I really hope that Sideshow has plans for a Yoda in the very near future. I would love to see a 2-pack of AotC and ESB versions. Complete will all the nice little accessories that would be appropriate with each version. Would anybody else be interseted in buying this set? Post you thoughts and hopefully we can use a Jedi mind trick to get the ball rolling on these figures. :rotfl

I have all the OT Yoda I want with the Medi-Yoda. But I would welcome a PT Yoda for sure.

I like the idea of another 2-pack figure set with PT and OT Yoda and loaded with accessories. It worked great with Palpatine/Sidious, and it's an easy way to get both out of the way in one shot.

The Medi Yoda is great for what it is, but we need a highly articulated 1:6 scale Yoda!

Ready. The Medi one looks way to frail and scrawny.

Yoda would be a great 1/6th figure from SS. I like the idea of getting 2 versions in one pack. An AOTC version and an ESB version.

as cool as it would be for a 2-pk, it won't happen. SS will release one version at a time in order to capitalize on $$$ I would love to see a PF of the classic ESB Yoda, now that would rock! :rock

I would love a PT Yoda. It is one of my most requested figures. Because I have the Medi Yoda, I am not as interested in an OT figure of him.

Maybe they could pack a pt Yoda with Yaddle...

The Medi Yoda is very cool. I finally got one and am very pleased with it. My only problem is that it doesnt stand at all with support of the cane. I really want to see an articulated one that can stand, sit or whatever you want it to do. I really hope this is in the works. Come on SS don't let me down!!

considering they've got to engineer a whole new body for him, there is NO WAY that's going to happen.

HOWEVER, sideshow said in an earlier Q&A that they were going to be doing More Specialized bodies, including extremely small ones starting next year, so I'd say yoda's definitely coming sooner than expected.

Nah, I want another Luke or Han next.......:duh

Just kidding give me any Yoda at this point.:chew

I would easily pay $200 for an ESB Yoda that is fully articulated, came with multiple head sculpts that demonstrated his various facial expressions that made the puppet seem so alive on screen, and a Luke camping set that included the tray of food and flashlight and a small tree stump.

I think everyone would. I just need to go and buy the Medi Yoda.

I wouldn't. I want just Yoda. No interest in the dio stuff. $200 is way too much for even all that you mentioned, in my opinion.

If they do make it a 2-pack I'll start taking offers for the PT one right now.

I would want a Yoda. Currently have the kotobukiya and the gentle giant bust. Both I find awesome but not able to articulate..

ortiz344
07-01-2009, 09:00 PM
Maybe the better question is...how much would you pay for a yoda ? Yoda i believe is more popular than the hobbits but id say his price would kill him at the going rates (70-80)?
Its hard enough paying 80 for a full 12" fig, i cant see the masses doing that for one half that size, even if its yoda...

JustinLuck
07-01-2009, 09:39 PM
So how many other than me would like to see multiple heads and full articulation?

Darth Madden
07-01-2009, 09:50 PM
Well, seeing as ESB yoda only really needs to raise his arm I don't really care much about that but an extra head or two would be cool.

JustinLuck
07-01-2009, 09:59 PM
Well, as I remember, he did move around quite a bit for a hand puppet. His facial expressions drove home most of the realism, but the body motions helped sell it as well.

mywii
07-02-2009, 12:49 AM
full articulation able you to pose him in various position with his light saber. I like a head with the stern face when he duels with Count...

Yeah, but if its cheaper to make him like Jabba rather than with a "real" body underneath then I am ok with that.

I'm ready for an OT and PT Yoda... I'm very happy with the repainted Medicom version I have from Darkartist, but I think the sculpt could have been better. As EF mentioned he's kind of too frail looking.

JustinLuck

Let me phrase it another way. How many think that the PT Yoda warrants articulation? And if so, they might as well use that same body for ESB Yoda, as it will spread production costs.

I actually would buy a Yoda PF.

This has always been my favorite image of Yoda. I would kill for a PF like this.

I agree. I'll take minimal articulation in a trade off for a lower price.

PT Yoda would benefit from added articulation based on the fact that he actually fights in two of the films. But I wouldn't need 30 points of articulation in a 3 1/2 inch figure. Basic articulation would suffice. ESB Yoda would basically have two renditions:

1. The pose below, posted by Darth Waller.

2. Eyes closed, one arm outstretched, as he lifts the X-wing out of the swamp muck.

Medi Yoda is perfect for my OT line, but I'd like to see an AOTC version with Dooku.

Hell yeah, I don't buy many Sideshow 12" figures (I only have 4) but this is one I would definitely get. He's iconic.

I want a Yoda PF, except I think it'd be better if they made it in like 1:2 scale instead of 1:4 so its technically not a PF I guess.

the only problem is, basic articulation in yoda, like jabba, sets a prescident for sideshow. Limiting the articulation on one means they would likely do it on both, whereas making a nicly articulated "mini-body" and using it for multiple releases ( Yoda, Wicket, Ugnaughts, jawas, etc) means a lower price overall. A 1-off body, that is static, like jabba would likely be 120ish, whereas a recyclable body would probobly be in the 70-80 range.
Personaly, I'm not too miffed on Price, and am not enterested in saving money. if that were the case, I'd just stick with the Hasbro one. I want the best representation of OT yoda in 1/6th scale, with articulation to match. He needs to e able to sit, stand, point, sulk, fight, even do handstands if i so wished. PT, OT, dosn't matter. if all I wanted were your suggested poses, I'd just get the medi, It can more or less do those.

No, sorry, Yoda needs his 30-40 points of articulation inorder to get the expressiveness of seeming "alive" that the puppet had. no Statue will EVER beable to capture that, no matter how "realistic" they look.

Hothwampa

I would want to see full articulation with multiple heads as suggested. I would want him in saber duels or poseable in various Yoda ways. If the AotC one came with the Jedi Council chair that would be a bonus. I can see SS making this figure in the very near future. I'd even go as far to say that they have a prototype somewhere already done. I'm a Yoda fanboy and can't wait for this to come out. I do like the enviroment idea posted but like to see it sold as an optional enviroment and not come with the figure.

Probably be a 2 pack with dagobah luke. And you know what, I am OK with that.
