3. The Jar Jar Binks Mini-figure in Episode One –
The Character – He was originally banished from his homeland on the planet Naboo for his cluminess, but the goofy Gungan later was the first Gungan to represent his people in the Galactic Senate, first serving as a Junior Representative along with Senator Padme Amidala, and then, after her death, serving as full Senator.
In LEGO – Jar Jar Binks was the first LEGO Mini-figure ever to have a unique sculpted head. He appeared in five Episode One sets in 1999-2000 and came back in 2011 with a slightly different look, his head now has printing on it.
The printed version:
- The new Jar Jar Binks can be assembled in 3 pieces.
- He has flat eyes, painted yellow with black pupils.
- He has mottled skin good for camouflage.
- There are only two variations of Jar Jar Binks so far.
