    Pretty much as the title says. I just picked up one of Howards beautiful Yoda casts and need a set of eyeballs for the little sucker...

    Has anyone sourced a decent set yet?

    Many Thanks,
    -Gary

    Thanks RKW, I don't understand why it's so hard to get info on Yodas eyeballs.

    Zorg, that's really cool. And it makes me think of all manner of other useful applications... Thanks for posting.

    Is that number accurate? Obviously you got it from somewhere. Just need to know if it's right.

    I wish Howard would chime in with specs on his Yoda eyes... since they're so perfect.

    Here comes some chimming ;)

    First off, I would highly recommend NOT using Schoefers... they really suck at getting stuff right and always messing orders up from too many sets or wrong color or even wrong sizes.. They're also known for being VERY late on orders... I NEVER refer them because I'm always waiting for something. Just a warning... they suck.

    The eyes in Yoda were sculpted, but a 28MM with 14MM iris should work fine...

    Good luck.

    Forgot about this thread -- so what's the consensus on eye color?

    Funny -- I've been thinking of that scene as I've began painting Yoda's eyes. Seriously.

    Eye Question for Yoda:

    Capilaries or not...? What do you think?

    I'm in the process of hand=painting eyes for my figure...

    I am fairly certain the original puppet eyes did not have veins and capilary detail (though not 100% sure).

    But I'm toying with adding them anyway to add to the realism of the figure.

    On the other hand, would Yoda even have had red blood...?

    Kurtyboy, thanks for that link.

    Their online ordering is down at the moemnt, but I just called them direct and orderd a pair of 28mm for a very reasonable price.

    Cheers.

    Yes their online ordering system has never worked.

    I got several pairs from them. Sometimes a little hard to get exactly what you need but they will swap them if you're not happy.

    They actually have access to a huge range, far greater than what's shown on the site. But you have to order them and wait since they don't stock everything.

    Here were some of the hopefulls left on the shortlist for Luke's eyeballs after I narrowed it down from over 40 pairs of blue eyes...

    I have made some Yoda eyes for a board member (zorg) here a few years ago.
    I dont think I have pictures of them in my new PC, but maybe Zorg has some...if I find the pictures of them I will post here how I made them.

    They where acrylic eyes.

    I ordered the 700-A105s for Luke. Can't remember what size exactly but the first pair had the iris too big so I asked for smaller ones.

    I highly recommend Shoeffers eyes. I just ordered my set.. Hazel green.. $ 28 bucks. All my eyes come from Schoeffers.
