Darth Maul has been creating quite the buzz again with the final episodes of The Clone Wars. The last time fans saw him on the big screen was in Solo: A Star Wars Story. This was defiantly a shocker for fans who just watch the films since the last time we saw him was with his supposed demise in The Phantom Menace. It is still a mystery of Darth Maul's actions between Revenge of the Sith, Solo, and his final appearance in Rebels. Maybe we will get a comic book, novel, or another animated series showing his travels. Gentle Giant has announced today, on May the 4th, that Darth Maul will be getting a very special statue. The statue will feature Maul in a beautiful blue mold as if it were him in a hologram. The Solo: A Star Wars Story Darth Maul Holographic Mini Bust is very limited with only 500 units being made. The statue is fairly simple but we do get to a see an older style of Darth Maul with some likeness of Ray Park. We do get to see his lightsaber as well in a holographic form which is a nice touch. The limited edition size is defiantly appealing and will sell out pretty fast. Pre-orders will go up over the next 4 days and will go down by tier from Gentle Giants member rankings. You can apply to be a member here to have your chance to get the Darth Maul bust first. If not general public release will have their shot of May 8th but I don't think it will last that long. You will be able to find the pre-order links here and May the 4th be with you.
When you can't be there in person, send a hologram! Darth Maul beams a remote transmission to collectors as the newest mini-bust in Gentle Giant Ltd.'s Star Wars line. Measuring approximately 7 inches tall, this 1/6 scale mini-bust depicts Maul as he appears in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and is cast in translucent blue resin to simulate the hologram's effect. Limited to only 500 pieces, it comes packaged in a full-color box with a certificate of authenticity. A Gentle Giant Ltd Exclusive! $120.00
