I'm a big fan of Diamond Select Toys' vinyl banks - they're pretty cheap, pretty nice, and pretty sizable in an era where things are getting more expensive and smaller. At C2E2 in Chicago this weekend, they'll be selling an Exclusive Star Wars 1:4 Scale Jawa Vinyl Bank. The regular version has a droid caller, the convention exclusive version has a blaster. As a roughly 11-inch tall vinyl bank, it's pretty hefty for the asking price of just $22, particularly considering the low edition size of 250! See the full picture after the jump.
Diamond sent along the picture and some copy, and here it is:
"Think you've gotten all of the surprising Star Wars news you can handle this year? Well brace yourself for more! Diamond Select Toys will offer an exclusive variant of their vinyl Jawa bank at C2E2, the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, this weekend! That's right, only 250 have been made, and they're all in Chicago right now!
The variants which costs $22, depicts the 1/4 scale Jawa holding an ion blaster, instead of the regular edition's restraining bolt caller. As used by the Jawas in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, the ionization blaster fires a bolt that disrupted electrical systems, temporarily shutting down droids which they would then claim under Tatooine salvage laws.
Only 250 of this vinyl bank were made, so get to C2E2 ASAP, or find someone who's already there to pick one up for you!"
