I love the jawas but since GG hasnt got around to doing a jawa bust or statue I was looking into getting the attakus version. I was wondering if anyone here had one or had seen one in person if they could tell me how big it is and if its worth it. I have seen them for $180 but they don't even sell at that price, whats a good price for one?

I have the Attakus Jawa, and I must say, it is WELL worth the price. $180 is a reasonable price for it. Just make sure whoever is selling it doesn't rape you on freight. I think I payed $199 shipped for mine when it first came out, and they were around $230 upon initial release. I don't regret buying it at all. Just keep an eye on the cord between the gun and supply pack. It is very fragile, so make sure you aren't getting a re-glued statue.

I agree, it is an awesome piece. I paid around $240 for it as well, so if you can get it under $200, do not hesitate. I also have the Attakus Emperor - which is quite impressive, but I bought it for $200, which makes it an even sweeter deal. They do great stuff, but the prices of the statues is a bit daunting. Especially when you look at what Gentle Giant did with the Chewbacca statue. This piece is AWESOME - detail, paint, everything. AND you can get it for $150. I'll have a tough time buying Attakus again if GG continues to do quality pieces.

For $180, it is definitely worth it. I think I paid $219 shipped, and I didn't regret it once I received it. The detail on it is amazing. It's actually one of my favorite statues.

While I only have the Attakus Padme, the quality is stunning. To get an Attakus of one of your favorite for that low a price is a deal you shouldn't pass up.

The Attakus Jawa is amazing. It would look great dispayed next to the upcoming Tusken Raider statue.

I love that Tatooine vibe..

Looks Great even for its "small" size. Price is reasonable even at $200+ shipped. I defintely cant wait for the newer pieces to be released. I will be carrying these as well as older statues from Attakus for good prices shipped.

It's a nice piece. The "rhinestone" eyes kind of bugged me though...

Nah, try sitting the Jawa on a reflective surface and have a light shining down on it. You'll be more impressed with the eyes then.
