This is much larger than some stupid, useless Jawa with balloons, it's symptomatic of a larger problem that has been addressed ad nauseum but to go on would only encourage the trolls.

it's hard to react to "exciting" news like this without using profanity. I agree.

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.

Dang, I was really hoping that the carbonizer unit was going to make the cut.

Would have been awesome in-casing myself in a block of carbonite whenever I needed to make a joke or something goes horribly wrong in a pull.

I just had a terrible thought . . . if these work anything like the galactic party bomb (or, whatever that thing is that forces characters in the area to dance), I am avoiding the fleet like the plague! Ok, technically like something worse than the plague, since having my characters randomly breaking into a ridiculous dance would be even worse than having them retching and feeling ill and periodically exploding in a painful ball of oozy green death.

Well, it is nice to get a freebie, at least; it will surely be cute. And I usually park my 50's on Coruscant or Nar Shaddaa anyway.

I wonder how much lag these will cause. This'll probably make me laugh in-game, but yeah.

I'm one of the people who voted. At the time I submitted by vote there were but 3 options.

1. Rancor hologram.
2. Carbonite sculpture
3. Party Jawa

Now see, I'm willing to take the heat for my choice. I voted for the Jawa. Why? Because another usless hologram did not impress me, not one bit. Maybe I mis-read the carobite thing, but I didn't see anything suggesting I could turn myself into a block of carbonite, it appeared to be another junk item that might get stuck in my ship or something. That didn't impress me either.

Now, is a jawa impressive? Again, no, but the thought of a dancing, partying jawa did amuse me enough to get my vote.

Frankly, I wish the throne would have been an option, because it would be much more suitable to a Lord of the Sith to have a nice chair to kick back in, but it was never listed as a voting option for me. It was only one of the three things put in display to showcase the coming "Cartel Currency" items you may be able to acquire.

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.

The Throne was not a choice for the facebook thing. It was a choice of 3 - A Holo Rancor Statue, Carbonite thing and the Party Jawa

Good to know I am not the only one who thinks that there is more important stuff to do. Stuff like this is nice to add when things are going well. But with the current state of the game, adding fluffy stuff like this is just a way of saying ''instead of fixing your problems, people, we made this priti dancing Jawa''.
