I have to admit, there isn't much that's redeeming about the large size Jawa figure. Basically, it's a non-descript hunk of brownish plastic with a robe that won't stay closed and a bandolier that always falls off. But I still tend to like the little guy-- it's so darn cute!

The articulation of this figure was pretty poor: six points, at the hips, shoulders and wrists. But the goofiest things about it are the eyes. They're transparent bulbs of amber plastic, which look as though they should light up somehow. They don't, however, though they do manage to reflect a fair bit of light. Anyway, I can't think of much more to say about this toy, except that I would love to have about 100 of them, so I could line them up like a huge Jawa army.
