Buildable non-droid figures are something of a rarity in LEGO Star Wars, but you can get 75255 Yoda for 27% off at Zavvi before it retires.
In LEGO Star Wars, brick-built characters are nothing new, especially when it comes to droids. However, the organic characters from a galaxy far, far away more commonly receive minifigures or action-focused figures than LEGO statues. That makes 75255 Yoda a rare occurrence in the theme, even though he’s not the only member of his species to get such a model.
Zavvi is currently offering this interesting model for 27% off its normal price, bringing you all 1,771 elements for £79.99 instead of £104.99 – a saving of £25.
For that discounted price, you can expect to receive a 41cm tall figure of Yoda holding a giant green lightsaber, an informative UCS-style plaque and a minifigure of the Jedi to go alongside it. This isn’t just a static model, though it might be better suited to display rather than play, as it includes a turning head, moving ears and brows that you can furrow to change his expression.
Yoda is arguably one of the most iconic characters from the beloved franchise and there are few models as dedicated to the Jedi, or as unique, as this one. It’s also scheduled to retire at the end of 2022, meaning there’s not too much time left to get it at a decent discount.
Whether you’re looking for something to do to beat the heat over the summer, or just have a Yoda-shaped space in your LEGO Star Wars collection, 75255 Yoda is available now from Zavvi for £79.99. The usual opportunity to upgrade the £1.99 UK delivery fee to £3.99 for shipping to the US also applies, in case this deal tempts anyone overseas.
