Ok our friends at galactic hunter have a NYCC report up on a lot of different toy lines. Even though hasbro has no official presence at newyork comic-con this year, a hasbro employee dropped the news to someone from GH that spider Darth maul will be coming as an exclusive

Link to GH article. Hasbro info is toward end of article
Also talks about new naboo star fighter only being online and canceled for stores but that's for another thread.

So since he's too big for the basic figure line, how would everyone like to see Spider Maul released?

Since it's obviously going to be larger than a regular figure, why not do another e-tailer exclusive??

I think it will be a TRU exclusive because their Attack On Coronet (I think thats what its called) set is roughly the same size. Or target because they already released the Darth Maul Returns Pack.

I bet Kmart should get it. Because this is the 1st year they did good on their exclusive figures and vehicle. They have a fighting chance now.

I can't say I disagree, but it stinks that my nearest Kmart is one and a half hours away.  :fumingmad:

this would be much easier to get if it was offered as a mail away figure

they could run the promotion like all the others
5 Proof of Purchase and $7 for shipping

the POPs requirement might help move some of the dusty product off the pegs, which will help clear the way for new stuff to be delivered to the stores

Slobba's idea is the one that should happen.
Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

Yeah, I think the Maul mail-away is a fantastic idea! Hopefully that's what will happen.

While a mail away is a cool idea, the hasbro guy indicated it would be an exclusive, which seems to suggest you would have to purchase it from said exclusive retailer.
