What does everyone think of this?

That is the Ep.1 yoda.............I don't have a problem with that,Because it lets those who missed him the first time around get him now. And those who do customes can use the chair and the figure....

Is it the exact same or is it different. According to the Hasbro site this one is not due out till Dec '02/Jan '03.

Also says it is from the AOTC movie?

Just wondering, the head looks a little different to me.

Darth Vellner
08-30-2002, 03:50 PM
Yea, The head is a little different looking......It look more like the Ep. 1 puppet! It does not look like yoda in AOTC...Hmmmm???

That's what you get for employing spider monkeys to run the star wars section website

And if this is a re-release then Hasbro suck and blow mightily my boys, oh yes they do.... the damn thing wasn't even any good first time round.

But there was a rumbling recently about a december Yoda release. If this is it then big woopy doodoo happy christmas boys and girls enjoy your Yoda novelty cracker filler.

MY GOD, I sure hope the final product looks better than this. Hey, at least I don't have to make a Council diorama chair for Even Piell now. The head sculpt is gunky junk, as is the rest of the body's paint job.

I thought the Episode I Yoda sucked, and this one is too. They better have just stuck a picture of the old one up there because they don't have a new one. I doubt it though, this is Hasbro we are talking about.

For those of you who don't know where your Episode 1 Yoda is, here's a comparison of the paint schemes.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
08-30-2002, 05:23 PM
"Okay, children, time to show me your clay sculptures!"
"I made a Yoda! I painted it myself and everything!"
"Why, that's wonderful, Bobby!"

And that is how the new Yoda figure came to be. ;)

For a limited time, get your re-hash Episode 1 Yoda, now with bending and sitting action!

I hope that's just a prototype, cuz it looks awful pathetic.

The True Maul
08-30-2002, 06:22 PM
I agree with Tagmac, I hope thats just a prototype because it's the same EPI repainted with chair and then add a lightsaber!! :)

Could this not have been a yoda with floating chair?

Or meditation yoda?

Or standing with cane in two hands yoda?


Unexpected this is.........and unfortunate.

Jargo
08-30-2002, 06:42 PM
I just hate the figure period. I hate the way his feet are at the top of his robes when he's sitting a nd I hate the pointy sleeves that have shoulder articulation but can't really be posed because with those pointy sleeves it looks dumb. I hate the waist bend. I hate his hands that won't hold a damn thing because one is a clenched fist and the other is a strange claw like he has arthritis. The head was ok but it's still episode one Yoda and it stinks as far as Yoda goes. AOTC Yoda at least looks like Yoda. This looks like one of santas elves gone puke green.
And the chair isn't deep enough to hold him seated properly. stinky pants full of this figure is...

Oh yeah, forgot *adopts childish sarcastic whiny tone of voice* "don't buy it if you don't like it" Don't fret, I have no intention of buying I was just overstating my opinion. Such as I'm entitled to. And in response, i say don't read me if you don't like what i say or how i say it. Thank you and goodnight.

The least they could do is give it Deluxe Saga Yoda's head.

This is worse than a re-hash, this is the same (basically) Ep. 1 figure released on a Saga card. This sucks!

i like it...seriously...im gonna buy this one...even though it really is horrible theres still something about it that i like...but why doesnt he have a new head? damn it, it cant be that hard for hasbro to put deluxe yodas head on that body...grr..i honestly would not be surprise if the new mace windu turned out to be the mail away EP 1windu excpet with a new lightsaber, and a new paint job

Same figure on a different card??...and that sucks????


that was the great thing about old school Kenner
Star Wars card - Luke
Empire Card - Luke
Jedi Card - Luke

How meny lukes did we have and lose, And then replaced
If not for rerelease's on the next movies card lots of us would not have the Vintage Collections that we do, Because we lost our first and second then we replaced them later with the jedi card luke.....:greedy: :crazed: ;)

Terrible figure! Sooooo, when did Hasbro just lose total interest in the Star Wars line? Look at all the rehashed garbage we have been offered recently!:mad:

Unless it is a "clever" ploy to make the 3 3/4" line so detestable that we have no choice but to buy their Unleashed statues. :rolleyes:

I think this "new" Yoda is terrible. Why can't we get a really good Yoda like the vintage one.

!!Wow!!!This is just another one of those great figure/ideas that Hasbro comes up with!!I couldnt find Attack of the Clones Yoda, so of course I'll buy this instead!!I've forgotten that I already bought it a few years back!!

Lots of awesome characters to be made and we get more crap.

I think I would still end up getting the new Yoda just to complete my collection... But one thing is for sure... I aren't too happy about the way it looks... Though the lightsabre would be really cool!! hahaha...

Give it a chance, I like the idea, but we'll come back to that later. If you look carefully they have not put any hair on it yet and also there is no skin texturing on the face, I think that they have put a picture of the Episode I version to tide us over untill they have a better example.

The reason I think it's a good idea is that, I'm hoping it's the first of a line of Jedi Council members in chairs, of course we want them with lightsabers and in there Arena postures, but after that I hope we start to get them in chairs, something I have been praying for for a long time!

