ToyFare exclusive Pin Pal Mr. Burns (also known as Pin Pal Burns) is a variant figure of Mr. Burns in a bowling uniform.

The origin of the variant "outfit" is the season 7 episode "Team Homer," in which Burns replaces star player Otto on the Pin Pals bowling team and threatens to cost the team the championship with his poor athletic ability.
