Comparatively, CGI Yoda looks like he was pulled out of a not very impressive video game cutscene and jarringly plopped in the movie.

So…just like almost everything else in the prequels?

CPY looks nothing like Yoda or the AOTC/ROTS CGI models. CGI Yoda doesn’t look any more like Yoda than the AOTC/ROTS CGI, but it’s at least consistent with AOTC/ROTS instead of being the one odd man out.

True enough. 😛

The reason Lucas went with a CGI Yoda was so that he could make him into a backflipping twirling ninja who was never supposed to fight to begin with.

Enough said.

I mean, yeah, but it’s also because the TPM puppet looked like straight trash.

I disagree. I think CGI Yoda is the one that looks like straight trash.

While TPM puppet Yoda doesn’t look enough like the real Yoda - I’ll grant you - the same is certainly true with CGI Yoda (both models but especially the ROTS/TPM one). The main difference to me is that I actually think the TPM puppet, despite being inaccurate, at least appears very real to my eyes and actually looks like he belongs in the scenes he’s in. Comparatively, CGI Yoda looks like he was pulled out of a not very impressive video game cutscene and jarringly plopped in the movie. The TPM puppet’s movements and expressions are also more consistent with the Yoda we know and love.

But Creepy Puppet Yoda™ looks infinitely better than CGI Yoda. CG Yoda constantly has his head at a downward angle and looks up at the people he’s talking to only with his eyes, and he lacks the little bit of expression that CPY had left. Screw consistency, I prefer a decent but weird puppet that looks nothing like the character over awkward CGI that still looks nothing like the character. 😛

I agree wholeheartedly with all of this.

The puppet looks a lot chipper than the CGI one. A theatrical version is what I would like to see, puppet and all.

He sure does. And that’s what I want too.
