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.

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.

POTF2 Commtech Jawa and Gonk Droid First Shots


Pictured is a POTF2 Jawa and Gonk Droid First Shot. Each figure is unpainted and non-sonic welded, so they can be taken apart. Each figure is also devoid of any copyright information. The Jawa is molded in beige (flesh), blue, green (tunic) and brown plastic. A prototype blaster molded in beige plastic had been included with the figure. The head has been purposely left off the figure, so it will not break if removed. The Gonk Droid is molded in white (base) and beige (legs) plastic.

Here are pictures of each figure when taken apart. The Jawa came with a clear insert that has been placed inside the head. The middle piece of the Gonk Droid is used when putting the figure together. Though I have been fortunate enough to add other Commtech Jawa first shots to my collection, the Gonk Droid makes this addition even more special.

Clone Wars Jawas (Vendor Structural Sample)


Pictured is a Clone Wars Jawas Packaging sample.Technically a Vender structural sample, these are created to get approval on the weight of the board stock, blister fit and depth of the bubble. The figures and blister are affixed to yellow cardstock that has been die cut to the specifications of the cardback prior to production.

 
Here is a close up of the blister and figures.Though not shown, the figures have "HFE" written on the top of their heads.

 
Though not the most exciting picture, here is a layout of the back of the card. The cardback is blank and white in color. The carded sample is a nice fit to my Clone Wars first shots. This is one of many modern carded samples I have managed to obtain over the years.

POTF2 Saga Jawa Mock-up (MOC)


Pictured is a Jawa Mock-up on a Saga cardback. I have to admit that I had been very skeptical when this first appeared on Ebay. While the Jawas were not released for the Saga Collection (2002 - 2004), they were produced for the Original Trilogy Collection (OTC) from 2004 - 2005. Unfortunately, I can only guess that these were mocked-up to see what the figures would look like prior to the OTC cardbacks being produced. Similar to most mock-ups, an existing cardback and insert had been used. In this case, a C3PO cardback and Darth Maul insert. There are subtle differences between the insert used on this mock-up and the produced version. The bubble, however is interesting, as it matches the one used when the figures were produced on OTC cardbacks. The inner tray is cut for each figure and weapon as well. Since the Jawas were repainted versions of the ones produced in 1996, it makes sense that the same figures would be used for this mock-up. These make a very notable addition to my ongoing Modern pre-production collection.
