General Grievous

The eagerly awaited General Grievous model is now available to order from LEGOshop.com, £65 in the UK, $90 in the US, which for once is a slightly better exchange rate than usual for Star Wars sets.

It'll be a few days before he appears in our product feed, but don't let that stop you using the yellow link on the left to get to LEGOshop.com to order him!

Yeah, as I said before, it's the same price as the sailbarge was, in NZD. Really quite expensive when you think about it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

That is so COOL! I am going to Lego Shop at Home RIGHT now to buy him after this comment even though it is a tad expensive. It looks REALLY detailed! I can't wait until I get to build this set!

"Eagerly"? hahahaha, no one wants this set, uless they have extra $!

$90!? Too much for a lego set, when it is just a person made out of lego.

I might get it, depends how tall it really is.

By in United States,

I just bought it at Lego Shop at Home! I am so EXCITED!! It is also really tall Da_Legobuilder!

It's 18 inches tall, and has 1085 pieces. It's definately worth 90 dollars!

Gravatar
By in United States,

That's exactly what I thought Fighter95 and thats why I bought the AWESOME set!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gravatar

:O! Who ever gets it is lucky, very detailed too. I could only get something like that if it was Christmas day or something like that. I wish I could get it, maybe if it was $10... :P

I dunno, the droid gunship looks pretty cool I think, but really lego made it look like a front and a back. Kinda like the made the AT-ST look like a head and a pair of legs.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I do wish he was tan though, he's suppost to be tan. But white is okay too :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

This set looks great, and I am more than happy that it is out! However, it is a little overpriced, but if it is as big as you say it is fighter, than I agree with you. Also, I think the color you are looking for is cream not white, and I'm pretty sure it's the lighting. I will be getting this set even though I said otherwise because I just remembered that I have been waiting for TLC to make this set, and I can't miss it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Also, I expect to see some good reviews of this set soon.
(Apologies for the 'double post')

Gravatar
By in United States,

This set looks awesome, but I'm really bummed about the price. I'm still probably going to buy it... :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

YAY!!!! Mine is going to come on thursday!!!! Ouch, haha I jumped up with excitment and fell out of my chair. That really hurt hehe :D:D:D:D

Gravatar
By in Canada,

i just realised lego is pretty darn expensive for a few peices of plastic and the quality has gone down ,what are they doing it used to be made in sweeden now they are making it in contrys where the wages are lower,this set looks like a better choce than the mars mission base

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

I'm going to wait until it comes to NZ. Then i am going to buy it. It looks awesome!!

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

You must have a pretty good Toyworld, mine never sells UCS sets or anything like that. And to get exclusive sets I have to go to town. Although I see a cafe corner for the price of the sailbarge is being auctioned on trademe, quite cheap but I don't want it.

Gravatar
By in N/A,

Wow, looks awesome and good deal for a USC set! Might pick it up!

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Yea our toyworlds getting heaps. I'm going to get this one first tho.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

It doesn't come with a cape Leggodt. I suggest that you make one yourself, and I suggest you use fabric material to make it like Grevious in the movies. There are a couple of reasons why Grevious wouldn't have a cape. Firstly, he never fights with his lightsabers with his cape on. Secondly, have you ever seen a picture of lego on a box or something that doesn't include some of the lego? Of course aside from the transparent pieces, which lego were so modest to edit out of the box. I just suggest you gather some navy material, so it can drape around Grievous. That would be better than paper. :D

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

lol sorry for the double post but look what S@H have to say for one of their descriptions:
"Split-apart chestplate opens to reveal Grievous' organs!"
Thats quite funny, but they need an Obi-Wan to do that.

I really like this great detail and is quite cheap for UCS Set, lots of of nice pieces too.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

funny thing is i was watching tv when i sunnedly flicked throuh a channel that had episode three on ,and also it was the scene where obi wan kills gevirous

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

"So uncivilized." (Obi-wan)

This probably would be a cheap set for UCS, especially compared to the latest Falcon. I do hope that his arms can connect together.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

but seriosly legos getting really expensive for plastic blocks so it isnt cheap.also you seem happy luke skytalker , do you think starwars bionicles would be cool ,though if thre were i hope they wouldnt be like knights kingdom guys

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

"You can't stop the change any more than you can stop the suns from setting." (Shmi Skywalker)

Lego is probably getting more expensive, mostly because of the contract with star wars etc. I reckon that this Grevious is kinda like a star wars bionicle figure. In fact I reckon it'll be better. Knights Kingdom guys contain a diminuative number of really large pieces. I would rather have a bionicle than a knights kingdom guy, and I would rather have a figure like this than bionicle, but I like sets for minifigs best.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

"there is a do and a do not there is no try" yoda i think

well a geverious bionicle along with droids would be perfect for bionicle form, lego has been having finacail trobles and that is why they moved thre production to odd countrys ,and this is why the price is high too, also would the contract for starwars be cheaper if thre was a new movie,,,,, lego needs less contracts i.e. avatar ,that duplo tomas the tank engine, but sponge bob is okay i.e. krusty krab

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why is everyone doing quotes? yes that was yoda, and he said "Do or do not, there is no try. :D lets see, my turn! Um... lets quote a whole scene of episode III.

