Notes: The Jawa was initially offered with a vinyl cape on the SW12-A card back. This is one of the most sought after variations from the original 12 figures. There are also an abundance of reproductions so finding a genuine "Vinyl Cape" Jawa can be tricky. The vinyl cape was quickly replaced by the more common cloth cape in subsequent releases.
