First ever post. Here goes! I love this figure I think he's really retro looking. It's not a figure I ever owned as a child and I think that makes me want it more. I am building a loose run of the first 77 I can't wait to add him. I am fortunate enough to have most of my childhood collection for a head start! Thanks for the excellent pictures.

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.
Lovely

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!
Wow that is a fucking cool moc :shock: and the figure also look fantastic, thanks for sharing them :D

I agree it could be better. When I was a kid and saw the figure in the toy store then I thought it must be a mistake, wrong figure on a star wars card. I thought it looked like a diver when I was a kid and I never bought it or got it as a gift when I was a kid. The only figure when I was a kid that I thought this is not star wars it must be a mistake :lol:

Lovely army of variants that you have and thanks for all the great info about them. Maybe I am wrong and I maybe have to check my pbp book again. But the one you call pbp, is that not the one called meccano ? I have always heard that pistachio green head is meccano and dark green is PBP :?
