Week 9 – and we are HALF WAY THERE with the blocks this week!!!!! This week I will be sharing a chart that gives the colors of the lightsabers and what they mean. Then it is entirely up to you to choose the correct colors for your join and border according to which color speaks to your inner Force.
Skin: Orange and White
• as a military commander and politician, Jar Jar Binks played a key role in the Invasion of Naboo and the Clone Wars that eventually ended in the fall of the Galactic Republic and the rise of the Galactic Empire. Once an outcast from Gungan society due to his constant clumsy behavior, he regained favor with his people by helping secure an alliance between the Gungan Rugor Nass and Queen Padmé Amidala of Naboo, which was an alliance vital in ending the Trade Federation‘s invasion of their shared homeworld. In the years that followed, Binks was to become a Junior Representative for his people in the Galactic Senate, serving alongside Amidala once she became the planet’s senator.
“You know, I find that Jar Jar creature to be a little odd.“
• In addition to their ability to fly, Toydarians were physically defined by their long snouts and webbed feet, and could resist mental manipulation from the Force. During the Clone Wars, the Toydarians were ruled by King Katuunko. The Toydarians were, for a time, neutral during the Clone Wars, before eventually siding with the Galactic Republic.
• was a male Toydarian junk dealer/human trafficker, who owned a shop in Mos Espa, Tatooine. He was the owner of Shmi Skywalker as well as her son, Anakin Skywalker, the young boy who would grow up to become both a revered Jedi Knight and a feared Sith Lord known as Darth Vader.
“I’m a Toydarian! Mind tricks don’t work on me, only money.“
