LEGO Star Wars Darth Malgus makeover!

in LEGO Star Wars

One of the LEGO Star Wars sets released this summer is the #9500 LEGO Star Wars Fury Class Interceptor, already available at some locations. You can read more about the Interceptor in the LEGO Star Wars section, but here is the box-art image as a reminder:

The ship itself is quite all-right with an opening cockpit, folding control panel, folding wings, flick missiles and opening rear hull with space for two minifigs. Here are some images from Brickipedia to show some of the details (click image for larger views on Brickipedia):

However what is really unique about this LEGO Star Wars set is the minifigures included; Darth Malgus and two Sith Troopers. According to many LEGO fans these are some of the most gorgeous Star Wars minifigures LEGO ever designed. Just take a look:

And here are some detailed pictures of both Darth Malgus, and the Sith Troopers (images by Flickr member ExoBrick):

Darth Malgus, in particular – with printing on both front and back of his torso, legs, and armor-piece – is a real beauty. Even the head-printing is nice, given the fact that Malgus is still an ugly Sith Lord! 🙄

And here is another interesting image from ExoBrick, where he uses various official and custom LEGO heads to match up with the Darth Malgus armor:

From top to bottom and left to right the heads used are:  Bane (#6860 LEGO Super Heroes – The Batcave), Deadpool (#6866 LEGO Super Heroes – Wolverine’s Chopper), a custom BoneSaw head from eclipseGrafx, Cad Bane (#8128 LEGO Star Wars Cad Bane’s Speeder), custom Iron Man head by Christo, Nute Gunray (#9494 LEGO Star Wars – Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor), custom head with balaclava by eclipseGrafx, Darth Sidious/Emperor Palpatine (#10188 LEGO Star Wars – Death Star), and Imperial Pilot (#7915 LEGO Star Wars V-Wing Starfighter).

As you can see this LEGO Star Wars armor piece has a lot of usage and looks great with lots of different combos for evil/alien/space characters. Which one is your favorite? Share your thoughts below! 😉

I must sound like an idiot but what is this set actually off? and who the hell is darth Malgus?

Pyhor, Darth Malgus is from the expanded Star Wars universe. You can read about him on Wookipedia:

Both the Republic Striker and the sith Fury and their minifigs are from the Star Wars the Old Republic video game. It’s an online game like World of Warcraft and is set in the pre history thousands of years before the Star Wars movies.

Here are the 3 great intro movies that shows off Darth Malgus, Shatelle Shan, the Republic Trooper and some looks at the Sith Fury. (plus a few other characters and classes). This is all three trailers combined in one video. Well worth the view.

Thanks, Andy!

Admin, how do you find a post every day???


admin June 7, 2012 at 1:27 PM

Nace, what do you mean? I’m a LEGO fan! I can talk about this stuff all day! I could write so much more each day! I just don’t have the time. You should see my desk! I have over a hundred sticky notes above my computer with ideas to write about! When I get up in the morning I write one post for the following day, then have to work, train for my next rank in martial arts, and do other stuff, but I check comments a couple of times a day. I’m also a member of pretty much every LEGO forum, so I know when something is coming down the pipes. 😉
