Hello I'm just requesting Basilisik pictures, because I can't seem to find them anywhere else I search for them. Does anyone have any pictures of the Mandalorian Basilisk? (The dropship you use to land in Isis with.) Thanks ahead of time.

It's "Iziz" and try the Wookieepedia: starwars.wikicities.com

Isn't the model they used in TSL just a pawned design from the "Shadows of the Empire" game? I seem to recall something like that it's a carbon-copy of one of Xizor's (lead villain) generic battle ships or something...

Yes it's on wikicities, the main page feature today made me cry when i read the end of the article on Admiral Ackbar...

"Age and illness, however, prevented Ackbar from aiding during the Yuuzhan Vong War, save for a morale boosting effort at the Battle of Ebaq 9. Shortly before the liberation of Coruscant, Ackbar passed on."

That really hit me.

You can read their wiki article here (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Basilisk_war_droid).

Here's one of the pictures they use. There other is one taken from the game.

Sort of. While it greatly resembles Xizor's ship, the likeness isn't a mistake: Xizor's ship is manufactured by MandalMotors, which has obvious mandalorian affiliations. So historically it's accurate, though a little before it's time, maybe. We can't really tell.

Since there's a big difference between the "Exar Kun" mandalorians and the Neo-Crusader mandalorians, it isn't all that unlikely that the design of the basilisik would change from its original, more impressive form. I guess.
