshow’s Star Wars Mythos brings new and unique story details to popular characters from the well-loved Star Wars saga, emphasizing themes of honor, hope, and adventure to portray them in a new light.
The Obi-Wan Kenobi Sixth Scale Figure captures the period in the Jedi’s life as envisioned prior to A New Hope, following Revenge of the Sith.

The figure comes with 3 sets of hands including force hands, fists, and grip hands, and an additional right trigger hand for a variety of action poses.
Each artifact and memento carried by Obi-Wan holds history and represents a step of his nomadic journey across Tatooine, waiting to introduce a new hope to the galaxy. The figure features Obi-Wan’s lightsaber with a removable hilt, as well as Qui-Gonn Jinn and Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber hilts.
