I just bought this 1:1 full sized Yoda right out of the display case at Disneyland 2 weeks ago.

I saw it initially at Disney World 2 weeks earlier and I asked if the passholder discount was available on it. I was told no and that in addition, since it was their last one, they couldn't sell it. For $3,000 I thought it was pretty pricey and wouldn't have bought it anyway but it stuck with me. Flash forward two weeks and they had one in Disneyland, I almost jokingly asked about the passholder discount and they said yes. With 20% off it brought the price down to $2,400 and shipping maxes at $39 under the new pricing policy so I did it. Pretty crazy buying it right out of the case.

I've never bought anything like this before and I don't want to just "set it out" . I'd really like to place Yoda in some sort of glass / plexiglass case of some sort.

Does anyone have any ideas about getting a case for it?

Thanks in advance!
Congratulations on getting the life-size Yoda. I did something similar but of a lesser value a few years ago when I bought the Legendary scale Obi-Wan bust from the Terminator ride ( that's right), in Universal Studios Orlando. I don't know if they still have one but, they used to have a showroom with many Sideshow pieces for sale there, so I just got mine out of the glass case. It was exciting. :)

As far as buying a case for your Yoda, you can try contacting some acrylic display makers in your area. If that doesn't work, I know casesforcollectibles.com has been of great help to many collectors before. Good luck, and enjoy your purchase!

Just saw there is a preorder for this (again)? Looks just like the one previously available but not shipping until end of year. Anyone know what this is about?

I ordered this from Sideshow forgetting about the import and custom fees coming into Australia. $630 FedEx charged me. I'm going to have to go back to ordering locally.
it is an awesome piece though.

Whoah, 630$ AUS? Or US?

I Am and avid sideshow collector, mainly in PF EX range and do buy direct from sideshow to ensure being able to get the EX. Given mark ups and no guarantees with retail here for the most part it is the most reliable way to order. PF commonly cost around 130US$ direct to me here in NSW, but 630 is a blowout. Appreciate the heads up on costings, glad you like the piece and see it was worth the extra bump.

Throw up a few pics if you get the chance!

Yes that's Australian, if you spend more than $1000 Australian overseas, you end up paying about a 20% premium to bring it in the country. 10% GST, 5% custom fee and a some odd $50 charges here and there.
Make sure it's worth it before you order.
im same as you, mainly buy PF pieces direct from Sideshow.
