"Learn about art, Captain..."
The Master Planner is submitting Star Wars
But that's okay, because the newest addition to my ever-popular Plushie Madness subgallery is the Grand Admiral Mitth'raw'nuruodo (but you can call him Thrawn for short
), the Big Bad of Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire
trilogy. The phenomenal success of those books are directly responsible for the metric shittonne of Star Wars Expanded Universe novels you can find at a bookstore near you.
If TVTropes.org published a dictionary and you opened it to the entry for Magnificent Bastard
it would have a picture of Thrawn for illustration. Because any fucker can kick ass when you've a lightsaber and the Force...when you can kick everyone's ass and nearly break the New Republic with no special abilities except a genius IQ and the ability to tell your opponent's personality and tactics just by studying art that they've drawn, and when the notoriously racist and sexist Empire breaks their "no aliens" rule to hire your blue ass, then
you're on the Master Planner's win list.
For more information, read Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire
, Dark Force Rising
, and The Last Command
, as well as Specter of the Past
and Vision of the Future
, the sequel duology, and Outbound Flight
, the prequel.

I remade this plushie after three years and I'm still
not entirely satisfied with the picture. But I did make a better ysalamir this time around! Oh and before you ask, an ysalamir is a creature who developed the ability to repel the Force as a defense mechanism against predators. Hey, when you have to work around Sith Lords and mad Jedi every day, you take precautions.
"Stands" approximately 13" tall. Materials for Thrawn include Loops and Threads Impeccable in clear blue; Tahki Yarns Cotton Classic in white, black; Plymouth 24K in gold; Cascade Yarns Pima Tencel in midnight; DMC embroidery floss; buttons; FolkArt and Americana acrylic paints. Materials for happy ysalamir include Bernat Satin in goldenrod, pipe cleaners, and safety eyes.
