Eat Your Brains I Will, Yes.

Yoda is a zombie! Aieeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!

Ok, so this doesn't look like a Halloween product at first glance, but Target store managers realized it belonged with all the Halloween merchandise, because that's exactly where they put this Yoda bobblehead figure. What the hell happened to him? I know the guy lives in the swamps of Dagobah, not exactly the nicest place to vacation, but he's clearly seen better days than this. Let's just come right out and say it: Yoda looks like a zombie.

In a galaxy far, far away... they did the mash.

Well, it turns out this is part of a new line of Funko Star Wars "Monster Mash-Ups" bobblehead figures, and while it's funny seeing Darth Vader as Frankenstein's monster, a Stormtrooper as a Skeleton (Skeletrooper?), and Chewbacca as the Wolfman, the "bloodthirsty gargoyle" Yoda is just downright frightening.

I've always loved Yoda, what with the amusing way he communicates in reversed fragments and enjoys riding on Luke piggyback style, but this twisted rendition of his face is the last thing I want to see bobbling around on my dashboard every day. Seriously, just look at it:

Those lifeless eyes... they're piercing my soul like a hot knife through butter

Look at those eyes... bloodshot, lifeless and I'm sure they'd show absolutely no remorse over eating you and your loved ones alive. And honestly, is there a scarier thought than that of a zombie with Grand Master Jedi powers? One minute you're walking down the road, minding your own business, the next you're willfully handing over your guts on a platter because some zombie pulled the ol' Jedi mind trick on you. Sorry, but a Jedi craves not these things. Big thanks to both Ava and Brad for pointing out this disturbance in the Force to me.

SURVEY: If you were going to turn a character from the Star Wars universe into a monster, what would you turn them into and why? I'll start us off. I'd turn a Jawa into one of the dwarfs from Phantasm. Hell, they're already the same height and wearing the same outfit... all they'd need is the Tall Man to lead them. BOYYYYY! OOTINI!

Well I think the franchise needs to officially change it's name to "Star Whores" at this point because lucas will apparently whore out his beloved characters for ANY product imaginable.

Seriously, three good films and 2 or 3 so-so ewok films are the only thing star wars ever had going for it. Now with all the damage the prequels had on his reputation, lucas has put merchandising in overdrive, ruining any credibility he ever had.

Ok rant over....

Answering your question.

Jabba the Blob... I mean he's practically there already.

Count han Van Solo (Vampire) ... afterall he already wears a leather vest so he's limited to the occupations of charming rogue, gay man, pirate or vampire.

Yoda looks like he has been into drugs recently. Although this doesn't qualify as a monster per se, I think Bib Fortuna would do well as a new version of Earthworm Jim.

Princess Leia as Godzilla


Daddy A (Guest) on 09/21/2010 11:00 am

Young Anakin as the I like turtles kid. It would vastly improve the movie.


KoMoDo (Guest) on 09/21/2010 12:35 pm

@HowardC If they did Count Han Von Solo the vampire then they'd definetly need Boba Helsing, the most feared vampire hunter in the galaxy.

The biggest monster of all, George Lucas.

I'd see your Dwarf Guy Jawa from Phantasm and Raise you an Angus Scrimm Emperor Palpatine, Rog.

Just think, Dark Side powers and chrome bladed balls of death (not to mention being from whatever world the Tall Man is from.).

"Beedo"? Really? It's Greedo, you heathen.

-RoG- on 09/21/2010 3:10 pm

Haha, I don't know where he got "Beedo" from either, but Greedo is the perfect choice for Creature From the Black Lagoon. No doubt about it.

Jabba as The Blob and Tall Man as Emperor Palpatine could definitely work too.

As for George Lucas, I think he'd be better suited as Harold Howard from Teen Wolf:

The only Lagoony is Admiral Ackbar!
C-3PO as a golem would be pretty hilarious.. and R2D2 seems kinda like one of those lil ghostys from Pac-Man..

I think I would like to see Lando's Co-Pilot as a Nyalrthotep kind of Outer Horror.

I kind of wish Target used Domo-kun for Halloween again.

I wish we could get these over in the UK. Probably can, I just can't be asked to look.

Ok, how about the Sarlacc pit starring in that movie Teeth about the woman's vagoo that eats up on people.

Here is an easy one for you, Darth Maul as the The Devil or Dengar as a Zombie. Did you ever really see that guy? Gross!

User avatar

I want Vader! And I find it amusing they did a zombie Storm Trooper, given the book "Death Troopers" out there.

Let's see...Star Wars charries as monsters. Um...Not much of a SW buff myself, so, um, oooh, um, what about the Death Star techs, the ones with the shiny black helmets as Xenomorphs?

(Yeah, lame, I know, but the only thing I could think of.)

I think there needs to be a zombie Jabba the hut, preferrably with some zombie minions/bounty hunters still working for him and catching people to feed to him.

Hugglebump (Guest) on 09/24/2010 1:25 am

How about Admiral Akbar as the guy from Mask?


Zombie-Man (Guest) on 09/24/2010 1:32 am

Darth Maul as Pin Head ( or whatever the hell is called the guy from Hellraiser ) and Luke as Michael Myers!

DAMMIT! I can't figure out what Lando Calrician (I think I spelled that correctly) would be monstertarily!

An interesting fact: Peter Cushing (Grand Moff Tarken)Played Dr. Frankenstein, in one of the later Frankenstein movies circa 1973(I think), and the Monster was played by David Prowse (Darth Vader).
