NONE of the previously produced Yoda action figures incorporated ALL of the characteristics that I wanted to see within ONE single figure.

Maybe I'm just crazy, but it seems to me like ALL of the recent Yodas produced by Hasbro have VERY strangely sculpted HEADS (which are far too small), and do NOT resemble the character at all. They also feature really badly painted EYES that make our beloved Yoda seem like he's been hitin' the sauce a bit too much. The EYES of this character are SO important!!! They impart all the wisdom and age that he stands for. Also, a LARGE noggin is what makes him seem more elf-like and cerebral. These recent pin-headed Yodas just ain't cuttin' it !!

I simply wanted a clean, elegant, custom Yoda Action Figure with a working pair of LEGS, an accurately-sculpted, dignified face sculpt (in the correct proportional size), rooted hair, necklace and belt accessories, and cloth robes.

I used the Hasbro 1999 "Flashback" Yoda head sculpt (drilled out for ball-jointed use) on the 2004 VOTC Yoda body (with enhanced articulation), and the 1980 vintage Kenner Yoda cane, outer robe, and belt details.

In the end, I came pretty close to matching the look of the character as seen in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK...

here is what happens when someone doesn't want to wait for hasbro to make the perfect version of yoda (or knows that hasbro will screw it up somehow)...this is great!
