*These guys aren't the most well articulated figures out there but they are fun, durable, and great to play around with. The mashing feature is fun to. While we have already had made a robo-Darth Maul using General Grievous' legs a few times, this guy is streets ahead of our creation! Of course, you can also throw the original Darth Maul legs on here and have a training Darth Maul (like the old Hasbro Power of the Jedi version).
* The sculpt is great on this figure and the paintwork is neat and clean. The tattoos look excellent; this is actually a pretty intimidating looking figure for still being presented in a stylized manner. The head seems to be different from the first version or Darth Maul. The horns seem a bit longer and the face looks a bit more pissed off.
* Maul's robotic legs are really well done. What's interesting is that they actually attach to the knee peg when it's completely facing behind the figure, giving them a curved, goat-like look. Mixing these in with Maul's red and black body and long horns definitely gives him a more devilish appearance than his previous figure. This was an excellent design job from Hasbro!
*The only negative I have with this figure is that there is a bit of a gap between the spider body and the torso. Even though I wouldn't hold this line to the same standard as The Black Series, I do wish it had been executed a bit more tightly. Of course, maybe this makes it easier for a more diverse range of characters in this line to take advantage of having spider legs.
