what do you think of him? i just got him yesterday, and he is a very good figure. the only problem is that the magnet doesn't hold the lightsaber very well...probably because it's a huge saber. other than that, one hell of a figure. great sculpt, great evil grin, very cool double bladed "sith lightsaber." just thought i would share my opinion....what's yours??????

I invited him round for tea. Very ameanable chap really. He has a degree in philosophy and archeology. His sister adopts orphans that no-one else wants and he has become godfather to several. His character is very stable and he's told me that he's ready to settle down and find the right girl, maybe raise a family too. He's looking teaching position at a University somewhere so he can continue his private studies while also passing on the benefit of his own learning and knowledge.
He has just started a charity for over tattooed people who cannot afford the laser treatment to rectify the exuberance of youthful folly. Maul regrets his silly tattoos but says he is going to keep them as a constant reminder to all the impressionable kids out there that they just aren't cool anymore. Tattoos - just say no kids.....

So my opinion of Maul is quite high. I hold him in the highest esteem for being an exemplary member of our modern society.

I think he is a pretty cool figure. But yeah, the magnet is pretty weak, especially when you do his twirlling move.......it often flies out of his hand........but over all a good fig, with a good pose.

I was impressed by the look of it. Sure beats some of those PM versions they came out with.

It looks great and I think it's the best Maul yet.:)

Glad you guys like him so much.

Personally I think he sucks. So, this makes the third EU version of Darth Maul? What a crock!:frus:

I think he looks much better than all of TPM's Mauls... Don't you people agree? But I must say he is quite up there with another of my favourite Maul, Darth Maul Sith Training...

Cheers :D

I was disgusted when I saw there would be yet another Maul released, but when I picked it up I was very impressed, I really like it. Even though it isn't movie accurate, I really like the look of this figure.

I would dearly love to actually see this figure in person so I could render an opinion here...

It was a lot better than I was expecting. It's dissapointing that he can't two hand his saber without looking goofy, but otherwise I have no complaints.

Well It's a pity we get a decent figure after 10 attempts to make it........

maybe after 10 more Qui gon and OBI wan's they'll become decent, maybe we'll get a decent Anakin by 2006, and a good Obiwan bearded in 2007.....

So we'll wait 'till 2008 to good EP 3 figures........

BTW it's the best maul out there....

we'll get the figs of Obi and Qui if Hasbro gets really lucky in the future. :)

I have been wanting this Maul since the pictures for it first came out a while back. I love the outfit is is wearing, and that the Lightsaber is Metal, not plastic.

I just hope I can find him soon.

No thanks, I'll pass on him just like I passed on the last few Darth Mauls. Someone should start on a "No More Darth Mauls" petition!

i'm going to start a petition to have no more petitons! it's redicuilous! episode II hasn't even been out for a year and everyone wants petitions signed! but for the darth maul, i say one or two more and then be done.

Well I think JSP Obi is quite decent enough aren't it? :) Qui Gonn if he is appearing in EpIII like what rumours say... Then I think its time for a really really really good fig of Quin Gonn!!

Also on hindsight... Its really nice of Hasbro and all to come out with a better new Maul but he's dead cut into half... enough is enough no more...

Cheers

I would have to agree, we have all the versions of this guy that we need and then some. Let's go out on a high note with this last Maul and call it good.

I like Maul Sith Training a lot! The magnet on my figure holds the lightsaber very well. The pose is not to bad, I just wish he could hold his weapon with both hands. The detail is very impressive too.
