Sideshow Collectibles has unveiled a new premium Darth Maul figure, which should ship sometime in July or August to those collector’s with deep enough pockets to pay for his $519.99 asking price. Don’t let that price scare you though if you’re a lover of all things Maul, because this figure, which is more of a statue than poseable figure, is truly a gem to behold.

This Maul stature stands at nearly almost 20-inches tall, and is a perfect replica of Ray Park in his Darth Maul makeup and costume from The Phantom Menace. We all know that movie and its sequels were pretty terrible, but at least the prequels gave us characters like Darth Maul, who to this day is still one of the raddest Star Wars characters in the galaxy.

You can pre-order him now, and he even ships for free to those collectors in the U.S., so head over to Sideshow’s site if this is a statue you feel you must own. You can check out more images in the gallery below, as well as read the official description from Sideshow’s posting.

ABOUT THIS PREMIUM FORMAT FIGURE

“At last, we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last, we will have revenge.”

Darth Maul may be one of the greatest villains to emerge from the Star Wars universe. A figure cloaked in shadow, he broadcasts his intentions through his terrifying tattooed visage, leaving little to the imagination. It is no wonder that Sidious chose Maul as his apprentice.

Our Darth Maul Premium Format™ Figure captures the highly detailed likeness of Ray Park as the feared Sith. From a tattooed face beneath a crown of thorns, his gleaming yellow eyes pierce onlookers, while his stance – light-up double-bladed lightsaber clenched in hand – is one of absolute power and control. Wrapped in a fabric costume, the piece begins to exude the grace and intensity of this imposing character.
