There have been a great many merchandise reveals as of late, feeding the hunger of a passionate Star Wars collectors fanbase. Yesterday saw the official reveals of the Black Series Jedi Knight Revan and Darth Nihilus action figures, bringing to life two highly popular characters from the Knights of the Old Republic video game series. In August, Hasbro also unveiled new The Vintage Collection figures and a Darth Sidious elite lightsaber.
One of the less mainstream but still popular areas of merchandise is the statue line. Star Wars fans destroyed the preorder button for the recently announced Hot Toys Ahsoka Tano figure based on her Siege of Mandalore appearance, alongside a 501st Battalion Clone Trooper. The Clone Wars era remains as popular as ever, and a different statue company is bringing a new figure from the time period to their line...
Sideshow Collectibles has revealed the General Obi-Wan Kenobi Mythos Statue, depicting the Jedi from his time during the Clone Wars.
The General Kenobi Mythos Statue will retail for $585 and can preordered on the official Sideshow website.
Below is General Kenobi in all his glory:

WHAT THIS MEANS
The Mythos line is unique, producing iterations of iconic characters that come straight from the word of legends. Obi-Wan Kenobi has always had the flair for the dramatic, and the Jedi General standing over a downed Super Battle Droid is the man of the hour in the latest Sideshow statue.
General Kenobi here is based on his appearances in both The Clone Wars and the 2D Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series from the early 2000's. Fans of the former are aware that the costume design was worn by Obi-Wan during the first two seasons of the show, while the Clone helmet was donned by the Jedi Master in the original show.
It's always great to see the prequel and Clone Wars era get some love, and the General Obi-Wan Kenobi statue will make a fine addition to many fans' collections. He served the Republic well during the Clone Wars, and now the Mythos Obi-Wan can serve your display case with equal valor.
