I like the Ithorian, but I like all Ithorians. Too bad Lucas didin't put them in the movie. Would have been awesome to see Ithorians kick some butt. I might have to go find that book and try one or a few of these myself. That stick looking rifle in the picture looks awesome. Also I don't think it is DS's fault that it looks short. The base figure IMO is too short to begin with, even know it's a great sculpt. I think the sculpt Hasbro did needs to be about a half inch taller. The mass of the ithorian is there, just not the heighth. Anyway, great custom DS.
