Collection: The Clone Wars

These Tatooine scavengers hunt for lost or abandoned equipment – machinery, droids, even starfighters that appear unoccupied. Jawas look almost identical to outsiders, but among each other, they easily identify differences in lineage, health and other details.
From 1978 until 1985 (which is also affectionately known as the vintage era), we received one Jawa figure on a basic card. We were thrilled back then most likely because we were much less picky with the people who provided us our Star Wars toys back then. But all that changed in 1995 and ever since, we have received our Jawas in some sort of two-pack in the basic line. While each release may have not contained two Jawas, it did contain at minimum one Jawa and "something else" (like a droid for example). We believe (and hope) that this will be convention until the line ends. It is undoubtedly a smart move on Hasbro's part because it ensures happiness in collectors and is a great value for our dollars. This in turn will protect Hasbro’s bottom line because it will be a figure that will have steady sell through. Hasbro used the same protocol for the very first animated versions of Jawas and this two-pack couldn't thrill us more. You know that we particularly love The Clone Wars action figures that are based on characters from the films first. Well, this set doesn’t disappoint us in the least because these Jawas look exactly like what the animated versions of the ones we saw in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope should look like. As a result, these figures will no doubt pique interest in collectors who only care about movie based figures. The Jawas in The Clone Wars line are of course unique due to their style, but they look very similar to the other two-packs we have received to date too. Likewise, you will see more than a few similarities to the 1996 The Power Of The Force Jawas in this set.
This two-pack gives fans two differently sized Jawas. Their costumes are nearly identical between them and if it weren't for their size differences, you would likely have trouble telling them apart. The costumes are molded and colored simply and beautifully and work proactively to give the collector an immediate nostalgia to our first glimpse of them from Episode IV. Their presentation is outstanding and they just look too cool for words. We expect fans to revel in these figures and build a very large Jawa army. (We are certainly inclined to do this ourselves.) The Jawas will no doubt look fantastic in your Sandcrawler or wherever other vehicle or set-up you want to place them. Since Hasbro doesn’t make “animated” vehicles, your 2004 OTC Sandcrawler should work just fine for them. We are confident that an animated take on this would be ultra cool! Both figures have impressive articulation for their size so judge them not by their size. They both have eight points of articulation but in different spots. The large Jawa has a moveable head, moveable shoulders, elbows, wrists, and waist while the smaller Jawa has a moveable head, moveable shoulders, moveable wrists, waist, and two moveable feet. Each point is hidden and works well for both figures. And it is quite amazing how Hasbro possesses the ability to put ball-joints in the tiniest places. Both Jawas stand up straight without an awkward lean and can hold their shiny silver ion blasters very well. They are all around brilliant action figures. Of particular note, the ion blasters fit flawlessly into their functioning holsters and well as their hands!
