Toy Maniac: 10 Must Have Darth Maul Collectibles

Toys, Comics, and Statues

This week on The Clone Wars, the dark warrior, Savage Opress, is on a quest to find his long-lost brother. Could Darth Maul truly be alive after more than a decade since his gruesome bisection at the blade of Obi-Wan Kenobi? Savage voyages into the depths of a twisted planet to find whatever became of the fallen Sith Lord. “Brothers,” airs at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT Friday, March 9th on the Cartoon Network. With the return of Darth Maul this week, the Toy Manic thought he would bring you 10 of his Must Have Darth Maul Collectibles. By going the “collectible” route we can escape a lot of happy meal toys and focus on a few other must have Maul items.
 
10. Darth Maul – Shadow Hunter Novel

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

How did Maul get to where he was in the Phantom Menace? “Shadow Hunter”, a novel by Michael Reaves, is a fun and quick read in the style of old Sci-Fi pulp books. Currently, the hardcover edition is .75 cents on Half.com.
 
9. Darth Maul MIMOBOT

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

The what? Mimobot is a company that makes designer flash drives. Now, flash drives are getting to the point where they are a dime dozen. However, do you really want a plain old boring drive? No. Check out the Mimobot site and pick how many GBs you want Maul to carry.
 
8. Star Wars Tales Comic #9

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

It was a show down fans wanted to see since the first Episode 1 trailer. Leave it to the great minds of Dark Horse Comics to have it actually happen. Penned by Ron Marz and having multiple covers, this was the issue to read from the short-lived anthology comic. The ending is perfect and captures what the winner exactly thinks of himself. Check out the issue available for digital download on DarkHorse.com.
 
7. Darth Maul Coffee Mug

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

Star Wars Episode 1 was a juggernaut of products. Sadly, many of them we’re as thrilling as Jar Jar’s dialogue. For every 10 Jar Jar inspired items there was one cool Darth Maul product. The coolest of the mugs was by far the head of Darth Maul. Designed by Applause, it is essential for the Sith Lord’s dark brew.
 
6. 12" Electronic Talking Action Figure - Darth Maul

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

There was an earlier 12-inch Darth Maul, but he was kind of frumpy. This one not only had the demonic snarl, but came with lightsaber swinging action and sound effects.
 
5. Darth Maul (Final Duel)

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

There are plenty of Darth Maul figures by Hasbro since the first one. This is the best of the line. Simplistic and cunning, no other Maul shines better than this one.
 
4. Darth Maul Animated Maquette

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

Again, we have to look to outside the movie paraphernalia for another great collectible. Gentle Giant released this version of Darth Maul, shirtless and using his dark force lighting. A great look for Maul and different from what we will probably see in the Clone Wars series. Check out Gentle Giant’s site for this now-on-sale item.
 
3. Darth Maul with Mechanical Legs

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

Before it was ever mentioned that Darth Maul would return to the Star Wars Universe, Sideshow Collectibles released a premium format figure of Maul with mechanical legs. Limited to 1250 pieces, this Sideshow Collectible is still available (check out the details here).
 
2. Darth Maul and his Sith ship Bloodfin

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

Gentle Giant products might come with a hefty price tag, but the craftsmanship is totally worth it. This release is from 2008 so it might be a tad harder to find (check here). Until now, I never new the Sith Speeder Bike had a name, Bloodfin.
 
1. Darth Maul Legendary Scale

Best Products to Buy for Darth Maul fans

Sideshow Collectibles is already taking orders for a 40 inch tall Darth Maul that supports their new “Legendary Scale”. The price is up there, but the details are amazing. This might be the finest figure they have ever created in relation to how much screen time he actually had. Check out the full details on SideshowCollectibles.com.

I have the original Sideshow premium format figure. I'm not as enamored with him as some so I never bought the  cyborg edtion.

I recently placed an order for the legendary scale Wolverine to accompany my 40inch IronMan. Darth Maul won't quite fit in

 I have a few Maul things.  Key chain, action figure signed by Ray Park, 12" figure, card board standee, and a jar similar to the ceramic thing above.  I guess thats more than a few things.

I've got the Darth Maul Unleashed figure, which is really cool looking.  More of a statue than an action figure, but it looks awesome.  Admittedly, it looks less awesome in a box in the closet with all the rest of my Episode I stuff.  I generally try to pretend TPM didn't happen.
