BioWare and LucasArts are excited to announce that “The Party Jawa” has won our Fan Favorite voting contest. Over the past month, our Facebook Fans have had the opportunity to choose a favorite item to receive as a reward when Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ launches its new Free-to-Play option this Fall. Although it was hard to pick a favorite, The Party Jawa won by an overwhelming majority! The Party Jawa celebrates a player’s status as a veteran of the galaxy with a unique and fun animation. The Party Jawa will be rewarded to current or previous subscribers as of August 1 and who are active subscribers when the Free-to-Play option launches.

So then the question is when are they launching the free to play option?

Party Jawas are great and all, but personally, I'd really like to see new vanity items that are more...useful? New sets of moddable clothing, weapons, speeders, titles and such would be amazing.

Although I'm sure there will be plenty of people just dying to pop their Party Jawas /cringe at every opportunity, I would love to see some of the development time that's being diverted towards vanity items go into making things like this and this happen.

I would much rather be able to play as a Jawa. I have no use for a party jawa as I don't really get into role playing or hanging out in cantinas.

Although the VO would be easy--jawa gibberish for each player response--the companion romances may be awkward with a Jawa PC.

Party Jawa is something I'd use once and then put in my cargo hold, but it's fine for a free item.

Jawas don't really need to have a romance, anyway some jawas can speak basic. I would be willing to pay for a jawa character if they every make that available.

I am not surprised at all that the party jawa won, although I would have much rather gotten the throne or the carbonite. those are much more interesting to me. we already have a rhythmic augmentation droid. do we really need a party jawa too? Give us something to decorate our ships with instead of a random jawa-in-a-box.

EDIT: I also vote no to playing a jawa. that is just silly.

No to playing a Jawa... Just no..

As for the Party Jawa reward, I would have preferred something else personally as well.
