Star Wars The Black Series Jar Jar Binks

Yousa miss me? 

Whether you like him or hate him Jar Jar left a lasting impression. Personally I did not mind him. I enjoyed some of his antics. Jar Jar is a great looking figure. The head sculpt is good. There's a good amount of sculpted detail, especially for his ears and neck. His multi-tone skin colour was done very well. His eyes came out great too. I would have preferred if he had a different facial expression. He's quite an animated character after all and this fed-up and bored expression doesn't really suit him. Some additional heads would have been great. Maybe an extra silly face and a horrified expression. That would have been nice. They did a fantastic job for the skin pattern on his arms. You can make it out very clearly. There's good detail for his attire. The dark greyish brown tunic and pants are textured. I especially like the stitching down the side of his pants. The light brown vest and sash are separate pieces. They have a bit of shading on them which makes them look weathered.  

Some close-ups of his face.

Accessories. He comes with a personal energy shield, an electropole (spear like) which comes in two parts, and a atlatl with an attached booma. I had to look up the names. Do let me know if I made any mistake. The shield looks great. The edges of the shield are more tinted than the middle. There's nice sculpted detail on the atlatl. I would have liked if the booma was removable.  

Articulation. He's got a dumbbell joint upper neck, a dumbbell joint lower neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. With the two neck joints he's able to look up and down decently. And he's able to cock his head very well. The elbows bend a little more than ninety degrees. There's not much forward bend. He can bend backwards more. 

Comparison shots.

Great figure! I would have liked if he came with additional heads. Thanks for viewing!

An additional head would have been really nice but overall it looks like he turned out well. Where did you get this? I didn't think Jar Jar was even close to coming out! I'm quite excited to get him, though. I went from being a Jar Jar hater to....accepting him. The movies came out when I was in 9th grade and I now have a lot of nostalgia for Episode 1.

Cool figure. Can't stand the character but you can't like them all. I really like how the fan made redo was done. Made him and the Gungans more warriorlike and less of a goofball.

It's the character who's largely to blame for Darth Sidious' rise to power
