Sideshow Collectibles Commander Gree Review
The first review of the new year belongs to one of the most unique of the Clone Commanders. We saw this figure back at Comic-Con last July and he looked good then but really looks even better now. Commander Gree has arrived in collections now, and is a figure that Star Wars fans should really make an effort to get. Take time to watch the review and after come chat us in the Commander Bly Thread.
