SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Darth Maul Hot Toys Action Figure Reveals Closer Look At Those Robotic Legs

Darth Maul made a shocking return at the end of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and now a new Hot Toys action figure provides a detailed look at the villain's updated appearance and those awesome robotic legs...

Unfortunately, Solo: A Star Wars Story's tepid performance at the box office means we're unlikely to ever see a sequel, and that pretty much closes the door on Darth Maul's return being explored. We know how his story ends thanks to Star Wars Rebels, but his role in Han Solo's origin is unclear.

Regardless, Hot Toys has now unveiled its highly detailed replica action figure featuring Maul's likeness from Solo. Not only do we get a closer look at his older appearance, but his new costume and robotic legs also receive the spotlight.

A lot of work clearly went into reimagining the classic villain from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace for his return to the big screen and it's a real shame that Lucasfilm seemingly has no intentions on elaborating on his ties to Q'ira and Han.

So, to check out these images, all you guys have to do is hit the "View List" button below!

Despite how much fans hated The Phantom Menace, Darth Maul has remained a fan-favourite villain in the Star Wars Universe and bringing him back would have led to a lot of exciting new stories.

After all, why have Maul here if he wasn't going to play into Han's origin story somewhere down the line? Solo clearly set the stage for a sequel and Maul was undoubtedly set to be part of that.

Those robotic legs are awesome, but for fans who haven't been following the various cartoons and comic books filling in Maul's history, the villain's return obviously would have been very confusing.

Disney is reportedly moving away from featuring established characters in spinoffs so unless Maul is going to pop up on Disney+, it seems as if the door is officially closed on him for the time being.

This figure is skillfully crafted based on the appearance of Darth Maul in Solo and features a newly developed head sculpt with his likeness, a tailored outfit and robe, and highly detailed robotic legs.

Maul's iconic double-bladed lightsaber comes with an LED light-up function and interchangeable lightsaber blades emulating the weapon in motion which collectors are bound to be fans of.

Finally, there's a selection of interchangeable hands for posing options, a specialized seat for Maul, and a figure base. The head sculpt here is really impressive and shows how he's aged.

For the most part, fans weren't happy with how Maul's story came to an end in Star Wars Rebels as it wasn't exactly epic! If a live-action Obi-Wan Kenobi project happens, Maul needs to return.

That's been rumoured for the Disney+ streaming service but it's been a long time since we've heard anything and it now sounds like it may have been shelved with a number of other projects.
