I never new the ICMG was so well-endowed.  :o

Uh, you are aware the character is a negro, right?  He's packin' somethin' underneath that orange jumpsuit of his, and it ain't a gigantic ice cream scoop, lemme tell ya.

That's why his last name is Hood.  He needs to cover that big thing up. 



Yeah...sorry.

Anyone wondering what happened to Willrow after he fled Bespin? He became a singer at a intergalactic bar.
Watch this video to find out and look for the really tall singing Jawas.......

After I finish a very large Dagobah diorama I'm making now, I plan on making a Cloud City hallways display, largely due to the arrival of this great character.  I may have to make some custom citizens to run with him!

I was just listening to the the Forcecast Christmas episode (from last Friday I believe), and Derryl DePriest was one of the guests on the show and he specifically mentioned again that Willrow Hood is on the way in 2009 while he was discussing "collector focused" figures that drive the Legacy Collection line.  I know he's already been confirmed, but its nice to hear it once again.  I was hoping there would be a mention of our very own Scott when discussing the figure though ;).

That is pretty good stuff...  Scott, you gotta be giddy as a little school girl since he's coming for sure it seems. 

Now where's my f'n Fleet Trooper.   >:(

Am I mistaken, or didn't Hasbro already confirm a new RFT?  I can't remember where/if I read it, but I've had it in my head for a while now.  I posted a question to Hasbro  (on another site) asking if they have fixed the black paint on the helmet, as both the original and the repacks in the Tantive IV BP both had the black paint past the sculpted plastic line on the front of the helmet (but the black paint app on Captain Antilles was correct).  I'm fairly certain that whenever they redo this figure, they will do the joints properly this time.  ... anyway, the question was rejected when they couldn't confirm that Hasbro already confirmed the figure.  I knew if anyone was paying attention to this one, it would be Jesse.  So, was I smokin' something, or did Hasbro confirm this for next year?

You're not entirely mistaken. A new RFT hasn't been "confirmed," but it is a strong rumor that tends to turn out to be true. I think you got the chronology right.

I just hope that Willrow Hood doesn't warm the pegs as bad as Yarna has... if his accessory is nice and he's good custom fodder, at least I'll buy several more than I did of Yarna (bought two of her).

I am looking forward to Willrow.  However, I assume it will warm as much if not more than Yarna.  She actually did pretty good around my area.  She did not rot nearly as bad as Lobot and those Neimodians did.  I think we all knew what her status would be pegwarmer when she was released.  She was still one of my favorite figure releases of 2008.  But I have scaled way back on figures and did not buy that many figures this year.

As being part of the initial TLC push, I would think that the production run for Yarna and the entire first wave was higher than the later waves. Granted Willrow will warm to some degree but I think that he'd not to the extent that Yarna is.
