Hello everyone,

Thank you for access to Rebel Legion forum.

I am a member of both the 501st Legion - Everglades Squad and Saber Guild - Dagobah Temple with an approved Darth Sidious/Emperor Palpatine costume.

I would like to bring balance to the Force, by working on a new screen accurate Master Yoda - Revenge of Sith version. [Based on CGI, not puppet.]

My plan to make this convincing for Rebel Legion approval, includes a high quality mask from Chris Stephens Creations. I plan to work on robes designed/scaled for adult wearer in crouching stance, to simulate Yoda's stature. Also plan to incorporate a screen accurate Yoda lightsaber.

I believe Master Yoda - Revenge of Sith version would be a fun and unique crowd pleaser at Rebel Legion/501st trooping events!

Appreciate everyone's positive input for approval.

Look forward to joining the Knights of the Jedi Order (KJO) with a WIP challenge that is nine-hundred (900) years in the making!

Yoda 1

Just as a heads up before you spend too much money - in general, the puppet characters have not been ruled as approvable costumes in the past. I would seek clarification from the LMO about whether thisncostume can be approved before proceeding.

Hello Caitlin,

Appreciate your response. Understand Yoda has not been approved in the past.

Look forward to seeking Rebel Legion re-consideration for approval of a new screen accurate Master Yoda - Revenge of Sith version, which is CGI based, not puppet based.

Thank you again.
Ian

Apologies for contradicting you, but Yoda has been consistently rejected in the past few years at least, and per both the Detachment and the LMO team, no version of Yoda is approvable at this time. While one version was CG, it was still the CGI equivalent of a puppet, as opposed to motion capture with an actor. While you are welcome to try and make your case to the LMO again, that answer is unlikely to change.

Yes. As Yoda was never a costume that was facilitated with a human being, it is not one viable for approval.

If you'd like to make a quality puppet to scale that would be great. A handful of people have and been cleared for events and whatnot.
