One of the most difficult pieces to get a hold of in the United States is the Eopie and Qui-Gon beast assortment. Running for $100 apiece normally today it is definitely one of the best beast assortments from Episode I. Another rarity was the FAO Schwarz Darth Maul with Sith Speeder game. It was rumored to have a production run of 450, but is most likely untrue since it was probably sold oversees. Whatever the case it is impossible to get a hold of. The Masters of the Dark side 2-pack was also a rarity. Only found at Wal-Marts it was a prize to be obtained if not for the uniqueness of the Darth figures inside! Since itís release it has tripled in value.
Qui-Gon Jinn Tatooine (Eopie: exclusive outside U.S.)
Y-Wing Pilot (Y-Wing Fighter: Target exclusive)
Darth Maul (Sith Speeder hand held game: F.A.O. Schwarz exclusive)
Dart Maul (Masters of the Dark Side two pack)
Darth Vader (Masters of the Dark Side two pack)
So which is your best and worst out of this lot?
Qui-Gon Jinn (Eopie) - This Quigy had soft goods and very spread legs to sit on the Eopie. The figure did not look that bad, but once again the likeness was not that great.
Y-Wing Pilot - This white Nien Numb pilot was the exact same fig as the previously released Sullustian Pilot that came in the Rebel Pilots three pack. This fig however had less paint detail than the first version.
Darth Maul (Sith Speeder game) - This ultra rare figure is the same Maul that came on his Speeder Bike and has a brighter red face and dirt detail at the bottom of his robes. I saw this once, but good luck finding a picture of this on the internet. Itís so rare it doesnít even seem to exist.
Darth Maul (Masters of the Darkside 2-pack) - This Darth Maul was essentially a part replica of the soft goods Darth Maul. The lower body was no longer softgoods, and the arms could pose as if he was ready to engage Quigy and Obi. Enclosed is a picture of this fig for those who are not familiar with it.
Darth Vader (Masters of the Dark Side 2-pack) - This soft goods Vader was quite unique. Note the picture detail included with this post.
