I remember when I was little taking the vinyl capes off of my Jawas and throwing them out. Back in 1978, the vinyl capes seemed cheap and silly and had no play value. Granted, to the kids of the original Star Wars Generation all the 12 back vinyl capes were pretty silly, but most of us have a heck of a lot more respect for them these days, especially when it comes to the diminutive scavengers. And we are all kicking ourselves for not hanging on to those little pieces of vinyl. Thankfully, we can all make offers on pristine AFA graded vinyl cape Jawas now. Sadly, they aren't $1.99 anymore.
