    Awesome, huge set!
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Self
    My completely biased opinion is that General Grievous makes for an amazing buildable action figure! He cuts an imposing figure and comes with lots of good parts for building titanic creations. And he is HUGE! I really dig the connection they used for the head: a typical cladding connector. It makes for easy posing. The lightsaber blades are also fantastic, with a rubbery texture to make them more durable. His arms can connect together, which enhances playability. Still, without an opponent he seems to lack just a little in play value. Can't wait to pick up Obi-Wan Kenobi! My only struggle is that posing him takes a bit of getting used to. His legs have some limitations in how far they can move; I'm used to the single-joint ankles, and his ankles are a bit different to work with. I know I'll figure it out, but it's been tricky posing him and keeping him balanced. This isn't a slight against the set - it is extremely well designed. But just be aware that achieving dynamic poses may not be as easy as you're used to.

    Amazing Figure!!

    By far the best looking and most resemblant of the bunch. Super fun to "BUILD" a action figure with such functionality and resemblance to actual character. Wish I could have had such awesome action figures when I was a kid, luckily they are just as cool as an adult. Must have for all Star Wars and Lego fans alike. Had to get Obi-Wan to complete the look which I think everyone should with getting either figure. I attached a couple pictures in the pose I think looks the best. Enjoy, and go get you sweet buildable action figures now.

    The best CCBS set yet!
    | 19-24
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Self
    Being one of my favorite Star Wars characters, General grievous' newest incarnation in Lego form was an instant buy as soon as I saw him. I was surprised about his price point, the most expensive CCBS set since Hero Factory's Queen Beast, but once I had him all built on my desk, I figured why: Grievous is huge, at 32 cm height, or even a bit more if his legs are bent as little as possible, he stands out next to all other CCBS sets height wise.(Just how tall he is can be seen in the first submitted image, depicting him next to the minifigure size grievous he is based of and a standard minifigure sized Obi Wan Kenobi, both not included in this set.) Another pleasant difference is his unique build, which utilizes two main torso pieces attached to each other, a clever and articulate able shoulder build (A feature we have not seen since bionicle's Maxilos and Spinax from 2007!) and legs which, though a bit thick for grievous skeletal look, provide friction and the stability to keep his entire body in a stable pose, even on only one leg. Even for Non-Star Wars-lovers, the set is worth taking a look into, since it features a lot of recolors of bone, armor, and decorative pieces in desirable colors such as the highly sought after Beige. Regarding new pieces, Grievous doesn't stand out too much, delivering four smooth looking pieces of lower arm plates , a new print on his chest armor and, obviously, the head, which is nicely detailed and on-model for both the Clone Wars and Episode III versions of the character. The lightsabers, which are not exclusive to this set, are made of a reasonably tough rubber-ish plastic, assumedly to keep them safe for kids while playing, but they also have enough friction on each other to simulate the clashing of blades in the movies. A low new piece count is not necessarily a bad thing though, since it enables Lego to sell this impressive set at a reasonably low price point, at about 20 cents per part. Of course, no set is without it's flaws, though Grievous doesn't have too many. the lowest part of his legs, directly connected to his feet, is barely articulate, forcing his knee joint into a specific angle to have him pose. I can see how using two more bones on the front part of the foot (As suggested in second and third of the pictures to go with this review) could compromise stability after continued usage, but the play value of having such a vastly more expansive range of poses is just worth it to me. Another side note, not necessarily a flaw, about his feet is Lego's decision to give him three toes on the front, unlike all his movie and game depictions, which feature two. This is not real a flaw since the extra toe is easily detachable, and I would not complain about two free pieces. The next flaw of the set is the build of the arms. Compared to his complicated torso and leg build, they are a bit disappointing with the standard CCBS bone to bone with armor on top construction. They also seem a bit short, compared to the rest of grievous impressive body, though this is forgiven since this is the second largest CCBS bone piece at use, the largest of which would have been too big. When attached to each other through technic pins, which is one of the main play features of the set, their articulation is quite limited, especially in the hands which now become simple hinge joints, limiting lightsaber posability severely! His hands are the normal CCBS hands which have been around since Hero factory wave two (2011). They do not articulate at all, and really should be replaced as soon as possible. The last, and maybe most crucial flaw, are the inaccurate proportions to any of grievous' depictions in movies/series. As mentioned beforehand, his legs are a bit thick for the skeletal look, the arms are a bit short, the torso is gapped and the feet feature an extra toe. This might hinder the enjoyment of collectors that would want to buy the set for display purposes, though it doesn't affect children that would play with the set. tl;dr pros: -good price per part ratio for a star wars set -new parts/recolors -solid design, very stable -good playability for children -clever build -Impressive size, the tallest CCBS set available cons -not completely accurate to Grievous' design proportion wise -limited articulation in the foot/arms when attached to each other Afterall, even though I've gone into pretty great detail about the set's flaws, I highly recommend it! It is my absolute favorite CCBS set released by Lego, and I would love to see more sets of similar size!

    Now he needs a friend...
    | 25-34
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    I have to start with a remark considering LEGO packaging and instructions: if you are going to have multiple LEGO bags in one box it would be nice if we weren't forced to open them all before we even reach the end of the first page of instructions. This set features 4 plastic bags: 1 for the single piece that is his face (yes, really), 1 small for mostly the connector pieces, 2 large for the remaining pieces - except his main body part that comes outside any plastic bag. By step 3 of the instructions all bags but the head had to be open and emptied to find the pieces we need. So my suggestion: either split the pieces through the bags so that we open each one as we end a part of the figure or just put everything in one bag and save up on some plastic. I am scared to start my Imperial Star Destroyer. Now, for the review I will keep this short and to the point. Overall a beautiful figure of one of my favourite character from the saga. Pros: - No stickers, all (the few: face and torso are printed) - HUGE figure with lots of articulations: head, 4 arms and 2 legs. - Love the claws Cons: -It does have lots of articulations, but they could be very well improved as most reviewers here already pointed out. The legs are clumsy and very hard to make a pose that does not throw it out of balance - specially at hip level. -The arms are way to simple and thin and the hands could be replaced by something like the ones in the Iron Man Hulk Buster figure. -The two grey parts that attach the arms to each other look out of place.
