NY toy fair exclusive sets

Darth Maul PromoIt seems that visitors to the LEGO stand were given a couple of freebies, including this fantastic Darth Maul. Let's hope he appears in a set sometime soon!

Via FBTB.

Update: The guys at FBTB have done a great job photographing every little detail of every summer set and are uploading them to flickr. At last the photos we've been waiting for -- Thanks Ace!

Somewhere, Andy and Dave are cursing. ;o)

They also had a pic of a promotional giveaway which included Iron Man and Cap. The Iron Man figure did not have the monstrous helmet. Maybe the helmet is gonzo?

The Iron Man and Captain America minifigs are selling for $200 on eBay :O

I'm hoping that they give these out at Comic Con.

Because I want them so badly and I don't work in the toy industry.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I want that chest and arms! lol

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

When was he ever shirtless in the movies??

Gravatar

@Legolover9531

Good luck bidding because that 6 day listing is already over $100........ o_O

Gravatar
By in United States,

^ Yea I just checked... wow... Interesting that its a different Iron Man though... which one will we actually see in the sets?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I freakin want this.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Jonbuddy @ Legolover9531: Yeah, I believe that is either Darth Maul in 'training' outfit, or the Darth Maul 'aftermath' outfit. I'm assuming that since the Clone Wars is more focused on him, that this is the aftermath version (He apparently survived the 50 foot fall and his legs being sliced off...) But isn't he supposed to have robot legs?

Gravatar
By in United States,

My colleague is at NY Toy Fair and nothing like this was given to her at her scheduled appointment. WTH!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@sarlacc98 I don't think he was ever shirtless in the movies. It is probably just a reference to him being a hot actor, and certain people would want to see him shirtless.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It might be him in training in Episode 2.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's Darth Maul after Episode I. They have Star Wars graphic novels and Maul does survive the fall. He looks just like this minifig, shirtless but has robotic legs.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Zackula oh ok I guess that makes sense. Just a little though. XD

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Nightshroud99 Now $122.50, but the last bid was almost 3 hours ago.

Gravatar
By in United States,

MAN! this is set. an awesome figure! Hope they sell it in a set. @sarlacc98 and @zackula clearly it's for his upcoming return from the dead in The Clone Wars tv series.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would really like to have this and im an episode 1 fan

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I wonder what that listing will be up to in 6 days!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I have a feeling that we'll see that Darth Maul polybag in some other promotions this year.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

@atkinsar hope is a good choice in thar particular case :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Who would want to spend over $200 on 2 figures?
Which will only be available in a couple of months time and less expensive, the madness in peoples passion for having a complete set!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Amazing! I wish I got that freebie.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^ Agreed. The insanity of completists... ;-)

//slowly sticks his chrome gold C3PO in his pocket so no one notices...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

hey, how much will this be going on ebay for?????
UK price?

Gravatar
By in United States,

^ It doesn't count unless someone actually pays for it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ah man I hate it when they do this. They make a awesome minifigure and the sellers on ebay/amazon think they have the right to charge crazy prices, so it ends up impossible to get. Hopefully TRU will give these out of something. (or if they give it out in a store in the UK and then the price goes down on amazon/ebay) I think its supossed to be Darth maul with his shirt off.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The minifgs just can't get any better!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Folks, calm down. This Darth Maul poly bag reeks of something soon to be released in a "get a free Darth Maul figure with your $50 lego purchase" If your buying this for $200 on ebay... you're a chump! Plan and simple. You could pick up a gold c-3po and chrome Vader for that.

This thing is likely to be release in some quantity very soon that will, at a minimum, put its ebay price at <$30

The sleepy head promotion baggie with the two Marvel mini figs which are number to 125... that is a different story.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Oh man what I would give for one of these being such a huge Darth Maul fan! I hope he'll be released in a set at some point!

Gravatar
By in United States,

ok for all the non-star wars fans that collect star wars legos.....yes he is Shirtless, underneath all the nice crispy black sith robes he sports he is tattooed fully from toe to head, in red and black tribal designs. he appeared in the comics, in a training scene in a prequal ep 1 story, and a story after Ep1, where he tracks Obi Wan to tatooine, and he fights with Owen Lars...in this instance his horns are much larger and he has double joined robot legs,and a new saber.....
he never appeared in the movie shirtless, so its obviously Expanded Universe...

By in United Kingdom,

@voypro, I totally agree with you, the telling sign is the way Darth Maul is packaged as a proper polybag. The ironman and cap America are the true exclusives here.
