I'd love to be able to contribute a POTF carded one to this thread, but alas I don't own one. Instead, here are my loose ones; one with a Nikto staff, as came on the POTF card, one with no weapon, as came on the standard Tri-Logo, and one with a black palace blaster, as came on the French Tri-Logo card:

And here's another view of the same three figures, this time without the shittest Yoda ever made obscuring Yak's foot:

Crikey...three absolutely immaculate Yaks.
Great idea to display them in the three variations that were available, really makes a great talking point.

Some great loose pieces there!

I must admit I never knew he had a weapon as my Trilogo did not come with one.
Here's my childhood Yak Face with original cardback and bubble (the bubble can sit back in place pretty well).
I'll add the COO another time.

That childhood Yak is in fantastic condition, looks like you hardly played with it.

A POTF Yak, nice to see one of those!

Thanks, Nick. For a long time I wasn't sure about the black palace blaster version, but I've seen numerous carded versions since confirming the blaster's presence, so my display choice turned out to be correct after all!

Wow they look fantastic, I love your army of Yak Face figures and the different variants of them. I think it is cool that you display them with nikto staff, no weapon and the palace blaster, it looks awesome :wink:

Not so much of a collector these days but amassed a huge collection over 20 years he’s now slowly selling most of it of he’s still a huge Star Wars fan though but just mainly focuses on his club.
