Please use this thread to talk about the new 6" Count Dooku figure. Thoughts on this figure?

and who doesn't want a great 6" Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing to stand next to each other.
Aw man, I was going to pass on this figure until you said this!

From what can be seen in the blurred image, he does look great, and I am kind of expecting it to be one of the best figures.
A certain buy for sure. Curious about the saber though, as someone said: will the saber have 2 different blades? one for motion and one for stance?
Glam shots are up, two blades for sure. And his cloak looks amazing!

Link please? Can't seem to find these glam shots at any of the usual sites.

Never mind, found them right here at RS! When is the last time that happened, RS beat any of the other sites to the punch?

Anyway, he looks pretty awesome! Not sure how I feel about the "action blade". Hot Toys has been doing them for a while now and I never really use them, but it is great that they are giving us an extra accessory.

Totally smokes the SHF version. BS Dooku is actually wearing clothes, whereas SHF Dooku was suited up in his best chest armor to go BMX biking. Not even a contest.
SHF face is a much better likeness but this one has the better colors. Both cloaks look horrible, at least the BS one isn’t comically wide and lays better but both are ugly soft goods.

Now having seen both I'm glad I kept my Figuarts. It's a much better likeness. And of the 2 crappy capes I'll take the Bandai one. That said, the BS color palette is on point and the non-segmented chest is much better looking. It would have a lot more appeal to me if they included a force gesture hand or ANY hand instead of the action blade. I think they're useless personally. But I do have to say, that for the price...is the Figuarts worth the extra $60? Can't say I definitively think so in this instance

I wonder if the Palpatine force lightning hands will work with Dooku.
Hmm, now you said that and I’m wishing we’d gotten an alternate lightning hand instead of the swoosh saber. The swoosh is a neat idea and I’m sure some folks will make use of it, but for me it’ll go right into a little baggie.

Sweet! Now all we need to round out the Geonosis display a Super Battle Droid, a true Ep I-III Yoda, a re-tooled Amidala (bare midriff), a faceprinted Jango Fett (re-release) and a re-release of the AOTC Phase 1 Clone Trooper. A Geonosian Warrior, Ki Adi Mundi, Shaak-Ti and Aalya Secura would be the icing on the cake.

Is that all we need? 😝😝

Ha, looking at how empty the Black Series PT displays were compared to the OT's at Celebration Chicago, I'd say yes and that's coming from someone who wasn't planning to really get into the 6" line! ;)
With the exception of the Geonosian Warrior all the figures mentioned appeared in at least two feature films and were featured regularly on TCW.
I mean I get it. It's like I said, it's kind of insane HOW long it took to get to Dooku. I mean I get taking you time with like Obi-Wan variants or other age/costume variants...but there's just ONE Dooku look. How did it take THIS long? But I'm not going to lie, my official #1. is Bib Fortuna now. Episode 1 has always been the one to get THE least love of all the times in both the 6'' and 3''. It's the redheaded stepbrother. I mean think of it, we haven't had a new Nute Gunray, Watto, Captain Panaka, Senator Palpatine, young Anakin, Sebulba, Theed Battle Padme, Captain Tarpals, and many others in nearly two decades. Actually for some, it might BE LITERALLY two decades. I don't even like the PT much, but I do like the toys. And we don't have any in 6''. But honestly, of all the 6'' from TPM (and really they're in all the PT but started with TPM) I want most right now? A Destroyer Droid would be AWESOME!
