Vintage Figure Spotlight: Yoda from The Empire Strikes Back
The Empire Strikes Back introduced us to Yoda, the nine-hundred-year-old Jedi Master that trained two of the most important Jedi in recent history, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker. In Empire, Luke was guided to Dagobah by a vision of his former mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi and stumbled upon Yoda by accident. After revealing himself as Yoda, the Jedi Master began Luke’s training. This vintage Yoda reminds us of those scenes in which the elfin Jedi Master pushes Luke to brave more physical and mental challenges than he had ever faced before in an effort to mold the reckless youth into a Jedi.
The “vintage” Yoda has some exciting new features that distinguish it from the original. The original Yoda came with a u-shaped snake that only worked to hang around his neck; the new Yoda comes with a u-shaped snake that can be coiled around his neck, cane, or arm. In addition, the new Yoda is the first to have leg articulation, which is a difficult design feature to accomplish on such a small figure.
Yoda has 10 points of articulation, including a ball-jointed head/neck and both shoulders. He has angled bicep articulation and standard articulation at the wrists, waist, and legs. Sculpted holding his cane (also known as a gimmer stick), Yoda wears his Dagobah necklace and comes with a soft goods skirt and removable soft goods cloak.
Yoda is packaged in the OTC packaging from The Empire Strikes Back. Like the other vintage packages, Yoda’s package was designed using a Kenner-exclusive character photograph. As you may have read in the Vintage Darth Vader Feature (here), The Empire Strikes Back packaging has some elements that differ from the A New Hope packaging that you saw for Obi-Wan, Han, Leia, and Luke. Yoda’s The Empire Strikes Back packaging includes:
- Single silver bar around the character image but double silver bars around the movie title
- Removal of the Luke & Leia image first seen on the A New Hope packaging
- Removal of the price box
- Yellow accent color behind Yoda figure
- Coffin-style blister
- Butterfly peg hook, die-cut but not punched out!
- And the Kenner logo
The vintage package is completed with a new, official Star Wars clamshell with Rebel and Imperial logos in the upper-left and -right hand corners as well as an embossed, official Star Wars logo on the back.
As explained in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Feature (May 20, 2004), the back of the vintage Yoda card is different from the “12-back” originals. For legal reasons, Hasbro cannot cross-sell old figures on current products, nor can we display old promotional offers that were on some originals. However, the new cross-sell harkens back to the 70’s with its accent colour (matching the front) and displays pictures of the original packages for reference.
Looks very good!
The snake is behind Yoda but at first glance it does look like a light reflection off the bubble
Personally, I'm not phased too much about the ROTJ Artoo cardback, but yeah I agree it's not impresseive. I'm more concerned about Hasbro releasing him with the accurate sensorscope this time as opposed to the periscope. I would be ticked about releasing him w/o any feature at all!
