Well I always liked having Walrusman to play with when I was a kid. I HAD to have that figure. I would love having Kenobi beat-up poor Walrusman. I hated Walrusman when I was kid because he picked on Luke "FOR NO GOOD REASON!!!" Ha-ha! So, in my play time Kenobi would not only slice off Walrusman's arm but he would beat Walrusman to a pulp. You mess with Luke like that and you get a beating from Obi-Wan. That's just the way it was in my play world. I was sensitive about poor Luke
Anyway, I actually liked the POTF version when it first came out. I think because we finally got a somewhat accurate looking version. I know, I know. It's POTF buff but at least the colors were correct when compared to the original version. I'm really looking forward to getting two of the upcoming Ponda Baba. One to open and the other to keep on the vinty card.
I never knew about the flipper hands until last year when someone post pics of it. That's good they are including them I suppose. I will probably just keep with "regular" hands though. Someone showed a behind the scenes photo of his head being sliced off as well as his arm. That would have been interesting! Maybe Lucas will have an alternate scene in the Blu-Rays with that?
