When I first saw the CW General Grievous, I thought it looked pretty cool. But after tearing it out of its package, I'm not really too fond of it. I can't get it to stand up because of how it was designed. The top is too heavy, the waist is too narrow, and the feet/claws don't touch the ground properly. The record I have for the longest standing goes to the Holographic Grievous with only two arms, who stood for 4 days before tumbling over mysteriously in the middle of the night. The four armed Grievous can't stand for more than a day. It's disappointing. I've tried to balance out the top half so that it won't fall forward or backward, but nothing works. Anybody else run into the same troubles? Any solutions?
Aside from the standing issues, I can't get him to hold the lightsabers properly. Maybe the upcoming Legacy Collection Grievous will be better.
I like all of the little features on R2 but I found the most perfect spot for the figure. The droid socket on the ARC-170. Since the CW R2 is smaller (shorter) than the rest of the astromech droids that have been made, it fits into the droid socket like I'd hoped and wanted the other droids to. It doesn't hang out obnoxiously and it isn't all that loose. For those of you who have an ARC-170, try it out.
Lastly, you knew it was only a matter of time before Hasbro found another way to re-release the Jedi Starfighter. I'm not too much in the loop, but you can see it here. Hasbro, of course, incorrectly called it the Delta-2 (a mash up of Delta-7 and Eta-2), but that has since been "fixed" by calling it the Delta-7B. The only differences being that the droid socket is in front of the ****-pit and the lasers are mounted on the exterior of the ship. Who am I kidding, I'll probably still pick one up. I don't remember from the movie, but I thought they still showed the red R3 flying with Obi-Wan (not R2), so I wonder if Hasbro has any plans to make another astromech droid in the CW style.
