When Darth Maul isn’t threatening Obi-Wan Kenobi or running an underground criminal collective, he’s busy posing. Sideshow Collectibles recently teased a new Darth Maul Mythos collectible, and we’re excited to exclusively share a first look at the full statue. This continuation of their popular Mythos line is both elegant and terrifying at the same time. Look how fierce! Look how powerful! And check out those robo-legs.
As contemplative and deliberate as Maul can be, he’s really a character of action. This dynamic pose featuring the villain in a fully sculpted costume captures Maul’s combat prowess and force beautifully. The Zabrak warrior is leaping from the ruins of a Sith Temple monument. Just look at the fallen statue under his foot. And that’s not the only image we have to share.
The statue has an alternate head you can swap in when you want a more feral Maul with long horns. It’s reminiscent of his look when he made his return in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Maul has become one of the best villains in Star Wars. I count him second to only Darth Vader. It’s fitting that he should be immortalized in this striking collectibles line. He joins Asajj Ventress and Darth Sidious in Sideshow’s Mythos statue line. Sideshow really pours their admiration and love of the Star Wars universe with these designs. That line also includes 1:6 posable figures with Mythos Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mythos Boba Fett. But back to Maul, let’s take a one more look at the figure:
The Mythos line started a few years ago, so these new additions are sort of a comeback. But if you want to see where it all began, you can learn more in Sideshow’s new book Star Wars: Collecting a Galaxy – The Art of Sideshow.
You can RSVP to pre-order the Darth Maul Mythos statue at Sideshow Collectibles. It’s expected to be available for pre-order on Thursday, May 21.
