    Hey guys. Wanted to share my custom 1:1 Jawa. Just finished him up.

    I purchased this piece unfinished and in pretty rough shape. So, I spent some time making him his best. I added the feet, fur/gloves for the hands, face wrap, weathering, painting, etc.

    The only thing that bums me out is the fabric. It looks fine, but it's not coarse enough to be film accurate. I'll live.

    Looks pretty cool in person, check out the pics:

    Thanks! I need to get him on a timer so turns on automatically at night.

    ***MOOTINIE!!***Take his hood down!! Take his hood down!! I've never seen a Jawa's head. Little guys always creeped me out :lol and always wondered what they looked like without their robe on... Not a Jawa perv or anything, just curious :$ Nice 1:1 build. Looks sweet and ditto on the weapon :thumbsup Awesome.

    The pose is killer! That just makes the whole prop and makes it stand out from other Jawas out there. Well done.

    I love the way that youve posed him in a way that suggest movement. Very nice :thumbsup

    Superb work. One of the finest static Jawas I've seen.

    That is awesome. Love the Blaster. Where did that come from?

    I was wondering if the head and eyes should be a little bigger?

    AWESOME! I agree with you that the fabric could be a bit courser but it doesn't take away from the statue. I'd love to see him with an ion blaster or something but again, none of that matters, this thing is gorgeous. GREAT JOB!

    Wow, this is a truly awesome 1:1 piece. THE BEST JAWA I'VE SEEN!

    Getting the right natural pose on a life-size figure is daunting. I love the slight forward lean (and to the side) with the head slightly cocked.

    I also love that you can see one foot, and the way he's holding his gun is perfect!!

    It just looks like a Jawa would stand!...:thumbsup

    thanks for sharing the pics!

    Oh wow! I really love the pose! Great job, that's probably the best Jawa I've seen done.

    That's awesome looking! I'm going to make a display Jawa sometime too, so I'll probably snag your photos for inspiration ;) Fabric doesn't look too bad, the color seems spot on though, not sure my fabric color is.

    Maybe instead of a timer for the eyelights at night, you could use a light sensor instead? Some energy saving bulbs have built in light sensor circuits you could scavenge.

    I am deeply impressed! Though the eyes are a bit 2 small this extraterrestrial dwarf looks amazing ;-)

    Hi
    Great job on your JAWA.
    Thought you would like to see my Son dressed up as a JAWA .
    I made his costume out of old bath towels, it took about a week to make. He was a big hit at the Supanova expo .

    That's a heck of a good weathering job, and a good pose and figure all around!

    Good luck on the sale. :thumbsup
