he should definately come with a lightsabre.

I was thinking Samuel L...:lol

Yeah, something up with that headsculpt. It's like Yoda crossed with Frankenstein. Def needs a bit of a tweak before release.

And where's the saber - you'd think that would be the obvious reveal pic for this?

Billy Ray
12-30-2012, 02:50 AM
Hmmm...not really digging it. If he does come with a second (better) headsculpt, then maybe.

Not bad. Not great. Needs as 2nd HS and a lightsabre. I'll be picking it up though.

12-30-2012, 03:55 AM
I'll need to see what accessories come with this before deciding. Considering the figure will be pretty damn small, either the price should be correspondingly small, or it needs to come with some amazing accessories. Oh, and a headsculpt that doesnt make him look frickin bored ****less.

Not sure why they sculpted the hair. It looks bad and not wispy.

Leave the hair unsculpted and pack strands from a cotton ball instead, for us to glue on.

If this happens, will definitely get this at retail. If not, I'll wait and try to pick it up later on the cheap. Will eventually be in my collection, tho...

I think I can pass on this one.

Vonhahn
12-30-2012, 09:27 AM
I think he looks good, but I agree that the price for a small figure needs to be right for me to buy. I like my battle droid commander but I feel he cost too much for what he is. I hope this Yoda doesn't turn out like that....

Khonsu70
12-30-2012, 09:37 AM
Oh, a couple things:

After looking at the picture a little more closely, I'm pretty sure it the way the eyes are painted, and not the sculpt itself, that's making this seem "off"/bored/stoned. That would be an easy fix for SSC.

Yeah, that's absolutely a Kashyyyk trooper off to the side! So this is not only a reveal for Yoda, it's also a teaser for the trooper. 2013 might be a good year for Star Wars!

Darth Mitchell
12-30-2012, 09:43 AM
I'm happy with my TESB Yoda.
I'm curious what kind of accesoires he will have. Maybe his floating chair from AOTC or his council Chair.

it looks good, but like most, since it's PT, it's an easy pass. Unless I find it for around $25.

jedibear
12-30-2012, 09:49 AM
Hey V, how'd your BD Commander look? Did it have a mis-painted eye? Just curious...had to send mine back because of it...

Anyway...back on topic here....

Here's a look at what Hasbro offered a few years back....

http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l597/jedibearvt/YODA-CHAIR-02.jpg

...wonder is Sideshow will offer the Council Chair with this? The "floating chair" could be cool too...

I'd be pretty happy with it...considering we'll more than likely end up with both sooner or later...

Anyway...looking forward to that complete gallery on New Year's Day...

This looks just...bad. The head sculpt is way off, as many have pointed out. My main problem is the ears, which are totally off.

The brows are too far forward though I'm sure when they show pics of this Yoda in fighting poses it'll look more interesting. Sideshow needs a new photographer.

I hope it's the lighting cause I was really hoping for the definitive action Yoda from the prequels.

Kinda creepy looking. And I really don't need a Yoda in my collection- unless he's say $49.99.

the kashyakk trooper is part of the film still theyre using as a background, gree is the ssc gree figure

I was just going to point that out. If anything I'd say the fact that they used a screenshot of the badly done CGI trooper in the movie instead of a real figure indicates that we *won't* see a Kashyyyk trooper for quite some time.

Its a SSC special..take an existing figure and slap some paint on it..in this case..a new head... he looks awful..happily pass..but I am excited to see the ridiculous price they ask for him..I hope it is like $120 so I can get another laugh.

Which is good because:

1. TPM pot smoking Yoda is universally hated

and

2. No longer exists as of 2011

Good move on SSC's part to include that look as part of the sculpt. :duh

Gipetto0812

I wonder it that reveal sculpt is the same as this one showed a long while ago b/c if it is, the paint is really messing with a good sculpt

Looks like the same sculpt to me. The lighting in the reveal shot isn't helping.

But did you notice in that sculpt shot...? There are three more heads laying down on the table. Having worked on several prototypes for Sideshow, there usually is only two copies, at most three, but there's four heads there.

In that scene, Yoda looks... different... from how he looks in the preview.

12-30-2012, 03:54 PM
I'm excited to add it to my Prequel collection. I'm really happy with the sculpt. Looks as if they captured the ROTS Yoda that has that half smirk/half serious look when he draws his saber on Sidious in his Senate office.

Of course if Sideshow would like to offer me a couple different head sculpts to capture all of Yoda's facial nuances, I'm o.k with that too!

I agree about the clothes, mainly the cloak. It looks waaay more like the number Hasbro had on their PT Yoda and not at all like cloak Yoda had on in the PT. It needs clean lines and should drape well - the one in that picture falls short...

Really just shows how bad the clothing is on this. Wrong material, colour. It actually looks like they took the Tusken Raider robe and cut it to fit Yoda.

It just reminds me of the old Hasbro one. Except that one had a better head.

