Shirtless Darth Maul available in Smyths, UK and IE

Posted by ,
Darth Maul

I received several emails today about this offer and there's chatter in the forum as well: Buy any Star Wars set and get Shirtless Darth Maul free in both UK and Ireland branches of Smyths toy stores. There's no mention of this on their website, but there wasn't last year when they had a similar offer for white Boba Fetts.

This should bring the eBay and BrickLink prices down a bit...

I called this when it first was released. I would not be surprised to see it release in the US soon as well.

Anyone interested in sending a small batch to Canada? We are looking for some freebies to offer in our summer building contest for our store. I have grabbed batches of chrome stormies etc, but was hoping someone who gathered a batch - say 5-10 would be interested in a simple transaction??

Saw some of these appear on eBay the other day for £5. They either sold very quickly or were taken down from sale withn the hour!

Yippee! With all these promotions lately, this month should be renamed Minifigure May! :)

Of course not the us. Oh well, ill get my hands on a bunch of these eventually.

#$@! I want this soooooooooo bad! Why can't the USA get this and why does the UK get all the good crap. Oh well at least this means that it will be aviable on Amazon soon.(hopefully for a good price)

^The USA actually got it first, though admittedly in low quantities.

Meanwhile - as always - Australia gets nothing. Grrrrrr.

Arg, just bought two of them a few days ago on BrickLink. Oh well.

Where's the nearest smyths store to Stowmarket?

I take it you have to buy it from the store and not online then.

Gravatar
By in Finland,

I hope they start online as I would like one too. :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Roll on 11am :) really hope they have some left.

When they did the white bobba deal i asked if i could buy a couple extra and asked how much.. the guy said yeah i`ll just check the price through the scanner which came up as £0.00 "oh there free then" he said and put 4 in my bag :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

To buy individually?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This is good for those who didn't manage to pick it up at Legoland, but the thing I don't like about Smyths is that their actual stores are scarce (as in they don't have many stores here)! Hopefully this offer will be online, then I'll get that £10 Tie Defender.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

£10 TIE defender been OOS online for months

Just picked up the deathstar planet set for £8.99 & 2 Darth Mauls :)

Just picked up two from Llandudno. My son bought one for me and I went 5 mins later and the checkout people had to be reminded / hinted both times 'isn't there a free figure?'.

This is unfair, why does the UK get the Olympic minifigures, the newspaper promotions and this awesome shirtless darth maul? Why can't the US get it for a reasonable price instead of paying outrages prices on ebay/amazon. Does anyone know if there is a chance that maybe TRU will give these out?

Gravatar
By in United States,

^Why do we get LOTR first? Different countries get different things.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It's not really unfair as the only unique thing we are getting are the Olympic minifigures. The other two are promotions that just happen to fall in the same week and could happen anywhere.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

They had NO idea what I was talking about in eastbourne smyths when I asked about this!

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^@Legolas1 I don't care if we get it first. It doesn't matter if we get it first , what really matters is if we get and as long as it comes. (like Yoda says "Patience you must learn") But USA has not had an oportunity to get this (except the NY toy fair, but only for if your near NY) so thats why this is unfair.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I picked up 4 in the Bury store. Looked like they had about 10 left

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

and it is unfair that Lego seem to think $ is the same as £, so when you are paying $75 for something we are paying £75 for, think about it and buy a shirtless darth maul with the difference.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Does any one know how many each store got? & while we're talking numbers how many Hulk, tc-14 & maul were made?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

No offence to people overseas,but hate this whining about what we and can't get. Olympic figures for example are based on team GB and is located in London 2012 so that's the sensible thing to do,why would American by team GB figures in shops over there? They want American stuff,I wouldn't by NBA or NFL figures in our country. Number 2 everything in states is way cheaper,I would rather have cheaper items then just freebies with the papers. Oh yeah Denmark is in Europe and so is England. Paper sales are huge in England,can't say I even look twice at a paper in USA. Whilst The Sun are billionaires and pay for the rights for these promotions.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@jengafett - That is probably because there is no Eastbourne Smyths.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^@ dashofdashing... totally agree with what you are saying with regard to the whining as they dont complain about getting stuff much earlier than us. Having to pay less for the same items and having to spend less to get the promotions on lego.com. Also there is so much more choice on the usa lego site shop than the uk version.

By in United Kingdom,

The US got the batman jetski (newspaper promo) before us. They had it in TRU for $5 / £3.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^^^Me too. And I'm overseas!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@CapnRex101
your right, there is no smyths in eastbourne. I was thinking of whsmiths because of all the promotions and stuff. and probably because I have never heard of smyths before.
WHY would smyths not show this on there website, they would attract a lot more people!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ Probably because they know they will attract the eBay scalpers.

By in United Kingdom,

People who are whinging about the $/£, you may think that the average person in the States earns more than here, but they don't! So they earn the same as us, eg, £20000 here, $20000 there, so basically they are paying the same on Lego...

By in United Kingdom,

The nearest Smyths to the west of London is Barnet :(

By in United Kingdom,

Smyths in Salisbury is giving away shirtless Darth Maul with any star wars lego purchase. Got one this morning.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Got mine in Bury Smyths today. The Woman on the till said they had "hundreds" left - so no need to panic.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Has anyone noticed this has not been for sale on Amazon? It seems to be common on ebay but not Amazon.

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

Got a couple in Smyths Dundalk Ireland, Nice to get a good offer this side of the water.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I picked up one yesterday from their store in Charlton. They were being strict on one per purchase and per household. I don't think that they had many left.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Picked up two yesterday at the Charlton store. Seem to be quite a few left. Again, strict on one per person. Wicked figure, totally worth going there.
