And by that, I mean, he looks like it’s been 20 years since Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and this figure looks a little sweaty and bloated.
Don’t misunderstand– Ray Park is amazing and talented and gorgeous. But Hot Toys really went literal with this one and gave us…well…our cosplaying dad.
The costume design and artistry are incomparable, in typical Hot Toys fashion. But there’s something about this one, perhaps even just the photography, that doesn’t quite work for us.
But at least we get to have a laugh!
From Hot Toys’ Instagram:
Surprised many Star Wars fans with his appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story, audience discovered that the deadly Darth Maul has survived to build an empire of his own as the true leader of Crimson Dawn. Operating from his homeworld of Dathomir, Maul commanded the crime syndicate with the help of refined figurehead and terrifying enforcer Dryden Vos, who traversed the galaxy on his lavish yacht entertaining and brutally imposing the will of his master. After his death, Dryden’s first lieutenant Qi’ra assumed control over the territories, working closely with Maul to continue their rule.