"Hello there"

"General Kenobi, you are a bold one, kill him.

"Back away! I will deal with this jedi slime, myself"

"Your move."

"You fool! I've been trained in your jedi arts by Count Dooku."

"Attack, Kenobi."

5 minutes later...

"Army or not, you must realize, you are doomed."

"Oh I dont think so"

Again, 5 minutes later...

"So uncivilized."

And grievous is gone, but luckily he is coming to my house! 3 days until mine gets here, I'm so excited! Who else ordered one? He looks so awesome. :D:D:D:D

"Heh, heh, heh. Time to abandon ship." (General Grievous)

I wonder how many of him are being sold. I reckon they were designed for AFOLs and boosted up the age reccommendation a little bit more than regular star wars sets. I wonder how they do the ages. I don't think Grievous will last long, I wouldn't buy him, but I do wonder how he is built up of so many pieces.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I don't really know to say this cause this should be important news that should be here.The new Indiana Jones Video Game is out,I found it on Toysrus.com.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I also ordered one and I am getting him tommorow!!!:D I am going to build him as soon as I get him!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

"You are lucky they want you alive"(General Grievous from Clone Wars)

That reminds me. Skytalker, in an earlier comment you mentioned that Grievous NEVER fights using his lightsabers while he's wairing a cape. Actually, that's not true. He does fight with a cape in the Clone Wars series, and isn't that the theme?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Your getting him tomorrow? Lucky...I still have 3 days...when did you order him? What shipping did you use? Where do you live? hehe I want to know how its getting to your house so soon. :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

I ordered him May 1st. I used the fastest way of shipping. I did that because I REALLY wanted to build him!:D Look at my profile to see where I live...... The shipping is pricey but I managed to pay for it....it's not that expensive, though. Considering the fact I am getting him TOMMOROW!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I have only used the fastest way of shipping with this item...it's my first time with fast shipping on any lego item. :D hehehehehehehehe

Gravatar
By in Canada,

i would perfer him with a cape ,and articulations

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hey if we're getting the 10186 and the 10187 sets and pics this early, then why aren't we getting the 10188? Skytalker?

Gravatar
By in United States,

This set looks really cool, but the hips only move forward and back, so the legs are always parallel to each other... horrible for posing... I'd get him if he were cheaper, but I have higher priorities right now :)

Gravatar
By in Canada,

i wouldnt waste my money just yet , because thre are tons of new sets coming in a month and you might be in trouble if you have no money bu theres a set you want , in my opinion wait

"This is my apprentice, Darth Maul. He will find your lost ship." (Darth Sideous)

I don't think that lego has even made the box for the death star, remember that the preliminary pics were of the boxes? Of course this was different, though, because Grievous was found in an instruction manual. I don't think that that has happened before. I do have a link to some pretty good pics of the Droid Gunship and T-130 and it says the pic for the death star is coming soon. So I will keep an eye on that.

Gravatar
By ,

Skytalker, can you give us the link you mentioned with the cool pics? I tried asking this earlier, but my comment was deleted. I don't know why, sorry if there was a misunderstanding. I just wanted to see the TX-130. :D

P:S Does Grievous come with a cape?

Gravatar
By in N/A,

I looked at S@H and it did say,"Split-apart chestplate opens to reveal Grievous' organs!" That is funny! The organs aren't really anything, I think it was this red round piece.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

um whys your name exo force fan when on your profile it says a little bit right after exo force,, the model looks rather brittle and volitile there might be to much weight on top so when you guys get yours you should take that into account

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Exo-forcefan, I commented on that four days ago, just scroll up and you will see what I said about them.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

it would almost be better without the base underneath ,, then you could make your own and it would be cheaper , but i have no problem with a few more peices

Gravatar
By in N/A,

doctorwho/, I used to like Exo-Force and that was the time I came up with the idea of Exo-ForceFan as a name. Now Exo-Force is boring. Anyway Luke Skytalker I know, I read your comment. That is why I put "It did say!"

