From Gentle Giant Ltd:
MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU!
When you can't be there in person, send a hologram! This summer, Darth Maul beams a remote transmission to collectors as the newest mini-bust in Gentle Giant Ltd's Star Wars line. Measuring approximately 7 inches tall, this 1/6 scale mini-bust depicts Maul as he appears in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and is cast in translucent blue resin to simulate the hologram's effect. Limited to only 500 pieces, it comes packaged in a full-color box with a certificate of authenticity and will ship to customers this summer. A GentleGiantLtd.com exclusive!

This will be the second Darth Maul Mini Bust to be released as a hologram with the first being the Holographic Darth Maul - 2008 Star Wars The Exhibition Brussels Mini Bust
which was also electronic. Like the 2008 release did with the original Darth Maul Mini Bust from The Phantom Menace
, this new Mini Bust is using the same mold as the new Darth Maul (Crimson Dawn) Mini Bust
from Solo: A Star Wars Story
that is currently still available for Pre-Order direct from Gentle Giant Ltd. and scheduled for release later this year. With just 500 pieces to go around, this one shouldn't last long. Additionally, we’ve learned that they plan to make this an annual thing, so Star Wars
Day just got that much more awesome!
