I'd like to have an extra Willrow.  But that would require me to have a single Willrow in the first place.  Peg warmer indeed.

I've only seen Willrow twice and I bought both of them...and this wave has been out for how many months now?

Not sure if we're still sending you care packages or not, but I have an extra if you need Brent.  It's even from a store that OCB used to shop at.    :D

Yup, I still get care packages from Jim/chuckles on a somewhat regular basis.  I'd take loose, but if it's carded I want it signed by "The Maker" and I don't mean that Lucas clown, I mean the guy that got this through.  I'll send you a pm on it by day's end.  Thanks.  :)

Today, TODAY (!) for the 1st time ever I stumbled upon the remnants of Wave 12 Legacy. And I found Willrow! I'm actually impressed with the figure now that I've seen it in person.

Now to find the rest of this wave!   >:(

I picked up Willrow before Christmas and I have to say, I really love everything about this figure. There's something cool about signing up for something and seeing it come to fruition. I can't imagine how satisfied the guy who started this is.

In a way, it's great that it took as long as it did to happen, because, the sculpt and articulation in this era of collecting is so advanced. If he'd come in 2004 he would probably have had a pre-posed "running leg" and had trouble standing.

These kind of cool background characters are one of the things that keep me collecting.

After sitting in my neglected open pile for quite a while I finally got around to opening this guy. He's alright.

A couple days ago, I added an authentic "Fans' Choice" figure to my collection: An autographed Willrow Hood signed by Scott "OCB" Pearson himself!

So all of you with signed Anthony Daniels, Dave Prowse, Peter Mayhew and Jeremy Bulloch figures can suck it.  ;D

Wow.  Those must be nice to find in the wild when toy hunting in Minnesota...

I can't even find an extra carded ICMG to mail to the creator.  All I'm seeing are repacks, Bespin Guards and Zuckuss.

I got an autographed copy too. Maybe contact the creator himself, Jesse.

I finally got one of these from the Minnesota Mikey. 

So, is this thing warming the pegs nationwide yet?  I may be stateside next week and would love to grab several more.  Surely to goodness the bane of collectors must be readily available, right?

I wouldn't say he's warming the pegs at all - Hasbro seems to have done a good job managing the production numbers on him.  The only place I am seeing him is at TRU and Target - he's not hard to find, but he's certainly not a burden like Yarna was.

Funny - we had some friends over this weekend, and they have kids who like Star Wars a lot.  One of them saw my Willrow Hood, and said "Look - a fat guy!"  - it was priceless.

This is good news indeed.  I would like to find a couple more for sure so if he's easy to find that would be awesome. 

What's wrong with fat guys?

I saw two hanging on the pegs when I went home for Spring Break. Kind of kicking myself for not snagging them, since I'm sure there are still some JDers in need of him.

I got mine the very first time I saw him, at a local toy show in December. Since then I've only seen him once at retail.
