I donít know about any of you, but I really like Jawas. They are small and weird but they have a lot of character in their design. The brilliance of the Hasbro team is that they recognise that this is a small character and they have been pairing them up with a droid or a second Jawa of a different design. This works well. Speaking of previous Jawas, this one is based of one of the more recent moulds.
This particular Jawa has eyes that are painted a copper colour. This decision is actually one that I can give a thumbs up to. Itís better than the ďlightportĒ feature of plain yellow eyes. They really seem to glow! The figure has a ball-jointed head and ball-jointed shoulders and elbows as well as swivel wrist and waist joints. There are legs sculpted underneath the lower robes, but there are no joints present there. They would be useless anyhow. The bandolier has a holster for the rifle and is quite nicely detailed. The rifle is attached to a power pack satchel by a long cable. Itís plain nifty! There is also a canister of some sort that is meant to be placed on the back of the bandolier. It's a tiny little piece, so be careful not to lose it!
The other figure is the spidery WED Treadwell Droid. It comes in a couple pieces, so make sure you donít lose the little part, which is the antenna that goes on its butt. Itís gangly with lots of arms and is gonna look great at the Lars Homestead droid sale or Mos Eisley or wherever you feel like putting it. Thankfully, you donít have to attach all those arms like on the recent ROTS FX-6 figure. All of the arms are articulated at multiple points. Perfect for any job you might require it to do!
Includes body for Astromech droid. This edition was for R5-A2.
I'd rate this a 10 out of 10.
