Yoda Rehearsal Puppet Up For Auction

Discussion in 'Buy, Sell and Trade' started by Minstrel Murray, Dec 13, 2011.

  1. The Paley Center in LA is hosting an auction this weekend, and one of the items they have listed is a Yoda rehearsal puppet. It has been authenticated by Wendy Froud and is described as follows:

    "Yoda puppet used as a prototype on set while the real puppet was being built over a period of several months and also, more importantly, to give Frank Oz a chance to develop the character of Yoda. Establishing a realistic movement, with believable body characteristics was important in developing the character to its full potential. Frank Oz wished to have as much time as required with the puppet in order to experiment with it. The puppet also served as a lighting double to the actual Yoda puppet on set."
