Hot Toys announced the Jawa and EG-6 (“Gonk”) Power Droid 1/6 scale figure set today! These two figures have long been displayed at various conventions around the world including Comic Con Seoul.

Well, now it’s official. I have to say, never has a Jawa looked so good. This particular Jawa comes complete with LED light up eyes, a welder, communicator, and rifle.

The Gonk droid comes with 8 points of articulation and, frankly, I’m surprised Hot Toys found that many things to articulate!

The Jawa and EG-6 set is schedueld to arrive the first half of 2020. We’ll update you with pricing and pre-order links as they go live!

【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.
