Underground Toys 12” Talking Plush Prototypes (Samples)

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.

Woolsworth 8 Pack MISB (UKG 90%)



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:

Palitoy Baggies:
Jawa (Palitoy I)
C3PO (Removable Limbs version)
Weequay
Hammerhead (Palitoy B)
Klaatu
AT-ST Driver
Rebel Commando

Kenner Baggie
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.

POTF2 Ronto Jawa First Shot


I have to admit that after fifteen years of collecting or focusing on Jawas, I still get giddy when I find something that I have been looking to add to my collection for a very long time. Though being one of the most overproduced Beast Packs for the POTF2 line, finding any pre-production stuff for the Ronto or Jawa from that line is very hard. To date, I can think of a few box flats, one bagged sample,which I own and a few pictures of the very first shot that I am extremely happy to add 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.

POTF2 30th Anniversary Collection Jawa and Lin Droid Mock-up Proof

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.

Clone Wars "Tall" Hardcopy

Pictured is a Clone Wars "Tall" Hardcopy Jawa. The Figure is hand painted and more than likely used as a paint master. The head is held by a plastic (white) pin that can be attached to the mid torso of the figure. The arms are held in place by plastic pins and come apart from the top torso. The legs are also held by a plastic pin thru the middle part of the bottom torso and can be separated from the figure. The bottom robe is in one piece and can be attached to the figure. The figure comes complete with a hardcopy weapon (silver) and bandolier.

Here is a picture of my current "run"of Clone Wars Pre-Production Jawas. In the back is a Vendor Mock-up, in the front (Left to Right) is a Tall Hardcopy, Tall First Shot and Short First Shot.

1977 Yamakatsu Japanese Jawa Topps Cards.

One of the best parts of the hobby is discovering something new and being lucky enough to add it to your collection. Pictured is one of three 1977 Japanese Topps cards featuring a Jawa released by the Yamakatsu Corporation. Exclusive to Japan, these 3 1/2" by 5 " cards were sold in cellophane packs and distributed by retailers. The card pictured features R2D2, R5D4, Luke and a Jawa in the background. The back of the card has a picture of C3PO and text in Kanji (Japanese).

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)

Lastly, we have a sealed pack of cards that I recently purchased. There are four cards per pack and though not hard to track individually, sealed packs are not easy to find. These are very notable additions to my collection.

Celebration VII Exclusive Lego Tatooine Mini-Build Set (0054/1350)

Pictured is a Lego Tatooine Mini-Build set. Exclusive to Celebration VII, the set features a "mini" version of the Lars Homestead on Tattoine, with a awesome Sandcrawler in the background and a "ho hum" C3PO being the lone mini-figure in the set. Only 1350 sets were made, which is a fairly low number. This is a welcome addition to my Jawa Collection.

Celebration VII Exclusive MADBROWNZ "Team Tonia" Lapel Pins.


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.

Original Trilogy Collection (OTC) Jawas with "Hasbro Standard" Tag (Spanish Card)

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. 

Pictured is the front of the card. The background of the cardback features a Starburst design, similar to the Canadian Release. A very nice addition to my ongoing modern pre-production run.

Pysber Booties (Custom) Jawa Bootlegs

Pictured are the most awesome custom Jawa Bootlegs that were recently added to my collection. The Psyber Booties (Smelio Dweling Maai Moni) figures are made of hard resin and painted in a broad assortment of cheesy colors.

Here is the second assortment of Jawa bootlegs. Unlike the resin figures, these were cast in dark green and brown wax, making them very fragile.

The maker of these awesome bootlegs were kind enough to include the Molds (Wax and Resin) and "First Shot" of the bootleg figures.

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. 





Original Trilogy Collection (OTC) Jawas with "Hasbro" Tag (Japanese Import Sticker)

Pictured is a POTF2 Original Trilogy Collection (OTC) Jawa Two-Pack with a White "Hasbro" tag. For quality control purposes, it is common for toys to be routinely inspected during the production process. This particular item has a White "Hasbro" 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. A Japanese Import sticker has also been applied to the back of card, noting that the figure would be released in that specific Market.

Pictured is the front of the card. Astute eyes will notice a Japanese Sticker under Warning, possibly noting the appropriate play age for the toy. This is a rather cool addition to my growing modern pre-production Jawa collection.

Original Trilogy Collection (OTC) Jawas with "Hasbro Standard" Tag

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 Vender, Item name, product number, etc. Fortunately, the original tape has not dried off and is still sealed to the back of the card.
Pictured is the front of the card. An "S" has placed on the front of the bubble. I can only assume that this may mean "Sample" or possibly "Standard", due to the tag on the back of the card. This is a rather cool addition to my growing modern pre-production Jawa collection.

POTF2 Trilogo Jawa Two-Pack "Quality Control" Sample (UK)


 
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.

Star Wars Weekends Exclusive Vinylmation Jawa and R5D4 Two-Pack (MISB)


Pictured is the Star Wars Weekends Exclusive Vinylmation Jawa and R5D4 Two-Pack (MISB). This very cool set were only available during a Star Wars Weekends event in May 2014 and limited to 2000 pieces. True to Disney form, each figure has "mouse ears" on their heads.
Here is a picture of the back of the set showing each figure. From what I understand, these sets sold out fairly fast over the Weekend event. This makes a nice addition to my Collection.

Lego Sandcrawler 75059 (MISB)

 
Pictured is a Lego Sandcrawler 75059 (MISB). This is one awesome and HUGE Lego set. The box is nearly 2' wide and 1 1/2' tall. The set comes with fifteen mini-figures (four Jawas) that can pieced together to recreate different scenes on Tatooine or simply Jawas laying waste to more Droids. Based on the number of pieces (3,296) this would take nearly twelve hours to put together.

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.
