This Count Dooku figure was packed together with Dooku's Speeder Bike and was released in October 2009 in the Clone Wars Deluxe line. The figure is based on Count Dooku's appearances in the Clone Wars animated show, and him and his speeder bike could be seen in the Clone Wars movie.
The Count has 14 articulated joints, which most of them are ball-jointed. Thanks to knee and ankle joints the figure stands securely without any additional help from a stand. The cloak fits loosely over the figure and looks quite good overall. Unfortunately the material used is very thin, and when you have light shine at the figure from behind, you can see through all the little gaps in the cloak. The red lightsaber has Dooku's curved hilt and fits well into both of Count Dooku's hands.
The paint application is quite simple, but cleanly applied. The facial sculpt and the overall appearance of the figure is fantastic and looks just like what Count Dooku looked like in the Clone Wars episodes. All in all, this Count Dooku figure is the best version of this character based on the animated Clone Wars show as of fall 2009. It's also quite different when compared to the individually carded Count Dooku figure in terms of joints, color on the belt and accessories.
Count Dooku flies a speeder bike across the Tatooine desert to confront Anakin Skywalker. The young Jedi will ruin Dooku’s plans to win Jabba the Hutt’s support if Skywalker returns with the Hutt’s son alive and well — after the devious Dooku had convinced Jabba that the Jedi had killed the boy.
