    "Yoda" head created in 1986 by ILM creature shop. (ca. 1986) A piece of Star Wars history consisting of a "Yoda" head or "skin" of the sort that was affixed over internal animatronic mechanisms, eyes and teeth for animating this beloved character. Constructed of foam rubber cast from Stuart Freeborn's original molds. Created to rebuild the original Yoda for George Lucas, this pull was rejected due to minor bubbles in the face. The ears have been cast separately and expertly attached to the head. It remains unpainted and without hair applied. The head has been sealed in an 14 x 11 x 10 in. acrylic case filled with nitrogen to slow oxidation and comes with a black felt cover to block UV rays and an LOA from ILM Creature Shop manager (86-87) Charlie Bailey. Shows some discoloration. Otherwise, in very good condition.
