If there was anything cool about the Star Wars prequels, it was definetly their assortment of villains. The third installment, Revenge of the Sith, gave audiences the rasping, cybernetic precursor to Darth Vader, General Grievous...

Trained in the jedi arts by the Separatist leader, Count Dooku, General Grievous uses his four robotic arms to wield four lightsabers in battle against Obi Wan Kenobi. Sadly, the Mugg version of Grievous comes with a mere two arms...


The General's coughing fits are due to an unfortunate force crushing incident performed by Jedi Master, Mace Windu (as seen in the Cartoon Network's original Clone Wars animated series).

Bro, I wonder why Sideshow or Medicom did not make the 12inch series for the General..So far only Hasbro did that before..

desMOnd; Grievous would be an awesome 12 inch figure if either Sideshow or Medicom ever produced one. Though I can't see Sideshow making a figure as complicated as Grievous. Those big, clunky mechanical characters are usually only produced through Hot Toys (Iron Man Mark I, ED-209, the Power Loader from Aliens, etc.)
