John Tyler Christopher has announced the next direct action figure variant for Star Wars #66 featuring Jedi Master Yoda, available to order from June 20th. Here are all the details you need.
I always start these little announcements with a BIG thank you to everyone. I try my best to let everyone know truly how much we appreciate the love and support, and to articulate what it means to us. Especially this past run with Obi-Wan. Dealing with the damages has been one of the most stressful experiences of my professional life, and you have no idea how much your patience and understanding meant to us. Our intention is always to give you the best quality book we can, and although we experienced some hiccups, in the end we hope we were able to meet the standard you deserve. Truly, from everyone involved and myself personally, THANK YOU.
So after all that insanity, I thought it was time to go BIG, and have some fun. This is another one I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. From the first time we laid eyes on him in Empire, we all fell in love. The humor, the wisdom, the wonderful ballads of battling Sea Gulls, there is no character who defines the idea of master like the Degobah kid himself. For my money, the scene where Luke tries to pull his X-Wing out of the mud, through the “and that is why you failed” line, might be one the best in all of cinema. The music, the way it’s shot, and all of the performances still give me chills. This, combined with my sci-fi love of drawing little green men gives me the utmost privilege in announcing…
– JTC EXCLUSIVE full-color YODA: Jedi Master Action Figure Variant for Star Wars #66, exclusively at johntylerchristopher.com
He will be available for Pre-sale on June 20th.
Like before, we are offering graded books of 9.6 or better from both CGC & CBCS. You get to choose between two exceptional grading services.
The book will be limited to 3,000.
So with that out of the way, here’s the slim.
It’s the little things…
One of the perks of this gig, is the ability to create things that I think would be cool and would want to see. As most of you know, I’ve been a Star Wars action figure collector since before I can remember, so I LOVE the Kenner line for so many reasons. But one of my most cherished aspects is style and charm of limitations they had pack then. Now, we can have life-like reproductions with 100 accessories, and actual clothe materials to make the toy as accurate as possible. But back in the day we had the magic of extending lightsabers and the fashion stylings of vinyl “cape/ long vests”. And there is no character that I want to see rocking it old school more than the Master Jedi himself!
