    Yeah, they really are a disappointment. Like I said though, R2 is really cool.

    If anyone's interested, my General Grievous review is up. Fair warning: it's pretty blunt.

    I really thought that figure was going to be the definitive Grievous, but they still gave him crap articulation, flimsy arms, and one of the lightsabers is completely bowed right out of the packaging!!

    On the bright side, the money you'll save passing on some of these figures can go toward the AT-TE or the BMF!!!

    I really like the look of Grievous.

    Maybe the rumored General Grievous (Space Destruction) will be more articulated, hopefully.

    Oh I agree. Grievous looks good.

    But then you pick it up and realize it's not worth the money.

    As for the "Space Destruction" Grievous, I'm not going to make any assumptions. Hasbro's dropped the ball on Grievous too many times for me to be optimistic. If it does end up being the version we've been waiting for, then I'll gladly buy it.

    Just finished my review of Artoo. There's a chance it could be up on Yodasnews tonight, so check back late night or tomorrow.

    It is a GREAT figure!!

    Captain Rex and the Clonetrooper are looking better too. Noticed earlier that both have ball-hinged wrists like Gree.

    Wow, that is a major disappointment on Grievous, not entirely surprising though. Lemme ask, are the multi-arms hinged at each individual shoulder, or JUST the main shoulder? Because 2 pairs of arms pointing the same way would be really dopey.

    And I didn't realize he was SUCH a pinheaded figure.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I definitely won't try to get the Holo Grievous from TRU then.

    I don't like the action feature on Yoda but being able to stick the gimer stick into the slot makes me feel much better about the figure. Still, I'd like to minimize my repeat purchases for this line and as I do like clone figures, the battlepack will be tough to pass up and so I'll try to wait for it and try to resist getting the carded Yoda.

    Just one shoulder joint per arm. The arms are facing the same direction. Adding insult to injury is that the hands have not articulation and are facing contradicting directions. Look at how awkward the sabers are in my review. You can't really do anything about it!!!

    Ok, that's what I thought. I saw the thing in the review about the no-wrists being a problem, but it wasn't vehemently stated that the shoulders didn't move independent of each other and I wanted to be sure. What a STUPID idea! What's the point of that Hasbro?!?

    In case anyone's interested and didn't happen to notice yet, my review of R2-D2 is also at Yodasnews.

    http://www.kid4life.com/yoda2/R2-D2%...ne%20Wars).htm

    Captain Rex will be the next figure to get reviewed. Been working on it for two days now, but I keep getting sidetracked by trips to see "The Dark Knight"
