    It's a trophy. Yoda murdered Vader in cold blood. Justice for Vader!

    That would probably be a first because this isnt the first mask to have a movie character on it. As for the article saying using the prequel Yoda is a fopa prolly doesn't understand that Bryz wanted an action pose and that none exist outside of the prequels. They also didnt notice that Vader is done in a cartoon style so if they used the original Yoda it wouldn't match

    He's started hogging articles now too; against his own will even. Piggy fandango is out of control.

    Not a chance. I'm sure they paid the mouse for his seal of approval.

    Perhaps when he posed for it he was under the weather. Maybe his species turns orange since he's already green.

    Ah-boo.

    I was going to make a joke that this was the only story about Hockey I've followed all season, and when I went to the standings to come up with material for the joke I noticed the Blackhawks haven't bothered to lose a game yet? WTF? Why is that not national news?

    Because were not canada. trust me its big news up north and technically they lost 3 in either OT or a shootout which means they still got a single point for the game but it's still a pretty huge deal to be 22gms into a season and not lost in regulation

    http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/pattisonave/Bryzgalovs-Star-Wars-mask-gets-an-update.html


    There has been a lot of buzz about Ilya Bryzgalov's new Star Wars themed goalie mask since it was first revealed, and the Flyers have even managed to climb above the .500 mark for the first time all season since he started wearing it on the ice.
    The initial feedback to the facemask was positive, as Flyers fans liked the look and found it fitting for Bryzgalov.
    However, not everyone was completely satisfied with the recreation of the classic characters, as a representative from Lucasfilm Ltd., Star Wars’ parent company, reached out to the Flyers to have an incorrect aspect of the color scheme corrected.
    The mask, painted by Franny Drummond, initially depicted Yoda wielding a red light saber, which is a sign of the evil Sith Lords. In the films, however, Yoda used a green light saber, as Star Wars fanatics were quick to point out.
    Thus, the people at Lucasfilm wanted the mask altered to accurately reflect the film.

    i agree.


    but they copied a licensed img
    and then made it their own in a incorrect way

    but brown/tan yoda does look fucking cool and it does stand out better on the mask.
