Rancor Monster Made From Paper Mache And Foam
I got this custom-made rancor on eBay for $3 — shockingly, nobody else bid on it ;). Supposedly it was presented by Billy Dee Williams to the winner of the first prize in the Illustration category at a collectors’ convention in Mexico, although I don’t have any more information than that. It’s about 10″ tall and is made from paper mache with pieces of foam sheet attached. It’s really quite well done considering that it’s completely made from scratch.
It was missing a few claws and one of the fingers broke off in the mail, so I fixed that with some new foam sheet and some hot glue. I think I’ll display him next to my Jabba the Hutt piñata, although there is a considerable size difference.
