This seriously has to be one of the coolest collectibles coming in 2013.
It’s Gentle Giant’s Limited Edition STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS Darth Maul Spider Statue and it’s frakkin awesome looking!
After surviving his bisection at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Darth Maul managed to find his way to the junk planet of Lotho Minor. There, he slowly succumbs to insanity while assembling a terrifying chassis designed to resemble spider legs from scrap metal. It is almost a decade before his brother, Savage Oppress, finds him and reintroduces his evil to the Galaxy…
The statue is hand painted and hand crafted from the highest quality polystone.
Each piece comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. I’m not sure of how many limited editions will actually be released. It seems that info is hard to find.
Measures 14 1/2-inches tall, making it one of the largest statues Gentle Giant has ever made.
You can pre-order this right now and you’ll find quite a few places to do it. But you’ll also find the prices are all over the place too.
From what I’ve seen it ranges between $300 and $500, depending on where you look. I’ll give you a few links if you want to check that out for yourself, but I can tell you Ebay is the clear winner in the price battle, by an arm and a robotic spider leg:
This is definitely one that’s going in my Star Wars statue collection.
