Elite Series 7 inch General Grievous just went on sale on Disney's site.
That thing is going to vanish quick. I'd grab it unless you plan on waiting for another comparable that might match your 6 inchers
me (>>5247491) again,
They're releasing a few from the Elite Series box set in singles releases. So far of those they've released only Anakin has sat around on their site. Everyone has came and went. Force Awakens ones I would expect to do the same because they all have 6 inch representation with black series. Hasbro missed this boat on Grevious so far so Disney is cashing in.
The articulation is shit. Small ball joints on the shoulders that are too weak to hold the arms up, so floppy mess there. The elbow and wrists are technically ball joints but the sculpt makes them more like swivels. Swivel waist. Ball hips that are, again, too weak to hold a pose for long . single hinge knees. No articulation below knees so it will always be in that kind of moving forward pose. The thing can barely stand, even with the use of the stand. The hands are too big to hold the sabers well.
The legs, torso, lower arms.
i was expecting this figure to suck and was still disappointed. all of his joints were loose as fuck. i tightened them all. range of motion is still shit, but now i like him a bit better.
also, he does actually hold his lightsabers well, you just have to get creative with the greebles on the hilts + the right spots in his hands.
each store only got 8 of these and some didnt get any at all. i predict his price to skyrocket unless everyone realizes hes junk
This. Lego CCBS Grievous is so absurdly good that I no longer care about getting any other Grievous toys. I don't even care that it isn't in scale with my other figures, or that it has that Bionicle look, two things that I thought would bug the shit out me. It's just a magnificent toy. Maybe even the best toy of 2015 in my book.
Eh, whatever. I'm thrilled that he's getting a figuarts either way. In the meantime the Elite Series can be a placeholder since the figuarts won't be out for a long while. Or I can just sell the elite series at some point.
