Pepsi Lifesize Yoda
« on: April 14, 2005, 01:39 PM »
I just saw this on ebay - I didn't know Pepsi was doing another promotion with lifesize characters.  I wonder if they will do more than just Yoda again?

Didn't they make a Maul, Jar-Jar, and Yoda for TPM?

Sure would be nice to snag one of these in a sweepstakes or something...I tried forever to win the BlockBuster Yoda when TPM hit....to no avail.

That would be an awesome item to own, very cool.  I also really want the R2-D2 cooler (yes Dale, the one Bob won >:() that Pepsi put out a while ago.  I like large display items, but so often they're expensive or the shipping is prohibitive.

That Yoda is pretty cool.  PEPSI STAR WARS YODA LIFE SIZE

Bob has that R2 just sitting in his collection room empty, better if it had beer in it.  ;)

I saw this....gotta have it!!!

I have never been too excited over the lifesize.  Between the size and room I need to display them....and how much they cost once they make it to the secondary market, I have not been too interested.

but this one I will have to try hard to hunt down. 

Looks 100 times better than any previous lifesize Yoda that anybody has done before.

Really?  Great, hopefully that will drive the price back down and I can find one closer to home.

I've seen the R2 coolers at a couple different Wal-Marts lately too. One also had the life-size Yoda on display, but instead of having 'Pepsi' on the base like the one in the picture a few posts up, it had the EpIII logo on it. (which is an improvement in my opinion)

I won one of these through a promotion at my local Publix Supermarket. It was something you had to mail in for, Pepsi will be shipping him to my house within a couple of weeks! 

Also won one of the new R2 coolers from Kmart a couple of weeks ago. Perhaps I should buy a lotto ticket! ;D Feeling rather lucky!

Very nice Sharon.

No draw around here for the Yoda, though I have seen it and it's great. 

The draws for the R2 cooler have not gone yet either, so I'm hoping for that still.

Gotta love it when luck is on your side!

Anyone have a picture of the new Life-size Yoda?  All I can find is the Episode 1 version.

This is an auction for the one Sharon is talking about  I'd suggest it might even be a little bigger than life size.  It was elevated when I saw it (yes, I was tempted to walk out with it, it looked unsecured) but I think it was a little over 2 feet tall. 

Very, very nice and I am very jealous.

Wow!  Jealous is right.

This is 10 times better than the Episode 1 version.  I LOVE action poses for statues.
