We’re excited to announce this upcoming Sideshow Premium Format figure, set to be rendered in 26 inches of precision and detail. The craftsmanship on these types of creations is nothing short of astounding, the result of collaborative work across a spectrum of artisans. This Lord of the Sith is no different. Styled with his trademark helmet-mask and iconic black cape, he is perfected to look just as he is in the film Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
You can re-construct one of the most nail-bitingly significant duels in film history as Darth Vader is poised mid-step, descending the steps of his figure base reminiscent of the Death Star. Naturally, he carries his LED light-up blood-red lightsaber, ready to face his nemesis in a battle of galactic proportions for the Empire.
Display this work of art, available for pre-order now for delivery in the second half of 2016, next to Sideshow’s Boba Fett Premium Format Figure. It’s sure to become the focus piece of any Star Wars collection!
Darth Malgus, Great Galactic War Sith Lord, was born Veradun before he became a definitive instrument of the Dark Side. As he was raised by his adoptive father on the planet Dromund Kaas, he was trained in the ways of the Sith, which would prove ominous harbingers of what was to come for him. Later on, he would come to be recognized for his ever-present respirator, a necessity after he was brutally wounded during the fatal battle on Alderaan. A fierce and ruthless warrior with a command of several alien languages, Malgus believed he was born to fight for the Sith Empire, through which his life’s purpose was realized.
“He’s definitely not a hero, and he’s not an anti-hero,” Paul S. Kamp, developer of Malgus for The Old Republic: Deceived, has said about the Sith’s persona. “My goal was to create a character that readers can respect but still abhor. I very much enjoy writing characters who live in a moral twilight.” Add this enigmatic fighter, pictured below, along with fellow new release Starkiller Galen Marek, to your collection today! They stand 3.75 inches tall and are perfect for re-creating true-to-scale battle scenes.
Darth Malgus killed his own best friend in order to free himself from the shackles of emotion. It’s hard to get more ruthless than that.
