- "I have a camtono of Beskar waiting for you upon the delivery of the asset."
- ―"The Client", to "the Mandalorian"
The camtono was a cylindrical box consisting of a fixed frame, three movable panels hinged at the bottom and locked shut at the top, and a "lid" part. That lid boasted control buttons and a rotary cylindric piece featuring a handle. Buttons disengaged the locks, causing the side panels to fall open and thus granting access to the contents.
- "Mando, enjoy your rewards. Buy a camtono of spice."
- ―Greef Karga to "the Mandalorian"
A male human named Willrow Hood was seen transporting a camtono under his arm at multiple points in his life, including when Baron Administrator Lando Calrissian told the people of Cloud City to evacuate due to the Imperial threat.
In around 9 ABY, "the Client" hired the bounty hunter known as "the Mandalorian" to recover a child on the planet Arvala-7 in exchange for a camtono of beskar. Having accomplished the mission, the Mandalorian received the beskar and transported it to his tribe's covert, where he provided the contents inside to the Armorer to forge a full cuirass. Later, when the Mandalorian expressed doubts about the ethics of the Client, Greef Karga, head of the Bounty Hunters' Guild, suggested that he should forget about it and buy himself a camtono of spice.
Behind the scenesEdit
Wilrow Hood's camtono prop was a an unaltered ice-cream maker. This was noticed by fans, and the character apparently fleeing Cloud City clutching an ice-cream machine developed a humorous cult following.
