The Jawa Blaster has two main colour variations. Some examples may appear translucent. TIG believes the translucent effect is created during the injection moulding process and is a result of an insufficient amount of dye being added to the plastic and/or poorly mixed pigment granules. The translucency can sometimes be visible to the naked eye but is better seen when held to a light source. Although translucent coloured versions are not strictly variants TIG has opted to feature and list some of the known examples.
The Jawa was one of the first twelve figures released and saw a full production run right through to the final POTF cardbacks. Because of this there are a number of variations to be found.
It's important to note that the Brazilian Glasslite line included a Jawa blaster with their Princess Leia Organa figure. The blaster came in either a Silver or Solid Black colour.
Note: The only Solid Black version of the Jawa Blaster is the Glasslite issue.

A poor cast created from an original blaster.
This repro comes from a set of six floating blasters (read more HERE). It mimics an original by floating when placed on water and rising back to the surface when submerged. The blaster is cast in a Rigid, Shiny, Black plastic with Excess Flashing.
