Here is the link...you have to scroll down to the 12th video on the left.
This really gives me pause from purchasing this statue.
I already have a similar problem with my Sideshow Spiderman, but I love it just the same.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Thank you and i do kinda notice it being a bit unstable. It looks like alot of weight on that one pressure point. However I really can't tell if its unstable or if they didn't secure it properly to that point.

I hope it's not unstable, this is one of the best statues I have seen.

Absolutely no need for concern over that video guys.

TSC Channel have a huge viewer base, so they are often sent prototypes by XM to show them off. You can see at the beginning of the video that the Maul they are unboxing is not in the usual XM packaging and does not have the XM black box or styro. It's just in a brown box with a piece of paper saying "Darth Maul". I was present for the setup at STGCC and that is how XM packs their prototypes.

The protos don't have the metal rods inside them like the production pieces do, as they are 3D printed rather than cast. So they are commonly unstable, and at conventions they are often held together with putty. The production pieces have also not finished production yet so it's definitely not a production piece.

Is the Star Wars line dead after this piece?

Not quite. There is the Luke/Yoda though haven't heard anything about it in a while. There also might be more that's not been announced if they get the go ahead.

Would love an update from XM.

I thought someone said the line was "on hold" after this. Not sure what that means though. They were supposed to be doing a Grievous on his ride.
