“Y” is for Yoda
Star Wars gets another entry in this year’s LEGO-fied A-to-Z Challenge post. I had a lot of trouble with the letter “Y”, I just finished this poster about five minutes before I wrote this entry! The idea wasn’t mine, a colleague suggested it to me yesterday when I mentioned that I didn’t have a post yet for today. My wife had suggested it earlier too, but I didn’t have a Yoda Minifigure. Thankfully, LEGO just released a new, inexpensive set featuring Yoda (which I will review later). So, I went to buy the set last night, built it, and photographed the Minifigure this morning. Talk about a whirlwind post!
Yoda is one of my all-time favorite Star Wars characters. Even when I was small, and didn’t really know Star Wars, I knew who Yoda was. In elementary school, one of my favorite songs was “Yoda” by Weird Al Yankovic (a parody of “Lola” by the Kinks). In more recent years, I have had a really good laugh over “Seagulls”, a Bad Lip Reading video on YouTube featuring Yoda.
For this poster, I decided to remake one that I saw for the Clone Wars animated series a while back. I really liked that show, almost more than the films. For my Yoda photo, I made a little overcoat out of a piece of brown paper bag. I popped Yoda’s arms out of their sockets and sticky-tacked them to his body in order to get the positioning right. The lightsaber is Qui-Gon’s from the Duel on Naboo set (click here to read my review).
