Darth Maul Returns! LEGO 75383 Sith Infiltrator launching in May 2024 (plus Saw Gerrera Minifigure!)

Attention Darth Maul fans – LEGO are releasing a new Sith Infiltrator in May 2024! Nearly a decade has passed since the last Sith Infiltrator was released in 2015, and it makes perfect sense to remake the it this year, as 2024 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Phantom Menace.

The 75383 Sith Infiltrator is set to launch on May 1, 2024 for $69.99, featuring 640 pieces and 4 minifigures (including a bonus 25th Anniversary minifigure, but more on him below).

*Update – The Sith Infiltrator can now be seen on LEGO.com >>

Darth Maul’s Sith Infiltrator (also called the Scimitar for the nerds out there) was a heavily-modified Star Courier class ship with ample upgrades for the Sith Lord, including six laser cannons, spy and surveillance gear, interrogator droids, room for his speedy FC-20 Speeder Bike, and even a cloaking device!

Box art for the back of the Sith Infiltrator has released early! Take a look:

I was originally wrong about the speeder bike, we are getting one! Yes!

Star Wars equivalent of a Harley Davidson no doubt…

First impression – the ship itself looks amazing. I’m gradually getting used to the slightly downscaled models LEGO has started to make in recent years. However, I’m a little disappointed in the lower minifigure count (I originally thought it would have at least 5 figures). $70 should warrant a few more classic Episode 1 figures here…

For comparison, here’s the 2015 version of the ship – notice more minifigures + a larger overall ship:

Minifigures

Oooohh boy, I was originally super pumped for this minifigure lineup, but since seeing the box leak I am a little disappointed we’re not also getting Captain Panaka or a Young Padmé Amidala (or even a Watto!). Would have been a great chance to include some of the rarer Episode 1 figures that wouldn’t normally be in a set… However, the 4 confirmed minifigures look to be all newly designed, and include:

A few things to mention – I am actually shocked that we’re not getting a cloak and hood for Maul. I don’t understand why LEGO wouldn’t include that. Maul is literally wearing his cloak on all the Speeder Bike scenes in the movie… come on LEGO!

(Also, I can’t believe it’s been 25 years and LEGO still haven’t figured out how to give Maul a proper double-bladed lightsaber hilt…)

Also, while the detailing and printing on the special Saw Gerrera Anniversary figure looks fantastic, I’m struggling to get used to the bright green color. Source material definitely shows a more muted, darker color for Saw’s outfit. Thoughts? (Cool shoulder pad piece though).

Stellar figure, just so long as you can look past the bright green… 🫣

Robe printing looks amazing, spot-on for Episode I era Maul as I was hoping. As I already mentioned above, I’m a little confused why there isn’t a black cloth cloak and at least the option of a hood included, but perhaps the detailed robe printing is meant to also act as the cloak. Still, a big black cloak is what makes Maul so iconic and mysterious, especially in the main scene this set is depicting (Maul vs Qui-Gon in the desert), so a very confusing choice by LEGO to omit that detail.
My other concern is the lack of pupils – this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this. Last year’s Ahsoka and Palpatine minifigures were also missing their pupils. Curious design choice.
However, the rest of the minifigure is stellar. Excited for this!

Lego 75383 Sith Infiltrator Qui-Gon Jinn minifigure

Prediction: the Qui-Gon figure is going to be the sleeper stand-out figure on this set. It’s been seven years since we’ve had an updated Gui-Gon, so I’m very excited to get my hands on the new and improved Gui-Gon (mainly his hairpiece, hah).
Under the poncho, the robe printing on the torso and legs is really stellar – phenomenal Jedi look with the printing and attention to detail here by LEGO. 👏

Child Anakin looks fine, no issues there. Looks to be very similar to the Anakin from the 2019 Anakin’s Podracer (Amazon / eBay links), except with updated faceprinting and hairpiece.

Lego Saw Gerrera

Thankfully Saw’s outfit looks darker in real life, definitely not as bright green as the box render. Phew! Stunning attention to detail here, really a fantastic job by LEGO for this special 25th Anniversary character. (Peep that awesome printed back cape!)

Also, props to LEGO for including Qui-Gon’s cool poncho that he wears when first encountering Maul in then Tatooine desert on the outskirts of Mos Espa:

The previous most recent version of Darth Maul before this was from the 2021 ‘Duel on Mandalore’ set (Amazon / eBay), and honestly it was a stellar figure already (sans the printed mechanical legs). But obviously this 2024 Maul has an Episode I era outfit with black robes.

(FYI – the 2024 LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary comes with an exclusive minifigure. Guess who made the lineup this year? That’s correct, also our favorite dual-bladed lightsaber wielding Sith Lord. Except, the figure in the book is a recreation of the classic version of Maul from 1999, with a 25th anniversary logo on his back.)

Lego 75383 Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator probe droids and blasters
Nifty storage area for the 3 probe droids, with a launching mechanism. Nice touch! Also includes spring-loaded missiles – no surprise there.
Lego 75383 Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator speeder and cockpit
Sweet looking cockpit design – just room for 1 figure obviously. Maul has to sit on the Speeder in the cockpit, which is a little meh though. No separate storage area for the bike unfortunately.

Overall, this 2024 version seems to be a more downscaled version of the Infiltrator than we’ve been accustomed to seeing. (If you haven’t noticed, LEGO has been gradually reducing the size of their playscale versions in the sub-$100 ship lineup in recent years). However, this 2024 version displays really well – the detailing and build is incredibly accurate to what we see on screen.

Obviously there’s not too much of an interior, but what’s included does look good. Maul’s cockpit looks very detailed, and even includes two little hooks for his lightsaber. Nice touch!

A few other features/highlights:

  • No stickers! All printed pieces, even the round cockpit lid!
  • All 4 rear wings adjust for flight vs landing.
  • 2 spring loaded missiles at the front. The triggers are kind of subtly “hidden” in the nose – super cool.
  • All 3 Probe Droids have a small storage area in the top of the ship (in front of the cockpit), and have a unique dropping function under the ship.

I’m thrilled to see a new version of Maul’s classic ship come to life, and also to get my hands on updated versions of some of my favorite Phantom Menace characters (but I WILL be putting a spare black cloak on Maul…)

At this price point and piece count, don’t expect too much of an interior beyond the accessory storage.

Though not shown in Episode 1, Darth Maul’s personal ship is equipped with an experimental stealth drive, making it a capable ambusher and the perfect ship for a Sith hoping to stay out of sight.
