The Champion Willie was issued in 1996 and plays "The Name of the Game." This particular figurine features head movement while playing it's song and is sized 26.5 x 16 x 13.5 cm.
Born a free spirited man, never in a hurry,
Willie has learned to blow with the wind and
has made enjoying life his full time job!
Although he's broke much of the time,
he's never let it break his spirit.
His pockets may be empty,
but his heart is always full!
Preferring to measure his life
in miles rather than years,
the more he journeys the wiser he becomes.
There's always a song in his heart
and he's always ready to whistle it for you.
Remember, there's a little bit of Willie in all of us;
you need only listen to the music in your heart.

A Spirit of Kinship
Since its inception in 1985, the heart and soul of Melody In Motion has been entertainment. Twelve years ago, we created Willie - a hobo, or free spirit - as the star of Melody In Motion.
Designed by master sculptor Seiji Nakane, Willie provides us with unlimited creative opportunities. As a hobo, Willie can go anywhere; be anything. But whether it's Willie or any of the other recently introduced characterizations, each figurine presents a tableau that tells a story - a story that sparks the imagination and evokes a sense of fun.
Melody In Motion figurines are truly unique: you seldom see figurines moving and playing real, studio-quality music at the same time.
Since all of the figurines are the result of complex design and painstaking craftsmanship, the figurines can only be produced in limited quantities.
Each figurine is carefully hand-assembled, adjusted and fitted with a technological wonder of gears, cams, motor, amplifier and speaker that brings it to life! It is this unique combination of micro-engineering and technology that creates an investment opportunity for the serious collector. And it's an opportunity that continues to grow.
