2017 may almost be over, but we still have a couple galleries left! Today we are taking a look at Bandai Tamashii Nations Star Wars Movie Realization Sohei Darth Maul. Maul continues the Japanese warrior theme of the line with inspiration coming from the Sohei, or Buddhist warrior monks. Key features of their unique armor are present here including the shoulder armor, layered clothing and belt. Maul’s dual lightsaber gets re-imagined as a curved blade similar to a Sohei naginata weapon. He keeps his Star Wars Dathomirian Zabrak head with some stylistic changes, and comes with a removable Oni-style demon mask. Capping off the look are oversized prayer beads similar to Akuma in Street Fighter.
Overall it’s another impressive piece from the Realization crew, merging modern myths with classic Japanese style. With a full range of articulation and multiple hands, this 7 inch scale figure is a stand out on any Star Wars shelf. He also fills out the Realization line with some new looks, being the first one that can go unmasked. He’s out now in Japan, and will be available in the States in January. Read on to check out over 40 HD images of him in action!
