Finding the Best General Grievous, part 6

New Clone Wars figure is Best General Grievous found. At least for now.

He lacks critical joints on the knees, angles, and elbows, but looks Awesome otherwise. Check out those fantastic claw feet!

Switchable arms are nice. His hands are the worst, I was barely able to get him to hold all lightsabers at once. And very hard to get lightsabers at better angles. Room for improvement on next model.

Scale is better in comparison to other figures. Needs a cape too.

Well thats my search. I would like to get a Lego version some day (both small and technic sets), and maybe the pre-droid suit one too. But for now I will be happy with the pile I have.

I have this one, and I agree that it is pretty cool. Unfortunately, its legs are so thin that whenever it gets slightly warm, it falls over. It would be nice if there were peg holes for a stand on the bottom of its feet. Have you seen the recent realistic style Grievous? It's pretty cool, and I think the only thing it's missing is a cape.
The pre-cyborg version is pretty cool, too!

On the other end of the spectrum, there's the Galactic Heroes version. It's kind of awesome, in my opinion.

Thanks Dan for your recent Grievous reviews, I've been looking for one too, but there are so many I don't know which one to go with. Now I am thinking of just going to the CW one.

@Mario: Are the other Grievous you mention, new releases?

Jcee: The pre-cyborg Grievous came out during the 30th anniversary line, so it was over a year ago. The recent realistic one was in the Legacy Collection and came out about a year ago. You can probably still order it online, or find it in a store if you're lucky.

Mario- Thanks for heads up on Legacy Collection, that one sneaked through again. Might have to pick that one up

Erin-GH's are fun. I should look for one too.

Great set of posts, very informative. I like my Clone Wars version (the first Cartoon Network one, not the new digital) The animated style just appeals to me. But I have to say I sort of dig the Force Battlers version there and this one.
