Based on the picture above, you might think I'm being hyperbolic about GameStop's exclusive pre-order bonus for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. I really don't think I am. Before you judge, take a look at the description for this character skin:
"In the cloning facilities of Kamino, Darth Vader created a warrior of unparalleled strength and power by combining the genetic material of Darth Maul, former apprentice of Sith Lord Darth Sidious, with his own apprentice, Starkiller."
Wait, there's more: "The resulting aberrant clone possessed traits from both warriors, but the crude fusion of two disparate Force users quickly produced physical and mental instabilities that led to the unfortunate clone’s destruction. For a brief time he struck fear into the hearts of all who faced him, even Lord Vader himself."
His name? Maulkiller. Yes, Maulkiller. Additionally, you get some crystal that lets you use less Force Energy when killin' dudes for your generous reservation. It's worth noting this offer only applies to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Force Unleashed II. There's nothing I don't love about this guy.