:dunno Because someone more talented than you or I, i.e Frank Oz had to shove their hands up his *** to operate him. If your referring to the classic Stuart Freeborn puppet, given your expertise in all things par and "sub" par, you might have known that 20+ years caused the original latex to detoriate and again, people more talented than you or I created a physical updated muppet because they hadn't figured out how to computer model Yoda at that time. MOHO, it was a nice nod to the originals but that doesn't really matter to film aficionados does it???

I'm defensive? I asked you a question.

But I believe I understand your point now. Rip on Lucas for his excessive CGI but praise the the new CG TPM Yoda? Well there's good CG and bad/pointless CG just like there's good and bad puppets. ESB puppet: good. TPM puppet: bad. CG can be very good but most of it in the PT is bad. I don't think anyone who has problems with the PT has ever argued otherwise.

Uhh...how many different ways would you like me to phrase it?

I won't argue...waste of time. I will, however strongly disagree with you on what makes something good or bad. You have your opinion and thats all it is. No different than mine. However, you shouldn't pass yourself off as an authority on what makes said "thing" good or bad without being able to quantify it.

For the record...back in 1980 "everyone" thought that muppet was ****

Uhh...how many different ways would you like me to phrase it?

I won't argue...waste of time. I will, however strongly disagree with you on what makes something good or bad. You have your opinion and thats all it is. No different than mine. However, you shouldn't pass yourself off as an authority on what makes said "thing" good or bad without being able to quantify it.

For the record...back in 1980 "everyone" thought that muppet was ****
too!

Actually I was making a joke about the lack of popularity of the TPM Yoda and how awkward it would be if SSC actually based a portion of this sculpt on him but you seem to be quite fired up about so we can let it go.

Obviously by "universally" I didn't mean literally everyone on the planet. I'm sure the guy who Lucas commissioned to make the TPM puppet and assumedly his immediate family liked it, and now of course you. So great, there's like five of you that thought it was decent. I still don't think SSC would want to go there.

You see there..."obviously" in your thinly veiled attempt to be clever, you had to dig at the guy's family. Typical hateboy script. Anyway, your narrow view and elitist opinion fall on deaf ears. I'm sure you'll ring up Mr. Oz and tell him he's just one of the many mindless hordes that facilitate the "yes" man attitude that Lucas surrounds himself with.

I wish Yoda's face sculpt was made of 70's silly-putty so I could stretch it and then let dry to correct facial expression. :lol

But seriously my beef with it is the nose needs to be smaller and the head width longer with tad smaller ears. Nuff said. The productions pic, seen it and wish it "was" the same one.

I'd also like to say this, it looks like they used the old head and sculpted a younger face on the front. js.

That would be a great start. Thing I don't get is this: SSC does a reveal, and within 24 hours, collectors have created a side-by-side comparison pic and a laundry list of the details that are off. Why doesn't SSC hire someone do this in-house before it gets to the point of the reveal? :dunno

I think it comes down to the fact that they just don't care that much. It's Yoda, they know it will sell out, so why bother spending the money to improve the figure? Especially when they can make improvements later for another figure and make even more money.

Unless everybody put's their money where their mouth is and stops buying these sub-par efforts, there wil be no real effort put into an easy sell figure.

They save the effort for figures like Hammerhead I guess.

Edit ~ Then again, Hammerhead is perfect for SS, he has no face to screw up

About the same time I stopped painting for them, they started doing open edition sizes. If something sells out, but there's still a demand, they just backorder it now. That helps collectors not miss out on anything, but it also killed the need for people to buy stuff right away, causing it to sell out before it even shipped, driving the market into a "get it while you can" frenzy. Hence, stuff now remains in stock.

Yoda looks so damn intimidating in that picture haha, like some kind of gangster. Another SSC sculpt that is well done, but lacks observation (and if it is an amalgamation of diff yodas - why!?!? silly idea), Wish they'd gear it up, can only be something internal to the company as to why its happening so often. Would take just the same effort to do it right as it did to do it like this!

Considering it's the same body as the OT Yoda, the knees have articulation and he will be able to be seated in the proper pose. Just remove the feet and hope the robe covers them.

Might sound strange. but I think yoda should have come with a troubled meditation headsculpt. for example the expression in ep3 at kashyyyk and the spacestation where he has his eyes closed.

The normal headsculpt does look off to me, he kinda looks bored and angry.
I dont think its a problem with the face, but more or less the eye expression.

AGREED! This thing looks weird. Maybe the factory will fix it for them!
I'll roll the dice on a hundred and see if they do!

Not my cup of tea, but I do like that Sideshow put in a nice bit of effort to include the chairs and extra sculpt. Not a bad set.

the HS definately needs work.maybe it comes with 2 hs??
he should definately come with a lightsabre.

