Minute 17 of Star Wars: The Jawas’ droid inventory is put on display.


Tricia Allen



  • Takes us from the Jawas picking out who will be sold at the market and ends with the introduction of Luke Skywalker himself.
  • Introduction of Luke Skywalker (we see him and hear his name multiple times).
  • Return of Pete the Jawa. He is assigned R2-D2.


  • The droids are sold at a market.
  • What's the deal with the giant gas pump looking droid? There is a lot of variety of droids and other things on offer.
  • Droids without action figures and Early Bird Certificate package (film came out in May 1977, but toys were not available until early the next year).
  • The height of Jawas - including one very tall Jawa who may be discriminated against for being so tall (i.e. Jawas may be 'heightist').

Meta Minute

  • 10:28 podcast episode length.
  • Cold-open: Pete's excited about this one (turns out to be due to the return of 'Pete the Jawa' - see above).
  • Movie toy merchandising and spoilers nowadays (as opposed to 1977).
  • Misplaced toy merchandising with the Prequels.
  • Star Wars drinking games in college.
  • Tricia has appeared in Star Wars fan films - various roles in the “I.M.P.S. The Relentless” web-series, Imperial military personnel stories. Tricia once passed out while filming and wearing the Stormtrooper armor; she was awakened by multiple Stormtroopers (fellow actors) checking that she was alright.
