OTHER Count Dooku Figures
(Clone Wars, The Clone Wars Collection, 2008)
Count Dooku was one of the main villains in the prequel star wars trilogy, and he is heavily featured in the Clone Wars Animated TV Show. This action figure is based on the animated appearance. When looking at this figure it's easy to tell that Hasbro has done a lot of things right here. The face sculpt is dead on compared to the movie counter part and the accessories included all make sense in that they were all used by Count Dooku in the show. Hasbro included an Asajj Ventress Hologram which looks just like Asajj Ventress in the TV Show (pretty remarkable considering that the hologram is just a bit bigger than a penny). They've also included an extra right hand with lightning bolts attached to it. The regular right hand can be swapped out easily by just pulling it out of the socket. Count Dooku also came with a removable cloak and his signature red-curved lightsaber (non-removable blade). The great thing about this Count Dooku figure is that it can hold the lightsaber tightly, the Ventress hologram sits tightly in his hand as well, and even with the lightning hand attached (and the figure having more weight in the front), it still manages to stand straight. If you have problems positioning him or he keeps falling over, you could make use of the peg holes in his feet and place him on an action stand. The only critique about this figure would be that Count Dooku does not have any articulated knees or ankles and is somewhat locked-in in his pre-defined stance. However, the Count looks great, has a nice paint application, and the accessories are good.
