The Disney Store is now offering their Star Wars Toy Box Darth Maul Figure for $12.99, and is a character that many Star Wars fans have been waiting for to join this line. Darth Maul has had quite a run in the franchise since his debut in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 1999. Darth Maul has been used a lot since then, including comics, and animated series, not to mention video games including Disney Infinity.
We’ve seen Disney Store has surprised fans with iconic character releases that we’ve been covering since 2017, and with Darth Maul, we’re hoping that Ob-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Mace Windu, Kanan Jarrus and other characters aren’t far behind.
Thank you to Disney and The Disney Store for providing their Star Wars Toy Box Darth Maul figure for review.
Availability: December 2019
Darth Maul is packaged in the standard Toy Box blister card, including an image of him on the side, and images of him and other figures that are also available. Darth Maul is numbered as 16 in the Star Wars Toy Box line.
Disney Infinity was Disney’s version of LEGO Dimensions, where franchises collide and characters can interact. These figures are loosely based on this game, and have been re-engineered and articulated to resemble the game’s likeness.
Darth Maul’s release has been highly anticipated since the start of the line, and this figure does not disappoint. Darth Maul is the third fourth figure to see released following Darth Vader, and two versions of Kylo Ren. The figure is quite impressive and is sculpted in his black robe with nicely done sculpted details. The lower part of the robe is made of a soft plastic in the front and back, and this allows the hips and legs to move more freely.
Darth Maul’s head sculpt includes the red and black facial deco along with the off-white horns on top of his head. The deco is quite detailed with nicely done black lines over the red. The eyes are white, red and black pupils, and his teeth are white.
Included his his duel red lightsaber that he can hold in one or two hands, and the hilt can break apart and become two separate lightsabers he can hold in each hand. This is most likely the only figure that has a lightsaber that can break apart like this as we can’t find any reference of him doing this. We’ve seen him use his lightsaber with only one side of the hilt lit, or two, but never holding it in two separate hands that can pull apart. This was a nice surprise and something not shown or advertised by Disney Store.
His articulation includes a ball jointed head, ball hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, swivel-hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles.
Overall, Darth Maul is an excellent figure and a great character for the Toy Box line. With his release, it makes the absence of Ob-Wan, Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus that much more noticeable. Hopefully those characters are coming sooner or later. Make sure to grab Darth Maul now before he’s gone, along with Venom and the TIE Fighter with Kylo Ren that are brand new as well.
