"Tu or not, there is no attempt." Bandai Star Wars 1 / 6. Scale Jedi Master Yoda Model Kit Review

#ToyHaven #OSW

This was part of my April 2017 haul (on my toy blog HERE )

Yoda first appeared Im 1980's Star Wars movie "The Empire Strikes Back". In the original films he trained Luke Skywalker to fight the Galactic Empire. In the Prequel films, he serves as the Grand Master of the Jedi Order and as a high-ranking general of Clone Troopers in the clone wars. After his death in "Return of the Jedi" at an unknown age, which exceeded 900 years, Yoda was the oldest living character in the Star Wars franchise in the canon, until the introduction of Maz Kanata in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"

Grand Jedi Master Yoda is one of the oldest and most powerful known Jedi Masters in the Star Wars universe. Series creator George Lucas decided to have many details of the character's life story. Yida's race and homeworld have not been named in any media, canonical or otherwise, and he is only supposed to be of a "species unknown" from Star Wars Databank. Yoda's speech syntax was analyzed and discussed by academic syntactics who found it somewhat contradictory, but it could extrapolate that it has object-subject verb-word order.

After I got the Bandai 1/6 digit Star Wars Stormtrooper Model Kit, which proved to be very impressive with full articulation (19459010) HERE and HERE as well as comparative pictures with Hot Toys 12-inch Stormtrooper HERE ), I decided (see the full Actionfigur review on my toy blog My hand to try Bandai Star Wars 1 / 6. Scale Yoda Model Kit

Scroll down to see all pictures.

There are two sizes, the 1/6 scale version and a 1/12 scale.
There are two sizes, the 1/6 scale version and a 1/12 scale -Version. The 1/12 scale Yoda is pretty much a statue when it is assembled, but the 1/6. Scale version has some articulation.

The picture below shows how the assembled Bandai Star Wars.

The picture below shows how the assembled Bandai Star Wars 1/6 Yoda Model Kit looks like He comes with two head options, one has white hair and the other head has no hair. He also comes with two eye options, one sees him straight and the other set of eyes makes him look at the left (see the pictures below). IMHO the head sculpts are quite well done. Unfortunately I did not improve the painting skills and continue to improve on the look. I'm sure someone with some painting skills will be able to make this Bandai 1/6th scale Yoda even better.

Model kits do not work in the same way as 1/6 scale with outfits. 12 inch figures have basic naked bodies and are dressed as a real person with layers of clothing to see the part. Model kits consist of parts that contain their outfits and are simply connected together to form the whole, as in this case. The joint lines or seams can be covered by adding mastic and then paint over them for a seamless look. The seams of the Bandai Stormtroopers are less obvious and their design and assembly conceals the articulation lines cunningly. Not so for 1 / 6th Yoda.

Here Yoda is strikingly a pose with the alternating head and eyes. It is the same model kit, but differently posed. It is about tearing the head and using the change. The light swell is included and requires assembly. There are stickers that you should use to hold on to the light sword to reach the black-silver color scheme, but they do not work. After much frustration I hit the stickers and painted in the silver parts with a silver paint mark.

This is the 1/12 scale Yoda, which is included with the Bandai Star Wars 1 / 6. Scale Jedi Master Yoda Model Kit. While the 1/6 scale Yoda seems to be from the Prequel films, this 1/12-scale Yoda is from "The Empire Strikes Back". The eyes here are stickers and once again, I am very impressed with the sculpture. It takes a paint job to complete the view.
