AMT/ERTL Rancor Model Kit

March 27, 2010

This is a vinyl model kit released in 1998 by AMT/ERTL (who also did the Jabba’s Palace model kit). I’m MUCH more impressed with this kit than I was with the Jabba’s Palace one. The detail and sculpting on the rancor (sculpted by Jim Groman) is amazing. It really doesn’t suffer any loss of detail due to it being made of vinyl. I think the Gamorrean Guard looks slightly awkward in the Rancor’s hand, but it’s otherwise well done, too. This kit is much more difficult to find than the Jabba’s Palace one (there’s always multiples of that one on eBay, usually only going for a few dollars). I’m going to be painting this one up, although I don’t know how long that will take. I’ll probably add a base of some kind as well. (EDIT: Here is the painted version.)
