I have this Yoda and I can't find another example like him any where. He has a green snake (degradation or no, it's green now) a similar belt and can to the Ledy Yoda, and a grayish head with much greener limbs. (See photos) I've seen some similar examples out there, but none of them on a card like this one. Anybody know what his story is? Cheers!

Note the 'K' factory code.  It's seems a trend that ESB era 'K' figures are prone to degradation.

Yoda baggie Ledy/Kenner like acc.

Thanks for the reply! Looks like the same Yoda to me. What's the story on the K code? Judging by the card, I was guessing that this guy was probably originally sold somewhere in the States. It's just that every example I've found online has been bagged like the one in your photos.

Different factory code = different punch & generally different figure.  From Coco's limelight http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1002373/

Hi,

So is there a genuine recognized Yoda green snake variant, or are they all just degraded brown snakes?
