  • General Grievous (Exploding Body!) was released individually carded
  • The blaster and the blue lightsaber fits OK into the hands
  • The figure can be taken apart entirely from the waist up
  • When the button on the back of the figure is pressed - General Grievous "explodes" and falls apart into several pieces
  • Once the figure is taken apart it's tricky to put it back together without having it fall apart unintentionally several more times
  • The cape fits well - but it's tricky to get it onto the figure once the figure is assembled again
  • Hasbro made this version of General Grievous slightly taller than previous releases in 2005 - it stands about one head taller than a basic Star Wars action figure
  • This version of Grievous has two arms and it's not possible to separate them out into four
  • Grievous can be balanced out quite well without help from a stand
  • This very same figure was re-released by Hasbro in 2006 during the Star Wars SAGA Collection, have a look at the figure here: General Grievous (Heroes & Villains)


The supreme commander of the droid armies is tracked to Utapau by Obi-Wan Kenobi. A powerful combination of droid and alien, Grievous is a formidable fighter, and ultimately confronts the Jedi in single combat.
