I just had a thought....

Imagine you had not seen Ep2, and if you had, that Yoda didn't have that fight duel with Dooku....

Now, if Kinja said he would do that model of Yoda....how would you welcome it??

LOL....I would probably say: "YODA?? That little old fellow?? He can't fight...he's small, not strong, not agile....he can't fight!!"

LOL....what a funny thought!

Thats true! If he did not fight Dooku in the end! How popular would Yoda really be??

I'd still like to have him b/c I've thought yoda was a pretty tough little guy since I first saw him in TESB. Stealing lukes lamp. Classic...

that gave me an idea of a pretty kick ass mod, imagin playing as yoda, on his planet, and instead of having a light saber you have his little cane, and you throw it around hitting luke with it, like you would throw a light saber, that would be awsome, and i hope somone takes that in mind once yoda's model comes out :D

The truth about it all is Lucas thru in that last sceeen so little kids would love Yoda. In all truth he was said to be a great Jedi master, but not once was it ever said he fought with a lightsaber. I have some real old pics (in some magazine) of Yoda teaching people the ways of the Jedi with no Saber, just mediation. If kids just was A little old man sitting on the ground they wouldn't worship him like they do now.

I've been a Yoda fan since I saw ESB. I fear to many 12 year olds now running around as Yoda, now we have a midget war on our hands.

Oh Well, the Kids will-over play Yoda, and lose intrest. The true fans will play him enough to have fun. The truth is I see him being used in more RPG games than I do FFA.

Yoda Is A...Scratch That, Yoda Is THE Jedi Master!

Do Not Lose Respect For Him Do To One Scene.

When Yoda First Started His Training He Of Course Needed A
Lightsaber,
The Lightsaber Is More Than A Weapon, It's A Symbol That Says

"I Am A Jedi, I Am Fluent In The Ways Of The Force,
I Do Not Wish To Destoy You But I Will If I Must."

Yoda Is One Of The Most Amazing Characters In The Star Wars Universe, He's Wise, Intelligent, A Master With The Force,
And A Master With A Lightsaber,

I've Been A Yoda Fan Since I First Saw ESB And I Was Waiting To See Yoda Use A Saber And DOES HE:DEVER!, In AOTC.

I wouldve been overjoyed to have a yoda model before epii because who wouldnt want to be a green midgit that needs to take an english class and is a muppet

I would be happy if the model would come out even if i hadnt seen e2 I've had a respect for the litte green muppet from the first time i saw him on Dagobah.......:yoda: is the coolest!!!!

yeah yoda is cool but they should have made that one other guy, yaddle fight in ep2 in the arena. It would have made everyone take yoda more seriuosly when he started fighting. I saw ep2 the first day and everyone started laughing when yoda fought. . . .so sad

Yoda? No respect? To each his own, I suppose... ;) However, when I saw Episode 2...opening night, first showing...12:01 AM...as soon as everyone saw Yoda's shadow, and just heard the click of the cane, they ALL stood up and started cheering. It was great. ;) Not laughing, but things like, "HELL YEAH!". It was an uproar, because we all knew the level of badassness we were about to become witness to. Well...um...except my boyfriend. He was like rubbing his temples, sitting in his seat, and at one point said, "Please God...no...". I kid you not. ;)

Umm.. actually its proper english. And this thread is useless, it doesnt belong in the modeling forum. Kman delete this thread.

Sounds Risky

Obi-Wan called Yoda a great warrior for a reason. Or was it Luke that just assumed? I need to go watch The Empire Strikes Back again.

MUHAHAHAHAHA

As Yoda said, "Wars not make one great." Yoda was the Master of the Jedi Masters. He was the head honcho.

All of this was known well before EpII.

His "duel" w/ Dooku was not just a ploy for 12 year olds... It was an important scene showing just how powerful both Yoda and the Sith were... If Dooku could hang w/ Yoda after beating down Obi-Wan and Anakin, he had to be pretty damn strong in the Force. It also shows that Yoda is pretty badass too, which was normal character development, because they kept alluding to how Yoda was the master of the lightsaber and the Force, but well, you never really got to see it (lifting an Xwing yes, but that's not what I mean).

And yes, this thread belongs in the Valley of the Jedi, not the modeling forum.

This is very off topic. I'm closing it here and moving it to The General Forums.

i get really pissed off in this post because you lot refer to 12 year olds as babys well i am 12!!!! shocking yes but i like yoda just simply because of his attitude even he is hundreds of years old!

P.S if you think i am 12 and you are big then come and duel me my name is ISO_James please dont insult 12 year olds!

EDIT; Oh, already moved

Yeah thats a good point you've made. I suppose Attack of the clones has really boosted that littles guys popularity! :D

(reading this thread I was like: who are all these people? I guess it's because the thread was moved:D )

anyway, I think had I not seen Yoda kick major bootay in Episode II, I would not believe that Yoda could do what he can do.:confused:

No duh.

The Boba Fett fad is over, here comes that little green bastard I love to hate, %$#%$%^...... yoda. *sigh* Ah, well, out with the old, in with the new.

Darth Sidious will always be my favorite, though, and I hope he schools Yoda's ass all the way back to Dagobah in Episode III. After all, Yoda did say, "Do not underestimate the powers of the Emperor."

As for the Yoda/Tyranus fight, I found Yoda to have been put down to the lower levels of shame. He fights like a friggin' spinning top. It looks comical and cartoonish.

I find Tyranus' style of fighting, with his bent saber hilt, much more impressive. It's elegant, graceful, like a true professional fencer.

As far as the modeling subject goes, it seems as if the Ackbar model is becoming more anticipated than the Palpatine one. WTF? Ackbar!?? That butt-ugly fish-dude is gay! ARGH!!

i'd like to see a celebrity boxing between yoda and sideous. i'm talking about no sabers and no force. just fists.

well, dooku's an old guy and yoda would have to jump just to hit the sweet spot :nut:. no force or sabers I think dooku'd win.

What? Darth Sidious is Palpatine, not Dooku.

I really don't think Dooku's age affects his fighting abilities much, if any. That goes the same with all the senior members of the SW universe.

I don't see why everyone has a problem with Dooku and Palpatine being "old," een though you know they could beat the crap out of, say, Stone Cold Steve Austin. I mean, I've never heard anyone complain about Yoda, and he's a f***ing old hag at 900+!

oops. leave it to me to mess that up. anyway I don't think that changes anything. palpy's kinda hunched over so maby yoda wouldn't have to jump so high to hit the... you know... so I still go with the old guy over the little guy.

If said opinions were actually the case... then why did people start cheering in the audience BEFORE Yoda even fully walked into the hangar?.. Yoda's coolness comes from who he IS.. not what he did. He was beloved before EP I-II even came out.

i can honestly say that i would like yoda more if he DIDNT do that fight scene. since then everybody always votes yoda on everything (even the pizza topping and water questions). all the yoda talk has made me bitter and now i hate the word YODA. when i clicked on this thread i was hoping that it was someone who had some yoda-bashing ideas and wanted to tell us all how yoda stinks....


sorry im a little angry tonight, dont take my words as an offense to you personally, this is between me and the mdiget

I saw Episode 2 and regardless I still think he's a little old bugger... I never had questioned his fighting abilities cuz I never SAW them.

He's all wise and superpowerful so I assumed he was a wicked fighter.

Everyone knows he only uses that cane so he can park in the handicap zones.
