Some other things I find interesting about Jocasta...
First, she has a skirt piece clearly made for poseability, but it's molded in a fairly stiff plastic so it doesn't move much. It's sliced up the sides though, something they sometimes do or sometimes don't, but something they've done a bit of lately.
Dooku's bust stand is dated this year... I heard some speculation that this figure's been done for a long time for some reason or other, but I don't think so. The bust/stand hasn't been done anyway till 2012.
The bust is awesome. It really is a nice accessory. The holocron is a tad lame though. I appreciate it that it's there, at all, but it's just a plastic cube. There's absolutely no depth or detail sculpted into it. Just paint. I'm ok with it, but it's definitely half-assed. Better than no-assed though.
The bust steals the show for me. I'm far more into it than the figure, haha.
Jocasta has a lot of nice paint aps too. Her eyes are really well done, her lips are pink/make-up looking, her face has either scars painted on or tattoo's. Not sure what they're to be really as I don't know much about her character but I didn't even know she had these markings on her one side of her face. The tunic's detailing is really nice though, and a stand-out.
She's super wrinkly on her hands and neck/face too. I also appreciate the "force" hand she has. There's nice sculpting to her.
Some weird things I noticed though. She's got a traditional "neck post" from the olden days. Like the very olden days. Her whole head/neck plugs into her torso which is a style they've not done for a while. Also no ankle joints, but otherwise heavily articulated. Of course, her stiff skirt piece makes it tough to pose her lower body anyway so I can't say you're missing out on the lack of ankles anyway. She stands fine as-is.
There's sharp cuts at her elbows like Hasbro tries to do sometimes these days, especially with figures that need to hold their hands/arms tighter together. Sometimes they skip this and it really sucks when they do on Jedi, but Jocasta really they gave her the ability for sharp angles with her elbow joints when you're posing her. It's good for the saber poses of course, but looks good pointing at a screen, or using the Dewey Decimal System or whatever.
Lastly she has her softgoods purse which would sort of work actually. You can open it a little, put in there whatever she needs like depends, or peppermints, or a wooden spoon.
Other than the crummy plastic they used on her lower skirt/tunic, which completely inhibits lower body posing, and the lack of a saber hilt (not that she has a place to plug it on her belt anyway), I'm happy ultimately. Like I said, if this was the only way to get say a ground-up Blue Snaggletooth, or Tonnika Sisters, and a nice accessory/set piece with them, I'd be in for this again.
The bust really makes me think how good 2007 was, with all those giant accessories like bar pieces, tables, chairs, drums... Really miss that level of POW in a figure. It'd make $10 almost seem ok if they all came with great, and large accessories.
Anyway, that said, I really wish Hasbro could give us a Jedi Bust and Holocron with every Jedi figure from here on out. I'd just absolutely love that. It's a goofy but appreciated set piece. It makes a boring figure kind of cool.
