As you probably saw, Hasbro began their presentation by announcing the "final" wave of The Saga Collection:

#53 Willrow Hood (AKA "Ice Cream Maker Guy")
#54 Yarna d'al Gargan
#55 X-tra Crispy Beru & Lars
#56 Dead Jawa 2-pack
#57 Funeral Pyre Qui-Gon Jinn
#58 Funeral Pyre Darth Vader

The next slide revealed that fans should "look for this wave on 4/1/2007" April Fools!


Okay, now we love a good joke every now and then, but Willrow Hood and Yarna d'al Gargan are characters that a LOT of fans (including me) really DO want to be made. And if this is a big joke, does this mean that our dreams are for nothing??

We went straight to Hasbro with this complaint and were told that Hasbro really IS listening. They know that fans do want these particular characters made, and they would certainly consider them if they can find a way to fit them in.

So while there are NO plans currently for either character, at least they have not ruled them out completely.
