    Well, I've been inspired by Tony's Cheap Props site to build my own Jawa. It's going to be a father / son project for me and my 4 year old. [​IMG] He's really excited about it, and I think it would be a good project for us. I would love to see pics if you have done this yourself, or if you've purchased one from someone.

    Also, if you have a source for the bandoliers and ammo pouches needed, please let me know. Any references for a Jawa blaster would be greatly appreciated as well.

    So, if you've got a Jawa, show it off!! [​IMG]

    I don't have any pics, but with the exception of the bandoliers my total cost was less than 35.00...and it was finished in a day! [​IMG]

    I have an ammo bag on the way(thanks yodaman). And I found a bandolier for 30 bucks whenever I can afford that. Then I will really get moving on mine. It should be fairly cheap other than those antique ammo stuff.

    Here are mine in progress
    [​IMG]

    This was the first thing I have sewed in my life on a machine!! It is not the most professional job done, but they came out great, If I can do it, you can do it!! :)

    The eyes are now almost done, I used 10mm LED's for them behind my bubbles.
    The belts on the one are just to see how things look and will not be used other than the german pouch.
    I'm making all my bandoliers out of vinyl using Dallas's pattern from his site.
    Mine are just a generic Jawa and are not from either movie.
    The toy rifle that the one is holding will be getting made into Jawa blaster.
    The other one that is looking like he is waiting for a beer will be holding a droid caller.

    I've been wanting to build one for a while. Are there any tutorials that tell how the blanket needs to be sewn to make the robes? I'll have to have my mommy sew it for me [​IMG]

    Small plastic shop in NYC. they come in a strip of 8 different sized domes. They are clear with amber lighting gel and flashlight lamps/reflectors behind.

    As for the diffs:

    ANH- tall, human shaped head with lower eyes. The eyes in the film were attatched over the actors cheeks and the face cover had HUGE holes for the actors to see out of. The eyes were attatched to the head with black gaffer tape (very sloppily, i might add). This tape made the eyes look "squinty". Some used swimming goggles as domes (of which some were flat and some were bubbled).

    Hands were leather gloves or monster hands(tough to tell) and had fur on the backs of the hands.

    Some of the hoods in ANH tied in the back.

    The robes were rich brown and some a more orange color (look at the droid sale, you'll see both) Later one of these lighter colored ones was used to give Lak Sivrak a cloak int the CA pick-up shots for the Cantina. which leads us too...



    ROTJ- Wider, more structured head, with a scrim to see through. The eyes are higher, more "eye level". The eyes are on an oval mount and clean circles.

    The robe colors were lighter and more orange. These are on the MOM display. My guess is these are the same robes used in ANH, just the lighter,orange-y ones.



    TPM- Different pattern (more sophisticated with seperate sleeves) Different fabric (darker and more square pattern on the texture) More "neck in the hood, looking like a scarf.


    I cheated my ANH's to look a little cleaner but still squinty. I've since made them a little more "wonky". I still may go back and go full on screen used look with gobs of gaffer tape and eys pointing every which way [​IMG]

    Well I guess I'll be doing an ESB version. A little of this a little of that. I like the darker robes but also like the look of the jersey gloves on the ROTJ. As for the eyes, I saw a production pic somewhere that showed the eyes to be those outdoor christmas bulbs taped on the cheeks. But that might have been for the background Jawas. Anywho I hope to get mine going again soon so I can post some pics. I have been on a search for a styrofoam head, but no luck.

    One more thing, does anyone do a resin kit for the Ion blaster?

    Here is a blaster I had put up here a while back. It's not resin, however. I've made some adjustments to the launcher adaptor since but I haven't put up recent photos yet. I have some references on this blaster. I hope the pic works. Since there's no more photopoint, I'm currently trying photoisland.
    Give me a shout if you're interested.

    Hey Tom,

    Where did the hairy hands come from?
    I was just flipping through the Chronicles just now which show ANH jawas with the darker robes and squinty eyes, and the gloves worn are the same jersey gloves as used in DCB's ROTJ version.

    Got any pics of hairy handy jawas? [​IMG]

    Wow! What a turn out! Thanks everyone for the pics, and now I have a source for the ammo pouches as well. I've made the Home Depot run, and have most of the parts that I will need. Still trying to decide how to do the eyes, though. I still have two questions...

    1. Does anyone have a source for the styrofoam heads? I bought a 6 inch styrofoam ball, but would like something larger.

    2. Any kits out there for the blaster?

    Thanks!

    thanks! that was kind of a thrown together thing. Kmart tubs and some ducting and of course, krylon spraypaint.

    as for the jawa hoods, that's just how i had em on for the pics, they're pretty big hoods, actually. it's all in how ya pose em. On the one with the really tight sideways oval, i was goin for the look of the guy who shoots R2. he had his shut down pretty tight

    * Wampa, I just noticed, you put eye-lids on one of them, fantastic.
    I've got to build one. I found complete instuctions on ezboards, before it got overtaken by pop-ups. It looks like it'll be a bit pricey though.
    Though just to be different, I'm thinking about putting a motion sensor in it linked to the blaster so that it "shoots" when someone goes by. I'm affraid I'm too much of an electronics nitwit to link a U'tinni shout with it. It'd be cool though.

    hehehe good idea! first u gotta make one strong enough to hold the * blaster! frikkin heavy!

    yeah, i did the eyelids on both ANH ones. (one more squinty than the other). I used black gaffer tape but did it under the black hood so they'd look a little cleaner. I may still change it to tape on the outside, just all messy and sloppy like the real ones. Guess i'm a little spoiled by lookin at the ROTJ one at MOM.

    Doesn't Radio Crap sell those recorders that hold like 20 or 30 seconds of sound? You could probly record the Utinni yell and the blaster shot on it, then hook it up with your sensor.

    Yeah, I think it could work fairly easily. I don't know how to hook up the sensor to it though, but we have some electronics geniuses here like hyperdyne. I'm sure someone can help.

    This part is for the guys who have their Jawa finished. Is the inner cloak a full cloak or more like Vaders inner cape?

    There's a shot of Jack Purvis wearing just the under-robe in one of the old INSIDER issues. It looks to be a wool pull over robe wil the polo type collar (slit, but no buttons)

    overall shape is very much like the outer robe.
