Near misses with Monkeys in sci-fi number 2

Have a look at Yoda in this picture taken during the making of the Empire Strikes Back. The Henson Creature Shop did such a bang-up job with bringing him to life that it's testament to them that many Star Wars fans prefer him over the more recent lightsaber-weilding CG version we've all seen leapfrogging around the screen over the past few years. Actually, thinking about it, why the helll didn't Yoda have his lightsaber with him on Dagobah? Anyhow, lets not get started in Star Wars inconsistencies. Just consider that this lovely Special Effect based character was almost pupeteered...

...by him.
