Yes pretty big. I don't just stick to vintage for it, literally anything that is Yoda or has Yoda in the packaging goes in to the collection. I did a limelight on here a while ago but need to update it as have added to it and imageshack have shut my account so some pictures have gone.

Never seen them before but there were about 7-8 different figures available.
I've compared the trooper to my black series figure and it's lass than a centimetre smaller and not quite as good quality. But much bigger and more detailed than the 3.75 range.
Second pic added to show scale...

Cheers for the tip off, they have a Han original in that £6.99 range at Aldi, ripped him out of the box and he's on display in the Han focus.. really poor quality close up/in hand, but in the display cabinet he looks great. Funny how the blaster is moulded as part of the figures hand and not removable.

Last one from Forbidden Planet Cov.
The head sculpt is a lot better than some recent photos I've seen.

Went to a local toy fair the other day and picked up this miss-card, as I have always had a soft spot for bendems, thought it may be quite rare, until I checked e-bay and saw loads, only a fiver though, what semi vintage can you buy for a fiver these days :D

The leia figure is cool, glad they brought out that version of the princess, the head sculpt isn't great but it'll do.
Nice bendems figures, I have a soft spot for them to, love the cardart for them, nice miscard to, I have quite a few now, as you say cheap as chips

Picked this up today, taken me a couple of weeks to finally source one from my local comic shop. Might be the start of a slippery road into Pop figures!!
