There are years 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.
