I just ordered a Count Dooku from TRU and was wondering, is the Saber blade removable?

Also is the hilt metal?

No, the blade on the Saga Count Dooku's Lightsaber is not removable, the whole thing is one solid plastic piece. I think they decided, because of the small piece that sticks out near the blade would easily snap off it would be best to do it all as solid plastic. Also the curve could have presented a problem. It looks like the 2003 Darth Tyranus figure's saber blade is removable though. :)

I, for one, am glad it is not removable. I hate it when pegs break, and Dooku's saber is very unique, and it would be hard to replace the blade. Bespin Vader's is too thin, etc.. I don't like removable blades.

Double we'll ever see a metal version of Dooku's saber though, it's just got too many unique details for the way they do their metal hilts.

Oh well, with a removeable blade and if they tweak the figure and don't pollute it with gimmicks, then it should be the best of the two. :cool:

I really don't see a point to the removeable blades unless there is a hilt that lets you attach it to the Jedi's belt.

I really hope that the 2003 Darth Tyranus has a removable blade and the hilt is able to attach at his belt... That would be just wonderful but I think its too much to be asked!!

Cheers...
:D:D:D:D

i would just like dooku with his metal hilt and a place on his belt so he can have it handy! that's what all the jedi should, but never will, have.

Even then I don't see the point, although you are right, they could at least attach to the belts. What Hasbro should do is stop wasting time and money on (some of) the gimmicks, and spend a little extra on metal hilts, magnets in the belts, and including one handle and one ignited saber with each saber-wielding figure.

The Dooku figure would look really cool with the saber hilt hanging from his belt.

How many points of articulation does Dooku have?

he has 7 points in total although (arms, legs, waist, neck and right hand) but the leg-articulation is pretty useless since he has his "skirt" and the waist and right arm move together because of the slashing action (squeeze legs and body turns left and right arm slashes down)

Ok, thanks 187-Maul. :)

I just got Dooku today and was wondering, is his right arm suppose to lock into place or is it just like Padme's? If not mine must be broke.

Unfortunately, yours is not broken. It's just like Padme's arm. It stays in the "up" position.

Ok, thanks Sith Lord, glad mine isn't broke, though wish it did lock, he can't reach Yoda with it.

I'm not really troubled by the arm... Its only half as bad as the Padme Arena... The worse detail is probably the cape, there isn't anything to hold it down to his neck or body... It tends to keep falling off... Kind of irritating I must say...

Cheers...

The cape SUPER SUCKS! I like the old Super Power capes better than that!

I don't really have a problem with the cloak, it stays on pretty well on mine
and if you move his right arm enough down until is clicks, it's one "stage" deeper
hope this helps

I just hope that the new Darth Tyrannus does not have the same problem... Please Hasbro... Please take note!!!!!!!!

I've glued the cape on mine, I have 3 of Dooku and I've glued the cape on all 3, it looks so cool, this totally makes this figure so cool :)
