Clone Wars Ep 705 & 707 Makes Kenner Figures Canon (Again)
Friday brings us a new episode of Clone Wars, continuing the story of Jedi Apprentice, Ahsoka Tano who has since left the Jedi Order to rediscover herself. It’s a neat character building and soul-searching episode, but what we found interesting were some of the Coruscant citizens in the background resembling the vintage Kenner Star Wars Action Figures.
Greedo, Walrus Man (Ponda Baba), and Hammerhead (Momaw Nadon), now with all new names I imagine, all make an appearance in their classic outfits. Sure, Walrus Man put on a few pounds, but you can’t deny the fashion! Now collectors everywhere will want modern versions of these classic characters. Cheers to the folks at Lucasfilm Animation that snuck them in!

Now, this isn’t the first time Walrus Man’s fashion-sense appeared in Clone Wars. A surly Aqualish has appeared in Season 5 on the planet Abafar.
In Episode 707, the Ithorian appears again imprisoned by the Pykes, along with a blue outfitted Snivvian.
