And truth be told...shortpacking Willrow Hood might give him a little more buzz amongst collectors.  It's a collector targetted figure to begin with.  So why not try to stir the pot with collectors a bit by intentionally shortpacking him?

It's too bad about Yarna- she's beautifully sculpted, and I bought 2 myself, for different dioramas.

As much as I am against short-packing, I would have to agree with that suggestion.

Yup, I completely agree on the short pack.  Willrow should be hard to find or quite frankly could be a SWS.com exclusive as far as I'm concerned.  Obviously they are unlikely to make it that way, but even a Con exclusive would work for that figure.  I love the idea, I'm excited about the figure, but honestly I do not expect it to sell well.  It's got Mustard trooper/Yarna written all over it.  If they distributed it like the ketchup trooper, maybe. 

I want my US carded version and my trilogo version and I want them both signed by Scott.  I'd really, really like to see some sort of mention of Scott on the cardback too because there is no way this figure would be out without him.  It doesn't have to be direct, but some clever part of the backstory would be fine.  It would be almost tragic if they don't.

As long as it's from Scott's background, not the cheesy SW.com "I'm like every obscure background character yet I have close ties to (Empire/Rebellion) and walked (insert a main character)'s dog and helped destroy the Death Star."

Also, include the Saga Plo Koon ice effect as well.

Word from GH about the latest Insider is that Willrow Hood gets a nod in the Hasbro article.

Anyone know what Scott is getting in the way of royalties on this release?  I may buy extra if he gets a cut of the profits.   ;)

Sounds like very limited articulation, or am I reading that wrong?

Your reading it wrong Rob, he is SA all the way as far as I can see from the notes.  And I love the Top Secret Rebel Holder (No its not its his Ice Cream Maker).

Rephrase, lack of ball-joints other than the neck.

I'm pretty sure those details mean ball joints

I believe "insert molded" means "ball-jointed" versus the inferior angle cut joints.

The same wording was on the Slave Leia drawings
