    "Yoda" puppet hand from Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. "Yoda" puppet hand from Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (TCF, 1999) The character of "Yoda" is not only the most powerful Jedi Master in the Star Wars universe, he's also one of the most popular characters to ever appear in the iconic franchise. This is a screen-used Yoda character puppet hand worn by Frank Oz, the legendary Jim Henson Muppeteer who operated and/or voiced beloved Yoda since his very first appearance in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980). Consisting of a 4 x 6 in. cast silicone, instantly recognizable three-fingered hand - built on an integral 13 in. long white spandex glove. The hand has been expertly painted in alien greens and yellows with brown details on knuckles and fingernails. After use in Episode 1, the hand was shipped to Australia for intended use in Episode II - Attack of the Clones. However, it was discarded when the production turned from puppetry to digital character effects. It was then that this piece of Star Wars history was rescued and preserved by a makeup technician working on the production. Exhibiting little wear, the puppet hand has been stored with care, out of sunlight to preserve the integrity of the silicone, which remains fresh and supple. With a minor split in the spandex glove seam near the right wrist. In very good condition. This Yoda hand represents that last time the character was performed as a puppet in the landmark Star Wars franchise. Accompanied by a COA.
