Kotaku Claims The Greatest Sith Warrior In The Old Republic Is Even Scarier Up CloseSaturday, October 12, 2013
Mike Fahey of Kotaku recently got his hands on the Sideshow Collectibles Darth Malgus Premium Format™ Figure. Here’s an excerpt from his reaction to the piece!
Darth Malgus is a magnificent figure in the extended history of the Star Wars universe, introducing a new generation of fans to the franchise and showing the MMO crowd that being evil has its rewards.Now that I’ve got him standing 20 inches high on my desk in the form of Sideshow Collectibles’ Darth Malgus Premium Format Figure, he might be my favorite Sith Lord ever.
What makes Malgus so great is the fact that he is a warrior, through and through. He’s freaking amazing. Just look at Sideshow’s version of him.
Darth Malgus is wired for glow. An AC adapter plugs into his base. His foot, attaching to the base, has an circular power connector in it, as does his neck and the blade of his lightsaber.
The metal plating on his boots is worn and scratched from countless battles. The fine cloth of his cloak, with its handy wire-rimmed hood is perfect for posing.
And there’s that face again. Easily my second-favorite feature of the figure. The hood falls just right, the veins, wrinkles and other discolorations are just perfect.
What’s my first-favorite feature? His friendly hand.
See? Maybe he really just wants to be our friend, after all. Aw, he has a spoon.
He deserves a spectacular figure, and Sideshow’s Darth Malgus Premium Format Figure is 20 inches of just rewards. It captures his power, his determination, and his signature glow, while leaving his hand open to interpretation. You know, for the kids.
Sideshow Collectibles’ Premium Format™ Darth Malgus is limited to 1,000 pieces, and available for pre-order now. [Darth Malgus Premium Format Figure]
