He’s just a crazy old man. He lives out in the middle of nowhere. He talks to himself. He thinks he’s some knight. So, Luke, you stay far away from that guy. Even if he offers you a free lightsaber. We don’t want you showing up on the back of a blue milk carton.
When we saw this over at Figures.com, we thought it was just another interpretation of Obi-Wan’s appearance in Revenge of the Sith. Then we noticed his arms and the state of his Jedi attire. It points to something we haven’t seen on screen yet. It’s undeniably Ewan McGregor, but where is he, and why is he wearing certain things?
This is all just speculation. Iron Studios does not have this statue listed on the official website yet. Obi-Wan’s robes look tattered. He is sporting what looks like bracers from the Clone Wars. His tunic also looks torn. Could this be Obi-Wan during his early years in isolation on Tatooine? With the Obi-Wan Disney+ series currently in production, this may be the case.
This wouldn’t be the first time a studio took a stab at Old Ben’s look during his exile, but those are not considered canon. I’d like to think that Obi-Wan just spent 20 years meditating in his hut, and that was that. Knowing Disney, he’ll be going on several off-planet adventures and probably interacting with Vader at some point. Sigh.
What we do know is that this statue is 1/10th scale. It will retail for $149.99. Obi-Wan is expected to ship in the second quarter of 2022. Other than that, we have very little to go on.
What are your thoughts on our theory? Could this be the first look we have at Obi-Wan as he’ll look in his upcoming series? Let us know in the comments.
