Re: Hasbro confirms pre-cyborg Grievous!

I think Hasbro's doing a generally good balance on EU so far...  They're trying to slip in main characters, then things like Fel (and assuming Wedge) in a 2-pack is trying to appeal to people who are on the fence with EU since these figures will "fit in" really nicely with the movie figures...

The Marvel packs I think are their inexpensive way of testing the waters more than them liking the Marvel source material...  The Grievous figure is an odd choice to me, mostly because it's sort of a stand-alone, but he was a pretty popular character in '05 so I guess they're just going with that.  Kind of like the EU Maul figures attempting to cash in on Maul madness.

I like the idea though, I'll enjoy displaying him with hopefully a new Grievous figure someday (till then, the deluxe one will have to suffice).
