Vinyl-caped, British-made Jawa on Unpunched Card for Auction

21. August 2013 11:31 by jedi1 | 0 Comments

A VINTAGE Star Wars figure – one of the rarest to come on the market – could fetch more than £12,000 when it goes under the hammer at a specialist auction house in the region. The British manufactured figure, made by Palitoy in Coalville, Leicester in 1978, is of a “Jawa” – hooded creatures from the films who buy and sell droids.

What makes it so rare is that is has a vinyl cape and is packaged and mounted on unpunched card.

It is being sold at an autumn auction by an anonymous vendor, who does not want to give away any details of where he lives or how he came to own the figure - and is one of only two known figures of its type in existence - the other figure was sold for £11,300 on Ebay earlier this year.

For further information on this item, please contact Kathy Taylor on +44 (0)1642 750616 or email admin@vectis.co.uk
