A while ago, Hot Toys teased an upcoming figure when they released the first images of Ahsoka Tano’s figure. In the corner of one of the images you just just make out part of Maul. Was this the Phantom Menace Maul? just from the smallest inclusion of Maul, it was very easy to tell that this Maul was vastly different to his more iconic look from the first Prequel. Which only led to one conclusion… we would be getting a brand new Darth Maul figure.
Much like Anakin and Obi-Wan, this figure will take the live-action figure and fit it with the outfit they wore in Clone Wars. While it is described as a new sculpt it seems as though the head resembles the Solo head sculpt which depicts Maul as more aged and worn.

In the climatic final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Darth Maul orchestrated the siege of Mandalore™️ as a means to draw Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi to him with plans to kill Skywalker and deprive Darth Sidious of his new apprentice. When he was greeted by Ahsoka Tano instead, he made the most of the situation by offering to form an alliance, two outcast apprentices joining forces to put a stop to the creeping evil of the Sith. After clashing lightsabers in the throne room of the capital city, Ahsoka turned Maul's own weapon against him and was able to capture the former Sith Lord for the Republic. Hot Toys is delighted to continue expanding its Star Wars: The Clone Wars collectible series by introducing the new 1/6th scale Darth Maul collectible figure from this acclaimed series! Skillfully crafted with authentic styling, the 1/6th scale collectible figure features a newly developed head sculpt with stunning likeness and separate rolling eyeballs system, finely tailored outfit, highly detailed mechanical legs, Maul’s iconic double-bladed lightsaber and interchangeable lightsaber blades emulating the weapon in motion, a selection of interchangeable hands for posing options, and a specially designed Mandalorian sarcophagus inspired box. This amazing Darth Maul 1/6th scale collectible figure is definitely going to be a great addition for any Star Wars fans! #HotToys #Collectibles #SixthScale #Lucasfilm #StarWars #TheCloneWars #DarthMaul
So what do you get with this new figure? Like with any Hot Toy, you’ll get a bunch of interchangeable hands (5 gloved hands and 4 bare hands) so you can recreate those epic poses. In addition to those, you’ll also get a pair of motion blades and a Led-lighted lightsaber.
One of the best features is, without a doubt, the inclusion of the Mandalorian sarcophagus used to keep Maul imprisoned after he is beaten during the Siege of Mandalore. However, I can’t imagine it being used since it would mean hiding Maul… but it makes a fantastic accessory. Espeicially with Ahsoka as a companion figure.
Darth Maul is available to pre-order via Sideshow. It is due out towards the end of 2021, so unfortunately an entire year away, and it prices at roughly £200.
