Jedi Binks?

I have started collecting The Clone Wars Pocket Models and just got a card titled "Jedi" Binks. Does any one know what this is a reference to, or who the character is?

Here is a picture:

I can't see the picture, so maybe it's pre-destined that we don't know.

Seriously, though, i've no idea. But I hope it's not what came into my head when I saw the thread title.

What do you mean you can't see the picture? Did you try to refresh? It is viewable to me.

The only thing I can think of is maybe it is a relative of Jar Jar's, and is to be the first known Gungan to be Force sensitive.

I tried to refresh, just the dreaded 'red x', i'm afraid. Although I did try to search google and it came up with nothing.

That's an interesting theory. Let's hope it's right, and not something... worse.

Ok, I saved the picture and uploaded it to my photobucket album! Can you see it?

Ah yes. Looking at the picture, maybe a gungan with delusions of grandeur? Especially with the quotation marks around "Jedi" like that, i'd say it's a gungan with reality issues.

Probably something that will feature on one of the episodes of the upcoming Clone Wars tv series. Jar jar will probably disguises himself as a Jedi to intimidate some Seps, at least that's one interpretation for the "Jedi" on quotes.

Quoted for absolutely, positively, undeniable truth. If there is a new (live-action, not this animated crap) Star Wars movie, and it has Jar Jar as a jedi in it, I'm throwing away all my Star Wars crap and living in the woods with Bigfoot.

You know how Bigfoot is actually a wookiee...

Plus, female twi'leks are 780790789789 times better than female wookiees.

I don't think it's a joke. I've read somewhere at TheForce.net that Binks disguises himself as a Jedi to rescue Padmé who has been captured by Nute Gunray in one of the upcoming Clone Wars Episodes. It's not 100% sure, but it seems likely. Pack your bags, guys, and give biggie a hug from me in the woods when you're there.

Why is this so popular a week after I posted it? Besides I said Live action (READ: NOT ANIMATED) movie. Still, I might just go live in the woods anyways. Bigfoot just invited me over for dinner.

It's quite common knowledge that Lucas announced that he won't be doing any more live-actions movies anymore. Of course, initially, his argument didn't include the "live action" part.
