August 2012 – Vintage Jawa
For August, I picked up the Vintage Jawa. This was a figure that was released as one of the first wave of Star Wars figures back when they originally came out. The Jawa was a figure that I owned when I was a kid. I had the cloth cape version of the Jawa, but my next door neighbour, she had the Vinyl cape Jawa. I remember vividly playing with the figure in the sandbox, as she got hers before I got mine. If a person only knew I guess, she might have taken better care of it. I ordered the Jawa from eBay, the condition is pretty good, except for a ink mark on the back of the leg. I will try and clean that up if possible, or might upgrade this guy down the road. The Blaster is actually from the one I had from when I was a kid. Of all the things a person can save, this was one of them, and sort of surprising given the size. The rest of my original Jawa is long gone.
