Currently there's one going for $17.39 loose with 3 1/2 days left to bid. MOC have sold for $30.

I remember a few rows of unsold Willrow's at toys r us.

So, I ask where were the bidders when he was everywhere? Maybe he was rare somewhere? Not around here.

Newcomers to the hobby? And willing to spend $30 on THE BEST CHARACTER EVER  ;D

Just the end result of the gradual end of Super Articulation that everything's gonna go up on the aftermarket.

He wasn't "rare" here but he sold...  Steadily.  Far better than Yarna, and Naboo Guard guys.  IIRC TRU had the most Wilrows I ever saw, but never saw them between sales and such.

I never saw rows of them though, ever.  Almost every wave of Legacy stuff was a steady seller, did ok...  Not much lingered endlessly for my neck of the woods.   It's like everything else.  If one area got too much, it doomed other waves.

Yeah, I don't think its so much that he was hard to find, but years later someone looking to back-collect an item would have much more trouble finding it.  The vintage POTF figures were $1.99 when I was a kid - they obviously cost a lot more now.  The 6" Maul and R2 Black series figures were piling up on the shelves a few years ago, but now they too sell at a premium.

I was watching ESB on TNT on Saturday and something caught my eye...THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING

Luke Skywalker, the savior of the galaxy (until Rey came along) was the original owner of Willrow Hood's Ice Cream Maker

https://twitter.com/JediDefender/status/779862559637639168




Putting together a timeline:

  • Luke takes Maker with him from Hoth
  • Luke is trained on its use by Yoda
  • Luke loads Maker and heads to Cloud City
  • Luke leaves Maker in his X-Wing and brings R2 into Cloud City
  • Luke starts dueling with Vader and gets his ass kicked
  • Willrow Hood (who must be Force Sensitive!!) senses the Maker in the X-Wing and "borrows" it
  • Lando evacuates the city
  • Willrow Runs
  • Willrow Heads to Jabba's Palace and takes the name Fozec
  • Luke's real agenda of infiltrating Jabba's Palace is to retake the Maker (screw Solo)
  • Willrow goes into hiding biding his time (Maybe until around Episode VIII)
  • Luke takes the Maker with him to AHCH-TO where he has been waiting for someone to take with them the secrets of the Maker
  • Rey shows up trying to give back his Saber, when really she's here to learn about the Maker

Willrow really was just a thief...huh, but now we know he was Force Sensitive and probably the son of Mace Windu (who isn't dead)

Perhaps in ANH, when C-3PO says, "Thank the Maker!" he didn't mean Anakin (though Threepio didn't know Anakin created him), he was referring to the Maker

Also gives credence to the falsified StarWars.com/EU backstory that Hood was a Rebel hacker and the Ice Cream Maker was actually a pod full of secret Rebel documents! Why else would Luke have it?
