Lego Might Have Made the Best (Affordable) General Grievous Figure Yet


I’ve always felt that Lego’s Bionicle-style licensed figures were a bit weird, especially when trying to capture actual human beings in a form more suited to articulated scarecrows.

General Grievous, on the other hand, is a tough figure to capture in anything other than a large-scale premium format, with his spindly, split-apart limbs and multiple bodily contortions. But by the Maker, I think Lego might have nailed it in this format (despite the apparent lack of cape…oh well, time for a third-party to step up on that).

The Wall Street Journal, of all places, has the full reveal. The figure itself will be on display at Star Wars Celebration, along with Clone Wars Obi-Wan, Commander Cody and Jango Fett. A Vader and Luke are coming later.
