Question on Yoda cane original or repro Yodacane3Question on Yoda cane original or repro Yodacane1Question on Yoda cane original or repro Yodacane2

Hello,

I just purchased a yoda cane (one on the right) I'm trying to get some opinions on if it is repro or not.

It is a molded plastic slightly lighter than my original and a little slimmer down the bottom the main thing that differs is it seems to have more felxibility than the others I own ie: brown and light brown rigid feeling canes which are original.

Any thoughts ? The seller on ebay was Mr Robotos

I haven't had much exposure to the Yoda cane to really know and I couldn't really answer the question in the armory.

Any help most appreciated.

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul, your Yoda cane looks like the one I have which is light brown and flexible and has a slight taper to the end.
Does yours float or sink in water?

Hi Paul,

Does your cane feels rubbery and is it more reddish?

I obtained a Yoda figure which came with a rubbery cane last December and asked then for some more information here on TIG.

Maybe it helps.

Hi guys,

I recently bought this loose Yoda figure. He has COO no. 5 according to Wolff's COO guide.


The cane feels quite differerent compared to all the other canes I have, it is quite flexible, feels a bit like rubber. I don't think it is repro, cause it has a molding circle, which you also see with other canes, for instance PBP/Lili Ledy canes.

Anyone has an idea what the origin might be of this little green guy? (I mean apart from Dagobah Very Happy)

The Yoda you have is the Meccano Yoda. The stick should be a bit more reddish than the one of the brown snake.

Some say that the Yoda sold on POTF card is identical to the Meccano Yoda but I never put one off POTF card so I can't confirm this Smile

I wouldn't say it's rubbery really. The bend I am doing is as far as it will before stressing. Doesn't really have that red tinge like in your photo.

Tough to work out if it's the real deal.

I would most certainly say original, as far as i'm aware the only repros of these are of the hard plastic type unless i stand corrected?
