Thanks for the pics Sluggo. I hadn't seen the Tie Fighters before either, that was cool to see.
I looked everywhere (okay, not everywhere, I did a quick google search) for the E.T.s in AOTC and ROTS and have turned up nothing. Found whole articles about whether or not Homer Simpson is piloting a Clonetrooper transport in AOTC, but absolutely no mention of the friendly little, phone desiring extra terrestial in either of the later two prequels. Even found some tool on some random message board going on about how they are baby Ithorians (though he used the term, "Hammerheads" which is what E.T. from the movie E.T. actually is, according to him). It was about this time (approximately 5 minutes into my search that I decided for my sanitiy's sake that I'd better forget about it). You sure they are in the other two movies?
Hmm, this whole things brings me to another question, why aren't there any Ithorians in the prequels? Noteworthy Ithorians anyway, perhaps their are a few hidden off in the background that I forgot about or failed to notice, but why not any Ithorian Jedi or anything like that? There are all sorts of incredibly gay and far out there aliens filling up minor non-background roles in the prequels, why not a couple of Ithorians? They've got to be one of the cooler aliens from the OT. Seems we can't give Rodians near enough screen time, but where along the line didn't Ithorians make the cut? Also Quarren and Mon Calimari, they too are really cool aliens, why don't we see any of them? Instead we get the retarded looking squid head guy from The Men in Black all growed up and getting himself filleted by Palpatine in a record breaking time.
