The search for Yoda

There are many great things about my family. This chain of e-mails about a Yoda figurine is just one example of how we're quirky but will do just about anything for each other :) We also have a good sense of humor about most things, including children's toys.

Hi Juj,
The favor I have to ask of you is to please look for a Yoda play figure the next time you go by the store which is at the exit of the Star Wars ride @ Disney. Michael bought a 4-pack of figures, in which Yoda was one of them, which came with a commemorative tin, from that particular store. (I do not know if they sell Yoda by himself, or not) Unfortunately, Bandit [the dog] got a hold of Yoda, and chewed his legs off by the time we realized he had the toy in his mouth. We have not been able to locate a Yoda at any of the stores nearby, so I was hoping you could be on the ‘lookout’ for one for us, if possible.

Hi Nene,
Wanted to let you know I did see a Star Wars gift set at MouseGear yesterday (at EPCOT). It had Yoda, R2D2, C3PO, Chewbaca, a storm trooper, Darth Vader, and a couple other creatures. The set cost $12.99. The Yoda was approx 2" (maybe 2.5") tall. His legs were covered by his robe. He was not holding a light sabre. The box was horizontally rectangular (2 rows of characters, maybe 5 across) Wanted to see if that sounded like Michael's gift set.

Re: Yoda Update
Thank you for the update, & thanks for being on the lookout for Yoda! The set you mentioned is not the same set that Michael's Yoda came from, & his set was a bit more costly w/only (4) characters, but it did come with a commemorative tin, so maybe that's why it was a higher price.
Michael's Yoda had his legs covered by his robe, too, & was the appx size you listed. It's hard to say if it's the same one, but it probably is.

Hi Juj,
I just want to let you know that we found Yoda at SuperK on Saturday….yay! Believe it or not, Michael still had a return to make from Christmas & found Yoda, so the search is over.
