Sideshow 1/6th scale Yoda (Exclusive edition)
« on: March 02, 2011, 01:44:07 PM »

Just received yesterday my 1/6th scale Exclusive edition Yoda from Sideshow.

That pice looks amazing! Incredible poseability, a very good likeliness (it could have gain a lot by having the face a little less elongated), and many hands and feet to enable different poses. Overall, you have:

- Yoda, Jedi Master (new small body sculpt, fully articulated)
- brown Jedi tunic
- beige Jedi robe
- belt with sculpted pouch
- Pan's whistle (okay, what's the exact name of that whistle, I dunno)
- 1 extra pair of feet
- 3 extra pairs of hands
- cane
- very realistic log
- one yellow and brown poseable snake
- one exclusive poseable orange snake

Yes, the Exclusive version comes with an orange snake, as a souvenir for the ESB Kenner figure realesed with the trademark orange snake.

I think the figure would have been greatly enhanced if Sideshow decided to add the blue backpack as well as a muddy shirt to fit on the 1/6 Bespin Luke, in order to recreate the Dagobah Jedi training scene. It would have been a very small addition, but adding a lot to both figures.

But overall, a more than decent figure. To be honest, I was quite impressed by his small size as I flipped opened the box flap: I was expecting somethin almost twice as big, but when I compare to other 1/6th scale Sideshow figures, the size is dead on.

Who else has this figure?

I've been hedging about preordering the Yoda environment, and then the Yoda and Luke to go with it.  Just a bit steep right now.  Piece looks great though.

FedEx came today with mine, but I missed him so I won't be playing with Master Yoda until tomorrow.

I've been considering the Yoda environment as well, but as the previous poster said....it's a bit pricey.


I already own the Sideshow ESB Luke so I was thinking of customizing a back pack for Yoda to ride in. We'll see.

Yeah, Yoda's Hut seems very cool, but definitely too big and too pricey for me.

I was thinking the same thing, but it could be fairly challenging. Same for the undershirt...

Oui! :) I do own a few of these pieces: Luke Bespin, Luke Jedi Knight, San Diego Exclusive Darth Vader (Sith Apprentice - ROTS Anakin Skywalker) , ROTS Obi-Wan and Leia Boushh (a freebie I got from Sideshow in2006 or 2007 on their XMas Holidays promotion). And now Yoda. I'm dreaming about a ESB or ROTJ Darth Vader, as well as a Chewbacca, 3PO and R2-D2... and maybe also an Ahsoka Tabo figure. I'm patient and Sideshow is definitely not my main focus, mainly due to costs and floor space...

Hey! Just realized, looking at pictures on Rebelscum's Photo Archives, that the Sideshow Luke Bespin does in fact come with an undershirt!

So that's one less thing to do...

Well I got mine today. Awesome piece but unfortunately I'm not going to be opening it until I get through the move into my new house at the end of the month.  :(
