VC Jawa
Short for "Vinyl Cape Jawa." The first version of Kenner's Jawa action figure came with a vinyl cape; this was quickly replaced by a cloth poncho, making the original something of a rare variation. The figure is today notorious for having been counterfeited ad nauseum, in both its loose and carded forms. However, the authentic carded VC Jawa remains one of the rarest and most expensive of all carded Star Wars figures. The VC Jawa is also often called the "plastic cape Jawa."
