    Here are some pics of Sideshow's 1:1 Maul bust.

    I'll try and take better pics of it later this weekend. The sculpt is outrageous. I expected a little more from the paint job but that's only because Jeff Camp and Thad Rhodes have me spoiled. :)

    How does the eyes look in person? Are they fake or painted?

    I just got mine in today as well.. Thought I'd take a look here to see if anyone had any opinions yet.. I agree.. The sculpt is great, but I'm not thrilled with the eyes.. They're painted and would have made the bust so much nicer if they were done a little better.. Wish there was a way to get some glass eyes in there..

    but other then that, I love it.. I'm considering putting it on a mannequin and going all out with him :)

    I have to agree with Tension113 on the eyes - they leave a *lot* to be desired. They look a little better in person then they do in my pics but not a whole lot better.

    Bothanspy - I got it straight from Sideshow ... $600 (Yikes.).

    Allosaur ... hopefully I'll have pics of Greedo soon. Hehe. :)

    Looks pretty darn nice. Except for the eyes. But for a talented painter, I'm sure they could be touched up and much improved. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Nice, he looks really good. I figured the eyes would not be as good as the proto.

    I still think it's great though.

    Nice collection, please post more pics.

    Congrats Simmon and Tenison. Personally, I think the eyes are 95% spot on. I got mine yesterday, and I absolutely love it.

    Congrats guys on the great score.

    I agree, the eyes look a little off. Other than that, its a beauty.

    Does the bust comes with the hood?

    Yes, it does but it comes seperately and I was in a rush when I took these pics so I didn't take it out of the bag for display.

    Since I'm in the process of moving I had to throw this sucker into storage this morning. Maybe Mini-Rock could take some pics with the hood on?

    Mine showed up today.

    This is a very NICE piece.

    Here are the pics, some with hood. I really love it both ways but will probably leave the hood on.

    Thanks for posting pics with the hood on Gru. I'll be adding the hood to mine once I receive the acrylic case for it. Great pics all around guys. :) :thumbsup

    I noticed on the close-up pics that his tatoos are "outlined" recessed into the sculpt to help in painting.

    I think if Sideshow just made some tatoo painting templates (along with some glass eyes), it would help to make the bust more realistic.

    Love to pick one up if the price dropps a little.

    I like the "hood-up" look better.

    Sideshow absolutely nailed the sculpt on this piece. It looks spot-on perfect IMHO. I only have 2 small issues with it: the eyes and teeth. The eyes on the prototype looked much better than the final production piece as they were very bloodshot making them closer in appearance to Maul's actual eyes in reference photos. Also, the bust's teeth don't have the same rotted look to them that Maul's actual teeth had. They look a little big and have have too much white showing when they should have more of a decayed appearance. This is just nit-picking as I think the overall piece is great. Good job, SS. :thumbsup
