To the best of my knowledge, no.  The Ponda Baba figure was scrapped well before production and prototyping if I'm not mistaken.  I've seen customs though that are quite good, but that's it.

I remember those customs a while back.  There are actually quite a few different ones out there.  There was a "how to guide" somewhere and there was not much to them.

Regarding the Ponda Baba, I think that protos do exist.

The Freeze frame was never made even in proto form from what I've read BUT the cardback WAS made.  Here's a pic of a mocked up vader with removable helmet on a ponda baba FF card.  The freeze frame would have had the picture that is on the cardback in it.  This is the ONLY ponda baba cardback i've ever seen and I doubt the owner would ever give it up.

I'll see if I can dig it up.  I have all 58 (?) of them but I cannot remember from the top of my head.  I think 56 came with figures and 2 with Luke's binoculars.

Check out our checklists, it should list all of them...

2 were exclusive to the Binoculars you had to mail away for (there was a nice  promo actually).  Hoth Han and Luke were both exclusive to that...  The rest were on cards, though there was the "Fan Club 4" too that were exclusive...  at least for a while.

Thanks! Just what I was looking for.  ;D

Well I started digging through my old figures and have found most of them. To my surprise I found a Weequay. I don't ever remember buying him but there he was. So far, the ones i don't have are the repacks although for some reason i can't find some that i should have. I am off to go through another closet and hope to find a few more. 

Second Edit:

Ok so i went through another closet full of star wars. After digging through all the old Hasbro 12 inch dolls i found 1 box of figures. As suspected the remaining freeze frame figures were there. (I knew i had a Boba Fett) So after everything is said and done I am missing 2 Freeze frames for a complete set. I need and Sandtrooper and a Tie FIghter Pilot. Not too bad. Off to ebay to try and finish the set  ;D

You shouldnt have a problem with the tie fighter pilot but the sandtrooper will most likely cost ya.

Congrats on your weequay find.  Is it on a us or canadian trilogo card? or loose?
