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.

talk about love for a star wars character. that is one cool yoda collection. the only thing that top it would be getting original artwork or a copy of the original yoda puppet need you would

I have never before seen a Yoda collection. This is magnificent! And I loved seeing the 1980s hand puppet – one of my most beloved toys as a child.

I’ve always been reluctant to buy Star Wars toys b/c it’s just not a big property for me to collect (I like Empire way way more than the other movies) but that Yoda riding the beast toy is awesome. Can anybody tell me what that particular model is called so I can look into buying one for my art room?

It’s Gentle Giant’s Yoda on Kybuck maquette.

Nice collection! I love character-centric collections. You’ve got a heck of a lot of Yodas.

Great collection!

Thanks guys! There are more but thats all that fits in the cabinet.
