Yoda-Spinning Jedi Master!
This is my entry for Yuri Fassio's "Spinning Top Contest" in the Middle Weight Category (16-100 pcs) with a total of 98 pieces! I've been wanting to build a proper Moodland scale Yoda for a while and this contest gave me the chance. I'm pretty sure I've stretched the definition of "spinning top" with this entry, but he really does spin! As always, please RATE and COMMENT:)
About this creation







The key to his spinning ability is that one modified tile piece on his back!














"Quite flexible I am, ladies! EHEHEHEHEEE!"








Alternate mode: Spinning Lightsaber Attack!

Now that is a top! The funny part is, I could see Yoda pulling a move like that in battle!

Haha, nice job. Yoda is a showoff! Plus, now you're not alone with your expanding-the-definition-of-top philosophy - I've made a spinning genie! Anyway, excellent work, as always!

Quoting Commander Hawk I haven't got lucky with any of my 88 MOCs!I don't know but the most ratings I've got on one MOC is 14 likes.
Don't feel bad. It took me a LONG time to get truly noticed by others and commented on. Just stay active, comment on as many other builds as you can, and build, build, build!

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Thanks, everybody, for the kind words and ratings! I wasn't expecting this guy to be as popular as he is!
It's yoda, and it is you, don't flatter yourself. :) I've only had a few occurances of mass popularity. I got lucky with Aayla's Jedi Starfighter. I guess there are a ton of Aayla fans.

Quoting The Pied Pauper $$ Awesome! Moodland scale AND a spinning top! Now all we need is some Run DMC in the background (DMC standing for "Da Midget of the Council")!!
HA! Yoda can definately bust a move!

Quoting Mister Bones Brilliant! If this does not win then I will be surprised. Getting the balance right for it to spin must have been a bit of a labor.
In order to get it to balance, I just thought about what worked with my R2-DTOP and went from there.

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J There goes my midgets ... and I thought hunchbacks cannot do a backspin. The force is strong in Yoda!
I think your midget entry is hilarious!

Quoting Connor Simpson Arghh! This guarantees that I have no hope of winning the midweight contest. However, that minor disappointment is completely overwhelmed by how incredibly awesome this top is! Absolutely genius, and easily my favorite entry to the contest. Excellent work and good luck!
I wouldn't give up hope of winning. You never know which way Yuri will lean:)

And we thought he went crazy in Episode II! Who knew he could do this?! That modified piece is really smart. If only his knees could bend, actually, he dousn't have knees. He has a hip and an ankle. But whatch gonna do? Really cool as usual Mr. Swim.
