Jawa (pronounced /Jä'-wä/) were typically short rodent-like natives of Tatooine. They were passionate scavengers, seeking out technology for sale or trade in the deep deserts in their huge sandcrawler transports. A band of Jawas were responsible for locating C-3PO and R2-D2 and selling them to Luke Skywalker's uncle, Owen Lars. Another tribe of Jawas, led by Tteel Kkak, found Jabba the Hutt's rancor. They had a reputation for swindling, as they had a penchant for selling old equipment such as outdated faulty droids to moisture farmers. However, they were extremely passive beings, and hardly put up any resistance to colonists of their planet unlike other natives, like the Sand people, instead seeing foreigners as an excellent business opportunity.
When lit from below, the eyes of Jawa will glow.
The Jawa has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:

From the back of the 2016-card:
Few have been able to catch a glimpse beneath the hood of this cloaked off-road sand buggy, rumbling through the deserts of Tatooine like a Jawa scavenger. Its windshield is hooded for disguise, concealing two eerily glowing yellow eyes which seem to power the engine from within.
Twin ion blasters built from rummaged machinery extend from the rear exhaust pipes, blasting out energy to disrupt the electronics of surrounding droids while propelling the buggy to top speed.
