    Well I don't believe I am actually going to take the plunge on this , the worst that can happen is after the whole sculpting is that I can't capture the likeness and it will all go sour and will not be produced .

    I would love glass eyes but will have to try different sizes , I know that 6 mm worked for the cms, but yoda has bigger eyes then a human ,imo please correct me if I'm wrong guys , so this may help in using maybe 8 mm or 9 mm eyes , if not then they will be painted , but they will look real if painted

    Oh man the excitement begins again. Good luck man. And honestly if you're going for glass eyes go for the bigger ones. If you make Yoda's eyes a little too big it won't really matter, but if they're made too small it will be noticeable. Does that make sense?

    I hear what you're saying. I only meant diameter wise. By all means sculpt his eyes "smokey". He was the original chief after all :D Why do you think he talks that way?

    Raf has shared this with me via text. I was super excited to see u take this on buddy. I myself was doing a lil research on this as I wanted to start this project. Ofcourse I was going to get with raf. I know one thing the paint job will be amazing.

Been doing calculations once all done , so if interested email me for price , I will be doing solid silicone head and hands and feet , punched in hair , glastic eyes , base , certificate of authenticity and numbered nameplate under base limited to 12
    And will also make resin ones , painted eyes glued hair for half the price , but limited to 5. Email me for info . And we can start a list here if need to. .
