OTAKUSWAG: Our Star Wars Day Spectacular with Kotobukiya

Take home everyone’s favorite little green guru.

Deck the halls with bows of Wookiee! Wait, what? It’s Star Wars Day, dear readers, a magical time of the year when you can glance wryly at the calendar and say “May the Fourth be with you” to any and all passers by. Celebrate by singing carols exclusively made up of Wilhelm screams; watch “Saber 2: Return of the Body Wash,” a sequel to Clare Grant and Rileah Vanderbilt’s epic “Saber“; and win an ARTFX Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Yoda statue from Kotobukiya! Yep, you read that last bit right – we’re giving away everyone’s favorite Jedi to one lucky reader.

If the mere mention of figure-makers extraordinaire Kotobukiya doesn’t send your midi-chlorian count into overdrive, then just take a look at their wonderfully sculpted ARTFX Yoda statue. From the folds on his ancient, wrinkly face to the delightfully detailed 7-inch base that’s ripped straight from the misty moors of Dagobah, Yoda has never looked better (except maybe in that Cup Noodle commercial). The best part? This saber sensei isn’t even available to the general public yet, so you’ll take home a piece of the Star Wars universe that would make any Jedi jaundiced with jealousy.

Between the announcement of Course of the Force stops, “Saber 2” (including our behind-the-scenes sneak peek) and all the epic Star Wars cosplay out there, you’d have to be a real piece of Sith not to get excited for today. We already know how the Japanese get down with the galaxy far, far away, but how will you be celebrating Star Wars Day? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus! Don’t forget to enter our Kotobukiya Yoda statue giveaway because this little guy is definitely the swag you’re looking for.
