Star Wars Darth Maul ARTFX Statue









A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The 1/7th scale Star Wars ARTFX series is back, and it's back in a big way! Beginning an all new line of great heroes and villains from the Star Wars universe is the Sith master of the double-bladed lightsaber, DARTH MAUL. Appearing in Episode I - A Phantom Menace, Maul, an alien Zabrak, was the first member of the Sith to act openly in recorded history, ruthlessly attacking the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. While he may not have survived past that film, Darth Maul left a lasting impression on fans with his unique appearance and amazing lightsaber skills.

The all new Darth Maul appears like you've never seen him before. Inspired by Katsushika Hokusai's traditional Japanese ukiyo-e ("pictures of the floating world") style, the Sith warrior balances atop a rocky outcropping in a samurai-like pose. Stripped to the waist, the Zabrak wears a tattered robe that twists and flows with incredible sculpted detail. In his state of undress Maul reveals a body covered in intricate Sith tattoos, while his snarling face captures his hatred for the Jedi and the all-consuming rage in his heart. Of course, no version of Darth Maul would be complete with his blood red double-bladed lightsaber, and this one even has a special light up feature!

Sculpted by Junnosuke Abe, Darth Maul stands approximately 11 inches (in 1/7th scale with all other Star Wars ARTFX Statues). With its detailed construction and unique styling, this Sith menace is a snap-fit kit that can be put together easily in seconds without glue or modeling skill!

Looks awesome. The bare feet are a bit odd though...would have preferred the normal boots instead.

So glad this line is back and i think this is a fantastic start!

The pose is just awesome, i love Samurai style to it, especially how he is holding his light saber!

Also a light up saber!!! Was hoping this would happen!

Can't wait to see the rest of this line and hope we get to see some other Jedi like Kit Fisto & Plo Koon!

Yes, me too. The feets are totally offputting. I probably would have even preffered the Cyborg legs to his cheesy feet.

I would like to know if this line only will consist of NT characters or also OT.

I would very much like Bib Fortuna and Oola to be made and if not too obscure the Max Rebo Band and Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes.
