That's a bummer, Ithorians are one of my favorite races in all of Star Wars, I always liked the look of them. I always liked the idea of an Ithorian Jedi Knight but I didn't loved the design for Roron Corobb. RIP.

Ron Cobb didn't just help design the USCSS Nostromo, he did design the ship, inside and out, as well as the Narcissus escape pod.

A pity, Lucas may have created Star Wars, but all these artists were the ones who shaped it and often didn't have the merit they deserve.

Ralph McQuarrie, Joe Johnston, Ron Cobb, John Dystra, Phil Tippett, Jon Berg just to name a few.

No, don't name them to me, mate, but to hordes of casuals and newcomer fans who have the false belief that absolutely everything came out of Lucas' head.

You're not the only other person on these boards, right?

It's like the people who give Stan Lee all of the credit and don't know who Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko are.

It's sad that cartoonist like Ron Cobb, Ralph McQuarrie  don't get the real spotlight durning their life, only after death they are revealed to be real  inspiration not only for past but also future,  I remember watching documentary on sequel trilogy which pretty much suggested that most ideas from first movie came from McQuarrie's unused art.
