The Offworld Jawa figure is based on his appearance in The Mandalorian television series streaming on Disney+, and the inclusion of this race is something you don’t often see in Star Wars movies considering that this is the first races that fans were introduced too in Star Wars: A New Hope. This is a scavenger race that collects technology, including droids and whatever else they can obtain.
The Offworld Jawa is based on his appearance on another planet as some members of the race go off world from their homeworld of Tattooine.
Thank you to Hasbro for providing their Star Wars The Black Series 6″ Offworld Jawa Figure for review.
Availability: October 2019
The Offworld Jawa is packaged in the standard Black Series window box, with black and red box art, including an image of him on the front, and on the back is a bio along with an image.
The Offworld Jawa might be small, but he packs a lot of detail and the figure is mostly covered in a soft goods outer robe that covers most of his body. This material is similar to other soft goods that we’ve seen in The Black Series and The Vintage Collection lines that Hasbro is currently offering, The material is soft and loose fitting, which allows a full range of his joints to move. The ends are held together with the bandolier that goes over the figure’s chest, and because there is a large opening in front of the robe you can freely move his legs and joints. The color of the robe also presents a new variation of the species that fans have never seen before since A New Hope, and this darker color robe creates a mystery of why Offworld Jawa’s have this while members of their race on Tatooine have more of a brown robe.
His head sculpt is also showing red eyes, which is another new look for the race, with the rest of the head in black. The hood is also made of plastic and there is a sculpted texture to it. His sleeves are painted in a dark grey with sculpted texture, and his gloves are painted in black and can hold both of the included blasters. The legs are also in black, with the shoes given a light tan wash to indicate sand or some other surface that they’ve been walking in.
His articulation includes a ball jointed head, ball hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed torso, ball jointed hips, swivel-hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles.
Included are two blasters, one that is connected to the holster on his right hip that can also be stored in it, and a metallic silver blaster with a wash over it.
Overall, the Offworld Jawa is an excellent figure with a great likeness and sculpt. Usually we try to be picky over this line and there might be collectors out there that have passed on him, but maybe you should rethink that as he’s a pleasant surprise and better than you might have thought. If you had not done so already, make sure to pick this up along with other Star Wars The Black Series figures.
