    Yellow snake yoda?

    Hello, a couple years ago I purchased a complete yoda action figure at an antique bazzar at a local shopping mall. I found it with a collection of dozens of european pins and buttons. Mostly German and polish carnival buttons. All were right around 1980's. This perticular Yoda has a different skin tone , yellow snake and slightly diferent belt and cane colorations . It is in great shape and dose not look like these colors have faded and apears to be the way it was produced. I'll post up some pic's. I'm thinking it's a polish made one. My question is how rare is it , seeing polish figures are rare and did I do well buy paying only $5 for it! thanks,Matt.[IMG]/Users/matthewhagg/Users/matthewhaggenmiller/Pictures/iPhoto Library/Masters/2009/Jan 3, 2009/PHOT0254.JPGenmiller/Pictures/iPhoto Library/Masters/2009/Jan 3, 2009/PHOT0256.JPG[/IMG]

    I Still would say faded from beeing in the sun to long. Even the cane turned green (just like chewies limbs can turn green).

    I think it's legitimate. I recall seeing yellow snake Yoda's in toy stores back in the day (Australia), I never bought one though. But it's clearly been a few decades, so I still may be wrong.

    For the most part it looks to be a faded version of the "green snake." So its probably a combination of age causing the green and UV exposure causing it to fade like that.
    When 900 years old you reach look as good you will not.

    I have one too! They are hard to get BUT they are clearly discolored orange snakes! There is NO way this was ever released like this!

    A pitty because I have to admit I like my yellow snake!

    Kinda cool that his orange eyes seem to have discolored to yellow just like the snake, so they match!
