I'm glad they added 'Uncle Moe', but it's still a little irritating to see Mr. Plow there as a keychain and not a 3".

And the keychain series has a Nelson Muntz figure too, by the look of it.

Almost certain it's Joey Jo Jo. The head is fairly narrow and the sides show the edges of glasses so my money's on him.

Hugh Jass has a rounder head and probably wouldn't fit the mold. Also wouldn't work for Guy Incognito (Homer with a mustache basically).

Also, did a little leg work on the ratios and came up with a series list for those interested.

Image

Drunk Snake - 3/48
Carl Carlson - 2/24
Lenny Leonard - 2/24
Drunk Barney - 3/48
Duffman - 3/24
Uncle Moe - 2/24
Drunk Homer - 3/24
Moe Szyslak - 3/48
Handsome Moe - 2/24
Larry the Barfly - 2/24
Sam the Barfly - 2/24
Mystery Chase (likely Joey Jo Jo Shabadoo) - ?/??
Lovematic Grampa - ?/??

Remaining ratio is 3/48 so I'm guessing that the Lovematic Grampa is 2/48 or 1/24 and the mystery chase is 1/48. Or vice versa.

You don't think he's a little too obscure? I know Kidrobot have done characters from single episodes ... but single jokes??

You definitely have a point. The only issue is that Moe's Tavern is somewhat limiting in terms of how many characters are available. Some of the Wikis out there will show you the number of characters that have any significant ties to Moe's; it's not exactly vast and many of them are one offs. Here's one such list, not counting the regulars (Homer, Barney, Carl, Lenny, Sam and Larry):

- Aerosmith
- Stephen Hawking
- U2
- Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Jay Leno
- Wade Boggs
- Johnny Carson
- Joe Frazier
- Jamie Farr
- R.E.M.
- The owner of King Toots
- A man with glasses that are out of focus
- Hugh Jass (a man who coincidentally has the same name that Bart uses for a prank call)
- An unnamed person who has a cowlick and easily passes out
- A gay man who was under the impression that Moe's Tavern was a gay bar
- Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabadoo whose name Homer uses as an alias.
- A potential patron was Guy Incognito, a man who looked like Homer and talked in a voice similar to his.
- An unknown character who thinks Homer's name is Bill.
- Barney's dog Shaggy was seen joining the regulars.
- Benjamin, Doug and Gary

My personal choice would've been Beer Baron. It's only too fitting. Only problem is that the character doesn't seem to have a hat on. :(

Be Sharps would fit pretty well in a Moe's release...at least pad out the numbers for a 24 box case...

Hopefully the keychain set is a leadin to a great 3" series filling the gaps *ahem* Phil Hartman characters...

You're totally right about this. Which is what makes me think it might be a variant on a regular character, ya know?

No idea who, though?

I would've loved a Beer Baron too!

I'll show some love to Matt Gondek's "deconstructed homer". The Ron English Simpsons (mostly monster Bart) also dope!

For the mystery character, I'm pretty sure he's wearing a cap :)
