Jawas Wanted

Oh, the ideas I get sometimes…

I’m looking to get my hands on a few of the old Jawa metal miniatures produced by West End Games during the 80s and 90s. There appears to have been just a single type manufactured, but it appeared in both the boxed set A New Hope (product #40304) and the blister pack Denizens of Tatooine (product #40427). If you happen to have a spare West End Jawa you’d be willing to part with for either cash or trade, I’d be interested in acquiring him. I’m looking for a total of three (3).

I know someone is going to suggest it so let me state now that I know there are pre-painted plastic figures available from the recent WotC Star Wars Miniatures Game, but I’m specifically looking for the West End lead/pewter ones. Painted or unpainted, it matters not to me. If you want to do business, either pull your sandcrawler up to my desert space igloo or drop me an email at poleandrope[at]gmail[dot]com.

Let's get this out of the way first: Jawas are awesome. I've got a small horde of them myself. I've not come across any metal mini versions, though I have some other WEG Star Wars characters.

I assume you've shopped around the usual suspects inc. ebay, etc. But there's another alternative in the Galoob Micro Machine minis that came out several years ago. They're also pre-painted plastics, but you get a nice troop of them together at least.

Good luck!
