Yoda! Quite simply one of my favourite figures. I think he's fabulous! At first glance, parents (and some kids!) back in the eighties might have thought this was poor value for money, since it cost the same as the other larger figures. However, that is to ignore the fact that, firstly, the sculpt is terrific (one of the vintage line's very best, IMHO), and secondly, no figure ever came with more accessories! Count them, there's 4 of them! That makes Yoda joint top on the accessory count front alongside Leia Endor and Squid Head, but those last two were from Jedi. Yoda came not only first, but years earlier, and eclipsed all of his fellow ESB figures on the accessory front with his Gimer stick, belt, cloak and hissing necklace ;-)

So yes, Yoda is tiny, but he's got it where it counts, and he's also got it on the variant front too! Jay will doubtless be able to enlighten us further with regards to sculpts and their factories of origin, so I will bow to his superior knowledge on that front. However, what I do know is that he came in lots of different shades of green (Yoda, not Jay), from very light green, to grey green, to darker green, to bright 'apple' green, to dark PBP / Lili Ledy green. There's a veritable spectrum of greenery to be had! And then there's his snake and stick which also come in different shades! Fabulous stuff!

Here's my spectrum, from left to right:

Palitoy 30 Back, light green with light brown eyes, light green with cherry eyes, darker green with dark brown snake, darker green with light brown snake, darker green with green snake, brighter darker green with orange snake (a Kenner issue, I think!), grey head, Poch 'apple' green (at least I think this is what is commonly referred to as 'apple' green, but please correct me if I'm wrong), and lastly a PBP (which again, please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe is almost identical to the Lili Ledy Yoda).

And lastly, on the carded front, I have a Kenner 32B (the very first ESB card I bought when I got back into collecting again in the 90's) and a Palitoy 30 back reseal.

Hi i'm Russ

C-3PO (Return of the Jedi): I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.

Thanks Nick. Those are some nice examples of your own... As for why your card is laying down, did it get knocked over when the mice got at it? ;-)

Great stuff guys. I’ll read this in more detail when I’m back from the Isle of Wight and post up mine. Been looking forward to this thread and typical that it had to come when I was away from my collection :lol:
