    Darth Maul Sith Lord (Black Vest)

    Hey what's up?
    Nothing here...just "chillen".

    Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get me hands on one of these. I've been looking for some (want two, one to open, one to keep all nice, you know ) but I really don't want to pay the $300 or more that they're going for on Ebay. I tried it once, but I didn't win it, and I'm actually glad that I didn't. That's really waaaaaaaaaaaay too much to spend.
    So, if anyone could help me out, I'd 'preciate it!

    The only place that I know of that has them is Brian's Toys. I am not sure of the prices though.

    Well, I was thinking about TRU. I've been to a few and they seem to have about a million Sith Lord Mauls, so maybe somewhere would have one with a black vest.
    If anyone happens to see one at their TRU, pick one, or two up for me, and I'll be happy to pay you back. Thanks.

    Why would you want to open up a costly variant like this one? The whole idea is to keep it in the package because of its high price. Why not just get one to collect and get a regular grey vest one to open?

    Because I'm wierd...

    And because I open variations. I even opened a Darth Vader with long saber. I just think that it's cool to have the variant open and maybe have one to put away.

    Just send me $300 and I'll sell you one that I painted black just a couple of minutes ago!

    Deal!

    Screw that, GNT, maybe I'll sell him some prime "waterfront" real estate I've been holding on to. Maybe he'll even want my vintage Ford Pinto variant without the exploding gas tank.

    You know, I have always heard that SSG was a place for collectors and fans to get news and get help when they were looking for some things.
    Well, all I asked (and I asked pretty nice too) was if someone could help me find a black vest maul, that's not $300 or more. Hell, most I would pay would be $20, and I thought if someone could find one at TRU (or anywhere for that matter, and if they're not scalpers, and they just want to help someone out) they could pick it up for $3 and then they could make a few extra bucks, if they wanted.
    That's all I asked, and I just getting criticism for opening variants. It's what I do, and that's my business - I don't tell you what to collect or what to open. If you didn't want to help me out, you didn't need to reply.

    I can honestly tell you that I have scoured the clearance rack of TRU, not for black vest Mauls but for a Maul figure who has a decent face. They mess his paint up a lot! As for your question, I have never seen a black vested variant (in fact I didn't even know one existed until you mentioned it); but if I do I will pick one up for you.

    I think this comment was probably directed at me so I'll explain my response. I've been a regular forum contributor for the past two years and have been coming to this site longer than that. There have been TONS of people always commenting and asking about the value of variants; from legitimate like right-handed lightsaber classic R2 and black-vest Maul to the ludicrous like Senator Palpatines with extra globs of paint that were misapplied to his robes. IMO it's become kind of a running joke around SSG about people asking how valuable their very obscure variant is, almost like people are just buying stuff in the longshot that it may give them an early retirement due to possible resale value.

    I apologize if my comments came off rude to you. I wasn't belittling your desire to get the variant, I was only amused that someone would pay a lot of money for a VHTF variant and then open it. I thought maybe you would have understood that due to my tongue-in-cheek comments that I was just joking with you. Again, I'm sorry if I offended you.
