If the img goes down, tell me and I'll attach it. He looks all plastic like and weird because this is just his generated model, without any "skin" and such yet.

Excellent! But if this is like Ep. 2 we won't see him until 1:30 into Ep. 3! :p

he looks quite cool, but i can't see how this grievous is the slayer of so many jedi... he looks like he would break if someone sat on him.

I'm not so sure about him, but i'll wait till i see him in action until i pass any judgement. He looks more like a glorified battle droid than a general of massive armies. I don't know...

I read somewhere that he was half-droid, half-alien.

Well, it's only really a spoiler if you haven't seen this guy plastered everywhere else...though the pic is big... :p

I'd assume the introduction of his character as a half alien half droid has something to do with vader becoming half/part droid in the movie as well

Personnally, it looks like a pathetic attempt to create a new "super villain". Hasn't impressed me yet...he doesn't look THAT evil.

The things on the side of his head look too much like the fins at the back of Jabba's Sail Barge and skiffs.

Hard to take him seriously after you make that association...

Other than that I think he looks kinda cool. It reminds me of the kind of things I used to imagine the Star Wars universe might produce when I was a kid waiting for ESB to be made.

It makes me a bit sad in a way... finally movie making technology can produce some of the things I might have imagined Star Wars might be,.. just in time for the last movie of the series to be made.

That makes no sense at all. Then what you think it might be, is different than what it actually is. It's been what it is.

Christopher Lee was a great actor to use... the problem was he had no character for the movie! Dooku had ZERO character development! We saw him like an hour and a half into the movie and all we heard about him before that was in the prologue! Why would you cast Lee, who commands so much attention on screen because his voice is so powerful and give him nothing to talk about? What was his motive? VERY disappointing. So many people left that movie saying: "WTF?"

What I'm saying is that I had all these wierd ideas about the rest of the Star Wars universe might be like in my imagination when I was a kid, what type of other wild characters might inhabit it, when I was waiting for the next movie to come out... but what Lucas could pull off with the technology at the time had to be a little more traditional (ie: guys in costumes, muppets, and stop-motion puppets) so I was always just a little disappointed that it wasn't even weirder than it was. At the time I was like: Ewoks?!?!! Come on!!! Is that really the best they could do?
Now that it's possible to make these types of things real on screen, that there are no limits to what technology will allow, there aren't going to be any more movies really exploring the universe. I'm more than a little sad that this is (offically) the last Star Wars movie anyway.
One of the things I always imagined when I was a kid was a sleek, evil robot. (Especially after seeing the bounty hunter lineup in ESB.) That's probably why this character appeals to me. I really wished they could incorporate an evil, killer robot into the story somehow.
Unfortunately, before he filmed episode 1, Star Wars robots were slow moving and clunky, simply because they were guys in robot suits,.. or done with whatever remote controls were available. And the droid army robots were more goofy than scary. The 2nd generation battle droids introduced at the end of AOTC were better, but were essentally mindless drones. What I've always wanted to see was an intellegent, crafty, scheming 'bot... like an evil version of 3P0... but fast and deadly, not slow and clunky.

I know... and it's pretty sad indeed...

I mean, we almost see more of Darth Maul than him. That's not great!

At least Christopher Lee had more then two lines like Darth Maul...
