Jar Jar Binks was a male Gungan from Naboo. He was exiled from his hometown by leader Boss Nass, after sinking Nass's heybibbler. Jar Jar was very clumsy, dimwitted, yet very friendly. He was saved from a droid MTT by Qui-Gon Jinn, thus forming a life debt. After Qui-Gon's death, he became Representative Binks and the first Gungan to have a role in the Galactic Senate. Jar Jar appeared to be a close friend of Padmé.
The original Jar Jar Binks minifigure was released in several Episode I-themed sets since 1999. These include 7115 Gungan Patrol, 7121 Naboo Swamp, 7159 Podracer Bucket, 7161 Gungan Sub, 7171 Mos Espa Podrace. The figure featured a unique head mold and a unique torso. In 2011, a new version of this minifigure was released with the 7929 Battle of Naboo Lego Star Wars set. It included a re-styled head mold and a re-styled torso.
