Yoda (Firing Cannon!)
Review by JoshB
Yoda is a tough character to do a nice figure of. He is so tiny! I remember constantly losing the cane from the vintage figure when I was a kid.
This figure, from the Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith Collection, is probably one of the better Yoda figures ever made. The diminutive Jedi master comes with a lightsaber, cloak, and missile firing cannon.
Yoda has 2 ball jointed shoulders, ball jointed head, swivel wrists, swivel hips, and ball jointed feet! The only thing he is really missing is a waist-joint. Yoda can spread his arms to look like he is ready to make a force attack, or his hands can come together to both grab his saber at the same time. The cloak is made of a firm rubber, so it only looks good in a select few poses.
The cannon features an adjustable front leg and spring loaded missile, activated by a button on top. Yoda can grab the cannon's handles with both hands. I assume this cannon is supposed to represent something from the Wookie battle, but in the movie, Yoda does not fire any such cannon. I suppose they had to put something else in to add to the play value, because Yoda alone does not a $5.99 figure make.
