OMG!!!!! I absolutely love the cape.

I'm looking forward to this piece more than any other.

The first thing I thought when I saw Episode 3 and Grievous put the lightsabers in his cloak was, "Sideshow had better put those little holder thingies in his cape..." I am glad that they did. I am impressed with the quality of it.

I agree, agent. Now to save the money to be able to afford it. :(

I like it! Now all we need is some 1/4 scale lightsabers to put in the cloak. Was the lining that bright a red though?

Looks really nice, just not a big fan of the character. :dunno

ditto, the cape really adds a lot to the exclusive but I'm not sure if I will keep my order.

Just think how he'll look once his sabers light up like Vader and Obi-Wan.

Do Grievous' sabers light up? It doesn't mention that in the description...

no, just wishfull thinking. Don't think it will be possible with those open arms.

Maybe you're right. :(

He's going to look funny with the others if he doesn't light up, though.

The reason that Grievous's sabers don't light up, is because his 4 arms have to be removed for shipping purposes. He comes in 6 pieces total (4 arms, body, and base). Obviously, it is not possible to wire a figure for electronics that comes in so many pieces.

RichardW

I realize it will be feasibly impossible because of that, just disappointed that he won't light up like the others.

I'm sure it would be possible to get the sabers to light - but is it worth adding $100-200 to the price of the piece?

We gave it a lot of thought, and after a little R&D, it proved impossible. Adding the necessary wiring through the wrists compromised the stability - meaning too many would break and end up as a 'post-duel with Obi-Wan' version.

'post-duel with Obi-Wan' version

:lol That's great!

My only complaint is that there are not any light sabers in the holders inside the cape. Other than that looks great.

RichardW

I agree. That would be a nice addition.

Seems like the inside of the cape is a little too bright. I agree though that the cape really adds a lot to this piece.

I agree,

It is too bright.

I guess you could always put in a couple of the .45 scale lightsabers in his pockets. I'm sure the cape is a little bright due to the lighting used to take the pic. I like it. :)

dstephan

The .45 are twice the size they should be, would look a tad awkward I'd expect.

And thanks for clarifying on the sabers Brant!

Now about Elektra's base....

Of course, he is holding four lightsabers, so you can assume he just took them out of those pockets. And when he took the sabers away from Anakin and Obi-Wan in the beginning of Episode III, he had empty slots in his cape holders to put them in. Apparently he likes to leave a few empty when he leaves the house in the morning.

Looks really good with the cape, though I may end up cancelling this one. I'm not going to have the room and I don't really care for the character.

The cape certainly is wild! As for the lightsabers not lighting up, I never would have expected it to be feasible at that price anyway.

A cool feature would have been to have his arms spinning the lightsabers just like in the movie. Or a sound chip which makes him cough, lol.

As for no lightsabers in the cape, well they're not the hardest thing in the world to make, especially as only part of them would show, so not much detail would be required and I'm sure there are millions of Star Wars figures that have similar-sized lightsabers that could fit.

This is going to be a fantastic figure!

Umm... Is everyone forgetting that there are no lightsabers in his cape because he is using 4 of them? He takes them out of the cape in order to fight in the film.

I think the cape is the right color of red. I also think the design on the grey rear part of the cape is very cool. I would assume that the cape is removable as well? I can't wait for this piece!

Awesome design on the back of the cape! :rock

Thanks Brant! Alas!

BUT the NEXT question...
Does his 'Rib Cage' open to reveal his organs????:D

There's your exclusive version :)
