Points of Interest:
  • Jar Jar was originally shown in plain clothes without the Christmas attire at San Diego Comic Con 2012. Before the show wrapped, both versions had been revealed. Gentle Giant made him the 2012 Holiday Gift Mini Bust as well as putting him in the Deluxe 2-pack with W. Wald sporting optional Christmas attire.
  • After being solicited as a light-up collectible, Gentle Giant announced that due to time constraints, the light-up feature along with the battery pack would not be included. However, fan outcry saw to it that they did in fact keep this fun feature and it was put back in place for both the gift and 2-pack Deluxe versions.
  • The bottom of both busts is silver in color making it different than the black color we typically see. This has become the standard on Holiday pieces over the years differentiating them from regular releases.
