Yak Face Kubrick (Chase) by Medicom Toy

April 16, 2013

The original Yak Face figure from Kenner was never released in the US and remains one of the rarer vintage Star Wars figures. Whoever is in charge of the Star Wars line of Kubricks at Medicom Toy seems to be quite a fan of the vintage figures, since they’ve made a number of nods to it in their figure selections over the years. This figure came out in Series 7, but was not one of the standard figures. Instead he was a “chase” figure that would only be found in certain boxes at (semi) random. Naturally, this makes him considerably more rare and valuable, which seems fitting considering the history of the Kenner figure.

He comes with a vibro-axe and a nice cloak that is painted in an attractive gradient. You can see him in my Jabba’s palace display below. It’s pretty much complete. I don’t have the chase versions of Boba Fett (ROTJ version) or Bib Fortuna (Red Cloak) but since they’re so similar to the normal versions, I don’t think I’ll be picking them up unless I can find a really good deal.
