The Phantom Menace Darth Maul on Bloodfin Speeder 705

Speed Into the Dark Side with Darth Maul’s Funko Pop! Ride

In a silent streak of crimson and black, the menacing Sith apprentice Darth Maul makes a striking entry to the Funko Pop! Rides series. To mark the 25th anniversary of “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace,” Funko unveils the Deluxe Pop! Ride #705, featuring Darth Maul on his Bloodfin Speeder, ready to execute the dark will of his master.

A Sith in Motion

With incredible attention to detail, this Funko Pop! Ride captures the fierce determination and agility of Darth Maul. Poised on his Bloodfin Speeder, Maul is depicted mid-hunt, his double-bladed lightsaber at the ready. This figure commemorates the moment Maul soared into the deserts of Tatooine, an iconic scene that showcased the Sith’s formidable presence.

Darth Maul is an enigmatic and ferocious presence in the Star Wars universe. Introduced in The Phantom Menace, he is immediately recognized by his striking red and black facial tattoos, piercing yellow eyes, and iconic double-bladed lightsaber. Trained by the sinister Darth Sidious, Maul is a Zabrak from the planet Dathomir, honed into a weapon of the Sith and an embodiment of their rage and hate.

As a Sith Lord, Maul’s combat skills are unparalleled, with acrobatic prowess and a mastery of the dark side of the Force. His character is one of few words, letting his actions speak the language of intimidation and fear. Maul’s duel with Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most memorable in the series, showcasing his lethal efficiency and relentless nature.

Maul’s arc is further explored in the animated series The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, where he survives his apparent demise, demonstrating his intense survival instincts and cunning. Driven by vengeance against the Jedi and his former master, Darth Maul’s character is deepened. This reveals a complex individual with his own code and ambitions, which often put him at odds with both the Sith and the Jedi.

Darth Maul’s role in “The Phantom Menace” is pivotal, marking the return of the Sith to the galactic stage and setting into motion events that would eventually lead to the Republic’s fall and the Empire’s rise. His legacy endures as one of the most formidable and visually distinctive villains in the “Star Wars” saga.

A Collectible of Dark Elegance

Funko fans and Star Wars collectors will appreciate this piece’s dynamic design, where motion and menace are immortalized in vinyl. The intricate tattoos on Maul’s face, the piercing yellow of his eyes, and the sleek lines of the Bloodfin Speeder converge to create a collectible that is as much a work of art as it is a tribute to the legendary villain.

As the 25th anniversary of “The Phantom Menace” approaches, the Deluxe Pop! The ride of Darth Maul on his Bloodfin Speeder is not just a collectible; it’s a piece of Star Wars history. Enhance your collection with the enduring symbol of the Sith’s relentless pursuit and power. This Funko Pop! The ride is a must-have for those who revel in the saga’s darker side and cherish the pulse-pounding moments of the prequel trilogy.
