Just found a pic of this, sorry if it has been posted. It is sweet, comes with some extra sabers.

Yeah, he's pretty cool. I had him in my hands 2 weeks ago when Ghetto-Mart wouldn't sell it to me.:rolleyes:

I scored him a few weeks ago at a K-Mart, even though I knew he was $2 higher than he should've been, and he's worth every penny! :)

A few extra sabers? Heck, 4 is alot of sabers by my count. It's a decent figure and once again I love the packaging on these ROTS figures. Although if you check my posts before I saw it in person I loathed it.

It looks like the 4 saber attack with an extension arm or something...

Thanks,

Don't know about this Grievious fella. I'll take your words on this being a well-executed figure but to me he just looks like a diner droid with a cape. T-800 he is not. Im not sure that hes actually going to be as cool as he's been hyped up to be by the advance word from McCallum&Co and the cartoon because for me he fails on looks. It seems like a case of them thinking 'hey if we say he's cool often enough people will believe it'. Also he's another one of those superfluous 'why were they never seen or referred to in the OT' characters Lucas is fond of introducing, ranking alongside Qui-gon and Binks in this category.

I suppose I should wait till I see him but the foreknowledge that hes CGI doesn't elicit much enthusiasm. I can't see them pulling off a Gollum here with what will presumably be only about 15 minutes of screentime for him in the entire feature film Star wars universe.
