Ooohhh....  I'll guess $15 plus tax.   ::)

Seriously though, a General Grievous on fire?  Unique and cool looking, but did we really need it?  Especially for what it will cost?   :-\

Oh well, put me down for my 2 to fufill my 1 loose, 1 carded disease.   :P

I wonder if this is a retool of the exploding sculpt (#36)

Looks more like the preview scuplt to me.

Cool to see more '06 product, but can't say I'm super excited about it though. Funny that he's holding the gun that's causing him to explode into flames. ;)

Yeah, it would have been cooler if it was packed in with the #55 Pilot Obi-Wan

I don't think the legs are right to be the preview sculpt

None of the 2006 product really makes me say"I Need That!"  I no longer need any of the core characters if they are not SA.  I no longer need to buy any more figures of Yoda, Darth Vader, R2, Chewie or Boba Fett unless they somehow surpass the VOTC Versions.  I no longer need a C3PO unless they give us one with articulated knees and elbows.  I no longer will buy stuff they crap out like this exclusive.  You have to work hard for my money from now on, Hasbro.

I thought the same thing when I saw that gun.  I'm not overly excited about this either, but it isn't as bad as I thought it would be.  If its in the $13 to $15 range, which is most likely, I'll say count me out on this one.  If it is somewhere in the ballpark of normal figure price, I'd probably pick one up though.  Kind of neat looking, but not worth the "normal Target exclusive price" to me necessarily.  It is nice to see something else from 06 though.

It would be a good way for them to put out a General Grievous Mini-Holo; you might just be on to something there Jayson!

The more I look at this figure, the more he grows on me.  I really didn't like the #36 Exploding General figure, so this will be a much nicer display piece for that scene on my SW Utapau shelf...

Hate it/ have to get it, damn :( ::)

Looks like Hasbro did include the fingers/hands he lost to the lightsaber earlier in the battle? If so good catch- looks like the case on the staff holding side, but can't tell on the gun arm yet :-\

Interesting… I wish they would make him more "bone" color rather than the "fresh from the showroom floor" look.

Or make his flames "light up" with the push of a button

I am glad it is a Target exclusive, that makes it more easier to pass on than a cheaper readily available one.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

I think this is the beginning of the end for Hasblo.  Looks like they are running out of ideas on there end and are trying to bleed the line with any existing mold they can reuse.  With that said, i'll still take a couple since I am an exclusive completist. :P

Hey, if they are willing to give us a flaming GG, maybe they’ll give us a smoldering Ewok carcass from ROTJ  ;D

Didn't we already get this figure?  Oh wait, since he didn't ACTUALLY explode in the movie....  ::)
