Anyone notice that the Dooku Deluxe figure on at the Toy Fair was labeled as Count Dooku, but in other places it has been listed as Darth Tyranus? I know they did it that way because it would be a spoiler but would be nice to get my hands on the one that says Dooku before they change the label.

I noticed that as well. It's a neat looking figure. I' don't care much about the label difference cause I'm gonna bust him open!

The deluxe figure is pretty cool, can't wait to pick one of these up and give those force flipping bases a whirl. :D The Dooku/Tyranus in the basic 4" figures looks even better and more like Christopher Lee. I thought the LOTR's figure of him looked like him, this one blows that totally away. Man, April 23rd and May 16th seem way to far away.

MTFBWY and HH!!

If you've seen the carded picture he is titled as Darth Tyranus and not Count Dooku :) It doesn't really matter since they are the same people :p

GNT,

I know they are the same people, just thought it was interesting how they wanted to keep Tyranus a secret at the Toy Fair so they had it labeled as Count Dooku. Thats all. :)

I'm gonna get the deluxe figures and see just how many places they can duel besides those platforms. On the fridge, on a chair, on the walls... on the car. :D

How can you ne so SURE they're the same guy? After all, it turns out palpatine and Darth Sidious weren't the same guy. Really, I swear I read it somewhere's.........

You may have read that. Though Lucas himself confirms that Palpatine and Sidious are the same person in the Episode 1 DVD director's commentary track.

I actually had a "WARNING:this post contains sarcasm" disclaimer on my last post, but I erased it, thinking it unnecessary. That's what you get for assuming stuff,I guess. No, seriously,though, I was surprised when TPM came out that a couple of SW fan buddies of mine missed the connection TOTALLY, then when I found out that there was some sort of debate over the whole "is he or isn't he" TO THIS DAY it just sort of flabbergasted me, is all. I thought it was an actual fact, as you have confirmed, Chewie. I'll try and tone down the edge, maybe if Team Canada gets whipped tonight I'll be slightly less "wry".

Well its hasn't been confirmed in the film that Palpatine is Sidious,so untill its been confirmed in the FILM its just pure EU :)

Unlike Sidious,Dooku doesn't hid behind a cloak and the same figure has been labeled with both names so I'm pretty sure they are the same :)

I like how he is COUNT Dooku (since he played a Vampire).

Anyone else notice that Jango is supposed to lose his head in this and Lee was in "Sleepy Hollow?" with... Iam Mc(whatever) and Ray Park? :D

I think Deluxe Dooku is probably gonna be the best deluxe figure released. I can't wait to do flipping duels against Obi & Dooku, should be interesting.

And I'm probably the last one who thinks that Palpatine is not Sidious.

He could come with a pack in 3rd nipple. You could apply it to his chest and it would be like those suction cup thingies.
Nice....
Theyd call it "Deluxe 3rd nipple Count Scaramanga Dooku."

And why not throw in a Golden Gun, just to complete a scary package!

The name you're looking for is Ian McDiarmid. He plays a little known character in ROTJ called Emperor Palpatine. Ring any bells?;)
