The intricate metallic pin appears to be produced and colored via either a soft-enamel or a Cloisonné design process. The white fur trim on Yoda’s Santa hat and robe are further inlaid with a subtle multi-color glitter. (Hold it up to a bright light and watch it sparkle.)

The Yoda Santa image was designed by the late Ralph McQuarrie, a concept artist who George Lucas turned to in the very early years of Star Wars to help sell and realize his vision of Star Wars. Lucasfilm distributed the following holiday card in 1981, with McQuarrie’s Yoda Santa drawing on it, to the cast and crew of The Empire Strikes Back: Yoda Santa 1981 card-FrontYoda Santa 1981 card-BackThe pin and card retail for $9.95 (less 10% Disney Annual Passholder discount at certain Disney locations).
