I also do not collect the 12" Dolls but I know many members here on the forum collect them. So again guys please help, show all of us your 12" Jawa dolls collection.

Sorry Lars, another week that I have nothing to add, really wish I did. :(
Jawa and R2 large size action figures are high on my list of wants, if anyone has either gor sale, boxed or loose considered.
Sorry for the cheap plug :roll:
Hope everyone has lots to show.

It is not a DOLL!! :shock: It is an ACTION FIGURE!! :lol: Barbie’s a doll.. G.I Joe coined the phrase action figure - for boys toys.

I like some of the 12” range. I have a nice loose Jawa, I’ll stick a photo up tomorrow.

I think that one or two, well one in particular take offence to these collectibles being called dolls. :?
Best call them large scale action figures, that way you won’t offend anyone...

Sadly, I too never collected the 12 inch toys. However, there are some terrific sculpts in the range (the Han, Luke, Leia and Ben are simply outstanding likenesses), so hopefully some other members with a little more shelf space than me will be able and willing to share their Jawa images with the Forum :-)

My post was not serious... just a joke. Call them what you like, no offence taken :)
They were talking about this on the documentary The Toys that made us, which is why I said it :wink:

I know :lol: , but I am sure that some will be if I did not change it. But maybe this thread will be great to discuss if they are dolls or action figures :lol: I know when I talk with mumbo about it, then he say action figures and I say dolls just to tease him :lol:

I do like this little fella, I bought him years ago. The robe on these is really nice. I think it’s one of the best of the 12”.

Wow Rob, he looks fantastic :shock: Do you know if there is variants of this jawa or different boxes he was sold in ?

Do you have a jawa 3 3/4 figure than you can place next to that amazing big jawa to show the size difference ? :wink:

Haven't got the Jawa 12", I always found them quite hard to find. Below is the 12" line in a Kenner ESB in-package catalog. I did manage to get the IG-88 12", just because the rarity attracted me. The lack of a ESB line of 12" disappointed me.

I believe it was the old age problem, if the line doesn’t sell then they stop making the line!
Shame as I think that these are really underrated, Ive been looking for a good boxed R2 dor some time.
