Hit close to a dozen stores over four days, not a sign of Willrow.   :-\  Saw chunks of the wave including snowspeeder Luke and the scanning tech, but no Willrow.  Stoopid peg warmer.

Get a Scanner Tech?  :)  I'm up to a nice group of them, but other than TRU in Manhatten, I've never seen lots of that figure anywhere.  I DID pass on the first one ever at Target near me though because the price wasn't as spiffy as WM where I've been nabbing them one here and one there since the ESB2.0 wave has been surfacing.

Of ESB2.0 the figures I don't see often (or at all) are Wilrow Hood, the Green Astromech, Concept Snowtrooper, and to a lesser degree Snowspeeder Luke.  The rest of that wave I see hanging around usually for a time.

Nope.  I'm just not motivated on this stuff of late.  I know the new tech is a better sculpt, but I still have 4-5 of the old one and don't care enough to get the new one.  The Tech is up on hts.com, as are a few other things from that wave, but nothing I want ::)  I'd probably buy the whole wave, if I could get it in one fell swoop, but that seems destined to not happen.  Looking at HTS.com I remembered I still need a Rum Sleg. ::)

Meh, check that.  Found an ebay seller with Willrow listed at $5.95 and the Droid at $7.95 so I grabbed both.  Enough bitching about it, just bought it and that's that.  I've got my loose and carded versions of Willrow now, so if I can manage to get Scott to sign the carded one I'm good to go.

I've been finding slow trickles of the ESB Wave, including good ol' Wilrow! I am decently pleased that he is not pegwarming the shelves, in fact, there seems to be a steady, paced flow of him available! Yay, no Yarna!

I own many of these since my ebay order showed up.  Pearson, get over to chuckles' house and sign one of my copies.  You have until September 18th.

I feel as though I've done my part to support good ole Willrow - I have three of him open and one MOC.

I am pleased to see that around here at least he has not developed into another Yarna.

In fact I would almost say that Edian peg warms more than him, but that might have something to do with revision cases, I'm not sure.

I strongly considered picking up a second to make another Bespin guard, but haven't been able to pull the trigger.

I have a serious disease.  I'm totally not into collecting these days and have bought very, very little in the last month and have about 20 figures from the last year sitting sealed that I'm pretty sure I don't want to open.  Yet I still bought a Willrow today (US cardback still) bringing my total to four.  I didn't need it but wanted it still.  Crazy.

I finally found Willrow on the local pegs and he is now proudly displayed hanging on my wall.  8)

GOT HIM! Scored Wilrow, but having small trouble getting him to hold his ice cream maker.

It's a delicate balancing act, but it is possible.

But is yours autographed?  ;)
