Review: LEGO Construction 75112 Star Wars General Grevious 32cm tall Buildable Figure

"More machine than alive, Grievous is—though more dangerous for it." ― Jedi Master Yoda

General Grievous was a brilliant Separatist military strategist and a feared Jedi hunter, known for his ruthlessness and hacking cough. He was the Supreme Commander of the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars against the Galactic Republic and is trained in all lightsaber combat forms to ensure the Jedi's destruction. His body itself was a weapon, allowing him lightning quick strikes and devastating blows.

This is the LEGO Construction 75112 Star Wars General Grevious Buildable Figure. The description for the product reads: Lead the Separatist Droid Army with super-tough General Grievous as you’ve never seen him before! This amazing buildable LEGO version of the feared Supreme Commander features fully posable limbs, 2-into-4 separating arms and 4 buildable Lightsabers. This ultra-fast General is ready for intense battle!


LEGO Construction 75112 Star Wars General Grevious Buildable Figure Features posable limbs, 2-into-4 separating arms and 4 buildable Lightsabers. You can separate the arms and battle with 4 Lightsabers! Lead the Droid Army against the Jedi! Sturdy and durable design for intense action play. Figure stands 32cm tall. Cape not included. The cape came from the Hasbro Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith General Grievous 12-inch Action Figure. The figure was too short and not imposing or intimidating enough so when I saw that this Lego General Grevious Buildable Figure is 32cm tall, I had to get it. Check out the height and size comparison with Sideshow Collectibles 1/6th scale Obi-Wan Kenobi in the pictures posted below. Me thinks this Lego General Grevious Buildable Figure looks better with the cape.

Without the cape, Lego General Grevious Buildable Figure looks too skinny

For me, the Lego Construction Buildable Figure series works best for General Grevious as Grievous was reconstructed as a cyborg after being critically injured in an explosion aboard his shuttle so he looks more machine than flesh. The rest of the figures are less convincing as actual figures. Fun for the kids but not ideal as 1/6th scale figures. Lego should stick to what they do best - vehicles and buildings.
