I think the figure's face looks a lot better than the card art myself, and is a better representation of the character... and the figure really does look damn good.  It's odd they didn't paint his belt though.

After close inspection of the DVD he did not have a belt so the figure is accurate. This figure is going to be great for making a lot of out of shape Aliens.

Pegwarmer?

I don't think it's proof that something isn't a pegwarmer when it hasn't even hit the pegs yet.

If the DVD shows he doesn't have a belt, but there's one sculpted on the figure (just not painted), how is it accurate?

It looks to me, in the movie, that he does have a belt, its just one of those "old guy, same color as the leisure suit" type of belts.  So it is accurate to the movie.  IIRC on the first page of this thread there is a clip that shows it.

willrow is looking good. I don't think we should blame Hasbro or factory for not painting it. After viewing that footage again it's pretty subliminal.

Great figure. Ice cream for everyone!

Hmmm, maybe I need to buy one there.  Apparently Hasbro Canada has cancelled the Legacy line in Canada for the next while.  Yay.  ::)

Good figure - alas, he's out!  ;D

However, Hasbro SHOULD limit IMMG quantities ... I still have that itching feeling he'll be a pegwarmer. Maybe not a YARNA, but not an instant seller for some people, either...

So where's my picture of Scott holding his carded Willrow replete with the **** eating grin on Scott's mug?  I want to thank that maker.

I'll be surprised to see anything as a pegwarmer the way figs have been shipping lately.
