Welcome to DMEB2. Successor to DMEB.
DMEB-2 Maul Image of the Day

We are a group of Star Wars fans (female for the most part) with a fascination for that mysterious Dark Lord of the Sith - Darth Maul.

We don't understand it either - we simply accept.



Petition for more cinematic Maul:

Would you like to see more Darth Maul in future Star Wars features? If so, add your name to our petition.

Darth Maul Mimobot03 July 2009:


Cool New Darth Maul Stuff!:

This falls under the category of "How in the heck could we miss this??!!?!"

Mimoco recently released a new series of Star Wars USB flash drives. They've been making those cool flash drives for years... but none worth writing here about ... until NOW! On June 10th (Yeah we know it's late...) in honour of TPM's 10th Anniversary they released a Darth Maul flash drive!

The MIMOBOT line, available in 1GB to 8GB capacities, is known for exclusive preloaded digital extras that include Star Wars-themed icons, avatars, screensavers, wallpapers, and the mimoByte™ Sound Software that plays authentic Star Wars audio clips when MIMOBOT is inserted or ejected from one’s computer.

You can order directly from the Mimoco website. There are even little "Hoodie" keychain accessories for it. All too cute...


In addition there is the new Darth Maul Lego Pen. (Basically a Lego Darth Maul Mini-Fig on a pen). You can customize the top beads though, interchange them with other Sith beads - or even *gasp* Jedi beads. Darth Maul is also part of a new Magnet Set (Item #: 852551) and the Darth Maul Lego Watch is still available ( Item #: 2851193 ). So there is plenty of Darth Maul stuff out there for your collection!

DMEB-2 - 8th Birthday!:

ScottMaul at SWC2
Today is our own 8th Birthday or 8th Anniversary! Eight years ago today (June 17th 2001) the Darth Maul Estrogen Brigade 2 went live on the Internet... Where has the time gone? A lot has happened since that fateful day - two more Star Wars Prequels have been released and we have a regular series on Cartoon Network (The Clone Wars). Again there is talk of a "Live Action Series." We shall see....

Take a look at our Eighth Birthday Page - We have a couple treats for you to celebrate our special day... Some special piece artwork by Mariana Moreno that portrays pretty much how we feel about Darth Maul. (Yes... we can show it on a public page.... sheesh!!! Get your minds out of the gutter!) We also have some new DMEB-2 wallpaper to decorate your computer screen with.

Enjoy.... [ DMEB-2 8th Birthday Page ]

DMEB-1 - 10th Anniversary!:

DMEB-1 10th Anniversary

Yes... Today is the 10th Anniversary of the founding of the Original Darth Maul Estrogen Brigade! (WooHoo!!) So, less than a week after Episode I: The Phantom Menace was released in North America - Darth Maul had his own Estrogen Brigade! (And he's had it for 10 years now - in one form or another! We're not sure if that is a record or not - but it might be!).

In an interview, DarthCleo one of the founders and the creator of the DMEB-1 was asked where the idea for the DMEB came from. She stated:

A group of women on Rec.arts.SciFi.Starwars.Misc (also known as RASSM) were discussing how sexy and appealing Maul was. Someone by the name of AmidalaEp1 (yeah, the list aunt) mentioned she was looking for help in starting an Estrogen Brigade. I knew what Estrogen Brigades were, but I had never been interested in them till I saw those four words together: Darth Maul Estrogen Brigade.

Lucky for us, DarthCleo's background with computers and programming allowed the DMEB to be created. With all the Episode I craziness, the DMEB garnered attention from the press, starting with an article from the San Francisco Chronicle and continued for months. There was even a mention in Empire Magazine from England.

You can read the entire interview DarthCleo gave way back when on our DMEB-1 Page.

Star Wars Weekends at DisneyWorld:

Star Wars Weekends MaulThis weekend (May 22nd-24th) begins the Annual Star Wars Weekends Special Event at Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studio's Theme Park. And our favourite Sith - Ray Park - is one of the Guests of Honour this weekend - probably due to the 10th Anniversary of The Phantom Menace.

Fans of the Star Wars universe don't have to travel to "a galaxy far, far away" to come face to face with droids, alien creatures and many of their favorite Star Wars characters.

Younglings can hone their lightsaber skills and prepare to do battle with Darth Vader himself at the Jedi Training Academy. Prove yourself the master of trivia in contests with prize giveaways. Board a runaway Starspeeder on the Star Tours attraction, or stare in awe as visitors from Naboo, Endor and every planet between pass by in a motorcade.

In addition to all of the entertainment, there are plenty of conversations, autograph sessions and motorcades with the celebrities and creators of the Star Wars galaxy.

Hunting for a special collectible bounty? Grab a Disney's FASTPASS ticket to ensure your place in line for celebrity autographs, or find special limited-edition merchandise to add to your collection at the Tatooine Traders store and other vendors around the Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park.

Even if you can't make it out to SW Weekends... you can still begin your Sith or *cough* Jedi Training - Once you "complete" your training you can download a cool Darth Maul Wallpaper (much better than the Yoda one... trust us!) and a "Bounty Hunter" guide. Not bad for free...

EDIT: StarWars.com Just released a video (Disney Weekends #1) with information and tips for those of you attending SW Weekends - especially THIS weekend. (Yeah we know it's kinda late... ) But it does have some cool information and views of Ray and various "Darth Mauls." Worth a look.

