WOW!!! This just looks like one of the best GG I have seen in minifig scale  :cry_happy: . You really capture the feel of the GG in this MOC and looks like you get all his position combat angle right  :thumbup: . Also very clever use of paper in the head and the BD head  :tongue:  :thumbup: .

Awesome work!

This is the best figure, I've seen from your work. It look's better than the one from TLC.
I love especially your head-method, this is really great, to turn around a normal battledroid head.
Thank's for showing this with us!

Yet again you astonish me with your amazing work on droids. If only TLC made those parts in white then it would be complete! Great work again :thumbup: .

This one's my favorite. Who knew you could pull it off? By the way, what material is the cape?

Keep up the good work!  :thumbup:

These are all awesome creations, but Grievous is my favourite  :thumbup: Truly creations worthy of frontpaging too.

Well done

This is incredible.  LEGO should be taking notes.  The real Grievous figure is laughable compared to this.

Great MOC. I was just checking out the minifig index and saw TLC's version, as others have said, your version is really well done!

Thank You
Thank You

I am so happy to see all of your replies on this one...
Especially regarding to saying this one is better than the TLC's one.

Why I build this one?
1. I love the figure of GG!!! too stunning...almost can't walk but fight rigorously
2. TLC version is a bit too "funny"...GG is not like that...(I think)

So I am so happy now
I have a GG (my GG) now :sweet:
Thanks again for your appreciation

Keep up the good work!  :thumbup:

The material of the Cape is simply paper (white printing paper)

the head addition is not just paper
It is a sandwich of "masking tape + paper + masking tape"
"masking tape" is already in pale-yellow (tan) color with texture on it...
I used this tape to do the Magna Guard's head also... :grin:
Then cut the shape you needed and addhesive to the back of the droid head...

Interesting thing is that the original droid head has two nuts at the "ear" location
in this GG, these two nuts are exactly helpfull to support the "paper" at lower portion of the head
and make the paper bend naturally symmetrically.

The best minifig version of General Grievous that I have ever seen!  :thumbup:

Very nice and creative use of the battle droid.

OMG Incredible! I am totally amazed how simple and effective this is. Thought it would take you some time to come up with a design, but you outdid yourself this time  :thumbup:
