Sideshow Collectibles sixth scale General Grievous is the ultimate version of this menacing villain. Creating General Grievous in this larger scale allows for greater detail and it shows. Featuring significant articulation, and accessories this is a must have for fans of Grievous.
The figure arrived in a sturdy cardboard box supported by styrofoam inserts in each corner. Once removed the product box itself is branded to reflect the character inside with the insignia for General Grievous on top and a large color photo on the bottom. Inside you will find General Grievous, along with an additional set of interchangeable arms, and a battle damaged version of his face (which is magnetically swappable) encased in styrofoam. It's at this moment you should slow down and carefully remove the foam inserts used to securely wedge the figure in place. Remember that the figure is fragile, and to use caution when removing it. Taped to the inside of the box lid is a plastic piece of packaging used to house all of the accessories which includes, a cape, blaster rifle, electropole, and stolen lightsabers.
Once I got Grievous out of the box I immediately wanted to try to set him up in various poses with all of the different accessories he comes with. Being such a larger figure you'll be glad to know that it comes with a support stand that rotates 360° to assist in each desired pose. With so much articulation you're not quite sure where to start turning and twisting the figure to get it into the right pose. I was told that because of the size, and skeletal nature of the figure, emphasis was placed to make the joints tight. As such, and because it is fragile - use TWO HANDS on each side of the joint, close to the joint and pose in that manner. Once I was able to get him to stand up vertically I attempted to swap out the two arm display for the split four arm attack display. The arms have plugs at the shoulder which plug into the back of the top of the green torso. I have to admit I was a bit intimidated at first as I didn't want to break anything, but I did manage to exchange the arms, and pose all four lightsabers. Remember the fragile part I mentioned earlier? Unfortunately I found out the hard way, and broke one of the thumbs off of one hand. Thankfully the hands are magnetic to help stabilize the weapons just enough for posing. The final piece that really makes this General Grievous figure stand out is the cape. Featuring the General Grievous symbol printed on the back, with a diamond print inner lining, where unlit saber hilts can be placed in the pockets within the cape, and a button and clasp for attaching.
Overall the General Grievous sixth scale figure is remarkably well done with a great deal off attention paid to detail. From the generous amount of articulation to the finer details like the delicate microphones on each side of the mask, a lot of effort went into replicating the marble alabaster look of his armor as well as numerous weathering on the body structure. I highly recommend the Sideshow Collectible sixth scale figure for any Star Wars fan. Below you'll find additional product information, along with several photos and a quick clip showing just how amazing this version of the twisted meld of flesh and metal actually is. Enjoy!
