Hmmm. I'm not sure the "V" would work, because Maul could still swing back and forth like a swingset on a playground. with a "t" tie-up, pulled very tight, his upper body should be held immobilized so it won't twist, but also won't swing into Obi-Wan, or backwards behind his lower body when the air conditioning goes on.
My hanging ships sway a little bit: Luke's X-wing can turn 90 degrees to the left or right depending upon how high my air or heat may be on. I don't change that because it looks like he's flying and kind of cool. In Darth Maul's case though, it needs to be different and consequently more well-thought-out to hang him just right. It's also a long ways to the ceiling with a lot of fishing wire, while I still have to have Maul's upperbody, only a 12"s lightsaber width apart from his lower body (so he still looks like he's standing there in one piece from a distance). Most of my ships are hung closer to the ceiling since they are flying.
(and nothing is a cat toy in spite of 2 other opinions you might get from members of my household - so this must go in a carefully thought out location, too. - They leave my ships alone though - but there's nothing remotely close that they can jump up on to get close to them with).
Meow - Meow. [translation....just wait. We'll figure it out!]