I have yet to see the pictures but I hope he does come with a light sabre. Right now I have him holding a Maul one sided saber.

much much much better !!! :rock:rock:rock

After my GF seen the pictures. She said how about you buying it and giving me back my Santa Yoda. He has a Sith look to him. Her Birthday is coming but so I see me ordering two of them.

I have to say I think she is right. He does look a little piss off.

Sculpt is terrible. Thanks for making my New Year's resolution to stop buying from Sideshow.

Ya right!!!!! If that is the case you can buy a new car with the money you save or a house.

Why not use a clear post for the floating chair?

It doesn't matter, I'm not sold on this offering. Although the second head sculpt looks a lot nicer than the head in the first promo photo. But even that one looks like Archie Bunker! :)

I have some clear posts. This should be something easy to mod. But yes your right it would have been nice to make it clear without having to mod it.

I was on the fence about buying this guy but now that I have seen the accessories and extra sculpt I am diving off the fence. It isn't perfect but I am sold on getting this. The only thing that would make this better is an unlit saber but that's a minor issue for me.

TA, and eBAy will have them forsale. Yes it would have been nice as all the rest come with both of them.

Not within a bulls-roar of looking like Yoda. Terrible, ugly head sculpts... BUT, great value for money with all the accessories.

You guys obviously saw the PF Yoda & Clone? The face sculpt on that was perfect! I don't get how they can be so all-over-the-shop on the representations :(

Because it's Sideshow. If they aren't pissing off the fans, they aren't doing their job.

Very nice! Pretty impressive set considering the price. My only criticism is that I think his skin color is too dark.

I never did like the way Yoda looked in the PT. But this figure looks to have a pretty decent likeness.

I might grab one. For $99, you get a decent amount, and as much as I prefer the OT, seeing Yoda in AOTC duel Dooku was imprinted on me when I was 8, regardless of how silly it is now.

I just think this looks terrible. Bad sculpt, bad paint colors (why the dark green skin and almost iridescent-looking chair?) I sincerely hope they make some changes before the release. I know sometimes they do, so please SS, reevaluate Yoda!

SilentSurfer
01-01-2013, 09:22 PM
Wish they had gone with a clear pole below the hover chair. The black figure stand bar makes it look like a regular chair again.

I like the accessories and that it comes with another head, but I'm still not seeing the Yoda I wish it were. I was anxious for a great prequel action Yoda, but this aint it for me. Sculpt, proportions, and clothes just add up to too many things not quite right.

Stanlore

The chair looks nice but the sculpts are terrible.

The relaxed sculpt looks like a Gnome or a goblin/elf hybrid thing.

The stern sculpt kinda looks like an angry cigar smoking midget stunt double. (No offense intended towards midgets.)

I justs calls its likes i sees its.

So it's either angry Earnest Borgnine or contemplative Bill Cosby. I wish this thing came with at least one YODA head sculpt. This looks nothing like Prequel Yoda. Members of his species, sure. And I was super excited for this until the pics surfaced.

I plan on buying and extra one and modifying it but its just a shame its not included. Who knows by production they may fix the sculpt and add an unlit saber.

Pretty good value at $100, like the second head a bit more.

Here's the old Hasbro 12" version (Saga Ultimate - 2002) of the same figure for comparison...

Just wish they could fix the sleeves for his outer robe... (Easy Fix by SSC)

They should have gone with a clear pole as well for the chair. Oh well. :(

I think they did a commendable job to make this version desirable to those who got the ESB Yoda. Two headscupts, two chairs, lots of hands, the lightsaber... a very nice package.

But ultimately it's a pass for me. I'm happy with the original and I mostly pass on PT stuff.

I'm not digging the head sculpt right now. I don't think its the paint either. His brow and nose look too deep set. I was hoping for something better that what we got with the GG, PF, or koto vs Palps yoda. They had the right idea on those. On this? Not so much.

Ill get it anyway because of the outfit and accessories and try to find or bash a different head.

I mentioned this to a mate, it won't look like its hovering without a clear stand.

SSC need to take note of the little things that make the big difference.:gah:

I was digging through some photos and noticed that there are some great sculpts out there. SS just made this kinda meh. I like all the accessories and have been waiting for a good episode 2/3 yoda to do battle with Sidious but this is just a little disappointing.
GG got it right.

I saw on sirstevesguide that SS will have this up for preorder today between 2 and 3pm. Exclusive is the holocron and it doesn't look like it lights up at all. Just painted.

Generally new figures just go up with the newsletter... which is in that time frame. I wouldn't worry about sell outs either since they no longer announce the ES size until a couple weeks have passed.

I'll go ahead and get the exclusive, even though I don't recall Yoda ever holding a holocron (or at least one looking like that) in the films :huh

01-03-2013, 09:23 AM
I trust it will look better in hand... the paints seem a bit heavy handed and the lighting is not very flattering.

Anyway, given I have 7 PT Jedi, this Yoda is a no-brainer :lol
