The Jedi master and the small princess in a unique statue by Iron Studios!
Through the chaotic streets of planet Daiyu, under the lights of tall buildings, luminous signs, and the eyes of mercenaries and relentless agents of the Galactic Empire, the former brave Jedi Master risks himself leaving his anonymity to fulfill at any cost his mission of rescuing the young princess from planet Alderaan and get her back in safety to her foster father. After saving and earning the intrepid and fearless girl’s trust, with her by his side wearing a green cloak bringing her small droid called Lola in one of her hands, and he alert, using a hooded cape to hide his identity, they both search for an escape route to fulfill their mission. Directly from the Star Wars spin-off series released on streaming service Disney+ in 2022, Iron Studios present their diorama statue ”Obi-Wan and Young Leia Deluxe- Obi-Wan Kenobi – Art Scale 1/10”, with the Jedi hero, master of Anakin Skywalker, next to his protectee, daughter of his former apprentice.
After the ascension of the Empire and the transformation of Anakin Skywalker into the Sith Lord Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi took one of Anakin’s twin children, Luke, without Anakin knowing about their existence, to the desert planet Tatooine, where he left him in the care of his uncles, while Luke’s sister, Leia, was being cared for by Alderaan Viceroy Bail Organa, to protect both and stop them to follow the dark paths taken by their father. Taking the alias of Ben Kenobi, he remained exiled in Tatooine to protect Luke, while Leia was raised as Bail’s daughter and princess of the Royal House of Alderaan. Obsessed with finding his old master and getting his revenge, Darth Vader tasked his Inquisitorius agents, a group of hunters and former Jedi that surrendered to the dark side of the Force, to find Obi-Wan. To attract Kenobi, the agent known as the Third Sister conspired and organized the kidnapping of Leia when she was 10 years old in Alderaan, for suspecting a friendship bond between Bail and Obi-Wan. Tracking the mercenary that kidnaped Leia, Bail informed Kenobi, that went to planet Daiyu to save her. While escaping with the small princess, in this adventure they created strong friendship bonds that united them ever since in the fight against the Empire.
Presenting incredible realism and fidelity to the features of actors Ewan McGregor and Vivien Lyra Blair that respectively played Obi-Wan and Leia, produced based on the original references, over a detailed base replicating down to the tiniest details of the scene, with the small Leia bringing her L0-LA59, a feminine toy droid with a small pair of wings nicknamed Lola, a homage to the bird pet called Lola of actress Carrie Fisher (the classic adult Princess Leia) when she was a child. This Deluxe statue was presented for the first time at D23 Expo 2022, where Iron Studios also revealed it as part of their now global Star Wars license. This is the first Iron Studios statue derivative from the Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries from streaming service Disney+, developed by Lucasfilm, that tells the adventures of the Jedi master 10 years after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Revealed in detail on the monthly show Inside Iron Studios Day on YouTube, the statue is already available for Pre-Order. Soon, more news from a galaxy far, far away will be delivered worldwide by Iron Studios.
