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 Overall though - it's an outdated - but still charming Yoda action figure.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.
