This does look great though.
I didn't realise anyone liked anyone else except for Maul from the prequels.

Though I personally liked Obi-Wan in the prequels more than in the original trilogy. Blasphemy I know.

Sad that ten years later they still need the stencil to do the tattoo art on his face.

I think a lot of people are waiting on a ROTS Obi Wan PF.

Way more people have no issue with the prequels than you would think. I think ROTS is the third best Star Wars movie and would love a Obi-Wan PF from that era.

Prequels gave us great villains: the four Sith Lords, Jango Fett, General Grievous, even weasels like Nute Gunray. It was the Jedi that came out looking foolish and incompetent.

This one is interesting. I'll be keeping my eye on it for sure. Although I can't say I love the new base style on the Kylo Ren 1:1 bust, having the arm of the base at the rear left a lot of empty space that could have either been filled with a nicer looking front arm for the base, or more of his outfit hanging down and tapering off making it more like the style of the legendary scale busts which have always been aesthetically pleasing in their shape. I'm assuming this will be a similar style. Not to knock this before it's even revealed of course, I'm sure it'll be great, just a personal observation/opinion about the bases specifically. Maul will always look great when done right....

Despite the common opinion. There's an awful lot of stuff to like from the prequels, in terms of characters, world and vehicle design etc. I'm happy to see Sideshow and others still producing prequel stuff.

Me too, prequel Obi-wan was awesome. And so were the prequels in general.

This bust looks very good.

Darth Maul and Duel of the Fates were 2 things from the prequels that reached the heights of the greatness of the original trilogy.

Unlike most I love other than his short time how Maul was portrayed.
No speeches, no back story, no negotiation, no tiresome unsatisfactory exposition, just the emotional reaction to a villain with a visual appeal rivaling Vader's whose sole purpose is to hunt down and kill. Star Wars's version of a horror movie character.
I just wish he'd kept hunting until the 2nd movie before Obi-Wan took him out.

As much as I love Maul I disregard and ignore all superfluous EU (yes including the Clone Wars cartoons!) material looking to cash in on his popularity as it simply dilutes his appeal.
