Well, I have'nt seen a Turn X in stock anywhere, really....people like that
design at least.
Also, another parrarel is that the design work is a lot more aesthetic and
art-deco than used and machine-like(At least in the film's Naboo designs).
I dunno if ridiculed is the word for Jar-Jar though-more like utterly
despised...
