Ashley Beeching sent us pics of his Star Wars memorabilia, including “arguably the most sought- after item”, this Yak- Face Star Wars figure. Kathy Taylor of Vectis says: You have a fine example of a Palitoy/ Kenner Star Wars Yak Face 3 ” Action Figure, dating from 1985. He was one of the “last 17” figures produced during the vintage run covering the first three films, just before the Star Wars line was discontinued.
There were 15 new figures produced along with two bonus figures that were blacked out on the rear of the card ( Ewoks Paploo and Lumat). He is one of the rarer figures – he was not available for retail in the US, and consequently was produced in smaller quantities than the rest of the line. In Europe Yak Face was provided without a weapon, but in Canada he was complete with a staff – as in your example. There are two variations of card back – the Palitoy/ General Mills European Tri- logo and the Kenner Canadian French/ English Power Of The Force ( with coin).
