Good old Bum Face...
Here’s a loose one and a 21 back MOC, I’ve always thought that the card art on this one is really poor, and what were Kenner thinking with the figures colour, but hey...you’ve got to love any first 21 figure!

Fabulous stuff! Two lovely examples.

Thanks for sharing :-)

Bum Face indeed! What child could think it looked like anything else?! And it does beg the question what on earth the creature designers for Star Wars were thinking back in the 70's? You can't tell me they didn't know exactly what it looked like! :lol:

Anyway, monstrous bum chin, ludicrous colour scheme and crappy card art aside (why couldn't Kenner use an actual photo of the character instead of that piss-poor 'original artwork' that they decided to festoon the card with?), the figure still has its charm! Many's the happy time I had playing with old Bum Face and his Cantina cohorts in my Palitoy Cantina as a boy, re-enacting Obi-Wan lopping his arm off (even though it really should be Dr Evazan's arm on the floor, not Ponda Baba's, since he's clearly the one who draws his blaster [see 1:47-1:50 here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7rfcMNc8xk, not to mention the fact that Ponda Baba has flipper hands in any case for at least some of the scene [see 0:30] before magically transforming into fingered hands, and leaving completely aside the fact that both he and Dr Evazan seem to teleport out of the Cantina never to be seen again, the instant after Obi-Wan flashes his saber, but I digress...).

Where were we...? Oh yes, Walrus Man! :-D OK, I've got 5 of them, with differing shades of green on their heads and hands, and different shades of pink and white on their face-asses. I think my favourite is my PBP, if only because its pale green head and hands stand out so much.

And lastly, I have a Palitoy 20-back reseal.

I don’t know why but I suspected an army of these from you... 8)
Lovely examples and I too like the PBP one for the way the crazy colours pop.
Also a great reseal that does look like a re seal!

Is 5 an army? Perhaps in Switzerland or Monaco :lol:

Yes, poor old Walrus Man is my weakest reseal. It was one of my earliest efforts and my techniques have improved a lot since. I'm tempted to try slicing him open and giving it another go, but haven't summoned up the nerve yet!

Haven't contributed to these great threads for a while but here are my two reseals that have the different variant bubbles. The top picture is a bubble fail and it doesn't look like the figure has ever been removed. :D

Hi i'm Russ

Remember above the clouds the sun always shines

C-3PO (Return of the Jedi): I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.
