Obscure Star Wars Character FINALLY gets action figure!

February 23, 2009 @ 19:45:44
Willrow Hood was a background character seen for a brief few seconds in "The empire strikes back", Running for dear life from the grip of the Galactic Empire holding a..... a fucking Ice Cream Making machine.




This simple fact made him a cult favourite and for years people have been demanding that he be immortalized in plastic, some even going as far as sending letters and petitions to Hasbro, who have the rights to the Star Wars action figures. It was announced in 2007 that fans wishes would come true, but they never said when, which brings us to 2009.

Willrow Hood is FINALLY getting an action figure. Check out the concept art for the figure:

I love how his ice cream maker holds 'secret rebel plans' hahahaha.


I think he looks pretty good. what are your thoughts on this? is it dumb as fuck? is it funny as hell? for those of you who are star wars collectors, is this a definite cop? Do you not give a fuck at all?

lmao, that is indeed hilarious, cant believe they are making figures for such obscure characters, cool never the less smokeyface hopefully the kids of today recognise what a cool movie and toys star wars is
April 04, 2010 @ 23:25:19
^^Star Wars really is undeniably cool. Ever since I was like 3 I loved it. I never understood why kids in school said it was nerdy, especially in Middle School. I mean what kind of pathetic childhood did these kids have?!

hahah star wars toys arent the same anymore as they were like 13 years ago
February 19, 2011 @ 18:54:29
LMAO, how is Chewy black? And I'm pretty safe to say it was used as a prop as some random piece of tech. and not meant that he was looting ice cream makers during the Empire's attack.
February 20, 2011 @ 13:14:37

That's hilarious, I guess they've made action figures of everyone else already, might as well.
