    I think Join the Battle got his and Mon Mothma's heights swapped - he's listed as 1.67m, she's listed as 1.83m - but the accompanying pictures both show Padme as well, and he's nearly a head taller than Padme whereas Mon Mothma looks only a tiny bit taller. Padme is listed as 1.65.

    The main other example of problematic heights was for the Hutts - Jabba, Oruba, Arok and Marlo have human-level heights of 6 ft or so (Jabba's 6 ft 5, Oruba's 6 ft 8, Arok's 6 ft 10, Marlo's 7 ft 6) but several of the others (Gorga, Gardulla, Ziro,) all have much bigger heights listed despite them not towering over their fellows.

    Maybe height in those 3 cases (Ziro 12 ft 10, Gorga 11 ft 10, Gardulla 12 ft 2) should actually be length?

    Mama's 11 ft 10 is a bit more plausible for height - I recall her towering over Qui-Gon and Ziro when they met her.

    Hmm. Let me get back to NYC and look into that one. I have my suspicions but let me review the case.

    In case anyone's curious, I wrote a Substack thingy offering some notes on "The Guns of Kelrodo-Ai," which was just reprinted in the new Insider Fiction Collection.

    Hey @jasonfry do you have a copy of Art of Galaxy's Edge yet?

    I am stunned by what could have been in Galaxy's Edge. Lots of alternate ideas and concepts. Among them is an "Galactic Explorer's Shop" that probably ultimately got turned into Doc Ondar's collectors shop. But the concept art in the original form had much more content for explorers and cartographers including a giant galaxy map hologram above customers heads...

    Now that would have been something... missed opportunity I'd say!

    Oof. That's pretty cool. Still, if I know LFL/Disney, the "not yet" pile of ideas is a lot larger than the discard pile. So here's hoping!
