    Save a few shots here and there the CGI Yoda looked more realistic and expressive to me than have any of the other puppets... also he is not stuck to the floor and we actually get to see him walking around which is quite cool... in ESB, he seems to be stuck in the ground (for obvious reasons) during some scenes and he really doesn't move around all that much.

    I mean, I think I prefer the ESB version of Yoda to the CGI Yoda in AOTC... but the AOTC Yoda was capable of so much more... you really have to hand it to Rob Coleman and the guys at ILM. Even Frank Oz likes the new Yoda alot. :)

    I think the original puppet Yoda from TESB and ROTJ was the best, hands down!

    I think that the ESB Yoda had a better range of emotions and did a better job of conveying emotions than the GGI Yoda. While it may be true that the CGI Yoda was very expressive, on an intuitive level, he seemed flat. I'd argue that conveyance of real emotions wins out over superficial, cartoon expressiveness any day. I have to wonder if the people who prefer the CGI Yoda are judging things by how they "look" versus how they "feel."

    The Phantom Menace Yoda was an afront to the senses!

    Which one?

    ...just a real lame way of me up-ing this. ;) But, there's next to no polls left here, so I figured if you guys are bored you might wanna vote for your favorite Yoda.

    I prefer the puppet from 5 and 6. I really dug the lightsaber battle from AOTC but I still like the puppet.

    I couldn't understand why Yoda had such a prominant jawline in TPM, and looked completely different in the rest of the episodes. Had he done steroids until QuiGon died?

    I prefer the original, but he was still good in Clones.

    Do you guys remember polls? :)

    Anyway, if you're real bored, vote in this (surprisingly) close poll.

    ESB and ROTJ Yoda puppet! :) So he was stuck on the studio floor, he actually looked like a real thing instead of CGI. It's a weird thing with CGI, no matter how good the animation is, the movements just seem so fake. [face_plain]

    CGI Yoda! that fight scene was the only reason i saw EPII again. (and the death stix scene) if u ask me, AOTC would'v SUCKED w/o the Yoda vs. Dooku scene

    Yoda puppet from ESB & ROTJ. Simply because that's the way I will always remember Yoda.

    The little green tornado. :cool:


    Seriously, he was realistic (and a very well handled CGI) and showed much more emotion and activity.

    I think that after AOTC, we all know why Luke was looking for a GREAT WARRIOR on Dagobah... ;)

    Ok ok, so I think simpler is better -- I much prefer the ESB/ROTJ puppet.
