PDA

View Full Version : The ridiculous reason (I think) Grievious looks why he does.

I remember it being commented from Lucas and friends that they wanted to make Darth Maul look as evil as possible. So they basically made him look like Satan. So now, they probably want to drive fear into the hearts of Jedi so they make Grievous look like a scary Halloween skeleton.:ermm:

Yeah, the skeleton look was pretty obvious to me.

And about May or so of '99 Darth Maul gave me nightmares. I couldn't get away from his face! It was everywhere! It was like an overused marketing tool... :D

You shouldn't poke fun. Grievous has a serious metabolic condition that makes him so skeletal. He doesn't like people pointing it out. It makes him do crazy things, like slaughter Jedi in large numbers.

And here I was thinking that they modeled him after Karen Carpenter. Man was I waaaaaay off.

I don't like Grievous. I know it's early to have an opinion like that, but his look doesn't impress me. I made sure I snatched up Maul and Dooku right away (because I liked them), but I may leave the poor General for someone else.

I was thinking the same thing.

I did buy the preview fig, but I'm with you in not liking the guy so far, the look just doesn't do it for me.


BTW, and this is just total guessery, but perhaps Grievous looks that way because he's a cyborg whose flesh has all been torn off and is more machine than man now, perhaps a glimpse into what Vader would become or something.

The first thing that came to mind for me was the dude in Willow who wore the Skeleton mask. I think Grievous looks okay, considering Stormtroopers always looked like deranged goalies.

Funny. I thought he was modeled after Paris Hilton, especially with those protruding ribs!:D :p See for yourself:

Oh man, you are out of your gourd! I think we need to do a sobriety check to ensure you're not surfing while under the influence. Paris Hilton is a major skeez, a subhuman no-talent junky hag whose only real claims to fame are money and a boring sex tape.

If you want an even more accurate account on the life of Paris Hilton, look no further than the South Park episode "Stupid Spoiled ***** Video Playset". It will change your life. :)

But I bet Grievious wouldn't answer his cell half-way through. :D

You find General Grevious more yummy? :D ;)

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't cheat on my wife for her. But back in my single days there was no way I would turn her down. Skeez or not.

And there it is, my dark ugly past has finally come out. Before I met my wife and settled down into the wonderful world of Star Wars collecting I had other hobbies. And much like today when I find a new figure on the pegs, I often found it hard to say no. :evil:

Admittedly there were a few times I woke up feeling more like a dog catched than a "fish"erman. LOL It took a while to learn I needed to stay away from the Tequillia! :crazed: (Soju-when I was in Korea). :evil:

I think Grievous looks like Dracula mated with a Battle Droid.

How was this not nominated for "Quote of the Day" way back when?
