My Facination with the Fantastic


Welcome to the adventures of Obi-Rus Kenobi a fun little geeky look at my life from a “certain point of view.” I created this blog based on a hobby I have had for the last few years. Drawing inspiration from the Travelocity Gnome commercials and the Star Wars Mighty Muggs collectible line and my favorite character in Star Wars, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi I started photographing my Obi-Wan Mighty Mugg newly dubbed Lil Obi-Rus Kenobi as my “stand in” when I travel. My first attempt was during a trip to Hawaii and the angles and composition turned out a lot better than the “normal tourist” photos that people normally take and thus my hobby was born. Everything from just going out to eat, hanging with friends, to the Cons I try to capture Lil Obi-Rus’s adventures.

Also you might say the “mighty mugg looks nothing like you” well  yes that’s true, but people who have known me for awhile know my nickname is Obi-Rus Kenobi so seeing an Obi-Wan figure representing me was not a surprise. However I have been working on a custom Obi-Rus Kenobi 2.0 which is more to my likeness but still trying to perfect it which I hope to unveil on this site soon.

This blog will not just be about Lil Obi-Rus’s Adventures but sharing his thoughts, action figure new and links on geek/pop culture as well as art/media projects I’m working on. So hope you have fun, not take anything on this blog seriously as it all meant to be in good fun. Thanks and may the Force be with You!
