Yoda is probably one of the most well known characters in the Star Wars films. He was one of the most powerful Jedi Masters and served as Grand Master of the Jedi Order. Throughout his long, 900 year life, he trained many apprentices which included Dooku, Mace Windu, Kit Fisto and of course, Luke Skywalker. He served on the Jedi High Council along with other Jedi that he trained but even with all his powers and insight into the force he was unable to detect that Supreme Chancellor Palpatine was in fact Sith Lord Darth Sidious, the person responsible for the Clone Wars.
After the Clone Wars and the rise of the Emporer and Darth Vader, he exiled himself on the swamp planet of Dagobah which is where Luke Skywalker found him to be trained as a Jedi.
This LEGO minifigure was once a very rare minifig and would go for upwards of £20 on ebay. Now though, Yoda is found in more LEGO sets and is not as hard to get hold of as before. For a LEGO Star Wars collector though, he is still a must have minifigure.
