A new Yoda figure has shown up on eBay in the Last Jedi packaging.

Anyone going to pick up this figure?

Picked up yoda at midnight force Friday. Nice neutral sculpt and a cool ball jointed neck gives him great personality but the body aside from the arms has almost no movement. All you get are ball jointed feet.

Saw the case tonight. It's street-dated 10/1. Absolute unworkable insanity considering most of the case contains 9/1 figures. Stores are now expected to leave their pegs empty when they have valid product to sell. This will also slow sales and prevent more shipments coming in. And the idea that Walmart employees will remember to bring these out on the right day is laughable as we all know. Just like with 6" wave 2, most stores seem to be ignoring these rolling street dates.

lordtyrannus
09-04-2017, 06:12 AM
For the life of me, I can't understand why, if Hasbro has an October or November release date in mind, they can't wait and ship the figures a little closer to that time. Even if it arrived just after the street date, at least the stores could stock them immediately and they'd ring up at the register. It's insane.

IDK, is there some kind of Star Wars movie DVD promotion coming in October that hasn't been disclosed yet to coincide with the 10/1 figures. I'm just speculation at this point, but it would be a cash cow at this point to issue TFA in exclusive steelbook format like the OT/PT from last time.

And I think rebels season 4 dvd already came out.

It is serendipitous of Obi-wan and Yoda to make an appearance in the line with TLJ figs.

This one is a nice figure for a non-angry prequel Yoda, but I'm not sure they got the correct shade of green. I'm thinking of doing a flat wash on him, particularly on the shiny face and head. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170916/1c2526048ca0c90e3928960f8c85b7fa.jpg

Maybe because of the molded robe. Perhaps if the robe was sculpted with a little furl back, it might make some clearance for the leg articulation. In that event, it might make him look a bit more dynamic than this static pose.

darth_sidious
09-16-2017, 06:44 AM
The cloak is molded closer to the body, but its still flexible isn't it? I don't own it, so I don't know how pliable the plastic is. Either way, the previous Legends 5 POA PT Yoda has articulated legs, so I don't see why the same shouldn't apply here. I'm all for 5 POA, but static legs just don't feel right on a character like this - if it were a Senator or character like Padme with a plastic dress, I could understand it.

Probably because it's the 5POA line, keep it simple here to expand there. Right? In order to give figure B more POA, figure D needs to get less.

This issue doesn't interest me because it doesn't improve anything since his last release. IMO

Just curious why people think he needs leg articulation. Seems like overkill for a very small figure of a character that primarily sits and stands in the movies.

The answer is in your reply - because he often sits in the PT, and if his legs (hips) were articulated, he could be posed seated. Since the cloak is removable, a softgoods cloak could be added, and he would have likely looked great seated in a Council diorama. That was my hope at least - I tend to buy all the Yoda figures, because he is one of my favorite characters.

Looking at the figure again, I see the lack of articulation you guys are talking about lol. I was thinking you guys were jabbering about SA style articulation for his legs.

No, I'm definitely not a SA or bust collector, I like 5 POA, but characters like Yoda should have legs that move - his lower body is sculpted like a tree stump lol.

Thank you! I know my washes aren't perfect, but I like to use a dark version of whatever color I'm washing. The idea (usually, unless something is supposed to be dirty or grimy) is to give each area some highlights in the crevices and shadows, which would actually be a really dark version of the color of the figure in those specific areas. For instance, Yoda's skin is green, so I used a really dark green for the crevices in his face and head. His outfit is brown, so I use dark brown. However, for his jacket, since I wanted to get it that dirty look, I used a light brown for the wash.

Mixture of OT and PT lines:

"Judge me by my size, do you?"
"Use the force."
"Destroy the Sith, we must."
"The dark side I sense in you." (This one makes me want a forcelink Dooku, stat.)

Picked Yoda and Obi from my local target. I should have picked up the extra Yoda for a friend because it was gone the next day. Other than his lower body it is a fun little figure to have displayed and to mess around with the force link. Slowly winning my son over with the forcelink...

Problem with that is Yoda would have to be the PT version. While I'm in favor of such an item, it's too limiting in its offerings. However, if they could pull off an "outside the box" thinking, and put two characters from different eras in the same set. I'd be into that!

I often want a character from one era, but not that era's counterpart. So Gree w/ OT Yoda would appeal to me very much. Ever since the PT though, Hasbro has been unable to make an accurate OT Yoda. All of them have just looked to reminiscent to his PT look.

Expanding on that, I'd be into other 2-pks with that theme. It would cut down on the unneeded single figures in the basic line.

Dang! That's crazy! I picked an extra one when they were out for a custom backpack Yoda.

He was out in the spring of 2015 when there wasn't a lot of figures on the shelves. It was all part of the transition to Disney. The other mission series figures that came out then we're great too. Hoth Luke and Han, ANH Stormtrooper Luke and Leia. Most of the good figures were blink and you miss them.

All $10 for the two packs....then 6 months later two packs go up to $15....

i don't know but that idea sounds kind of weird. Not saying it couldn't work but most people would look at a two pack like that and be pissed that it was a Yoda from the wrong era. Now to your point a Kenobi/ Maul final Final FINAL dual pack is similar to your idea and would be a good seller. Maybe with a desert diorama insert behind the figures or something

Masterfett
10-08-2017, 10:55 AM
I do understand that dilemma. But what's the difference between being pissed that Yoda's from a different era, or that there's a figure in it you don't want/need?
Either way there's a "catch". By breaking it up, there's a chance of getting both figures you want. I can see the issue for carded Collectors though, then such a set wouldn't make sense. But it has been stated several times that their focus is kids anyways, so it shouldn't matter.

Yes in the sense of the Rathtar and Bala-Tik, it makes sense. Or really anyone from that scene would work. I just feel that with so many repeats, its starting to get ridiculous. And kind of seems wasteful IMO. Why make so many versions in multiple sets, only to have several of them wind up in the trash at some point? After all we all know that will happen. These things can only be recycled via goodwill so may times before the final stage. I get covering your bases but it does seem like a lot of waste all around.

I was hesitant to pick up this figure because of the lack of leg articulation, but the likeness is great, not to mention Yoda is my favorite character, so I grabbed one today.
