This Holiday Jawa (tall version) was released in an Entertainment Earth exclusive 2-pack during the 2004 Holiday season in special round "snow-globe-like" Original Trilogy Collection packaging. The set is based on a christmas card design by Ralph McQuarrie - which was sent out by Lucasfilm in 1994. It shows several Jawas looking through presents.
The figure is based on the tall POTF2 Jawa sculpt from 1996 with a few changes. For one - the Holiday Jawa has a red "shine-through" plastic on the top of the head and in the eyes - instead of a yellow one. So - when the light shines on top of the figure - the eyes will "light-up" red (the small Jawa was given green eyes). Hasbro also changed the arms - which now hold a present - instead of hanging down. The rest of the sculpt is identical to the POTF2 version. The Holiday Jawa has 4 movable parts - including two swivel arms - a swivel waist - and a swivel lower body. Both arms move simultaneously when moved up or down - and since the legs are a block of plastic instead of individually sculpted - the figure stands very nicely by itself. The gift (could this be a Jedi Training Remote?) is molded into the Jawa's hands and can't be removed. There were no accessories included with the figure - except for the Holiday base and the Ralph McQuarrie Christmas card.
The paint job on the Holiday Jawa is very basic - but much stronger than the one found on the small Holiday Jawa. The addition of the red eyes is nice and adds some holiday flavor to the figure (well - if you keep it in context that it's a holiday figure). The Jawa's sculpt is entirely outdated with only 4 movable parts - but it's a nice tribute to Ralph McQuarrie and an overall nice looking set on display during the Christmas season.
