They can be made to portray many different scenes from the movies and the television series. Different materials can be used as well.
Traditionally, life size Yoda statues are made out of ceramic or plaster. A special mold is made from wood or other sturdy materials and the statue itself is made by pouring plaster either inside the mold or over the mold to ensure that every detail is captured. Once material has dried over or inside the mold to the point where it cannot be altered, the sculptor will begin chiseling off any extra pieces of the statue and will smooth out any rough spots. Once the statue is smoothed out, they will then paint the statue to represent the true expressions of Yoda. After the paint dries the sculptor will then adhere a glaze coating to the statue giving it the final shiny appearance that can be found in stores.
Because of this “dawn of a new era” with the amazing comeback of Star Wars, Yoda life size statues have become just as popular as the movie. They can be purchased online, through private collectors, or at specialty stores and can even be handmade to your own specifications.
