UPDATE 4:44 PM MT 7/16/2019: Solo: A Star Wars Story Darth Maul 1/6 Scale Figure is available for pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles. Listed at $274.00, Darth Maul is slated for an October 2020 – December 2020 release.
Hot Toys seem to be just pulling announcements deep out of left field as we approach SDCC. Seeing a second DX Darth Maul come out was a play right out of M. Night Shyamalan’s book.
Full gallery and details below. We’ll update with pre-order info as it comes in.
Unlike the previous Hot Toys figure based on Maul’s appearance in the Phantom Menace, this figure depicts a more grizzled and aged Maul from Solo, complete with articulated robotic legs and Crimson Dawn medallion. Like the Phantom Menace Darth Maul, this figure also comes with independent rolling eyeballs. Another thing that really intrigues me about this figure is that his red and black tattoos appear to extend down to his torso. I’m wondering how far down that goes and if we get the opportunity to pose a shirtless Maul a la Sideshow’s Mythos statute.
It’s a strange move, because we already have three Darth Maul figures to choose from. There’s the $239.99 Sideshow Battle of Naboo Darth Maul available now, the $282.00 Hot Toys Phantom Menace Movie Masterpiece Darth Maul scheduled to release this month or next, and the $405.00 Hot Toys Phantom Menace Movie Masterpiece Darth Maul with Sith Speeder schedule to release this month or next.
The Solo: a Star Wars Story Darth Maul 1/6 Scale Figure is slated for a quarter 4 2020 release.
From Hot Toys:
Surprised many Star Wars fans with his appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story, audience discovered that the deadly Darth Maul has survived to build an empire of his own as the true leader of Crimson Dawn. Operating from his homeworld of Dathomir, Maul commanded the crime syndicate with the help of refined figurehead and terrifying enforcer Dryden Vos, who traversed the galaxy on his lavish yacht entertaining and brutally imposing the will of his master. After his death, Dryden’s first lieutenant Qi’ra assumed control over the territories, working closely with Maul to continue their rule.
