Utini! Clone Wars Style

Star wars, nothing but Star Wars! I have been watching more of the Star Wars Clone Wars Animated Series on Cartoon Network and have to say I'm really liking where it is going. There are some characters I enjoy seeing pop up in story lines, but what I really dig is seeing the new animated style applied to some of the original trilogy background characters.

That's why when I saw this set of Clone Wars Jawas pop up in the toy aisle last year it was an easy purchase. This is really a nice set of Jawas, probably one of the best. Sure they are not too much on the articulation side, but they do have some in key places and they do come with weapons that they can holster. I really am digging the clean design of these animated characters more and more.

I cannot tell you off hand which episode these guys appeared in, I'm thinking they were some background characters and just thrown into the toy mix for the line, but tell me how cool would it be to see an animated line based on A New Hope? Holly crap, my mind is just full of images of animated Sand People, Stormtroopers and Cantina Aliens. Please, someone make this happen!

I don't know if they've been in any episodes, but I'm pretty sure they were in the theatrically released movie. Either way, very cool figures!

I agree, love the interpretations of existing on-screen characters. While the current figures are obviously prequel predominant, they have guaranteed 100 episodes. In that kinda time frame I would expect to see an animated Tauntaun and/or Wampa.

Feliz Cumpleanos ESB...Slick

I have these little dudes and love them! They were a total impulse buy, and I kept them by my computer for a while, randomly picking them up and playing with them. Jawas rule.
