My Jumbo Yoda is shipping... Will be my first jumbo figure. I'm really looking forward to getting it.

I got my shipping notice for the brown snake exclusive, but no word on the orange snake one.  Typical GG...

Please post pics when they arrive.  I've read that there's something wrong with the cloak.  Too short, smooth, and not baggy enough, and looks like a sportcoat.  Anyone else hear  this?

Here's a pic:

Mine looks like that too.  No complaints from me for my first Jumbo figure. I wasn't prepared for how big the cards were  ;D

Tough to say - mine still looks like this...

Got my brown snake exclusive and he looks the same.  By the way, GG sent a solitation that they have a few more of the initially sold out brown snake version in stock, so head on over if you still need one.

So this new style cloak is nothing like the original.  They even put up this pic on the GG site:

Am I the only one who isn't ok with it and wishes they made it "just like the original" (sort of their tagline for this series)?

I don't really have a problem with it, but you're right - it is somewhat false versus what they originally showed.

I opened my brown snake Yoda and I'm more ok with it now.  I think that's mostly due to such a great backer card image.  Still wish it were fluffier and longer, but I don't hate it as much as I did when I first saw the pic.

One Yoda with Orange Snake preorder is available at BBTS.  Not bad for 67.99.

Yoda w/ orange snake is in stock at BBTS.  Unfortuantely, the price is 74.99.  Looks like there's 6 available.

I hesitated and missed the orange snake Yoda on many sites.  However, I did find some instock at toytokyo.com last week.  I ordered one and it arrived quickly and well packed. 

I just looked and they still have some instock for $75 if people are still looking.
