Hot Toys Star Wars – Jawa and EG-6 Power Droid set up for Pre-Order!Jose Lopez
Hot Toys has made so many Star Wars sixth scale figures at this point, that it becomes easy to forget that there are plenty of characters left to do in the franchise. While getting multiple releases based on leads such as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo will never stop being very welcome, it’s the supporting players that help flesh out the “galaxy far, far away”. That reason alone is why I’m so excited that Hot Toys has announced the pre-order for a Jawa and the EG-6 Power Droid set.
Let’s be honest, the Power Droid, as pretty as it is, is a glorified accessory. The Jawa is the real star here, and he looks magnificent.
I’ve always enjoyed the Jawas. They’re cute, scratching that Ewok itch, but if you look at them in a certain way, they’re pretty friggin’ creepy. If I happened by a few of those guys in the desert, clanging junk around, screaming, “Utinni” at the top of their lungs? I’d run for the hills! That’s a big part of the appeal for me.
The tailoring and weathering on the robe is spot-on, giving me flashbacks to watching the original Star Wars on a crappy CRT television in my family living room.
The addition of LEDs for the eyes is genius and, probably pretty obvious, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The Jawa’s “accessory”, the Power (or “Gonk”) Droid is a cool addition, and helps flesh out the release, considering the tiny nature of the Jawa figure.
I suppose they could have given us two Jawas, but this is definitely more interesting and allows for some variety on the shelf. A good addition that also makes sense for the headliner.
Army building Hot Toys is a pretty expensive and, some would say, unsustainable, feat, but this Jawa figure really gives me the urge. Imagine having three or four of these little guys running around your Luke or Obi-Wan. Perfection.

【Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope – 1/6th scale Jawa & EG-6 Power Droid Collectible Set】
The Star Wars galaxy is vast and filled with numerous alien species and droids. Today Hot Toys is delighted to further broaden its Star Wars 1/6th scale collectibles series by introducing the Jawa and EG-6 Power Droid collectible set based on the characters’ appearances in Star Wars: A New Hope!
Jawas are meter-tall humanoids completely hidden behind rough, hand-woven robes. Their faces are concealed within the dark folds of a cowl, from which peer their sickly glowing yellow eyes. They comb the deserts of Tatooine in search of discarded scrap and wayward mechanicals, incapacitate droids and drag them to their treaded fortress-homes, immense sand-scarred vehicles known as sandcrawlers, and sell their hastily refurbished junk to moisture farmers who are hard-pressed to find a better selection elsewhere.
Little more than walking batteries, power droids trundle along as directed by their owners or their programming, recharging vehicles and machinery. They are often called “Gonk” droids in imitation of their simple vocalizations. There are many different models of power droid, and are common sights throughout the galaxy but little noticed despite their critical importance to both military and civilian life.
Meticulously created based on the appearance of the two characters in the movie, the 1/6th scale Jawa collectible figure features newly developed head with LED lights, skillfully tailored costume, variety of accessories, and a sand-themed figure base. The EG-6 Power Droid is finely crafted with detailed mechanical body with weathering effects, and also comes with a sand-themed figure base.