Gravatar
By in Canada,

exo force has gotten boring ,the best ones were the first ones , ,is there any reinforcement for the light sabers and i really doubt theres a cape

Gravatar
By ,

*walks in* *looks around*

Well, back from my Dark Age. :D

Finally this came out! I've seen pics of it and thought it was fake until my friend who has a friend who works for LEGO that said this was real. A little spendy though, don't you think?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, like I said, I am very impressed :D Greivous tomorrow!!!!! im so excited, how's yours lego12? :D:D:D:D

Gravatar
By in Canada,

huw deleated those comments Fighter95 and tell us about this set once you get it ,i.e. how long it took to build ,new peices , strength ,ect

Gravatar
By in United States,

I will. Im so excited it should be coming any minute now!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Make sure to write a good review of it once you get it, fighter. :) Well, since huw deleted my comment THAT CONTAINED ON-TOPIC INFORMATION, I will say this again: I think that I will, once again, skip this set in accordince with what doctorwho said earlier, but I'm kind of a wishy-washy person when it comes to this so don't be surprised if I change my mind again. Happy V-E Day! :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

I GOT IT AND IT IS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!! ITS HUGE!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I posted a review too ;) It hasnt appeared yet, but it should soon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I got it yesterday and it RULES!!! It is HUGE! It took me about 4 hours and 30 minutes to build, I think.... It has some pretty cool peices, you'll have to buy it to see them....just kidding....hehehehehe!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

im rather quick when it comes to building

Gravatar
By in United States,

Me too! Considering the fact its a $90 set!

Gravatar
By in United States,

My review appeared now! Yay!!! Grievous is the best Star Wars character ever!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

It took me 3 hours and 30 minutes to build!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well it depends how old you are! If your older than me then you will build it faster. If you are younger than me than i will be embarrased! Hehehehehehe!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hey, fighter, I read your review of the set, and I liked it and voted it a "Yes". It was pretty long, but very informative and easy to understand, but YOU STOLE MY IDEA FOR A TITLE!!! Punk! Just kidding! :D

Gravatar
By in Canada,

i could build it in 2 hr s or less ( im quick because im a gamer)

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Yeah, cool reveiw Fighter, nice title as well, might I add. Leggodt has really cool ideas for titles and i enjoy reading his reveiws, I remember the one he made for his Sith Infiltrator reveiw; "This is my apprentice, Darth Maul. He can find you lost ship, if only he could find his own..." That was one of your best I reckon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks, skytalker! I like your reviews too! Did I really misspell "your".

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

No, sorry Leggodt, I was just writing that from memory. Fighter, does Grievous's arms connect together?

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's okay, skytalker, and no they do not.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah, I really like your reviews too Leggodt :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

How old are you lego12? hehe

P.S. Leggodt and lego12 do you like talking to me? I feel lonely on my Instant messanger and I want to know some more people :D just saying I would like to talk to you both :D

ANYWAY...General grievous is so cool!!!! They should make more things like him, do some other figures :D like a giant magna guard would be cool too

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like talking to you Fighter95 its exciting to talk to people who LOVE Lego's as much as I do! i 100% agree with Fighter95 about them making more things like hime! I like the idea of a giant Magna Guard Fighter95. By the way how old are YOU, Fighter95?? Hehehehehehehehehehe.......

Gravatar
By in United States,

By the way doctorwho/ not to be rude or anything but you kind of don't know how long it will take you to build it unless you actually built it like me and Fighter95 did.

Gravatar
By in United States,

See thats why it took me longer to build him because I am younger than you and you are 2 years older than me!

Gravatar
By in United States,

P.S. I was talking about General Grevious.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I gathered that :) hehehehehe

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm sure there are a lot of people you met, like friends, even family. They were strangers at first too. The only way I wont be a stranger is if you get to know me. Your friends were strangers too, but you had to trust them a little bit to get to know them and become friends. If everyone was a stranger and you couldn't talk to them at all, the world would be a pretty sad place...

Gravatar
By in Canada,

By the way doctorwho/ not to be rude or anything but you kind of don't know how long it will take you to build it unless you actually built it like me and Fighter95 did.

, im pretty fast at building though it might take me 3 hrs depending if its flimsy or odd instructions .

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am always fast at building but I ALWAYS double check what I do so I don't mess up on the instructions.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

your welcome for the advice its just not that safe meeting people through the internet ,so does this set come with a cape

Gravatar
By in United States,

I trust you, fighter, but I can't email you cause there is something wrong with my emailing system that I am having a hard time fixing, and I don't have instant messanger. Sorry. Besides, if you did anything bad to me, I'd probably beat the living daylights out of you. I'm huge, by the way!(sorry for being violent. I didn't scare you did I?) WELL! Since there's no chance of that happening, never mind!

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

They have the same job as a paleantologist, they dig through dirt until they find treasure, metaphoracally. Anyway, i reccommend that we get back to topic, cause we are far from it.

Fighter, does he come with a cape? (I'll bet you'll say no)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nope :(

By in United Kingdom,

Gents, I've deleted a lot of the comments in here as they weren't pertinent to discussion of the set.

By in New Zealand,

Hmmm, this really looks an awsome set, just not sure how i'll get it.I normally get my sets from ebay but the NZ$ not looking good to the US$ at the moment. if any kiwis here know where i can get this beast cheeper than RRP please, give me a yell :-).it seem a good price for the size if it flip, almost 60cm!!! Ya just gotta love big sets.
