What species is Ellors Madack, is it pronounced, Jaw-roe, or Jaw-ros? I hope you know what I mean.

Based on the pronunciation of Ellors and Baniss, I say it:

Dur, like mur-DER.

os, like cl-OSE.

I didn't know that about the encyclopedia, but I do remember CollectStarWars attributing Ellor's high sales to collectors buying extras to customize a Baniss Keeg.

But they forget that the same figure can be used (un-modified) for Leslomy Tacema in Jabba's palace, and with some paint, you can have Probos and Bringe from Anchorhead [for all of you who want to keep Zutton where he belongs].


So I doubt we'll see a Baniss soon, especially considering the similarities in the masks [photo compliments of Red 6's Comprehensive Star Wars Encyclopedia].

Wow! Porkins was a mask! That explains his shoddy flying! ;)

I think it's pronounced "doo-rose", not "duro".

I also think this figure sells well because it's a good figure - good sculpting, good paint, good pose, and good weapon.

Strange how they look so much like Nute & Runes species.

According to, I believe it was either the Insider or the official site. The Duros are a distantly related species to the Neimodians. I am trying to find the actual information on the official site, but I hate their interface. :( Found it, here is what the official Site has to say:

Though they call Neimoidia home, Neimoidians can trace their ancestry to the ancient Duros spacefaring culture. The two share a striking similarity in appearance, but their personalities could not be more distant. While the Duros are a gregarious, expressive and adventurous lot, the Neimiodians seal themselves away from others, preferring to let droids do their talking.

MTFBWY and HH!!
