Was this the first appearance of soft goods that were not vinyl?

When did the cloth-caped Jawas hit?

The cloth-caped Jawas hit in 1978, just after the Sandpeople and Death Squad Commander wave.  The Jawa was the very last figure to be released later that year. The cloth replaced the vinyl caped Jawas almost immediately upon release. This is why the vinyl caped Jawas are so rare and command enormous prices. I own a genuine vinyl caped Jawa with several cloth caped ones.

The vintage figure pictured has a production flaw. His codpiece is not painted. Anyway, the original Dengar was packed in with the Sears Bespin Cloud City playset, although Dengar was not seen on Cloud City.  Since the mid '90s to present, there have been 4 more Dengars produced. The POTF 2 version was from ROTJ, not ESB, because he lacked the backpack. There were the more recent ESB versions with a backpack including the Marvel Comics version, and now the new vintage style which is the ultimate version. It seems that Dengar is totally covered now, and need not be revisited ever again. No bounty hunter display is complete without him, although he was seen in ESB for a grand total of about 2 seconds!

The POTF 2 version had a terrific rifle, because the strap could hang off his left shoulder like the film. The newer vintage version has the strange straps on the legs that don't go with the detail on his pants.  The Clone Wars version may be a better representation, although its an animated representation.

Let's not forget that there is no updated version of the other Nikto! The one on the skiff.
