My Collection: Clone Wars Movie: Anakin vs. Dooku

Count Dooku: This is one of the most poorly executed figures in the Clone Wars line. The sculpting of Dooku's head is pretty good, but he comes with a heavy plastic cape, completely restricting the movement of his arms, and throwing his body off balance. This could be corrected be bending his ankles and knees a bit, but he has no articulation in his legs, and because the cape hold his arms low, he can't stretch them forward to balance himself. The figure needs a stand to function with the cape on. The articulation in his arms, however, do allow him to strike a few poses with his cape off. I wish this figure came with a cloth cape like the version that comes with a speeder bike, or a cape made with lighter plastic, like the type uses for Padme's purple cape.

Anakin Skywalker: This was the first Clone Wars figure that I ever bought. Anakin came in the first wave that I picked up at a midnight madness sale a few weeks before the movie debuted. He holds his lightsaber pretty good with one hand, but not as well with both. The sculpt of the head is pretty accurate. Unfortunately there is no knee or ankle articulation, but the arms are adequately jointed. When I first got it, this figure seemed slight to me, but now I'm used to the thinner Clone Wars style.
