EU? Talking trees? Hmm I'd say it's a GVFFFA, then.

Both I suppose. It's the EU, which I would include in the GFFA but some would file under Imaginationland.

Neither.  Exhausted Universe stuff goes into the "Unimaginationland" file.

Finally.... you can consider this bad boy 100% officially confirmed.  :)

From today's Q&A answers...

"We can confirm that Willrow will be a basic-carded figure in 2009 in an EpV-themed wave (no updates on who his wave-mates are.  You'll have to wait!). As of yet, no design work has been started on Willrow, but we'll see if there's an opportunity to share with everyone the progress of this fan-favorite figure as work starts to begin."

(ps. I'm still first in line to get mine autographed by Scotty P  :-*).

That is great news, and its nice to have "official" confirmation.  Hopefully it will be a great ESB wave, filled with Willrow, "ultimate" Bespin Han, and a SA Hoth Rebel Soldier :).

It would be nice to have a little behind-the-scenes "in progress" updates be exclusive to JD here, since our own Scott is the brains behind this whole movement :).

Congrats, Scott.

Sweet news.  I'm not buying the Hasbro stuff anymore, but I will buy Willrow.  I signed Scott's petition years ago and it's great to see it finally come full circle.  Congrats, Scotty.

Woot!

Congrats to Scott.  For showing that it can be done, for not backing down and for proving a point.  I'm on that petition as well from a long time ago. 

I'm having my Willrow AFA'd. :-X

I think my second greatest joy is that this will annoy the hell out of the Willrow haters.  Sorry boys, it's not a Darth _________ or parfait trooper.  Suck it up. 8)

Oh yeah, I'll be scalping shipping out Canadian carded Willrow Hood figures if anyone wants one. ;)

Awesome news! Although Willrow isn't my most wanted figure of all time, I think it's amazing we're getting him, and I'll surely buy him, even if I'm not actively collecting at that time.

Cool news.

Wow Yarna this year, ICMG next year, R5-D4 back in '06 (or did we forget that was a very sought after resculpt).

Hasbro is finally making good on giving us the figures we've so long asked for.

I just hope he's not a Naboo soldier  repaint with a cheap accessory. Not after all this time. Fozec, er, ICMG needs to be a new sculpt.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

We should start a list for autograph requests for Scott if the ICMG gets made.
