No doubt about it — the little Jedi Master has still got it! A recent auction for the ultra-rare 1990 Empire 10th anniversary bronze Yoda fetched just north of $5,000 — not bad for an original investment of $500 in 1990. Just one of 50 produced, it’s not hard to see why this little 9-inch sculpture is so coveted by collectors.
More than a mere hunk of heavy metal, this was the inaugural sculpture of famed Star Wars artist Lawrence Noble, who has gone on to create several more Star Wars bronzes in the years since, including one life-size Yoda that welcomes guests to LFL’s Presidio campus.
