The Disney Store is proud to introduce the Star Wars Toybox range of action figures, bringing adventures to life with characters from across The Walt Disney Company.

As most readers probably know or assume by now, we’re big fans of Disney’s Star Wars Toybox line. With each successive release and focusing on George Lucas’ Star Wars, the line has released hit after hit making it one of the greatest sub-lines of artistic action figures in recent memory. Yes, the line isn’t for everyone. If you didn’t grow up with Star Wars Infinity or are a fan of animated takes on classic Star Wars characters, there are many other collectibles for you to support. But for the smaller collective that does appreciate the animated line, Disney’s Star Wars Toybox takes this format to greater heights. Besides Hasbro’s earliest The Clone Wars line, where else can you find a whole line of super-articulated Star Wars figures in animated form? Averaging 26 points of articulation each, the figures in the Star Wars Toybox line show how much technology and art are seamless. Disney weaves them together to develop a gorgeous line such as this.

Despite our affinity for the Star Wars Toybox line, we have to admit that one figure has set our opinions of the line a little backward. Darth Maul didn’t meet or exceed our expectations. And, in our opinion, it’s probably the worst figure produced for the Star Wars Toybox line to date. The figure is noticeably shorter than most other characters in the line. Also, the figure’s legs are noticeably short to the point of looking dwarf-ish. Darth Maul’s outfit’s animated take is pretty decent, but things fall apart with the action figure’s head sculpt. It’s much too square and long, and the features, while similar to Darth Maul, don’t fairly represent the character we see on-screen. It’s almost as if you could say that the Darth Maul Star Wars Toybox figure is a stylistic interpretation of an animated take on the character. That’s too much meta for us to process in our eyes, and therefore we have to say that Darth Maul isn’t a good action figure.

Like most figures in the Star Wars Toybox line, Darth Maul comes loaded with 26 points of articulation. No one can take away from this line the high level of articulation these figures receive. The articulation is premium as well. The ball-jointed movement is smooth and functional and allows you to pose Darth Maul in a multitude of ways. Included with Darth Maul is a double-bladed lightsaber that breaks down into two halves. This “half” feature is fairly standard with all Darth Maul action figures nowadays. While it’s not screen-accurate to pose the figure with a halve in each hand, it does offer the neatest poses available. With a little creativity, you can get Darth Maul into inspiring poses, and the figure looks excellent no matter how you decide to pose it. Darth Maul retails for $14.99 and is exclusive to Disney Stores or Shop Disney online. It’s excellent getting the main characters like this, but we also need other characters from the films to complete the scenes.
