This came out before LEGO's version of it.
They did not contact me about using my design at all. That
said, this version of the B'Omarr Monk is apparently an older and
simpler design; the prop was not used in Return of the Jedi,
but was rather replaced by the newer version. For the brain in a
jar I used a clear mini-fig head with a brain design on it (from
the Studios theme) and a crystal ball piece. The body is upside-down
to let the crystal ball hang. Thanks go to my mother for the idea
of using ninja katanas for legs.
This version of the B'Omarr Monk can be seen for a split second
in Return of the Jedi while C-3PO and R2-D2 walk through
the main hallway of Jabba the Hutt's Palace. It has more of an insect
look to it than the older version but retains the flipped thorax
design, legs, and suspended brain of the older version. The abdomen
uses black 2x2 radar dishes on all sides (aside from the bottom,
where it connects to the thorax).
