Desert Nomad Ben Kenobi

When Sideshow Collectibles announced through a teaser video back in Decemeber that they were going to be releasing a Desert Nomad Ben Kenobi Maquette, I knew I wanted to make this character into an action figure. So I started this figure with the SL12 Obi-Wan Kenobi, used the hands from some Clone Trooper and the Republic backpack was pinched from the Clone Wars line. The other parts were just fodder bits from my parts drawer…including a Tusken Raider sniper rifle, a pair of macrobinoculars, as well as the hilt of Anakin’s lightsaber (Luke’s future lightsaber) that I added to his belt. All his soft goods were roughed up and distressed, painted his beard and mustache fully (stock paint job was just horrible), and also painted some weathering to his clothing and boots.
