Compare this General Grievous figure
This General Grievous figure is based on a previously released version of Grievous from 2005. It was re-released as a Walmart exclusive in August 2009 together with astromech droid CB-3D. The figure has 11 joints total - lacking a waist articulation and joints in the elbows and ankles.
This Grievous figure has all four arms extended - but unfortunately neither of them has any joints. His hands are a bit too wide - so the four included lightsabers sit very loosely in them. It's a bit frustrating trying to get this figure to stand right - and have it look somewhat good because the weapons keep falling out of the hands - or are in each others way. General Grievous' feet are a bit small - and don't give a lot of stability to the figure. Luckily Hasbro included peg holes in his feet so he can be placed on a stand.
The paint application adds a rusty and used look to the figure. The best feature of this figure is the cape. It fits quite well and is made out of a thicker material - making the General look a bit more menacing. It doesn't justify buying the figure again if you already own the previously released version - but it's a nice added accessory. All in all - the figure falls a bit short with no joints in his arms - balancing issues - and the weapons don't fit well in his hands.
In the comic Star Wars: General Grievous - the cyborg general has dark plans for a group of innocent young Padawans. At the same time - the astromech droid CB-3D assists a rogue team including the droid's master Flynn Kybo - on a mission to hunt and eliminate Grievous.
