If I wasn't so lazy, I'd do a search for the old thread on this. Are they seriously trying to revive this thing? Why put the effort into a character like this and not a character who is actually on people's want list?

There's no harm in it.

The ice guy can be seen running though the halls of Bespin. Lucas gave the guy a electric ice maker to hold. It's the strangest thing. edit Here's the old thread. http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=10508&highlight=ice+cream+petition

Er, okay, or maybe not. Best of luck guys, but I reckon this guy has peg-warmer written all over him.

I won't sign the petition unless the petition is changed itself to include wording lobbying Hasbro to include a mini-snowcone maker device as an accessory to this figure (similar to the Snoopy Snowcone maker for those who had one during the 1980's).

Sure, Hasbro will make this one. It'll be a Target exclusive and cost $15.

And you know what yer gonna get don't ya? A repainted ROTS Bail Organa with that little fishtank that came with Taun We.

It's called a joke. No one really expects the figure to get made.

While he doesn't even break my top 100 figures to make I would buy him if he were made. But then no one ever said I was in my right mind. :crazed:

I have already signed this petition years ago. I would buy an ICMG! I would rather have a ICMG than: a repack Vader, a repack Emperor, a repack Luke, a repack Obi Wan, a repack Anakin, a repack Han, a repack R2, a repack C3PO, a repack Leia, a repainted figure in which the paint did not improve that figure that much, Han Solo in At-St disguise, a wide stance telescoping lightsaber Anakin, a wide stance gimmicky Padme, a repack Padme, a horrible face-sculpted Mace Windu, or a repacked Battle Droid. In fact, a repacked anything that isn't a clone or stormtrooper/snowtrooper would not be as good.

I could see this being a pegwarmer too. Us collectors would buy, but kids wont.

Kid: Wow!? Who's this lame a55 figure that's carrying a propane tank? Do you really hate me this much mommy?

I can see it now:

"Willrow Hood: Bespin Ice Cream Vendor"

He'll sell more than the Neimoidian Warrior, that's for sure.

I'd always thought that this would make a really cool Con exclusive figure...

Duh! That's been confirmed for quite some time now. He's replacing the Endor chick as the Rebel sniper. And instead of thermal detantors he hurls tasty ice cream treats, kinda like the Green Goblin and his pumpkin bombs. Except for the pumpkins.

I mean, come on guys. There is a tiny chance that this guy will ever be made. Why not just sign that petition? What if we get up to 5,000 signatures? I would almost bet that Hasbro would make the figure then. Well maybe not, but we'd still have 5000 signatures for him! :D

I don't think 5k would do it, it wouldn't take long for a couple of people to sign 5,000 bogus names. 20k I think would get Hasbro's attention.

Thanks to everyone for keeping the dream alive...a few fun facts:

#1 Porkins and Wuher were made after successful petition runs
#2 I started this mainly as a joke and I don't expect to ever be made, but the fact that people still want him, that to me says I started someting;)
#3 To say that people don't want him or there are more wanted characters is not true, I've seen him on many people's wishlists (as per a poll taken last year at JediDefender)

http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=8983.0

I'd take a repaint, I'd take a new sculpt. I made my own but its still not the real thing:

I don't think some of your hearts are in this. Of course we collectors want this guy! Along with every main character, supporting character, and every extra with a rediculous prop in the movie.
