We haven’t seen the last of Darth Maul just yet

I had such high hopes for Darth Maul. Everything from his double lightsaber, to his black hooded cloak, to his red and black tattooed face, exuded seething menace. However, just as quickly as he was introduced, he was sliced in half at the waist by Obi-Wan. He was fighting like a boss right up to that point but then it was like he forgot his super-jitsu skills for a minute there. Just like Boba Fett’s unceremonious demise, I was rather disappointed in how Darth Maul went down and imagined him piecing himself together again to seek unholy revenge on those Jedi do-gooders (and it seems those running Lucasfilm/Disney agreed). Apparently Jarema had a similar notion for the fallen Sith Lord that takes an even more menacing stance.

Madness

Here we see a shirtless Darth Maul flexing his Deltoids, his snarling face like some kind of voodoo tomato. His bottom half is a horrific mechanical six-legged spider body with each leg terminating in a sword blade. A complex network of chains seem to fuse his upper and lower body together. The end result is madness, which incidentally is what the builder calls this piece.

Duel of the Fates

Often considered one of the best lightsaber duels in the entire Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, the face-off between former-Jedi-master-turned-pincushion Qui-Gon Jin, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Maul has inspired many LEGO fan creations over the years. This tribute by LEGO 7 features sculpted figures on a simple base. Both Obi-Wan and Darth Maul are fully poseable and ready for action.

And after the director yells “cut!”…

Obi-wan: “Wow, those lights are hot. Hey Maul… wanna grab a drink at Dexter’s later?”
Darth Maul: “If You’re buying.”

Classic Maul.
