Hello folks. I recently signed up to Eurobricks. To start my time here I decided to take a few new and better pictures of my Rancor MOC. /Rob

Wow I really like this good job :thumbup: . I know also how hard it can be to build a rancor especially getting the shape down :blush: . Anyways great job again.

Oh wow, you did a great job.  I love the face, it's very movie accurate!

Is it as poseable as it looks?

That rancor is beautiful. For the trainer I woulld have used the mechanics body from the Indiana Jones Flying Wing set to make him look muscular but I still love this MOC. I hope to see more :classic:

If you remember in the move the trainer was not muscular at all, in fact he was kind of fat.

Great job, although it has a cartoon feel to it, it still definitely looks like a rancor. It actually bears quite a resemblance to the Domo mascot. Nice work!

I can't view Eurobricks without posting a comment on this MOC - the previous one was quite sculpey'ey' but still looked good.
This MOC looks even better (not for the aesthetics but because it's all TLG pieces) and I don't know why I haven't done something similar although maybe not as good) myself - lack of funds and brown pieces would play a part in not being able to build it for me.  I never knew how well the gripping pieces and the tooth pieces would suit each other as the top and bottom jaws but they worked perfectly, as with the circular pieces from the bottom of a gearstick.  Not only is the mififig scale roughly correct, but  so are the tiny details such as the brown 1x1 circular pieces on the arms.  I only thing I can fault with the MOC is the appearance of the red parts of the technic joints for the legs, which wouldn't attract attention if they were bley like the others.  Otherwise, a faultless MOC and you're very welcome to Eurobricks in my opinion roblin  :thumbup:

Wow, this is a great Rancor, and I believe it is one of the best Lego ones I have ever seen. It looks like everything fits together just perfectly to make it in rough minifig scale.

In that case I would suggest Patrick Star's torso.

Great work! This is one of thje best lego rancors I've ever seen I like how he can open and close his mouth. :classic: But his head looks to cute to be a rancor in fact I think his face looks a little bit more like a domo sorry. :laugh:

Great work! I really like how you used that piece for the eyes they look really good. I like how you used brown and tan instead of just one colour because that wouldve made it a bit bland but using two looks really great

Wow, what a great welcome to the board! Thank you all. I am not familliar with the domo character, Ill have to google it i guess. My rancor is very posable and my kids have had a great time playing with it. It can move the arms and hands and can grab things really well. The head can be moved and the mouth open. The legs, as you can see also have all the joints but due to the top-heavy nature of the rancor the feet mostly stay as they are in the picture.

/Robert.

Edit: lol i took a look at Domo and they DO have a striking similarity.
