This Ponda Baba action figure was released in
1997 in the Power Of The Force 2 Collection.
It was exclusively available at Walmart.
Hasbro gave the figure six joints and included
two accessories (vest, blaster).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- This version of Ponda Baba was part of the "Cantina Showdown" Cinema Scene 3-pack
- The other two figures in this set were Dr. Evazan and Obi-Wan Kenobi
- Ponda Baba's blaster fits well into the right hand
- The plastic vest is removable
- The figure doesn't stand well without a stand
- Overall, the dynamic sculpt of the figure captures the moment when Ponda Baba attacked Obi-Wan quite nicely
- Just like with the other two figures in this set, there is no date stamp on it
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel arms, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs
