Compare this Yoda figure
This Yoda action figure was released individually carded in the The Power Of The Force 2 toy line in 1996- and marked the first time that a new Yoda action figure was released since the original vintage Yoda from the 1980's. The figure is based on Yoda's appearance in The Empire Strikes Back- while he trained Luke Skywalker to become a Jedi Knight.
The figure has 4 swivel joints- one in the neck- two in each shoulder- and one in the hip. Since the legs are molded in one block and can't be moved individually- the figure stands very securely on its own. Kenner included two accessories with Yoda- a walking stick- and a jedi-training-backpack. The walking stick fits only very loosely into either of the figure's hands- and once you move the figure- it's likely to fall out. The bulky backpack is big enough to hold the jedi master- but it's a tight fit- and Yoda needs to be squeezed in a little.
Yoda's paint application is OK for back in the days- with darker brown/dirt towards the bottom of the figure and a cleanly painted face. The figure's sculpt- despite its age and basically no legs- still looks good. Even the face sculpt is done well- and Yoda has about the correct height when placed next to other Star Wars figures. Overall though- it's an outdated- but still charming Yoda action figure.
For over 800 years- the diminutive Jedi Master known as Yoda trained the most committed students in the ways of the Force- guiding them into their roles as Jedi Knights- protectors of peace in the galaxy.
