DUO DAY: Star Wars character billboards...

Yoda Dodgertown billboard
With Star Wars characters returning to the skies of L.A. for the re-release of The Phantom Menace in 3D, Daily Billboard was also excited to see Darth Vader doing his bit to promote the newly upgraded Star Tours attraction at Disneyland in California, which is also in 3D.

Daily Billboard then remembered another fantastic Star Wars themed billboard from a few years ago featuring Jedi master, Yoda, from the animated Clone Wars series.

Daily Billboard isn't sure whether he was familiar with baseball (although with the way he swings that lightsaber you never know), but he was drafted in as part of the Dodgertown ad campaign for the Los Angeles Dodgers along with a whole slew of other famous faces.

His glittering lightsaber really stood out from a distance and the "My Town This Is" slogan was a witty play on his distinctive speech pattern.

The Yoda billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard at Cahuenga Boulevard on July 10, 2009, whilst the dark side's Darth Vader was photographed along Sunset Boulevard on January 18, 2012.

May the Force be with you.
