"A vintage tribute to Willrow Hood."


Star Wars Figures in Action!!: Overview On Page 1 - Page 5 IMG_5377_Processed


In case you don’t know Willrow Hood. He has just a spit second screen time in ESB while running through the corridors of Bespin City holding a device resembling an ice cream machine. His fate was to be become one of the many anonymous background characters if there wasn’t a fan-fiction backstory created around him. The story turned the “Ice Cream Maker Guy” into a real hero. The ice cream machine was actually Bespin’s main computer memory core containing relevant intelligence about the Rebels, and thanks to Willrow Hood the Empire could not get to this sensitive information. Very Happy

The story was so popular among fans that Hasbro even released a Wilrow Hood action figure in 2009.

You can read more about the Ice Cream maker Guy here: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Willrow_Hood

It appears that even Kenner released a Willrow Hood figure back in the 80s. At least i managed to pick up a nice MOC with a crystalclear blister.
I got it cheap, as it was a reseal. Very Happy

That's really cool Marco. Those are very rare and hard to find items. So rare in fact they don't even show up on any database for MOC and cardbacks anywhere on the web. Wink

YAAAAAA wilrod. cheers

Mine is not a "real" diorama, there are no clay or cardboard hand-made thing in it, but the figures are in action at least.
AND: they are New. But with those 4 Vintage Cantina aliens plus Obi, Luke and Han it would not be very exciting...


So:

Star Wars Figures in Action!!: Overview On Page 1 - Page 5 Mos_e_11


Star Wars Figures in Action!!: Overview On Page 1 - Page 5 Mos_e_12


At least I made ONE custom figure for this "diorama". Can you find it? And there are Vintage figures at least in the back...
