Just looking at the Jedi Wave carded pics...for everyone belly aching about potential pegwarming must not have been around for the Winter of 98-99...



Bets on a repeat?


You can actually still find him on the pegs at Rite-Aid around here. $12.99.

Along with the 8D8 & Ugnaught 2pk in my home state of NJ(Philly area). I was last month and they had those 2 figures at Rite-Aid. They survived the height of SW collecting in 2005-2007, no one wanted them. I wonder how many more years they will collect dust next to the colorful water guns & balloons..

So Willrow and Rancor Keeper are coming to a warm peg near you! Willrow has a shot but Rancor Keeper? Man, Legacy is in for a world of hurt with this fat guy figure. They should have waited and included him with the Rancor or a Battle Pack.

So step up people when you see him, he is the key to the next true Fan figure! Buy at least 3 of him.



I plan on doing just that. Hasbro gave us what we wanted and we owe it to them to support them. If I see one on the pegs, I am going to buy it and give it to a kid who might not otherwise be able to afford it. It's the least I can do to keep the hobby I've had for 30 years going.

Just don't tell that kid that you saw a Vader/Anakin or Clone Trooper on the pegs at the same time. He'd probably be angered by your character choice. I'm hoping that Wilrow (and Rancor Keeper) sell well so Hasbro will continue to release fan favorite background characters. I'll do my part and buy Wilrow, but mostly as a gag figure. I think I'm most excited to read the card bio for this guy. That should be interesting.

Forget new figure petitions - I say go for an ICMG Lego figure now.

Neverwork, they don't make "portly" LEGOs.

The new Toy Story Legos have some special body parts (long legs, Buzz Lightyear body, sculpted heands) so maybe the "portly" figure isn't too out of the question. TLG could even use it for other fine characters such as Porkins and Dexter Jetster. I say go for it!

That's funny. Not enough shirtless action figures, though, IMO.

I love his serious looking card image.  :)

Gold ink on the bubble, or black ink on the card?  ??? Hmmm....

I think Hasbro should take the carded image with the watermark and burn the JD URL into their actual packaging.

Most of my customs that get made get retired to my kids.  Willrow's brother Willrow will still be on my shelf
