Photos have popped up on eBay of three of the four of the upcoming Revenge of the Sith Sneak Preview action figures featuring General Grievous, General Tarfful, and Tion Medon. All three characters are slated to be in the film, so if you're sensitive to SPOILERS, then be forewarned!
General Grievous is the commander of the Separatist forces first previewed in the last episode of Season 2 of the Clone Wars animated series. While being more machine than man, the Jedi hunter yields a lightsaber with multilimbed aplomb.
As Wookiees reportedly play a prominent role in ROTS, it makes sense that General Tarfful will be part of the sneak preview assortment. The figure features enhanced articulation in the arms and knees and looks particularly fierce and ready for battle.
Tion Medon is one of the new alien characters in Revenge of the Sith. The "helpful alien" is played by actor Bruce Spence, who also played the Mouth of Sauron in Lord of the Rings.
The fourth sneak preview action figure of an astromech droid rounds out the wave (speculated to be Obi-Wan's astromech droid), which is scheduled for release in the beginning of the year. Like previous sneak preview offerings, they're expected to be carded in the 2005 transitional packaging rather than the new ROTS design. Finally, we insert the usual caveat emptor that these have not been officially announced or confirmed by Hasbro.
