AKOTOBUKIYAJapanese import! The 1/7thscale Star Wars ARTFX series is back, and it’s back in a big way! In this line of great heroes and villains from the Star Wars universe is the Sith master of the double-bladed lightsaber,DARTH MAUL. Appearing inEpisode I: A Phantom Menace, Maul, an alien Zabrak, was the first member of the Sith to act openly in recorded history, ruthlessly attacking the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Darth Maul left a lasting impression on fans with his unique appearance and amazing lightsaber skills.
The Kotobukiya Darth Maul appears like you’ve never seen him before. Inspired by Katsushika Hokusai’s traditional Japaneseukiyo-e(“pictures of the floating world”) style, the Sith warrior balances atop a rocky outcropping in a samurai-like pose. Stripped to the waist, the Zabrak wears a tattered robe that twists and flows with incredible sculpted detail. In his state of undress Maul reveals a body covered in intricate Sith tattoos, while his snarling face captures his hatred for the Jedi and the all-consuming rage in his heart. Of course, no version of Darth Maul would be complete with his blood red double-bladed lightsaber, and this one even has a special light up feature!
Sculpted by Junnosuke Abe, Darth Maul stands approximately 11 inches (in 1/7thscale with all other Star Wars ARTFX Statues). With its detailed construction and unique styling, this Sith menace is a snap-fit kit that can be put together easily in seconds without glue or modeling skill!
