Sideshow Collectibles is kicking off a new line of Star Wars statues labeled Star Wars Mythos:

“This line of collectibles will be populated by characters from new and existing story lines. We will bring history, unique details and personal choices to each in order to elaborate on who they are. Through the design and sculpt process our goal is to delve deeper into these established characters and offer our own interpretations of what they have done outside of the Star Wars canon.”

They have a great site setup that shows some beautiful new artwork relating to each piece, cool little back stories, and the sneak peaks of the statues themselves. It’s suffice to say that these statues look AWESOME! Take a look below at some of the wonderful images and be sure to visit the site to real all the cool back stories written from different perspectives for each piece.

Ben Kenobi – Desert Nomad

“The boy is safe. Lars cannot hide his distaste for me, given my connection to the child’s father. Beru, however, is clearly smitten with the infant. But my presence is not welcome in their house. That is fine. I’ll watch over the child from a distance.”

“But for now, I feel old. Old beyond my years. Desert life ages flesh and spirit, so I can only expect this to worsen the longer I remain on this world. The Tatooine storms will whip me with sands like a scourge. Each night I will hear in the winds the howls of my murdered Jedi kindred.”

“Be mindful of the future, but not at the expense of the moment. The boy is what matters. He IS the future.”

 

Darth Maul – Dark Disciple

The winds throw a stinging sand across his bare skin, while his black robe snaps around the metallic hilt of the saberstaff hanging dormant at his waist. Maul is coiled, lethal, the force of his will pent-up with the violent need for his muscles to spring. Closing his eyes, he finds and grasps an agonizing memory.

Torture.

 

The site also gives a tease of other statues such as Boba Fett, Darth Vader, and Lomrokk (a new character).

You can check it all out on their official site. The little narrative by Obi-Wan by it itself is worth the visit, so don’t miss out.
