Compare this Count Dooku figure
Sith Lord Count Dooku was released in a Target exclusive 2-pack in 2010 together with Jedi Knight Nicanas Tassu. The set was part of the Geonosis Arena Showdown series - which started in 2009 during The Legacy Collection - and by Fall of 2010 consisted of twelve 2-packs totaling 24 figures. The figure is based on Count Dooku's appearance in the Geonosian arena - where he could be seen standing on the balcony - overlooking the battle ground.
Count Dooku is a re-release of the 30th Anniversary Collection (TAC) Count Dooku figure from 2008 with a different - more friendly looking head sculpt. Dooku is super articulated with 14 joints - including ball-joints in the neck - shoulders - elbows - knees and ankles. The wrists - the waist and both legs have swivel joints. Count Dooku stands nicely by himself and won't need help from a stand. He even keeps the balance quite well with the lightsaber raised above the head. The lightsaber - with a non-removable red blade - is a good fit for both hands. The removable soft-goods cape looks fantastic - and feels heavier and much thicker than some of the jedi and sith robes we are used to. It hangs down a little loose - but is an overall good fit.
Count Dooku was given a nice paint application. There is nothing out of the ordinary about it - but the color tones work very well. The figure's sculpt is superb - and especially the head sculpt captures the likeness of Count Dooku very well. The joints feel stiff and the soft-goods skirt and cape look great. All in all - this Count Dooku figure turned out very nicely!
The Jedi Knights rush to Geonosis to rescue Obi-Wan - Anakin and Padme from execution. The Jedi brandish their lightsabers against the Geonosian warriors and the massive army of battle droids - super battle droids and droidekas. All hope seems lost that any Jedi will survive this battle - then Yoda arrives with an army of clone troopers. Although many Jedi are lost that day - others survive this climatic battle that ushers in the Clone Wars.
