We have posted a LEGO® R2-D2 and a C3PO, and Aidan decided that it was time to create a Yoda!  He worked and worked on Yoda’s head, and I am pretty impressed with his final version.

This Yoda is a great size to go with the R2-D2 that Aidan built.  You can see our other Star Wars projects here:  C3PO and R2-D2

LEGO Yoda Building Instructions

Here’s how to build Yoda!

Step 1:  Begin Yoda’s head with two 2 x 4 plates.

Step 2:  Add two more 2 x 4 plates on top, and then two 2 x 6 plates on top of those.

Step 3:  Add a layer of bricks.  Make sure that the brick in the middle hangs over by 1 stud.

Step 4:  Add Yoda’s mouth.  One 2 x 4 lime green plate, then a black 2 x 4 plate, and another 2 x 4 lime green plate.

Step 5:  On top of the pieces from step 4, add a 2 x 2 brick in the center, two 1 x 2 plates (one on each side), and two 1 x 1 bricks with a stud on the side.  Find two eyes and two 1 x 1 round plates to put behind each eye.

Step 6:  Attach the eyes.  Then build the sides of the face.  Each section is a 1 x 3 brick, a 1 x 2 brick, and a 1 x 2 curved slope. (Yoda totally looks like a frog at this stage, ha ha!)

Step 7:  Attach the sides of the face.

Step 8:  This step begins the next section of Yoda’s head.  Build this shape, two layers high.

Step 9:  Add two 1 x 1 bricks and two 2 x 4 plates between them.

Step 10:  Add four 1 x 2 slopes and one 1 x 2 brick.  This leaves a slight gap on either side.  You can fill in the gap with two 1 x 1 plates on each side, or just leave it.  We didn’t have those pieces.

Step 11:  Create two sections as shown below. Each section has two 1 x 2 slopes, one 1 x 1 brick, and one 1 x 2 plate.

Step 12:  Attach both sections to the head.

Step 13:  Attach the front of the head to the back of the head.

Step 14:  Build the next section shown.  This section is a 2 x 4 plate, four 1 x 2 slopes, and a 1 x 2 brick.

Step 15:  Add this to the head behind the eyes.

Step 16:  Build Yoda’s ears and top of the head as shown below.

Step 17:  Attach this final section to the head.

Step 18:  Start building Yoda’s body.  This is the bottom layer.

Step 19:  Add two more layers.

Step 20:  Add a fourth layer.  Add two tan 1 x 2 plates in the front left (Yoda’s right) corner as shown.

Step 21:  Add a 2 x 2 lime green plate on top of the two 1 x 2 plates from the last step.  Then add another layer of bricks including a 2 x 2 lime green brick for the other hand.

Step 22:  The rest of the body is five more layers.  Shape the arms as shown and use 1 x 2 brown slopes to create a v-neck tunic.

LEGO Yoda

Step 23:  Add 2 x 4 lime green plates as feet on the bottom.  Add a 2 x 6 tan plate on the back of the body to balance out the feet.

LEGO Yoda

Step 24:  Attach the head to the body!  Add a stack of brown 1 x 2 bricks for Yoda’s staff.
