In 1981 Lucasfilm commissioned famed Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie to design their annual company holiday card. The front of the card features Yoda in a festive Santa outfit, while on the card interior an alternate drawing of the Jedi Master is depicted. Two different versions of this card where [sic] available. One blue and one white. Now for the 2013 Holiday Season Gentle Giant Ltd. offers the Yoda (Holiday Edition) Jumbo Action Figure!
Christmas comes a bit early this year in more ways than one with the Premier Guild Exclusive Jumbo Vintage Kenner Holiday Yoda figure. Not only is the figure itself a memento for the holiday Christmas season, Yoda comes with a few gifts of his own as a special treat to faithful supporters of the line. We’ll get to the Yoda figure in a moment, but it’s perhaps what’s inside of his sack that will pique the interests of collectors of other formats the most. Inside collectors will find a micro-scaled version of the Star Wars Boba Fett Jumbo Vintage Kenner Figure, the very first commercially available figure from the line. It sort of celebrated the successful run Gentle Giant Ltd. has endured with the line as well as give something extra special to those that love everything “vintage” based. Boba Fett arrives at about two inches tall and FULLY ARTICULATED, is perfectly proportioned to the original 3.75” Kenner figure and comes in an easily re-sealable clamshell package. The removable card back is also fully decorated on the front and the back and to top things off, Gentle Giant Ltd. also included a micro version of his blaster. What more could you possible is for this Christmas season? We’re hard pressed to think of anything better.
Also included in Yoda’s sack are micro versions of some other Gentle Giant Ltd. products, including the Ree-Yees Mini Bust and the Han Solo statue. All of the collectibles that come in the sack are in complete scale to the Yoda figure. We’re simply amazed at just how much detail went into this holiday collectible how much time the folks at Gentle Giant Ltd. spent thinking of a way to treat long time collectibles to something so very special like this. It’s unbelievable that the “accessories’ in this set will completely overshadow the main collectible in this set: the Yoda figure. But that’s exactly what is going to happen. Anything remotely vintage Boba Fett receives feverish attention from the collecting community. Is Gentle Giant Ltd. perhaps teasing a micro scaled collection of the Jumbo Vintage Kenner Figures line? Is this a tease of what’s to come? How amazing would that be? It seems that Gentle Giant Ltd. are truly full of surprises and that collectors can bask in the fact that their best interests are in mind with this wonderful licensee. Now that we’ve raved about the secondary portions of this set, let’s talk about the Yoda figure.
