    Still no luck with trying to get the website or petition posted on the main theforce.net page. I've tried submitting to the general news, collecting, writing directly to Xizor, and the humor section, Nada, any other tips???

    Closing in on 750 signatures meaning we are almost 9,250 signatures short of the goal ;)

    The demand is there!

    Also expect big news next week from the ICMG Camp

    Well the big news was that the ICMG petition was hosted by the San Diego Star Wars Society at Comic Con. It was a smashing success :)

    The online portion is closing in on 900 signatures, thanks for your support and spread the word!

    Bringing this thread up. Please sign the online petition if you haven't already. I think it would be really cool to get an action figure of the ICMG. I think there are about 1,000 signatures so far. All we need are 9,000 more to get Hasbro's attention. That shouldn't be too difficult if you get everyone you know to sign the online petition.

    A word of warning. Nobody wants ICM guy more than me, but with Hasbro's current trend there are two drawbacks:

    1.The ice cream maker would come with blue lightning bolt attachments.

    2. Hasbro will repackage and rerelease him multiple times.
    Think of it:
    regular guy with ICM
    Floppy hat guy with ICM
    Shirtless guy with ICM
    Guy with ICM packaged with Ice cream truck
    Removeable head guy with ICM
    Guy with ICM and council chair
    Guy with ICM and council chair repaint
    Holographic guy with ICM
    Light-up ICM guy with ICM
    Guy with ICM Unleashed
    Guy with ICM and Massif
    Underpant guy with ICM
    Guy with ICM and holographic Leia
    Guy with ICM feeding Clone action
    Guy with ICM and running action
    Guy with ICM looking slightly different
    Guy with ICM and handlebar moustache
    Guy with ICM and hungry Porkins
    Guy with ICM and another ICM
    Super Battle Guy with ICM
    Guy with ICM in stormtrooper disguise
    Strolling Guy with ICM (totally un-movie realistic, but has that ever stopped Hasbro?)

    I just don't know that I can encourage Hasbro to make this abomination of what is an awesome character.

    I have half a sheet of written signatures for you, but I'll wait till I get a couple more pages signed before I mail them to you. I still have your address. I take it to every meeting we have in case someone new comes and I ask them to sign it.

    I think that I signed a while ago but to be sure just signed it again. It is so funny,
    I had about 10 SW buddies over a few weeks
    ago and we were watch Empire on a 10x8 ft screen and when the ice cream man showed up
    for his 2 seconds of fame everyone let out a loud yell. My wife did not know what the heck was going on :)

    i refuse to sign for a worthless figure when not even all the figures from A New Hope have been made yet. Maybe when they accomplish that, then we can see mr. ice cream guy. But since we'll never see the tonika sisters - no ice cream guy.

    To give you an idea how cool an Ice Cream Maker Guy action figure would be, let me present my own Custom Figure:

    I boiled and popped a Skiff Guard Lando, shaved his hair back a little and painted it, and used the Imperial Officer for the jumpsuit and painted it the beautiful puke orange :) I need to work on doing hands as I usually will just paint them black or make sure they have gloves so I don't have to match colors. I also need a Dremel :(

    The maker I made out of Sculpey and I also need to make a new one but I am happy with him for now until Hasbro makes one too...

    PS Sign the Petition!!!
