Unfortunately, almost none of those joints matters when he has the hooded robe on, because it restricts movement a lot. He can only look down, too.
"Don't move!" "Couldn't if I tried"
He can get on one knee, but not a lot more.
"Sheikie baby new name the Darth Go Fuck Yourself"
But take off the robe, and the story changes.
"Hulk Hogan called. He'll see you in hell."
The saber even plugs into his belt, which is a nice touch. The trinoculars do not.
The scale is better than I expected. Ray Park is a short man, and he looks it relative to Boba Fett. Boba also clearly looks like a man wearing bulky armor and a helmet relative to the Sith Lord's size.
He fits in decently with similar 6" figures too.
If you're a Maul fan and don't want to go to the Hot Toys high-end, this is pretty much the best one to date, and certainly the best in this scale. While some variance between heads would be nice, the detail is dead-on and you really can't complain too much. As for the Sith Probes - I'd expect they may be a lure with a Sith Speeder down the line, since it's one vehicle that can be made for this scale without breaking the bank.
