Star Wars Droid Factory Playset (MISB)


Pictured is a Star Wars Droid Factory Playset. Produced in 1979, the Droid Factory offered kids hours of fun in building and customizing different droids from a series of parts. Featuring a crane, you could "lift" and "drop" different parts from one side to the next.  The box measures 14" wide, 12" tall and 4" deep.Unlike the Empire Strikes Back release of the same Playset, only Jawas, R2D2 and other various Droids are featured on the front.
Here is a picture of one side, featuring a kid lifting different parts and building his own special Droid.Unfortunately, the box has seen better days and is in rough condition. The Playset is still sealed on both sides and has never been opened.Though easier to find than the Empire Strikes Back release, this makes an affordable addition to my Jawa collection.

Funko Holiday Jawa Bobblehead First Shot

Pictured is a Holiday Jawa Bobblehead First Shot Prototype. Produced in 2008 by Funko, four different Bobbleheads were created with a Holiday or Christmas theme. The set included Darth Vader, Yoda, C3PO and a Jawa. The figure is unpainted and molded in Brown and White. The base does not contain copyright information. The figure measures 4 1/2" tall and features a working spring that makes the head go up and down when pushed. This is one of many modern Prototypes I have in my ever growing Pre-Production collection.

Vintage Jawa Lobby Card signed by Rusty Goffe.



Pictured is a signed "Jawa" Lobby Card by Rusty Goffe. He is one of many actors that played the Jawa character in the Original Star Wars Saga in 1977. This beautifully framed card had been given to me by my "Secret Santa" Mike Z 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. 


Here is a close-up of the Actor's name under the frame. Also noted is "The Collection of MADBROWNZ" as well. This personal touch makes this gift even more special. Mike also included a sweet loose Jawa (not pictured) with this framed picture. I cannot thank him enough for a truly unique gift that I will proudly display with my Jawa Collection.

Promotional Gentle Giant Jawas Mini-Busts (Promo/7000)


Pictured are Promotional Mini-Busts Jawas produced by Gentle Giant. Produced in 2007, the busts are identical to the regular ones that were sold to the public, but these were used for Display or to Promote sales by Gentle Giant. The box is not sealed, which makes sense for a Promotional item.
Here is a picture of the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) stating “PROMO/7000”, which is still sealed in the top portion of the box. Sadly, the sticker is missing from the bottom of the box, but this is a nice addition to my ever growing Jawa collection.

Japanese (Takara) Keshi Rubber Jawas

Pictured are Keshi Rubber Jawas produced by the Japanese Company Takara in the late 1970's or early 1980's. These Jawas were produced in at least nine different colors; Green, Yellow, Black, Blue, Orange, Red, White, Translucent Blue and Translucent Green. They are made of rubber and are flexible enough to be squeezed in ones hand.

Here is a picture of the back of the Jawas. They were distributed/sold in vending machines and came carded with other rubber figures. The letters GMFGI are stamped on the back of each figure and measure 1" tall. I only recently became aware of the figures existence at Celebration VI and have been fortunate enough to track down the Green, Yellow and Orange versions. They are also pictured on a Traditional Japanese Box that the seller had been gracious enough to send me when I recently purchased the Yellow one. My hunt continues for the other six.

Power Of The Force Jawas Coin


Pictured is a Vintage Power Of The Force Jawas Coin. Unlike most coins that are sold loose, this one is still sealed in a white sleeve with a clear cello plastic cover, The front of the Coin displays Jawas and Desert Scavengers with the Sandcrawler and Jawas in the background.


Here is a picture of the back of the coin. The Jawas are described as "Furry, cloaked inhabitant of Tatooine who captured R2D2 and C3PO and sold them to Luke Skywalker's Uncle." The Star Wars Logo is visible above the description and "May The Force Be With You" below. The Jawas coin is classified as a Category II and is fairly easy to find loose.

Celebration VI Jawa & R5D4 Star Tots


Pictured is a Jawa and R5D4 Star Tot figure. Given away at Celebration VI as part of the Collecting Track Panels, these pay homage to the Vintage line where Tot like figures were being considered by Kenner. Each figure is cast in metal, and then colored filled to match the characters likeness. The Jawa is showcased in front the sands of Tatooine and R5D4 with a Jawa and Sandcrawler in the background.

Here is a picture of the back of the card showing all twenty of the Star Tot characters that were being given away at Celebration VI. The Jawa had been sponsored by Gus Lopez and R5D4 by Broc Walker. Each figure comes in a clamshell and the figure is removable. These were one of the best exclusives of Celebration VI and make a nice addition to my collection.

Jawa & R2D2 Reference Slide

Pictured is a reference slide of the Jawas and R2D2. This slide came from The Earth, who purchased a number of similar slides from LFL in the past. The slide shows the Jawas carrying off R2D2 after blasting him in the sands of Tatooine. The slide is hard to see without being displayed or photographed with good light. The slide has the number II on the front top and 154 on the bottom middle. Though not pictured, the slide has The Earth on the white sticker and Jawa & R2D2 slide as well.

Here is a picture of the back of the slide. The slide measures 32 mm by 32 mm and is in good condition. This is one of many finds at Celebration VI.

Funko Vinyl Jawa Bobblehead First Shot

Pictured is a Funko Vinyl Jawa Bobblehead First Shot. The figure is unpainted and does not contain copyright information on the bottom of the figure. There are two small holes located on the bottom of the figure where it would be attached to a base. The figure had been raffled off during "Funko Fun Days" at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con.


Here is a picture of the back of the figure. Here you can see how wide the head is. The spring is functional, so the figure can "bobble" up and down when pushed. The figure measures 3 3/4" tall, which is pretty small for a Bobblehead. In all of my years of collecting this is only the third Pre-production Jawa Bobblehead I have seen for public sale. This adds a rather unique addition to my modern Pre-production run.

POTF2 Galactic Hero Jawa First Shots


Pictured are a pair of Galactic Hero Jawa first shots. Each figure is unpainted and contain copyright information on the bottom of their base (2003 LFL Hasbro China and Made in China 2009 LFL). Unfortunately, the figures have no moving parts, so the play factor is not the best. I can only assume these would make excellent missiles when playing Star Wars with your friends. 




Here are some pictures of each figure and together with a partially painted version. These make an excellent addition to my ongoing modern Jawa pre-production run.
