Are you tired of purple holographic Star Wars figures? We thought we would want to see every character (who appeared this way in the Star Wars films) done up in this very plain way, but we have to admit it’s becoming a little bit boring. Purple isn’t even the correct color for this type of effect. In every Star Wars film, holograms were illuminated with blue light. So we’re disappointed to see the continuous use of translucent purple plastic. Thank goodness before the Revenge Of The Sith line finished up that Hasbro managed to squeeze in two final holographic action figures. Aayla Secura (III 67) and Plo Koon (III 66) were triumphs and acquired the effect very well. Cast in light blue plastic and some sort of glittery substance was added to help catch the light make these standout holographic action figure. Admittedly, there is still something curious about Holographic Yoda, but we would totally understand if this concept wasn’t your bag at all.
Holographic Yoda (Kashyyyk Transmission) has been produced by taking 2003’s Yoda & Chian (’03 #15) figure two-pack and casting the Yoda figure in purple translucent plastic. To add a bit more value, Hasbro also took the Felucia inspired action figure stand from the 2005 Revenge Of The Sith line and cast it in the same style too. This sculpt of Yoda is good for a holographic version of him. Since it’s molded from solid clear plastic, it’s not important to utilize a figure with an inordinate amount of detail and articulation. They certainly ignored this fact when developing 2005’s ROTS Aayla Secura (III 67) figure, but we have found that less detail and articulation makes for a much better holographic action figure. Just look at 2005’s ROTS Plo Koon (III 66) figure for this evidence. The less you can see point of articulation in a holographic action figure, the more authentic the effect will be. And in retrospect, it makes figures like Holographic Yoda (Kashyyyk Transmission) look that much worse.
Status: Holographic Yoda (Kashyyyk Transmission) is a rework of the Yoda figure from 2003's Yoda & Chian (Padawan Lightsaber Training) ('03 #15) two-pack. This time the figure has been cast in translucent purple colored plastic to recreate a hologram effect.
