Since it utilizes the new saga card will he include a exclusive mini holo figure as well, hmmmm

If they do, I wonder if it will be random.

I'm not all that thrilled with the figure, but it's enough of a difference to not outright offend me. I'm in for two as another member of the carded/loose disease foundation.

I do like the card quite a bit. The silver and black classes up even cheap repaint/retool figures.

I can't see this figure doing as well as any of the exclusive clones, but more in line with the Lava figures. If so, hopefully Target will have the common sense to bring the price down.

Looks pretty cool to me. If it's in the $6 range, maybe I'll get it. If it's $15 like the rest, Hasbro and Target can forget about getting my $$$.

I think I have all the Grievous figs I'll ever need.  The fact that this will probably be $12.99 pretty much seals the deal.

I'll pass on this and all other lame-ass, $17 dollar Target "Exclusives".  :P

Its those "eye flames" which just look stupid to me. If those could come off...still not worth it really.

I don't mind a flaming sculpt, like the Ringwraiths from LOTR.  A light's a decent gimmick for me, but, guess we won't get that here.

I only like the fire on the figure, but that's really pulling me in. I guess I'll take one for the $15-$20 price tag. ::)

Too bad it's not a Walmart exclusive, I like their prices much better...

It's kind of a cool figure though I think.  Will make for a pretty spiffy diorama scene.  I'll get one.

 :P

It's kind of cool for being very specific.  I like it overall but I know the price I'm going to just despise.  This, like Jeff said, will be anywhere in the $10 - $15 range I'm sure...  Like everything else Target gets.

I do think it's kind of neat and surpasses the exploding Grievous in every way as far as looks.  Love the fire effects, and he comes with the pike too which is cool.

Ones like this kill me though...  I am cool with the Lava figures being left on card, but this figure I sorta want one opened to set with a Pilot Obi-Wan holding the pistol.  I don't wanna buy 2 though so I'll most likely just get one and open it.  Unless by some miracle Target decides to lower prices.  Even if it was $8 or so I'd consider 2.

Hopefully after Hasbro sees that most of their LAva Reflection Anakins and Obi Wans have gone on clearance mostly because of the price this one will be around the price of the Separation of the Twins. If so I'll be picking one up. If its more than 8.00 then I'll pass.
I remember my dream now.

As JediJayBird and I were talking about last night - this is an OK piece, but would have been 1,000,000 times better if the fire would light up!!!

This figure is the epitome of what exclusives should be IMO. A figure that I don't care if I ever have.  ;D

Much like the Disco Trooper:

I know I got their exclusive Obi Wan and Bail w/ babies figures for $4.77 each, but Target charges 12.99!!  I am definitely not buying this from Target they can go to hell.

Yeah but did the Twin Sets come with a $.05 plastic Clamshell with a sticker on it? Nope.

That'll be $12.99 please
