Toy maker Sideshow is introducing a new line of Star Wars figures they dub “Mythos.”
The Star Wars Universe is limitless with possibilities, its mythology ever-expanding. Our art team wanted to contribute to that expansion by telling new stories about some of the most compelling Star Wars characters. With the encouragement of Lucasfilm, we created the Mythos line of statues.
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 already have concepts and art for a Darth Maul and Obi Wan figurines. While these figurines look to be extremely well done, what really catches my eye are the interesting pieces of story that take place outside of the films. Obi Wan’s page includes a brief little first-person introspective that takes place just after he delivers Luke to Owen and Beru Lars.
While these figures are neat, I’ve got to agree with Dunc over at Club Jade …
Anyway, the “new” part of the equation? Psst, there are a few existing characters you guys haven’t done yet, in any form. I mean, we are still waiting for that Mara. Or even, hell, a Leia not wearing a metal bikini. Or a Padme. Have they ever done a Padme? An Ahsoka? What do the Gamorrean fans have that we don’t, Sideshow? TELL US.
I would buy these figures as well, Sideshow.
