Life-Size Yoda in Carbonite

Is this allowed? Putting Yoda in Carbonite? I would almost rather Jeff Teo put, like, Captain Kirk or Rudy Huxtable in Carbonite, because then at least the metaphor would be totally, obviously F'd up, as opposed to just sort of off in a potentially subtextual and meaningful way that I do not understand. But this is what we have. Yoda, 32" tall, 18" wide, and 3" deep in RTV silicone rubber "Carbonite", ready for wall-mounting on any surface that can support 4.4 pounds of a Star Wars superstar.

Teo, also responsible for the Life-Size Ghostbusters Slimer, 3D sculpts all of his wall art individually--Yoda is a signed original, not a recast like Don Cheadle in Iron Man or Maggie Gyllenhaal in The Dark Knight trilogy. Speaking of recasts, did you know that Eric Stolz was originally slated to play Marty McFly in Back to the Future? He was 5 weeks into filming when he got the axe for not being funny enough. Tough break, Stolz, but as someone who regularly finds himself in the company of people who are not funny enough, I can certainly sympathize with Zemeckis on that one too.
