Darth Maul is ready to strike. Fortunately, he’s only 4 inches tall and made of 3 ounces of molded plastic. The figurine alone is enough to grab fans’ attention. But under Darth Maul’s sand-colored base is a computer chip. Place him on a pad in front of a video game console and – presto – lights, ash, sparks fly and the plastic action figure is transformed into a digital character in a video game, ready to set off on an adventure inside the screen.
