Kotobukiya’s Facebook Page has added a few photos and some info on their upcoming Star Wars Darth Maul The Phantom Menace ARTFX+ Statue.
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The hit line of smaller scale Star Wars ARTFX+ Statues continues with more of your favorite heroes and villains from the original films and the prequels! Up next is the first movie’s new Dark Lord of the Sith and bane of the Jedi, the vicious Darth Maul The Phantom Menace! Master of the double-bladed lightsaber, Maul was an alien Zabrak and the first member of the Sith to act openly in recorded history when he ruthlessly attacked the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine. While he may not have survived past The Phantom Menace (or did he?), Darth Maul left a lasting impression on fans with his unique appearance and amazing lightsaber skills.
Darth Maul brings a powerful presence and fantastic action poses to your Star Wars ARTFX+ collection! The Sith Lord wears his unique layered black robes, open at the waist to allow the martial artist plenty of freedom of movement in his acrobatic attacks. Maul crouches in a sideways stance, presenting the smallest cross-section of his body to his enemies. His exact pose is up to you; with multiple interchangeable arms and heads you can display your Dark Lord in a variety of configurations with hands and lightsabers held up or down, and with a scowling face or a vicious snarl! Of course, the Zabrak’s face is decorated with his intricate facial tattoos, and the detailed sculpt really shows off his ring of horns and textured clothing.
ARTFX+ Statues are fun-to-assemble pre-painted snap-fit kits that can be easily put together in seconds without glue or modeling skill. Darth Maul stands nearly 7 inches tall (1/10 scale) and will look great displayed alongside your other Star Wars ARTFX+ statues. At last you can reveal your “shelves” to the Dark Side!
Available June 2012.
