    Jawa & WED Treadwell Droid [BD 33]

    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.

    Nice review. I am pleased to see that this one scored so highly in you ranking. It looks to be beyond amazing. I've wanted this fig since 1978 or so, and I can't believe it will soon be mine...

    Does the droid have any working wheels or anything on the bottom?

    I think the Jawa is awesome, but I think the droid is a bit oversized

    it doesn't stop me from loving it tho

    The power pack has a little peg on back that looks to me like it should be connected to the bandolier. Is the little canister a droid caller perhaps? Its hard to tell what supposed to be going on with this. I've been searching online trying to figure out how its supposed to go.

    One question I have with the BAD R2s is why are there and extra set of sockets on the lower part of the R2 bodies?

    I think it's so you can interchange the R2 parts with the protocol droid parts. That is, put the legs, arms, and head of a protocol droid on an astromech body. It looks really stupid though. Like the Tinman off of the Wizard of Oz.

    You could also put another set of astro droid legs in there. It's just a fun little add-on thing they did. If you don't like it, then just leave them empty.

    Hmmmm okay. I just saw those and wondered why the heck they were there. Thanks guys!

    I opened up mine tonight and my first question was which one is the pack in? I can't believe they made the WED droid so big. It kinda dwarfs the Jawa in comparison(but that shouldn't be hard, right?) Wonderful articulation on the WED, but it would have been nice if it would have come with wheels. Not that big of a deal though.

    The Jawa is a modified TAC version, which is good. The gun is huge and I'm not sure how the its supposed to be held. It doesn't have a handle and I think its too wide to be gripped at the stock. But its nice looking and alot better than the blunderbuss we got with the POTF2 version.

    Its a pretty nice set:9.8
