Very good question that I don't know the answer to unfortunately. I do know ILM was supposed to do a self-contained sequence in the film that dealt with an inter-dimensional marketplace. That gun-toting alien might well be a part of that sequence.

As for the pale humanoid aliens, I assume those are Weta's as they do look a bit similar to the Navi at least animation-wise. Weta is the lead vendor too so I assume that is their work.

I love the really colorful landscapes at the first of the film with the colored rocks, etc.
