Mythos Obi-Wan Figure

At San Diego Comic Con, Lucasfilm announced an all-new Mythos Obi-Wan Kenobi Figure by Sideshow, which has been warmly received by collectors, reviewers, and press alike.
 
Depicting Ben Kenobi as a solitary nomad wandering the desert wastes of Tatooine, this incredibly detailed and fully poseable sixth scale figure envisions the Jedi master at a point in his life prior to the events in Star Wars: A New Hope, following Revenge of the Sith

The Mythos Obi-Wan Kenobi figure features a wealth of accessories and subtle details hinting at his action-packed life as a Jedi Knight, from lightsabers to relics of war. Simply overflowing with nods to iconic moments from across Star Wars lore, this is a figure made by fans, for fans.
 
This week, starwars.com revealed an up-close look at Obi-Wan Kenobi Mythos with an exclusive first look at five new images of the figure.  Now, we're happy to unveil the full photo gallery - showing all of the details that make him so unique!


"We had this unique opportunity, working with Lucasfilm to create a whole new moment in Obi-Wan’s life. There’s a huge responsibility there for us as artists, but also as fellow fans" - Kevin Ellis, Sideshow Project Manager


Fans, collectors & press will be able to see this figure first-hand at New York Comic Con next month (October 5-8 2017). Visit Sideshow at booth #1912.

STORMS OF CRAIT #1

A new adventure for Luke and Leia begins this December
                                                                                                              
Marvel’s STAR WARS comics have pulled back the curtain on fan favorite Captain Phasma, introduced the world to rogue archeologist Doctor Aphra, and crafted stories that have enthralled fans across the galaxy. This December, even more secrets will be revealed when Marvel releases STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT #1. Written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (Star Wars: Join The Resistance) with art by Mike Mayhew (Star Wars, The Star Wars), the new mini-series gives fans a look behind the curtain at one very special planet in the galaxy: the mineral planet Crait.

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it becomes a battleground between the Resistance and the First Order,  but that wasn’t the first time Crait became a place where heroes and villains clashed in their fight for the galaxy. Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa once took up arms on Crait and led the rebellion as they as they searched for a new home – and a new base for the Rebel Alliance. Tying in to the eagerly anticipated December film, STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT promises to be a new and exciting adventure for all Star Wars fans – and a story that will change the galaxy as we know it.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to tell this story,” said editor Jordan D. White, “Tying the new sequel series in more tightly with the original trilogy era, and helping make the Galaxy Far Away a little more fleshed out. The Bens are a great fit in for Star Wars, as they showed in Join the Resistance, and Mike has did such great work on both covers and the Obi-Wan issues of the flagship Star Wars title, that we couldn’t be happier to have him back doing art for us.”

Find out what mysteries Crait holds for yourself when STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT hits comic shops on December 27th!

john williams competition

Any John Williams fan will tell you that one of the hardest questions they can be asked is "which one piece from John Williams is your absolute favourite?"  It's such a difficult question to answer, mainly because of course the maestro has written so many wonderful and memorable masterpieces.

However if we tweak the question slightly and ask "name one of your favourite pieces from John Williams?" then that's not so bad as its not asking for your all time favourite and that's exactly what we're going to ask you here on The Bearded Trio.  We want to know some of your favourite John Williams tracks.

The best answer will win a copy of the two CD "John Williams Soundtracks" performed by the The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.  The two disc compilation features some of John Williams' classics such as E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jurassic Park but it also features some not so well known pieces such as JFK, The Poseidon Adventure and Presumed Innocent.  Here's the track listings from the two discs:

  13. Presumed Innocent: End Titles
  14. Dracula: Main Titles & Storm

So to be in with a chance of winning this awesome soundtrack collection just:

Tell us one of your favourite John Williams pieces and why.  

Post your answers either below, on our Facebook page or Twitter page.  You can enter as many times as you like but each entry has to be a different answer.

Closing date is Sunday 24th September, 4pm GMT.  The competition is open worldwide.  We will select the best answer and will contact the winner for a postal address so we can get the CD in the post within the week.  We cannot substitute the prize or be responsible for loss in the post.

Good luck.

cary guffey now and then

As Steven Spielberg's sci-fi masterpiece "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" celebrates its 40th anniversary, the film's young star is all grown up and says people still recognize him. Cary Guffey says, "I actually do still get fan mail." Guffey, now 45, charmed audiences in the hit movie about UFOs descending on planet Earth. The former child star now lives in Birmingham, Al., where he lives with his wife, Michelle, and kids. He gave up acting decades ago and now works as a financial adviser.
