Welcome to my little slice of internet heaven. This site showcases some of the coolest Jawa collectibles from my personal collection (unless noted). Also, I have included links to some of my favorite websites, which feature other outstanding collections as well. Thank you for visiting MADBROWNZ and enjoy the "Jawa experience."

Designed by Just Play Toys, these samples had been created for an agreement between Just Play Toys and Underground Toys, to be sold by Underground Toys. When designed, the samples were sent to Underground Toys for comments and approval. The samples measure 12” tall and are missing the tag that would normally be attached to the side, the “I Talk” tag has not been applied and the weapon is very different than the version that had been produced. The sounds that were used for these samples are rougher in clarity and more drawn out. The samples came in a clear bag, a comment sheet for “first round approval” and a tag noting “sample” as well. These are the first plush prototypes I have had the opportunity to add to my collection and I am extremely excited for these additions.

So I admit it, I'm a baggie geek. However and with that being said, I never could have imagined adding a Woolsworth 8 pack to my collection. Heck, I did not even know they existed until about seven years ago when a collector posted a picture of one on Rebelscum. Though they looked odd, I have to admit they looked so awesome.
Unlike most of the Woolsworth 8 packs I have seen over the years, mostly on Facebook, specifically Frank's awesome Baggie Group, recently renamed Baggietastic Collecting Corner, this one is extra special. Based on information from the seller, this is one of three known sealed Woolies (Woolsworth) 8 packs with the figures sealed in individual baggies. The Jawa being one of the eight, makes it even better. The 8 pack has been graded by UKG (90%) and is sealed in a custom case.
The pack includes the following:
Jawa (Palitoy I)
C3PO (Removable Limbs version)
Hammerhead (Palitoy B)
Gamorrean Guard (Made In Mexico)
To say over the moon is an understatement how excited I am as I post this. This is a true centerpiece for my collection and I cannot thank the seller enough for letting me add it to my collection.

The figure is molded in yellow (Back and Front Torso) and Black (Head, Arms and Bottom Torso) and is absolutely gorgeous. The figure is devoid of any copyright information and is sonic welded, so it cannot be taken apart. I doubted the figures existence for a long time, until a random picture showed up of this very figure being displayed in of all places, a Japanese Clothing Store where the owner displayed this amazing run of POTF2 prototypes.
Here is a picture of the other pre-production items that I have managed to obtain over the years for the Ronto and Jawa Beast Pack. A Box Flat (back), bagged sample (front) and same first shot. I am very happy to finally add this figure to my collection.

Pictured is a 30th Anniversary Collection Mock-up proof for the Jawa and Lin Droid. The Jawa and Lin Droid have been hand cut and attached to the card on a clear piece of plastic (not pictured). A partial insert has been placed on the bottom of the card as well. This would have been used to gauge the proper placement of both figures before attaching a bubble.
Here is a picture of the back of the card. One sticker notes the proper placement of the label and the other states the following: “This is a pre-production sample package. This sample is for illustration purposes only. Size and design may vary slightly". This is a very notable addition to my ongoing modern pre-Production collection.

Here is picture of the second card. Though they might appear to be same, there are three Jawas helping Luke inspect R5D4, before purchasing him. As we all know, R5D4 blew a motor and they "settled" for R2D2. The back of the card features C3PO and R2D2 with the text written in Kanji (Japanese)

I am proud to announce my Celebration VII Exclusive MADBROWNZ "Team Tonia" Lapel Pins. These beautiful pins showcase a mean looking Jawa holding a blaster. They also note "Team Tonia" in purple, as I have partnered with them to help benefit Run 4 Project Purple, in their fight to beat Pancreatic Cancer.
These pins will be handed out at Star Wars Celebration CVII from April 16 - 19, 2015. However, ten pins will be set aside and sold with 100% of the benefits going to Run 4 Project Purple, as they help in the search for a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.For more information on Pancreatic Cancer, please visit CurePC.
We were able to raise over $200.00 for Run 4 Project Purple. While this may not seem like a huge amount of money, this will go a long way in making someone's life better. Thank you very much to everyone who bid on our auctions.

Pictured is a POTF2 Original Trilogy Collection (OTC) Jawa Two-Pack with a Green "Hasbro Standard" tag. For quality control purposes, it is common for toys to be routinely inspected during the production process. This particular item has a Green "Hasbro Standard" tag taped (clear) to the back of the card. The tag notes the Date, Item Number, etc. Fortunately, the original tape has not dried off and is still sealed to the back of the card. This particular carded figure would have been released in Mexico or other Spanish markets, as it features both English and Spanish on the front and back of the card.

Here is a group shot of the Resin and Wax figures, as well as the Molds and "First Shots". These unbelievable bootlegs were given to me via my Secret Santa from The Imperial Gunnery Forum. Held once a year, Members are sent the name, address and a list of wants from other collectors. This allows Collectors to not only give to each other, but back to the Community as well.

Pictured is a POTF2 Trilogo Jawa Two-Pack "Quality Control" Sample. For quality control purposes, it is common for toys to be routinely inspected during the production process.This particular item has a "signed sample" sheet attached to the back of the package. The sheet notes the Vender, Item name, product number, etc. Of note, the "Language Version" of choice is UK with a comment "Existing US Product W/O EU .102 Blister Card". Unfortunately, the original tape has dried off from the sign-off sheet, separating it from the card.
Pictured is the front of the card. Here you can see the five different languages detailing the glowing eyes and blaster pistols for the "evil jawas". This is a rather cool addition to my growing modern pre-production Jawa collection.

Here is a picture of the back. When put together, the Sandcrawler measures 10" tall and 18" wide. This is the second Lego Sandcrawler to be released and a welcome addition to my collection.
