Darth Maul Limited-Edition Lightsaber Available Now For Star Wars Day


Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace turns 25 later this month, so it only makes sense that Disney would celebrate this year’s edition of Star Wars Day with a line of nostalgic merch. Earlier this week, new Phantom Menace Lego sets launched, and now the Disney Store has a bunch of new collectibles, led by Darth Maul’s iconic double-sided lightsaber hilt, sold for an eye-watering $400.

Update: The limited-edition Darth Maul lightsaber is sold out, but you can save over $100 on Hasbro’s Black Series Darth Vader lightsaber at Amazon.

Darth Maul’s Legacy Lightsaber Set is limited to 7,000 units and comes with a certificate of authenticity. At the time of writing, Disney had a queue for its online shop and was limiting customers to 10 minutes of shopping before requiring them to jump back in line. Here’s the official description of the Darth Maul Legacy Lightsaber Set:

“The finely detailed reproduction of the Dathomirian’s legendary double hilt features sound effects and illuminates red when you attach two of our Lightsaber Blades, sold separately. Presented in a spectacular wooden box with Darth Maul graphics, the interior lights up red and plays Duel of the Fates when you slide open the lid.”

Needless to say, this is very much a collector’s item, and it costs a lot more than some of the other official lightsaber hilts (a bunch of them go for $160). To be fair, it is like two hilts in one, since Darth Maul wields a double-sided blade. Just note that if you want a fully functional Darth Maul lightsaber, you’ll need to buy the blade separately. The hilt is compatible with existing accessories beyond the blades, including sheaths, hilt stand, and clip.

There are some other cool Phantom Menace collectibles up for grabs, too, including a few more products with highly limited quantities. The high-end 11-inch Queen Amidala Doll is limited to 3,100 units and costs $130. You’ll receive a certificate of authenticity with your purchase.

If you can also add some Phantom Menace style to your wardrobe with the 25th anniversary hoodie, tie-dye T-Shirt, backpack, and sling bag. We’ve listed some of the highlights from the collection below.