The Phantom Menace PossterHappy 10th Anniversary TPM!!!:

Every Generation has a Legend ...

Hard to believe but it has been 10 years since the release of the first Prequel - Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace. It's been 10 years since that mysterious Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Maul, graced the silver screen with his menacing demeanour and drove legions of women into near hysteria while igniting his double-sided lightsaber!

Speaking of hysteria - it's also been 10 years since the original DMEB was started by Darth Cleo... well almost 10 years (give it a couple of days!). Remember those first heady days of Maul mania? When it seemed like the only face you saw was his? Maul was the "New Face of Evil" according to Star Wars Insider, and he was only the second one to be named "Darth" after Vader. He had some big boots to fill.

Some may have been disappointed with Episode I, but few if any of those complaints were ever aimed at the Sith - except to say he needed more screen time (to which we heartily agree!). Today, 10 years later, Darth Maul remains one of the favourite characters of the entire saga, and Ray Park has become one of the all time fan favourites to appear at any convention!

We aren't the only ones to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Phantom Menace. StarWars.com and TheForce.net are also looking back on this day. Here are some links for you to enjoy and to reminisce with:

StarWars.com: Episode I: Production Notes - An in depth look at the making and production of Episode I on the StarWars.com website. From 1999 but revamped for their updated website. Page 13: Stunts and Action is of particular interest to Maul fans.

StarWars.com: Our Ten Favourite Phantom Menace Posters: These aren't just the same old, same old! Maul is in most of them. But Number 10: The Art of Star Wars (Finnish Art Exhibit) is especially Cool!

ShadowLine: The Art of Iain McCaigShadowLine: The Art of Iain McCaig:

There is a new book coming out this October - one that will hopefully reveal something we've all been wanting to see for YEARS!!! ShadowLine: The Art of Iain McCaig which showcases the original artwork drawn by Iain McCaig over the years, including, Darth Maul. We can only hope - all of it! Darth Maul is on the cover of the book, but we don't know how much of Maul is revealed (or not) in the book. Guess we'll just have to buy it and see. It is set to be published on 01 October 2008 for $65.00 USD (or 07 October if you believe Amazon.com for $41.00 USD). A more extensive Hardcover Limited Edition is set to be published in July 2009 - but the price for that is $250.00.

Star Wars "Jaw Droppers" in SW Insider No. 103:

The latest edition of Star Wars Insider (No. 103) has a story on the "Top Ten Jaw Dropping Moments" of the Star Wars Saga. It excludes the obvious one: "Luke...I am your father." Because it is TOO obvious, but it has some other ones. Coming in at No. 6:

Darth Maul Reveals His Double-Bladed Lightsaber:

OK, so we knew Darth Maul was a Sith, just like Darth Vader, and that with his distinctive tattooed visage and his animal-like instincts he was an unusual Sith. Sure, we expected him to have a lightsaber, but how much of a shock was it, that as soon as Maul ignited his blade, another one emerged from the other end of his lightsaber handle?! Die-hard fans of the Expanded Universe may have already seen something similar in earlier comics, but for the vast majority of the audience this was dramatic never-before-seen stuff. Lightsabers were known weapons but this new variation, based on an elongated fighting staff allowed for a whole new style of lightsaber combat. That unveiling of the double-bladed lightsaber - a jaw-dropper if ever there was one - was just the preliminary one to one of Star Wars' best ever lightsaber battles.

WE LOVE: Amidala's look of panic as the doors open. This is definitely Jedi business!


Okay... we heartily agree with the assessment ... but why No. 6? We're sorry, but this rates above No.'s 5, 4 and definitely No. 3 (Leia in the Gold Bikini)???? Puhleeeze! No. 2 is debatable... and No. 1 - we'll have to see once we know what the heck it is!

The Clone Wars Movie Poster10 June 2008:


The Clone Wars - Coming to a Galaxy Near You August 15th 2008:

Another full-length Star Wars Movie? Sorta. The good news is the upcoming Clone Wars Movie, loosely based on the popular Cartoon Network Clone Wars from a couple of years ago and featuring 3-D animation this time, has many of our favourite characters in it (including some of the original voice talents). The Bad news of course is that Darth Maul isn't in it. :( We can only hope that someday Uncle George will make a movie or special featuring the Prequel era that our favourite Sith Lord lived in eh?

However, this does look like an excellent movie. You can read more about it at the Official Star Wars Clone Wars Movie site. Watch the trailers (in HD if possible) and enjoy!

Darth Maul - #11 on StarWars.com22 December 2007:


StarWars.com DataBank Top 100 Countdown:

The final instalment of the Top 100 Countdown was published in the StarWars Homing Beacon #207 (20 Dec 2007) StarWars.com. Our favourite Sith Lord was of course listed in the top 25! Number 11 to be exact ... though we should take issue with how he was listed:

11. Darth Maul. He's not half the Sith Lord he used to be.

Maul's Master, Darth Sidious was listed last week at #26, The Sith came in at #4 and Darth Vader at #3. Considering Maul's limited screen time in The Phantom Menace, and even more limited dialogue, we'd have to say this goes to show how popular this sexy Sith Lord really is! Hear that Mr. Lucas? We want more Maul!!!!
