    Heh, I'm sure the Kaminoans were modeled on the "genaric" aliens.

    Don't suppose you've got a snap of the ones from 'Signs' as well?

    You may want to dig a picture up of the other Alien Grey from Close Encounters. The ones with the spindly arms and legs, since that looks more like the Kamino aliens then the short Alein Grey. But yeah, the Kamino aliens are just based on the typical Alien Greys that have been reported for years by people that claim to have been abducted by UFO's.

    Here's the spindly armed and legged Grey from CE3K. That's the ones that look most like the Kamino aliens. The little kid ones from the same movie just don't look as right. Though UFO abduction reports have stated that people do see both types.

    I haven't seen AI, so seeing the image of what the Kaminoans were based off of is a bit more different than I thought they would look like. Transluscent bodies with larger heads for the AI creatures wouldn't have tipped me off that the Kaminoans were a refit of that particular 3D model.

    It's been known for some time that the CG model for the Kaminoans is an alteration of the 'supermech' model from A.I., just as the Aiwha model is a rearrangement of the pteranodon model from the Jurassic Park films.


    Not that it's anything new. The SE introduction of the Ronto was an alteration of the Brachiosaur model.

    from "Mythmaking:behind the scenes of 'Attack of the Clones' "

    "The Kamino design was a very deliberate nod to the classic alien of Close Encounters," Lucas admitted. "Steven had done a lot of research on that film and really drew from descriptions by people who had supposedly seen them. We wanted to do homage to Steven, but even more to that alien everyone described. It was like: 'Oh, this is where those aliens come from! They come from Kamino!"
