RSVLTS x Star Wars “Duel of Fates” Kunuflex - Preview

There are two types of people in this world: Those who imitated the most epic lightsaber battle from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in their backyard with toy lightsabers (or perhaps with sticks, back in the day) and those who have never really lived. And definitely Clone Wars duels. And likely also some from Rebels

So for all those who have...we introduce "Duel of Fates" into the overall Star Wars™ x RSVLTS Collections!

And the timing couldn’t be more perfect, specifically as many of us know and celebrate the fact that 23 years ago, today, we were treated to one of the greatest fight scenes AND soundtracks of all time with the theatrical release (5/19/99) of The Phantom Menace. From the moment Darth Maul reveals his double-sided lightsaber to his fall into the abyss at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and all set to John Williams epically haunting score (of the same shirt name), we get some uninterrupted, game-changing, high-octane action.

Mind you, this shirt doesn’t showcase solely the TPM duel either; upon further examination, you’ll notice the depictions on this dark and epic KUNUFLEX™ button down are an ode to all battles across Star Wars lore between Kenobi and Maul, a tribute to one of the galaxy's great rivalries.

Preview below…and also check out two additional news articles by way of and that have given a bit more context to the RSVLTS “Duel of Fates” shirt, the TPM anniversary and significance of the Kenobi/Maul rivalry over the years, that lil ol’ “Kenobi” series dropping next week on Disney+, and beyond:
