CLASSIC IMAGE: WHAT'S YER POISON?!


Another of Rick Baker's workshop classic alien masks gets an airing, and the chance to grace Ackmena's Mos Eisley Cantina, in this posed image from the 1978 STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL.

If anyone knows the name of the creature on and off screen, please get in touch...

UPDATE 30/11/2012. Now identified as an Y'bith. Thank you!

The alien species is known as Y'bith, an offshoot of the Bith (like the cantina band)
