Curious, does anyone have any side by side pictures of the GG international Darth Maul & premium format Maul?

I have the GG, and it's an AWESOME piece, one of their best. But, I'm still so impressed with SS PF line (Ever since I got my first PF, EX Anakin, about a year ago. I still can't put him away or stop looking at him, as well as my other three PF) I've been debating on trading up the GG Maul for the SS, it's a hard decision (I don't have the cash right now, so in a way it's easy http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif) GG's statue is beautifully done, the likeness is spot on and the pose intimidating, is it worth it? Is SS's just as good, better or not?

Any hep here would be hot, thanks! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Both http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I know that is the easy answer but I really do think they have a different appeal. The GG statues (US and Intl) have that quiet, menacing look to them. The SSC PF is more action oriented and looks like he is about to open and a can of whoop-a** on someone.

Although, the expression on the PF is not quite as feral as I think Parks made him in the movie, it is still a great representation of Maul.

If you can swing both I would as they are different representations of a great character.

If you can't I would probably go for the PF, as the line itself is just brilliant.

I actually prefer the koto maul over all of them. I will try and post some pics of the SS & GG versions side by side later today unless someone beats me to it.

Cool, thanks. If you don't mind could you post some pics of the koto as well?

I wish I could have both the GG and SS. This is something I've been thinking about for a while. I'm totally hooked on PF's! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif I've also been debating on strictly collecting on SS's PF line and GG mini busts, for space and money reasons, my two favorite lines to collect. Which is hard to do, I like too many different things, especially when SS throws out their diorama, and now legendary scale busts, at us. It's hard! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Seconded. I own all three and the Koto Maul is by far the best. The PF Maul is definitely worth getting though especially as it's one of the cheaper PFs to pick up.

I also highly recommend the Koto Maul. This would really compliment your GG statue well as the scale is close and the Koto is such a great action pose.

Koto Maul has the most natural action pose,
GG Maul is the best likeness
SS Maul is the most impressive in scale and presentation, but upon lingering inspection the pose appears awkward (like it's Trying to look like a fight stance - but doesn't have any training)...

I'm with you, Tusken. There's just something about having the real costume and a great pose, not too over the top and not too stagnant. The Koto pose is a bit too much IMO.

I too, am partial to the SSC PF. It's the perfect blend of attitude that Maul has. The rest are either show him too relaxed, or as the case with the one in the middle, very intense. The PF is just somewhere in the middle. perfect

I like the Kotobukiya version, looks great in action. I also like the Attakus version, he is so calm before the storm begins...

WOW! Have a Maul collection! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/ooo.gif

Very impressive, they're all really cool looking. (except the animated one, I just can't get into that line) I thought seeing them together would make my decision easier, it just got harder. Now I want them ALL! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Thanks for taking the time and posting the pics. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif
