Jawa (Kenner - Vintage - Star Wars) - JediTempleArchives.com

Name: Jawa

Collection: Star Wars

Status: Jawa is an all-new figure.

Source: A New Hope

Availability: 1978

License: Kenner

Retail: $1.99 USD

Accessory Details: bowcaster

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.
