We received the following from Hasbro PR.
Hello, STAR WARS fans!
With great new Hasbro Star Wars items now hitting retailer shelves, we wanted to make sure you and your readers know about the exciting promotion Hasbro is currently running.
The “Darth Maul Giveaway” gives Star Wars fans the opportunity to win a life sized Darth Maul statue signed by George Lucas himself!

One (1) Grand Prize Winner will win the statue, and another one hundred (100) First Prize Winners will receive a Force FX Lightsaber. This sweepstakes runs until 8/31/12. No purchase is necessary to enter.
I’ve attached some pictures of this amazing statue, and information about the promotion and entry without purchase can also be found at http://hasbro.promotions.com/swdarthmaul.
As the break-out character from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, the Darth Maul Giveaway is only one of the ways that Hasbro is celebrating the theatrical release of The Phantom Menace 3-D on February 10th — the very first time a Star Wars film is being released in theatrical 3-D! On shelves now, fans can find a new line of Hasbro Star Wars Movie Heroes 3 3/4-inch action figures—each of which feature an amazing action feature—as well as the hot new collectable gaming line Star Wars Fighter Pods. Each feature not only beloved characters from Star Wars Episode I, but from throughout the Star Wars universe as well!
