Clone Wars: Battle of Ilum - Yoda takes out some chameleon droids which have been sent to destroy the crystal caves.

Revenge of the Sith: Yoda VS. Darth Sidious - Yoda faces the new emperor, Palpatine.

Note how "Yoda" can be read correctly from both sides! Also note the Initials at the bottom indicating which film/series each vignette is from!
I hope you like it and would love to hear your comments on it! :classic:


:yoda: May the force be with you - Always! :yoda:

A few minutes late, but I'll give you the benefit of time zones, bad excuses and server delay.
It made the cut :grin:

Woot! :cry_happy: I worked my Megabloks off to get this done in time and was scared I was too late! Thanks! If you allow it, I'd like to add some more, better pics in the next few hours.

Great entry! As with many other entries, I like how you made the background of the Senate scene! Only if xwingyoda was here to see this :yoda:

I was wondering where your entry was.  You have a nack for entering (and winning) most contests on EB.

I must say This one doesn't dissapoint.  Any section of this would make a great small entry, but luckily we get them all.

My favorite part is the reflecting red bolts.  I've never seen that technique before.

That's really nice now. I like how you've made different versions of Yoda for 'special circumstances.' I also like how you've labelled them all.

Impressive entry. :thumbup: I like how you've mish-mashed 3 epic and 1 still-good-yet-not-quite-as-epic scenes into one.
I'm not very familiar with the Animated Clone Wars scene but in my book the backdrop is a little sparse, maybe it is meant to be like that? Getting past that those chameleon droids look wonderful and I'm still trying to figure out how you made the blaster reflect of the yoda's lightsaber. The Yoda vs Dooku is very nice in particular the positions of the minifigs.
Training Luke doesn't really say epic to me but I am glad you included it as it has the best background IMO. Finnaly by far my favourite scene from your display Yoda vs Palpatine. I loved this bit from the movie and you've perfectly captured it. :wub: One suggestion would be to put Yoda in a more action-y pose. (As I recall he spent a lot of time twirling in the air in the movie) What more can I say? The Yoda head on top and the little signs informing you from which movie the scenes are from are the icing on the cake!
Very well done!  :sweet:

Then you have probably never seen my prize-winning Battle of Dagobah diorama. :wink: And I wasn't the first to use it either. I copied it from... someone. Can't remember who.

Thanks, I did that partly because I couldn't find one of the Yoda torsos intentionally. :grin:

Thanks. The CW scene is so plain because it took place in a snow wasteland (check the reference pic), so there really wasn't much I could have added, and I ran out of time anyway.
The Luke scene may not be as epic, but the aftermath of it sort of is - an epic fail on Luke's part, that is. :laugh:
I was thinking about putting yoda in the air, but since I already did that in the Dooku scene, I chose to do the scene where he and palpy are in a dramatic lock-position.

By the way, the head design was taken from the official Yoda sculpture. It's practically a slice of the middle of his head.

Just in the nick-of-time! A very impressive entry Oky Wan! You really captured the four scenes very well. I particularly like the Yoda vs. Sidious battle scene, the black background with white highlights and the inverse discs make you feel like you're really in the Republic senate hall. Great job!
