Hasbro has released many different versions of General Grievous over the years, but each one of them had some bigger flaws, the biggest one being the hight. General Grievous is much, much taller and bigger than most other Star Wars characters, and this time Hasbro took that into consideration when making this figure. Actually, it feels like as if Hasbro went back to the drawing board and started from scratch, because this figure has it all, including two removable and bendable chest plates, a removable neck piece, 2 arms which can be extended into 4, the figure is not super articulated, but ULTRA articulated with 24 points of articulation! (including all 4 of Grievous' arms!), it has a great dirty paint job, and it can actually stand without the help of an action stand (which is a good thing since there are no peg holes in the General's feet). Hasbro included a blue and green lightsaber and a droid blaster with the figure. If they would have included a nice soft goods cloak, it would have been the ultimate General Grievous version, but even without the cloak, this is definitely the best action figure of General Grievous as of 2008.
