    Just saw that here on the BBC News website. He had a good innings though - 98 years old.

    A legendary make-up artist, without a doubt.
    Just as the news of a possible Yoda movie emerges, the man who originally sculpted him becomes one with the Force. RIP.

    RIP. He will be remember and missed. I loved that he partially based Yoda's face on his own face, with some Albert Einstein wrinkles added.

    Well that sucks. At least he died after the ST was announced. He died happy most likely with the knowledge that Star Wars was going to continue.
