2012 Darth Maul w/Sith Speeder
« on: April 16, 2012, 07:59 PM »
Medicom is reissuing the Darth Maul w/Sith Speeder with a new face deco (angry teeth) and maybe? revised soft goods.

I'll be getting this one since I missed the first version and I like the face on this one a lot more.

"ENOUGH WITH THE RE-ISSUES!!!" said the angry completist shaking his fist in the air...

Don't get me wrong, I'm one of the biggest Darth Maul fans out there and will get this (hopefully for less than what I paid for the original version), but I'd really like to start seeing some originality from Medicom again at some point.

Wow, where did this come from?

At least people can now stop complaining that there are no new kubricks coming from Medicom  ;)

I can deal with the re-release. It's obviously it's part of their m.o now and isn't the line better alive (even if on life support) than dead. Medicom's been doing the repaint thing for years, the 5 packs don't exist anymore and it's now down to the 2 packs ie Han/Luke, R2/3PO, Wicket/Paploo.

edit: I don't own the first version so I had to remind myself just how similar or different they are from each other.





Not just the mouth but the eyes and probably a change in robes. Was the original's robes cloth or paper like, it's hard to tell? It might just be the fact that they're prototypes and not the final product.

How Ironic.   I paid $100 for the original a few weeks back and it just arrived in the mail today.  I'll have to pop it open and check it out tonight.  I wonder what they're going to end up charging for this....

About $40 according to their site. My guess it'll still be a $100+ once it hit the market.

With this being the year of the Phantom Menace release, it makes some sense. But it would have made a lot more sense in January or February.

Nute Gunray would have been a nice piece to get from Episode 1, and maybe padme tatooine. There's not much from that movie that I would feel need to be done in kubrick form- Maybe a head-swap so you can get Anakin without the racing goggles.

I would have liked that...  I've been thinking about a mini-diorama with Qui-Gon, Young Ani and the Maul/Speeder Bearing down on them.

I think TPM is my least favorite movie, but I can find 6 figs I'd like to see Kubricked:

- Tatooine Padme
- Captain Panaka
- Nute Gunray
- Gungan Warrior or Tarpals
- Padawan Obi-Wan
- Anakin Slave with Pit Droid

That would make for a great series! Throw in a Wald and/or Valorum chase and we've got a winner.  :P

I thought about him too, though he's a tricky sculpt with the wings and not really one of my favorite characters.  I'd definitely take him over a repack or as a chase though!

I love the reissues, keeps the prices down.  I'm very glad I didnt open that box.
