3 Stars out of 4

While most of STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 seems to have been; manufactured strictly for kids, the demonic-looking Darth Maul sure wasn't. Maybe that's why he's so freaking cool. And since everything with Darth Maul's face on it is currently experiencing phenomenal, "blink-and-it's-gone-off-the-shelf"-like sales, this action figure should be no exception. Especially with it's nifty lightsaber-swinging action feature. Yes! Now you too can recreate the ultimate three-way showdown between Darth Maul, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan; and while you're at it-experiment with 'what-if' scenarios such as: "What if Darth Maul had disemboweled Obi-Wan instead?" Heh.

The Deluxe Darth Maul figure comes with a special plastic post; which also serves as a smaller version of a lightsaber. By clipping the figure onto the post, you can activate Darth Maul's menacing lightsaber swinging moves. You can also use the post to spin and rotate the figure; achieving nearly the same illusionary effect of the famous Jet-Li style; flips and summersaults that Maul exhibited in the final duel. The detailing on this figure is pretty alright, with the sculptors managing to get Darth Maul's evil facial sneer correct. The horns look a little blunt, though. As for articulation, it's the standard stuff you'd expect from a Hasbro Star Wars figure. Read: knees don't buckle. Overall, I was happy enough with the toy, and I think you'd be too. Hey, it's Darth Maul! Don't think- just buy.

Oh yeah; for serious collectors who are prone to torturing themselves with the usual "Should I open it?? / Should I leave it in the box??" -type questions, the good news is that the action figure comes with a cut-out hole in the back of its packaging card. This allows you to insert your finger and operate the lightsaber feature without necessarily having to rip out the packaging. Thus you can have fun with your toy nd retain its collectible value at the same time. Hooray!! Those Hasbro guys think of everything.
