So i've been looking at the extras on the blu ray set, they have pics of a yoda statue in the archives, does that have anything to do with the original freeborn sculpt? apart from being a bit bright green it looks ok
No mate, it isn't original. It's the same one used in the prop tours and in the star wars to Indy book. Basically a resculpt based on Freeborn's, although an original might have been moulded or referenced in order to make it. That's what I've always believed about the piece, unless there is evidence to the contrary?
lol, i think this actually was a production made piece, the curl in the ears and the eyes coming away like that would indicate a mechanism inside which is coming apart, foam latex and metal parts, not a good mix
Wow, there were a few items in the SW exhibit that said "reproduction." Since it does not say that under Yoda as you can see in the top pic, that would be disappointing if it wasn't original. All this time I thought it was.
