This epic Star Wars statue captures the greatest battle of the Clone Wars
There is certainly no shortage of Darth Maul collectibles on the market, but Gentle Giant may have outperformed them all. The company is teasing a brand new statue of Darth Maul inspired by one of the iconic villain’s most memorable appearances.
The Darth Maul Milestones statue is based on Maul’s appearance in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, specifically his clash with Ahsoka Tano in Season 7’s “The Phantom Apprentice”. Take a closer look in the gallery slideshows below:
The statue is designed in a 1: 6 scale and measures approximately 12 inches in height. While clearly inspired by The Clone Wars, the play seems to go for a more realistic version of the character rather than recreating the style of the animated series.
However, you won’t be able to pick up the Darth Maul Milestones statue anywhere. The statue is limited to 1000 pieces and will be sold exclusively on the Gentle Giant website. Currently, pre-orders are only open to Platinum and Gold level members of Gentle Giant’s Premier Guild. Pre-orders will extend to Silver members on Tuesday, October 5, and open to the general public on Wednesday, October 6. The statue is expected to ship in the spring of 2022.
Gentle Giant will also be releasing a companion Ahsoka Tano Milestones statue in the near future. Anyone who pre-orders Darth Maul will have early access to pre-order Ahsoka when the time comes.
We’re not surprised that Gentle Giant chose to immortalize Maul and Ahsoka’s final battle in Clone Wars. We gave “The Phantom Apprentice” a perfect 10 in our original review, saying that “‘The Phantom Apprentice” is one of the best – if not the best – episodes of The Clone Wars. It builds on two of the most compelling and well-developed characters in the series, forging a much deeper connection and providing some great fight scenes along the way. “
We’ve also ranked the entire “Siege of Mandalore” storyline at the top of our list of the best Clone Wars episodes and story arcs.
