Another production error just like 4-Lom, Zuckuss and Warok Tri-logo :lol: Cardback is Barada but figure is Kithaba :shock: :lol:
So I choose to share the pictures of Kithaba for this thread :lol:

I don't think you mean Warok, Lars. Surely you mean Paploo and Romba? Romba had Paploo's picture on his Tri-logo cardback, and Paploo had Romba's picture on both his Tri-logo and POTF cardbacks ;-)

And so it's now time for Barada, is it? OK then, Lars!

I know he's a last 15 / 17 figure, but I've always been a little disappointed by the sculpt Kenner gave Barada. With his bow legs, he looks like he's spent all day riding a bantha, and his arm pose makes him look like he should be carrying a barrel sideways. And the less said about the piss-poor green blob that passes for his head, the better! :lol:

Criticism of 34 year-old sculpts aside however, I do still like Barada. I like the fact that he's got a bit of colour to him, and along with Amanaman, EV-9D9, the A-Wing Pilot and the Imperial Suppository, sorry Dignitary, the last 17 really leap out at you from the cabinet / shelf / desktop with their bright colours, and catch your eye like nothing else in the vintage line.

Alright waffle over, here's mine; a POTF MOC and a loose:

What a great idea, you wouldn’t have a lot of competition and it wouldn’t take long to get a “full” run. :wink:

Nice collection, Lars. Are the two loose figures different COOs?

Thanks for sharing :-)
