We hope you’ve all had a very exciting Star Wars Day. In honor of such a celebratory occasion, we bring you the fantastic Star Wars Darth Maul Mythos Statue.
If I had to pick which member of the Sith clan has the most frightening face of all time, it would have to be Darth Maul. Sure, Darth Vader and Darth Sidious have broken a few mirrors in their days, even without using the dark side of the force. But it’s Darth Maul’s face that would have me running for the hills, or off to another planet. Can I have an escape pod, please?
Sideshow Collectibles is proud to announce the Darth Maul Mythos Statue. Inspired by the Star Wars Tale ‘Nameless’, the powerful Sith is envisioned in a strong, almost meditative pose; incorporating design elements reminiscent of a Ronin warrior. Crafted in 1:5 scale with Sideshow’s trademark attention to detail, the Darth Maul Mythos statue stands over 18 inches tall; a distinctive addition to any collection.
- Switch out hands, Maul is armed with his signature lightsaber, or wields both lightsaber and wooden staff.
- Switch out portraits, choose between Maul’s meditative or menacing expressions
But like pugs, Maul’s ugliness is what we cherish most about him. Kids love him because he’s the baddest bad guy to beat.
As you can see, Darth is clearly up to no good and is about to pull out a can of the dark side special. You wouldn’t want to be anywhere near him when he’s in this state of mind, if at all. Wow, you can even switch his facial expressions to bear either his contemplative, closed-mouth look, or his frightening never-been-brushed teeth look!
The Darth Maul Mythos Statue is only available for pre-order for £199.99 at Forbidden Planet. Shipments are expected to arrive at the warehouse by January 15, 2013. In the US, you can pre-order the statue from Sideshow Collectibles for $249.99, and shipments are set for October this year.
In case you were wondering, there is plenty of more affordable Darth Maul merchandise to be had, including the Star Wars Darth Maul Lego Flashlight, Darth Maul Pop Vinyl Bobble Head, and Darth Maul Wallet.
May the 4th be with you.
