The Star Wars Kenner Vintage Collection Jawa action figure, released in 1977, is a classic piece of Star Wars memorabilia. The Jawa is a small humanoid creature known for its glowing yellow eyes and brown hooded robe, which are accurately depicted in this action figure.

The Jawa action figure comes with a small, removable ion blaster, a weapon commonly used by the Jawas in the Star Wars series and held in the figure's hand.

In the Star Wars universe, Jawas are known as scavengers from the desert planet of Tatooine. They are recognized for their ability to repair and resell discarded or broken machinery. This characteristic is not directly represented in the action figure, but it is a significant part of the Jawa's identity within the Star Wars genre.

One unique feature of the Kenner Vintage Collection Jawa action figure is a rare variant in a cloth robe. Unlike many action figures from the same era, which often used molded plastic for all parts of the figure, the rare variant of the Jawa features a robe made from actual fabric.

Another interesting aspect of this action figure is its size. The Jawa figure is smaller than most Star Wars action figures, with R2-D2 being even shorter. This is in line with the Jawa's depiction in the Star Wars films, where they are shown as being significantly shorter than human characters.

Vintage Star Wars Variants: Jawa by review sentiment positive

The collection of Jawas featured in the video is very interesting and unique. Jawas seem to come with a variety of distinctive features - from differences in hood sizes to robe textures and stitching colors. Some of the Jawa variants are quite rare and sought after by collectors. One of the most prized figures is a 1977 Kenner Star Wars Jawa variant made in Hong Kong, which holds an impressive grade of 90 near-mint plus to mint. It sports a light brown stitch and is part of the rich divergence in the Jawa line. An equally captivating piece is the Vinyl Cape Jawa variant. It's valuable, particularly because original versions didn't sell well making it a rare find. This Vinyl Cape Jawa figure, made in Hong Kong, received a 78.5 near-mint plus grade. However, due to the tendency of vinyl capes to discolor over time, it would've been preferable if it came in an archival case offering UV protection. That being said, collecting Jawas can become an engaging venture with over a dozen known different variants, each presenting its own distinct charm and allure.
