The short Jedi has a clear green lightsaber and a cane, clearly not the same as the gimer stick from the original trilogy. His hands were a little wide for the accessories, so getting him to grip them properly may present a low-level challenge. The lightsaber lacks the "flare" at the base, so it should be an easy-to-identify weapon in future piles of accessories. Unless, of course, they make another dozen Yodas... and if that spin-off movie happens, they probably will. He also has a cloak that's a separate rubbery piece, but you're not supposed to remove it.
As rapid prototyping gets better, we're going to see more fine detail on some action figures. Yoda's is pretty impressive, but you have to get in real close with ample lighting to notice. The figure is not visually impressive for eight bucks, but the shoulder joints and sculpted detail were enough to get me to take it to the registers with a smile. Get if if you can find one.
Force Link Notes: "Destroy the Sith we must." "Judge me by my size, do you?" "Use the Force." "The dark side I sense in you." Lightsabers.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Walmart, and I was surprised to see it.
