Check out a special Facebook Sneak Peek of the "just arrived" Yoda, The Jedi Master [Brown Snake] PGM exclusive Jumbo Vintage Kenner Figure. It's pretty cool in general. It comes packaged on a Return Of The Jedi card back (which is only for the exclusive version) and brown snake, as well as intentionally mismatched hands and feet. Gentle Giant Ltd. may have missed the boat here however. While this error version did exist (the mismatching), Kenner eventually released a corrected verison of the brown snake Yoda where his head color does match his hands and feet. So we're slightly disappointed that they didn't go with the corrected version instead. Also, there were two different types of brown snakes. One was plastic like the orange version, but then they changed the material and the second verison was rubbery. Guess which one PGMs get with this release?! The last error that actually bugs us a bit is that they used the wrong color cane. The "brown snake" Yoda came with a dark brown cane. This one comes with the lighter "orange snake" version. Too many mistakes for an expensive item like this!
It's also short in supply! Check those inboxes PGMs! We have just learned that Gentle Giant Ltd. doesn't have enough units of the PGM exclusive Brown Snake Yoda Jumbo Vintage Kenner Figure for all that pre-ordered it. They have alerted all those affected via email. You may have to wait as long as July before you receive yours. If you received a processing notice instead, you should be in the clear.
