I found this thread about yoda and coo.


In the past i had 3 yoda but only one cape, cane and snake. I kept the one with the most nice condition. At that time i had no knowledge about variation, i probably made the wrong association. i don't know his factory origine. I bought them in 2003.

Yoda has the coo 1, coo hongkong attached, Brown/orange eyes and pale green


An orange snake ( first floats and sinks once submerged ), the V3 belt, cape and one brown or reddish brown cane, hard to say the right color of the cane ( no painted, flexible, floats and sinks once submerged )

I didn't think canes that dark were generally seen with light green, orange snake Yodas. I think they're more associated with the darker green Yodas, with brown snakes.

Thanks Cal, yes i had a darker green yoda, so i did the wrong association in the past. I will fix that later.

You're welcome. I can say for sure my brown snake Yoda has that belt, as well.

Here is mine, just won it on eBay this morning !! So excited to have this guy now , is it Lili Ledy rare Hong Kong version ?? I followed the tread but seems there is no clear answer regarding the right accessories , is that right ??

The Yoda meets all the characteristics above , COO#3 with the deformed copyright. I won it this morning on eBay listing 323016909184 , here are the pictures from it ... He has deep green hands and legs and an olive head , he was only with his cape , will need to get him his snake , belt , and cane (are these Kenner or Ledy’s? , brown flexible rubber or brown plastic or orange ? ) ... paid nearly $20 for him but thought it was worthy , so excited to have found him Smile
Look forward to your comments and help!
Pictures are from the original listing , can take more once I receive it !!

Check out page 1 of this thread. I don't think this is a Ledy Yoda, but it is from the same mold family. I have a Yoda from this same mold family that came in a baggie in the Darth Vader case. His accessories are what I would call "Ledy Kenners" Basically, they aren't exactly like Ledy accessories, but they are similar in that they have the same EPM as Ledy accessories. Mine is missing his cane, but does have his snake (Was brown, but discolored to green. Am I lucky for this?) and belt. The real issue you're going to run into here is getting the right accessories, because most will probably list accessories with these EPM marks as Ledy, and they will be very expensive. But, it's important to keep in mind, they are different in ways, and it's worth it to look for the ways they are different. The rest is up to you because you have to build some confidence in your knowledge.

Hi !! Thanks for the prompt reply !! Awesome !! The olive head has the strings in his waist molded straight which is also the case in Ledy’s yodas . Nice to know this came in a baggie with the Vader and also in a 5 -pack ! I am good at spotting variants and accesories in listing , also patient , glad I could get a hold of this olive head yoda ! You are very lucky that you got his brown green plastic snake he ought to have !! You also figured a good piece of the puzzle. May the force be with you Carlrissian_Charm!! Thanks so much !!

This coo was shared by kenner and ledy. This figure seen is the kenner one I am fairly certain. The ledy should have an orangish brown eye color.

Like if told him, it looks to me to be the bagged Yoda that came in the Vader case and multipack (was it 8?)
