#97: Star Wars Clone Wars Jawas

Lately the more realistically styled Jawas have been sold one at a time, with some random droid companion. Droids are cool and all, but I can do without, unless I particularly like them. But the cartoon Jawas come as a pair, so I decided to pick some up and fill in the scavenger hole in my collection. I suppose it's the simplification of their design to reflect their animated appearance, but there's something about these figures that is just really adorable. I think these are the cutest things that have come out of any Star Wars line. The only complaint I can make is that they are not super articulated, their legs are pretty much stuck with rotating, and the smaller Jawa doesn't have elbows. For their size, I suppose they don't really need much more, and their skirts would get in the way of more leg articulation anyway. On the plus side, they both have holsters for their respective guns. Although they don't have light piped eyes like other Jawas tend to, their eyes are painted a very bright yellow that really pops. I really like these guys, and may need to pick up a couple more sets just to have a whole pack of Jawas.


  1. I've been thinking of picking up a set of these as well, I have to agree the simple animated form works for these, I know they are Clone Wars style, but I think I would like to see more of the classic SW characters done in this style.

  2. It would be nice to see more animated style figures, but so far Hasbro has been pretty insistent that they won't make animated style figures unless they actually appear in the cartoon, and vice versa.
