I just got this in the mail, and was wondering if anyone had any advice on what to use to attach the right hand(which holds the lightsaber) to the right arm. I have superglue, but am still fairly new to assembling and painting miniatures.
I think most minis people use Superglue, Zap-a-Gap, or similar.
Take some time with it--test fit, file it as necessary, use some green stuff to fill in the gap where it doesn't fit true, then glue with +1 super-thin and apply accelerator. Set it aside for at least a day, then clean it up and it'll be ready for priming and paint. Drilling out Darth Maul's arm and adding a small pin will strengthen the bond and reduce the chance of the hand popping off down the road. You can find green stuff, pins, drills and everything else at your local game store or here at Paizo.
One of these will help immensely with seeing the pieces and holding them. I also recommend a small cache of tools, like these found at Paizo, especially utility knives, fine work files and a hand-drill; and a green self-healing cutting mat keeps everything clean and helps the figures stand out during detail work. A bright work lamp is a must, but be sure to use natural light or the bulb-equivalent when you start painting--the colors you mix under fluorescents will look very different under normal light.
