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.
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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
