Everybody has fond memories of some TV show they watched growing up, and many of these still exist in some format today, like Sesame Street. With the endless parade of merchandise based on Elmo, Ernie, Big Bird, and there's not a lot of figures like this great Kubrick release of The Count. The Count not only showed the world how to count, but he was also an expert during the election coverage of The Daily Show in the election of 2000. Puppet punditry has not changed much since.
While most parts of this figure are the same as all Kubricks with new paint, he has a new cape and a new head-- and what a head it is! While it doesn't sport the foamy texture of an actual puppet, it fits the plastic brick aesthetic just fine and may be one of the finest representations of the character ever released. It's small enough to fit on your desk and if you get bored with it, the interchangable head can be put on any other Kubrick figure allowing you to make your own The Count in Stormtrooper disguise, or perhaps The Count McFly.
Like most Kubricks, the Count was sold in blind boxes so you had no idea what it was you were getting unless you opened the box or bought them pre-identified from a convention or collectible store. The rest of series one of Sesame Street Kubricks included Little Bird, Big Bird, Grover, and Erinie (sans Bert.)
