This General Grievous action figure was released in
2007 in The Anniversary Collection.
It was exclusively available at StarWarsShop.com.
Hasbro gave the figure twelve joints and included
four accessories (blaster, coin, removable chest plate, shield).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- General Grievous (Concept) was released individually carded
- The figure is based on concept drawings done by Warren Fu
- The blaster attaches well to the right forearm
- Unfortunately, the shield doesn't fit well into either hand
- The soft-goods cape is permanently attached
- The front panel on Grievous' chest is removable, which reveals his organs
- General Grievous stands nicely on his own without help a stand
The articulation details are as follows: ball-jointed neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 ball-jointed elbows, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs, 2 ball-jointed knees, 2 ball-jointed ankles
Warren J. Fu worked as a visual effects art director at Industrial Light & Magic and was part of the concept art team for Episode III. He has contributed his artistic vision to all three movies in the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. One of his most notable contributions was the initial design for General Grievous, along with later input from fellow Episode III concept artist Ian McCaig, concept sculptor Robert E. Barnes, and concept design supervisor Ryan Church.
