2004 Holiday Jawas - Fan Club exclusive
« on: June 14, 2004, 03:10 PM »
Surprised nobody's commented on this one here yet...

The world-renowned GH Swami predicted last week, that the Fan Club would be getting yet another exclusive "figure" in later this year, and that it would be Part 3 in the continuing McQuarrie art/Holiday figure line.  Three Jawas (supposedly setup like the 3 Wise Men according to Mike), apparently inspired by this particular shot:



So, what's everybody think?  I know not everyone's been a huge fan of the previous two Holiday sets (Droids and Santa Yoda), but I thought they were both kinda cool, in a unique EU kinda way...  So I guess I'm fine with getting another one to go along with the other two, and continue on with the line.  Plus, they make fun Christmas displays around the house during the Holiday season...   :P

So I'll definitely be on board for the "3 Wise Jawas", to complete my Holiday set.  Anybody else collecting all of these?

P.S.  I've still got a couple MIMSB Santa Yodas, that I bought from the Fan Club last year for a guy who flaked out on me.  So if anyone needs 'em still (for cost), LMK!   :-*

I like the last 2 sets (Droids & Santa Yoda). I'll be getting the next set for sure.

Ya know, those Jawa's in that pic give me an idea with the new Jawa Kubrick release.  ;)

I really liked the first two. This one might be stretching it a bit, though.

It's not as much a complaint about the fact we're getting something new and unique, which is good, but that in a year with so many repacks that have scrapped hopes of quality resculpts (Bib Fortuna, namely) I'd have preffered Hasbro's manpower put towards better OT efforts instead.

And where exactly would the challenge be if they did that, Beth?!?  You demanding collectors just want everything handed to you on a silver platter nowadays...  Sheesh!   ::)

If you can't hack into their website, place your own orders, and send out your own stuff to yourself, then your just $h!t outta luck.  Get with the program!   :-X

And who called it? This guy ;)

I'm happy as, well, a guy that wanted to see a set made of this.

Next year, Santa Ewok, maybe wokling...

I'm looking forward to this set too.  I kind of like the Christmas sets, something different and nice to put around the house at the holidays.  I wasn't ever able to locate the Droids set anywhere around here, but might look to pick it up on ebay at some point.  I really liked the Santa Yoda, and hope to add the Jawas this year as well.

If I see it and I like it, I'll buy it!

If I see it and it sucks, I'll pass.

Sounds neat though...
