Why the Sideshow Collectibles General Grievous Sixth Scale Figure is a Must-Have For Star Wars FansMarch 4, 2014
Arguably, one of the most exciting and aesthetically complex characters to emerge from the most recent Star Wars trilogy is the ruthless and malevolent leader of the Confederate Droid Army, General Grievous. Now, thanks to the dedication of some of the industrys most talented artists, the saber-wielding, Jedi-slaying Kaleesh warrior can finally take his place in the collections of Star Wars fans everywhere.
Of all the figures in the companys vast and expanding Star Wars catalogue, the Sideshow Collectibles General Grievous Sixth Scale figure is easily one of the most impressive. Faithful to the characters commanding on-screen presence, Grievous stands an imposing 16 (fully upright) which should ensure that it looms comfortably above most other collectibles of its scale.
As expected, the sculpture is meticulously rendered and the painted finish is remarkably precise. Fine details like the nicks in Grievous armor, and the subtle hues and textures in his organic eyes really emerge up-close. Complementing the figures screen-accurate appearance is its staggering level of articulation. Multiple joints in the neck, torso, and throughout the appendages put an extensive array of posing options within grasp and lend real utility to the (included) rotating figure stand.
When it comes to accessories, Sideshows sixth scale Grievous truly shines. In addition to two sets of swappable arms (closed and split) the figure comes with an electro staff, blaster, four saber hilts, and four ignited sabers. The diminutive sabers are intricately wrought, but unfortunately they dont actually illuminate. Especially impressive is the removable fabric cloak that features internal pockets stitched into the lining to hold the tiny saber hilts. The Sideshow Exclusive variant of the General Grievous figure also includes a battle-damaged mask that can be changed out to allow for even more display options.
The Sideshow Collectibles General Grievous Sixth Scale figure is a clear, unequivocal must-have for Star Wars aficionados and collectors. Its a stunning and a masterful recreation of an evil fan favorite that were enthused to recommend. See more of General Grievous below.
