No it isnt't Jar Jar Binks, even though it looks like him. One Jar Jar is quite enough for most people! This endearing fellow is Captain Tarpals, a lesser known character from the newer Star Wars films. Fans will love this figure of course, because he is not seen much and that always draws the collectors in. I like him because he an alien and the aliens are always far more interesting to look at because of their features.
Captain Tarpals comes presented on the older style packaging with a Darth Maul face in the background. Good packaging on the whole and the figure is separated from the com chip which comes bubble packed next to him.
The toy is about four to five inches in height and has been made from plastic. Like with all Hasbro figures, you can move the limbs. Tarpals can have his head twisted and you can also move the arms and legs. The best bit of the head, which is like an elephant crossed with a llama! The cute expression has been caught well as has the beige skin. He reminds me a little of Yak Face from Jabba's palace.
The costume on the figure is deeply layered and extremely well designed. I love the robes and he has a rough look about him, suggesting that he has been through many fierce battles. Subtle colours contrast nicely on the torso and he long fingers are shaped beautifully.
The toy is supplemented by a commtech chip, which is a neat addition, as there are several of these to collect with this toy line. The joints are all robust so you can give this to kids as a present and not worry about him breaking. A fine and fun figure all round, he retails for about three pounds.
