    Point of Interest: 
      Though pictured on the back of the Star Wars 20 and 21 back cards with a Han Solo blaster, the figure was packed with a Stormtrooper Blaster.

    Though this figure was originally included in the Cantina Adventure Set, it made its first appearance on the Star Wars 20 back card.

  • Comments: Here is an uplifting tale about a man living in a world that feared and hated him. When little Timmy “Walrus Man” Malone was in elementary school he was harassed constantly. If the taunts about his flippers, ghastly complexion, and silly super-hero-esque costumes weren’t enough, he had to deal with a mouth that resembled a monkey’s behind. Needless to say, he quickly dropped out of school (not that he would have ever been prom king) and started hanging out with no-goodnicks. Thankfully, in a skirmish that lost him an arm, he saw the light and is working hard to make up for a lifetime of alienation. Way to go Timmy!

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Walrus Man figure's only major variation is the color of his 'teeth'. The figure was commonly available with either white or pink 'teeth'.

    Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
