The Empire Strikes Wax - Jedi master Yoda has been recreated at Madame Tussauds for a new exhibition.

The tourist attraction will eventually feature 11 different sets from the hit films including Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader's clash on the Death Star and Princess Leia being held prisoner in Jabba's Throne Room.

This scene shows the 66cm-high figure of Yoda in the swamps of Dagobah as featured in the The Empire Strikes Back.

It took 10 artists four months to make the figure using oil paint for his distinctive green skin and inserting his wispy grey hairs by hand.

Fans should be able to see the set in May.
