Lot Details
A life-size Jar Jar promotional piece in support of the opening of "Star Wars: the Phantom Menace"
A full-scale molded rubber and hard plastic model of Jar Jar Binks in full costume on a pedestal base with plaques "Jar Jar / Star Wars - Episode I / the Phantom Menace." This is an extraordinary reproduction of the digital character and was made in extremely limited numbers as part of a Frito-Lay/Pepsi promotion to support the release of the film. Certain designated large retailers received a single figure from the film. Jar Jar was by far the largest, most elaborate, rarest and most expensive made. During the course of the promotion customers submitted entries which went into a drawing and one customer was later picked to win a prize, in this case Jar Jar. Information passed onto us indicates that the cost to the studio of manufacturing this piece was between $4,000 and $5,000. This really is a spectacular and very impressive article of Stars Wars memorabilia. Jar Jar stands 83 in. tall at the eyeballs and 36 in. wide at the base.
