here is my Darth Maul Mythos statue. its #230 of 2500.
love the sculpt. my paint apps came out ok as far as not missing any paint.
its fairly clean. the eyes could have been better placed. but they are small as hell. so not so noticeable. and not too googely.
the body does seem to be a bit dusty. when comparing it to the head. the head as you can see is more shiny. i tried wiping the body down with just a dry cloth. it seemed to help a little . but nothing that helped it match the head. ill have to wait and leave it out on display in the open for while for the head to start to look like the body..lol
its does bother me a little. but i can live with it i guess.
but the one thing about this piece that really irritates me (and i will bring it to SS attention) is the way the hands go on. the right hand doesn't bother me as much as the left. but i cannot for the life of me get the damn left hand to stay on becasue instead of magnets they used metal rods. its really pissing me off. so i used a small piece of clean clay to hold the hand on while i took photos. i tried like hell to get that thing to stay on by itself. i twisted and pushed several times over. but it just wont stay on by itself. even without the saber blades on.
i can agree with everyone who has said in other forums that they should have used magnets in them. PFS not to. another thing i noticed was that the stick and the saber are not so straight or as straight as i would like to see them. the stick doesn't bother as much becasue its supposed to be a piece of wood. but as far as the saber goes. i feel the saber should be perfectly straight. when i put the blades on they are all out of alignment. i can get them to point where they look OK. but not as straight as i would like for them to be or how they should be. the portraits look incredible along with the over all sculpt of this piece. my only critique would be his upper lip on the calm looking portrait. his upper lip is red when it should be black. so ill just paint it black like it should be on his calm face. and i also would have liked to have see the base painted black like Darth Vader's is rather than gold. ill more than likely have it painted to match Vader's. but dont get me wrong. this line is holding up to the hype so far with this first installment. other than what i have said about the things that are wrong i really love this piece.
im definitely going to be getting the rest of the line and the others that will follow after the first 5 are released.
here are some photos i took really quick...enjoy.

I have the Mythos Vader and I like the overall look of it even with the orange. Its the artist interpretation and the priduction piece is not too far of from the original artist one. Its still a mix-up of several Vaders, but a nice one
