Willrow Hood Celebrates Chocolate Ice Cream Day

In celebration of National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, we wanted to post a picture of an action figure which should be included in anyone's toy collection and the man he's based upon. According to Wookieepedia, "Willrow Hood was a Human male miner who lived and worked on Cloud City, a floating station located above the gas giant Bespin." He is commonly referred to as the Ice Cream Maker Guy of Bespin because of the shape and look of the memory core he was in charge of and carried through the halls of Cloud City. I'd like to think that if he enjoyed ice cream, chocolate would be a favorite. Who doesn't love chocolate ice cream? You can read more about Willrow after the jump.

Willrow Hood in "The Empire Strikes Back":

"[Willrow Hood] worked for A'roFilter, a mining company sympathetic to the Alliance to Restore the Republic, as the head of the department responsible for dealing with the Rebel Alliance, supplying discounted Tibanna gas. Eventually, though, the Galactic Empire invaded and conquered the planet; in order to protect the Rebellion contacts Hood was responsible for, the miner took A'roFilter's main computer's memory core, as it contained the encrypted information on Rebel contacts. After finding the nearest disposal unit, Hood dumped the entire core, rather than risk it falling into the wrong hands; thus, Willrow Hood was able to save the Alliance's interests. Hood remained on Cloud City throughout the Imperial occupation, suffering imprisonment and torture but revealing nothing."
