This General Grievous action figure was released in
2012 in the Movie Heroes toy line.
Hasbro gave the figure eleven joints and included
six accessories (removable neck-collar, blaster, 2 green lightsabers, 2 blue lightsabers).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- This General Grievous figure is a repaint of the 2005 ROTS General Grievous (Four Lightsaber Attack!)
- The figure is about one head shorter than what it is supposed to be (it's the about the same height as a regular figure)
- When the head is pushed down, all four arms move up or down
- Both shoulders can be rotated 360 degrees, giving it the "spin" effect as seen in the movie
- The lightsabers fit only loosely into all the hands
- The blaster is a better fit, but due to the lack of elbow joints, the figure will point the blaster in a strange angle
- The neck piece can be taken off the figure
- There was no cloak included
- Grievous has balancing problems, but there are peg holes in both feet so he can be placed on a stand
The articulation details are as follows: ball-jointed neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 4 swivel shoulders, 2 swivel legs, 2 ball-jointed knees
General Grievous is the supreme commander of the droid armies. The ruthless cyborg is
tracked to Utapau by Obi-Wan Kenobi, where the two engage in single combat. A formidable fighter, Grievous
uses lightsabers with great skill and relishes any opportunity to duel a Jedi.
