When the new UCS Sandcrawler was unveiled I started to compare the new and old types of jawas. The comparison is actually of three minifigs since the new Sandcrawler comes with two different jawas where the old one only came with one type.
The old version of the the Lego jawa had less printing but it did come with a cape so exclusive the size is called "jawa size" on brick link. The torso is almost the same as the new jawas except for the straps are a little different and placed differently but the old jawas have no backprinting mainly because of the cape and Lego didn't do a lot of back printing back then. Next is the head which only has small bit of printing for the eyes. The old jawa is actually more accurate here. The eyes on the new jawa are HUGE, almost Clone Wars like which kind of surprised me when I first saw it. The old jawas have smaller dot eyes. When I saw the big difference in the eye size I had to check out the actual size from pictures of real jawas, so I looked it up. It turns out the smaller older eyes are more accurate.
I personally like the older jawas better for the exclusive cape and more accurate eyes, put down which one you like and why in the comments.
