Hair Rooting Master for Talking Yoda Doll
A rooting master for the life-like hair on the legendary unproduced Talking Yoda Doll. The head is an unpainted first shot produced in the actual scale of the production toy (although with harder plastic).

The back of the head shows the more interesting detail. In addition to the hand-sewn hair along the top showing the rooting pattern for the production toy, there are signoff markings from the people involved in approving the toy for production.

Early prototypes for the Talking Yoda doll head have turned up in the form of electroform rotocast mold and painted first shot head. Unfortunately, this toy never saw the light of day as the pull-string Yoda never reached production.
