Jar Jar Bricks

Jar Jar, by vitreolum, on Eurobricks

 

Ah, everybody’s favorite Star Wars character. Mesa could make muj jokes about him, but this creation by vitreolum demands some more respect. It’s actually one of the first LEGO recreations of the world’s most infamous gungan I’ve seen. Maybe it’s because he’s not very popular, or maybe it’s because he’s hard to build. Not for vitreolum, it seems. The head is well done, and already shows a bit of Jar Jar’s I-don’t-know-what-I’m-doing expression. And his ears are quite amazing. You’d think that once you’ve got that nailed down, you don’t have to pay attention to the rest of your creation because your character will be recognizable anyway. But on the other hand, the characteristic disproportionate limbs make up quite a bit part of the character as well, and the builder captured that, with those nice big hands in particular. Present it all on a base with interesting parts, and you’ve delivered yet another amazing MOC. Even if vitreolum states that this is only a reject from a bigger project… there’s always a bigger project. So take your chance of liking Jar Jar for this once, and head over to the topic.
