We like Yoda, but this is sort of creepy looking. This the work of Andrea Eusebi, who has created a Yoda using a plastiline modeling clay. He has taken the green little Jedi master and made him look like an aged grandfather with really impressive ears.

Perhaps because this author spent most of his Fourth of July holiday in a county that is shared with Lucas' Skywalker Ranch, but when we saw these fantastic famous photographs recreated with Star Wars characters, we felt a bit if kinship.
