Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,086: Yoda (The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 1, 2014

If you're looking for a figure that aspires to give you 1980 engineering with 2014 prices and sculpting, Yoda is it! The new The Black Series 3 3/4-inch figure has a cane, flute, coat, belt, and backpack while somehow only having 5 points of articulation at about $11.   It fits in his backpack just fine, and the jacket needs some fidgeting - but is it good otherwise?  Read on!
