Count Dooku Premium Format Figure by Sideshow Collectibles


Product Backstory
Once a member of the Jedi Order, Count Dooku's strong political ideals challenged the views of the Council. The strong-willed Dooku felt that the Jedi were weakened by serving an institution as corrupt as the Republic and eventually left the Order, disappearing for years. Dooku re-emerged as a political firebrand fanning the flames of rebellion in the galaxy and supporting the Separatist movement.

Dooku rallied thousands of systems to his cause, building a growing Separatist movement that threatened to split the Republic. Opportunists working in his name would start flashpoints of violence, and it was all the Jedi could do to maintain order in these turbulent times. For all the strife, the Jedi Council refused to believe that Dooku was personally responsible for the worst of the conflicts, insisting that his Jedi training elevated him above such acts.

But behind a veneer of elegant charisma and well-tabled political arguments, Count Dooku had been corrupted by the power of the dark side, seduced by Darth Sidious, the Dark Lord of the Sith. Dooku began recruiting agents for what would eventually amount to the death of the Old Republic. Working as a Sith agent, he contacted the notorious bounty hunter Jango Fett to become the template for a hidden clone army on Kamino, an act that would eventually lead to the Clone Wars and threaten to destroy the Republic.

The Count Dooku Premium Format figure captures every detail of the corrupted former Jedi, standing confidently with his uniquely curved lightsaber drawn. Each piece is individually painted and finished to exacting standards, each with its own unique quality and detail that is the trademark of a handcrafted Sideshow Collectibles Premium Format Figure. The figure is dressed in an incredibly detailed, hand-tailored fabric costume, and the cape is complete with a real metal chain and wired hem for posability. The Count Dooku Premium Format figure is a stunning addition to any Star Wars collection, an outstanding piece for display.
