Time for Yoda Shelf Porn it is

by  in Comic News Comment

Happy Saturday and welcome to Shelf Porn. Today’s collection comes all the way from Dagobah — “where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda” — as Joey Endres shares his collection of Yoda toys, statues and more.

If you’d like to share your collection here on Robot 6, you can find details on how to do that at the end of the post.

And now let’s hear from Joey.

In my studio I’ve got a bunch of figures, artwork and comics, but certainly my pride and joy is my Yoda collection, displayed in a lit cabinet. The collection ranges from 1980 to present.

I’ve been collecting Yodas since I was a kid – I was at the perfect age of nine when the first movie came out, and I still have my original Kenner Yoda figure in mint condition, cloak, snake, staff and all. Since then the collection slowly amassed. My parents, my wife and my two daughters have joined in the search with me, and even visitors to my home that have seen the collection have been on the lookout for new stuff.

The first picture is the cabinet itself, which houses nearly 100 collectibles.


On the first shelf is a scale version of Yoda’s lightsaber, and a collection of the Kenner figures across the front, including my very first in the middle.


The second shelf features a number of variant Yodas and Yoda-related figures, including some picked up at Stat Tours in Disney,


The third shelf is mostly bobble heads, the 1980 rubber hand puppet and a “magic 8-ball” version.


The fourth and fifth shelf have some dolls, a gumball machine, buttons and fast food collectibles.
