By now we've all probably seen the AOTC Yoda figure,do you guys/gals like the new Yoda figure?

I'm alittle disappointed that he still has no seperate legs like the vintage one,but does have waist articulation which I believe is a first for a Yoda Figure :) at least its something :rolleyes:

Whats the brown/gold thing Yoda is on,is it the same thing Dooku uses to catch Obi Wan?


Thoughts?

Well he looks younger than he did in E1 but they're probably still working on it.

I think it looks alright. I still think the E1 Yoda looks tons better then the one that was pictured at Toy Fair. But knowing Hasbro that was no doubt a prototype. I think he's on some sort of pillar in the hanger where Dooku's ship is stored. It also looks like it shoots him off like a missle. I don't like that feature at all, but atleast they didnt make him magnetic so he lands attached to Doooku's back. :D

LOL JarJar. I think it's good that he looks younger than E1 and he looks like he does in the Classics too. The E1 Yoda (in the movie) was just plain ugly. He looked older than in ROTJ. Crap, he didn't even look like Yoda!

It's horrible looking, though I'll probably end up buying it.

I don't like the figure. I am disappointed with it. He looks like he is ready to part the Red Sea for all of Moses' followers. I am assuming the stick thing it is holding will actually be his lightsaber when it's released? Maybe I will change my mind after seeing the film. Perhaps he is actually doing something like moving objects around to **** off the Count.

I think it's ok looking. I'm more than sure I'll buy it being that I'm a fan of Yoda.

This is one of the worst figures in this new line. I can't believe they even got the skin colour wrong! It's too dark, for heaven's sakes! Those eyes are wacky and he looks like a p***ed off little frog creature. This is NOT Yoda!! I'm sorry... but this will just not do.:mad:

I think it looks horrible. They need to work on him, and where's his lightsaber? I was really looking forward to seeing it, but nothing?

If 1 out of 10 are good then that means that they make a lot of good stuff.:rolleyes:

I seriously don't think there's many mold revisions/re-dos if a sculpt comes out looking crappy. I think Hasbro basically hopes the sculptors get it right the first time and from that, the toy is approved no matter how faulty it may be.

It really is a shame, because the color scheme isn't there, the detail isn't there, the facial structure is wrong....and his ears are sagging. The Yoda figure sucks.

THAT'S who was missing off the "TOP 5" posters box!!

Maybe that's what happens when you reach a certain number? Maybe it resets? Maybe he upset the midichlorians!

Yeah, the figure looks kinda crummy, but I must say that the overal sculprt of the figure, including the aforementioned "darthlike" sense of evil, suggests that we're gonna get some pretty good proof that Yoda deserves the reverence that all Jedi lavish upon him. That is one side of the character that has always been implied(the immense power at his disposal), and as long as lucas doesn't see this as a good reason to use that scene from the Matrix ONE MO TIME, it is an exciting prospect. We know that he COULD use his powers if he NEEDED them, and it looks like we're gonna see something happen in the film that is bad enough to warrant him FINALLY cutting loose.
THAT is what this figure makes me think, anyway.

I hope that that is just the prototype and that changes will be made because it is really really horrible.

Well if that clear plastic rod is stuck somewhere intimate it might explain his expression :eek:

I think they are on the right track with the figure. Hasbro will probably come up with a decent Yoda. I do think it's time for some independent leg articulation. Especially give how mobile he's supposed to be in AOTC. The one piece legs have got to go.