This is what I hope they do with the remaining Jedi Councilors that we need:
Coleman Trebor (Jedi Master) with Lightsaber in attacking pose
Adi Gallia (Jedi Master) with Lightsaber in attacking pose
Even Piell (Jedi Master) with lightsaber in attacking pose
Oppo Rancisis (Jedi Master) with lightsaber in attacking pose
Depa Billaba (Jedi Master) with lightsaber in attacking pose
Eeth Koth (Arena Battle) (EpII) with Lsaber in white robes
Yareal Poof (Jedi Master) with lightsaber in pose
Yaddle (Jedi Master) with Lightsaber in pose

Then:
Yoda (Jedi Council) with chair
Mace Windu (Jedi Council) with chair

And so on and so forth, you get my drift, Jedi in scene specific poses are nice, but I would love to have a Jedi Council all lined out on my desk!

Unless, of course, they do a NEW sculpt and pitch in his floating chair.

We only need a Yoda that can hold a lightsaber with both hands......only that...............
C'mon Hasblo is that so difficult?..........after making a re-hash of the massif with a tusken......what are going to get?
Red Battel droid & STAP ?? Sio Bibble from AOTC...?? a new Mas AMedda?????????????

08-31-2002, 11:00 PM
Why is hasbro re-hashing this figure?! Just cause he has a little less hair and a lightsaber now. It is garbage. I don't want to spend my money on a figure I bought three years ago.

Only in the non-movie years and even then it is debatable. I personally cannot wait until there are no more Star Wars films left to ruin the toy line and we can get back to simply high quality, non-gimmicky product like in the POTJ line. Although with the crap Hasbro has pulled recently, I don't foresee the line lasting much longer.:cry:

What sucks is that Hasbro's mismangement of the toy lines will mean the end of SW toys after the movies. :(

Well.....just think of the figures that we got during the the POTJ line (a FEAST for collectors!)....which was between EPI and EPII.....

Ellors Madak
Amanaman
Ketwol
Bo Shek
FX-7
B-Wing with B-wing Pilot
At-ST with Paploo
K-3PO
Eeth Koth
IG-88.....and a whole lot of other WAY cool figures.

I guess what I am trying to say is that after the interest in EPII has passed (and after EPIII for that matter) Hasbro will once again start releasing quality figures that the collectors love. The truth is that once kids lose interest after Star Wars is gone, Hasbro's whole customer base will be mainly collectors. They should be producing quality figures right now, but most kids would rather buy a "rehashed" Yoda than an obscure alien figure. In fact, most kids buying this Yoda figure probably don't even know that the same exact figure was released three years ago. The only good thing to look forward to that has been confirmed is Ephant Mon...can't wait for him!!!

Have patience in Hasbro. They will eventually come through for us in the end...

I think the kids have already lost interest in SW toys. It doesn't take long for kids these days with Harry Potter and the next Pokemon,it all depends on what's new.Plus I think that Hasbro has disapointed them too.

One thing worse than a rehash is a rehash with a worse paint job than the original!

Jayspawn

I'm not too impressed with the re-tooled Yoda. W've seen him before. BUT, it is Yoda and not another Darth Maul, Obi-Wan or Anakin. Personally, I like the paint job on this Yoda than the EPI version. Looks more like the green Jedi Master.

rynobot
09-02-2002, 01:15 AM
Well they still haven't given us a AOTC Yoda with the right hair colour or two legs and a normal facial expressian. :(

09-09-2002, 11:41 AM
Not sure if this has already been disgussed, but I just looked over on Sir Steves homepage, and seen a pic for the new SAGA Yoda Jedi Council figure.

This looks exactly like the Episode I version, just different colour robes and comes with a lightsaber apparently, it doesn't even look like the SAGA versions we already have.

What does everyone else think of this ??

stad
09-09-2002, 12:32 PM
Yoda with the levitation seat would have been 100 times better than this re-hash piece of garbage! Even better, they could have resculpted more than the head, Yoda has TWO legs!

Darth Sidious
09-09-2002, 02:12 PM
It looks like that Saga Ki-Adi (Rehash) all over again....Hasbro, instead of this, give us the Tonnika Sisters and stuff. Do we really need this? I say no.

I think the Yoda looks ok. I'm not overly impressed. I don't mind that Yodas are sculpted with 1 leg. But 2 would be something different.

I'm filing this one away with stuff like the Cantina Aliens sets, the accessory set figures, Saga Ki-Adi, the Saga Action Fleet, Endor Rebel troop builder set (the Stormtrooper I can understand; they're all supposed to have the same head!), and so on, and so forth. Just plain lack of appreciation on Hasbro's part; lack of appreciation for the license, lack of appreciation for the kids, and especially, lack of appreciation for us fans.

I can see why someone would buy this figure b/c they didn't get the TPM version, but honestly, that sculpt is so not Yoda. They should at least change the head.

What it comes down to, Hasbro can reproduce any figure it wants. That's why no figure should ever be limited or hard to find.

True true... to be perfectly fair to everyone... things should be done this way... But like many of the complains I read... Why does Yoda still have 1 leg? :) Is it really that difficult to let him have more articulation on the legs or what??
