I can understand some of the gripes that some players have. But I think this is a cool small reward and I hope that they continue future contest. I also hope that they continue to improve the game and publish content at a good pace.

I presonally like the Party Jawa, I voted for it. Now, I can dance, have my holographic dancer dance, have my rythm augment droid blare some beats, and have a Jawa throw it down on the dance floor too! Which is why I voted for it. I thought that it was the best out of the 3 options. The holographic rancor was the weakest in my opinion, still cool but not Party-Jawa-cool. The carbonite freeze would also have been awesome but only for a small gag effect, in my opinion.

well, since jawas are one of my fave species in sw, i appreciate this item. however, developers must work hard to keep the game running. new sets of lvl 50 armors with new bonuses would be much better instead of such weirdo stuff. current rakata, tionese and columi sets look exactly the same except for little colour differencies which makes us look like fancy clones of each other and it's awfully boring. why not adding more diversity into the game?

it would be nice to see more mandalorian items in game, like the blue armor on mandalorian NPCs or the neo-crusader armors from kotor 2.

Yeah, ok, but this particular item is a thank you to the existing players. Perhaps if they held a vote for a new vanity pet for new subscribers they wouldn't have gotten this kind of response.

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

To all people hating FB: Take a frelling chill pill, people on FB do not decide on anything like future content, but one single stupid thing that will be received by subscribers when F2P launches. You are all acting like FB people decided on what operations are going to be made etc... But I fully understand your reasons for not wanting FB account (some of them, some of you are acting like it is forcing you to put all your personal info there, all it needs is a mail account, and creating new mail account is question of 5 minutes max)

To all people hating Party Jawa: While I agree that there will be lots of that on fleet in days after the release of it, it will drop significantly after a week or two, just like every vanity item. Rancor holo would be just as much spammed as Jawa. As for carbonite, I think it was just something on your ship, not that you could turn random people into carbonite blocks.As for Sith throne, isn't that something planned for Cartel Shop?

To all people saying to "move people from vanity to operations": Game development does not work that way. People who create maps and scripts for Operations, planets, warzones, etc, are completely different people than those who create simple model of Jawa with balloons that activates one simple script. Creating Party Jawa takes about hour for designers and scripters to create.

That's the point. It would have been something utterly new- ship decor- instead of yet another pet-type thing.

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.

That's a good joke, but, why not add all 3 into the game and allow us, the players, to choose which one we want?
I mean, from the pictures of all 3, they are already able to be added in game.
