I know the clowns at a certain site think this is a stupid waste of time, but I'm really geeked up about it.  The thing that I get the most geared up to buy are background characters who haven't been made before, and this fits the bill.

Thanks Scott.

I keep checking back to make sure I am not seeing things.  I wish Colman was around because he really kept the flame alive with Hasbro at a lot of the conventions...next up is carded pics and I really hope that October date is accurate because my family is getting Willrows for Christmas.

Is the actor still alive?  If so has anyone ever tried to contact him to see if he knows about this?

No, but the ice cream maker is living a sweet life in northern California.

From what I have heard through the grapevine, one of the "officially licensed autograph company" types has tried to get info on this guy from LFL to track him down as part of their autographing stable.  This guy has a pile of money waiting for him and he probably doesn't even know it...  :D

I'm not sure if anyone knows who the actor even is.  I've looked through lots of lists and I haven't really found aything.  I know the Bespin extras shots were done with the Kurtz kids as well.  I'm not sure where they occured though...which would nail a British or American extra.  I know my site is part satire about Fozec but there is some resemblence between Willrow and Fozec

I said this in the wave's thread, but I'll say it here.

I wish we saw some kind of "nod" to Scott from elsewhere...  I've seen things like, "the figure fans thought would never get done", but no mention of the guy that ultimately got it accomplished through persistance.  It's just my opinion but I really think Scott deserves a nod for getting a figure accomplished that he wanted to see made.

That's a much more huge thing in this hobby than some folks are crediting it for.  It's not been a common thing, especially with obscurity.
