Turns out there's a third game featuring our favorite Series 11 Yeti:

Lego Minifigures Online (2014):

From description:
Once upon a time, the Yeti was barely more than a legend. Dwelling all alone up on his snowy mountaintop, he was rarely glimpsed by travelers, and those who did spot him were even less often believed. The Yeti himself was starting to think that he might just be a myth.
But that changed the day he looked himself up on the internet. Everyone seemed to be talking about him there, and they knew all about him – from his favorite foods to his foot size. He was famous! Now that he knows he’s a celebrity, the no-longer-shy Yeti is just waiting for crowds of new friends to arrive. He can’t wait to meet them!
