And the awesome MOCs continue. I really like the nose and the teeth, and the hands are uncannily similar to the movie :thumbup:

Another awesome creation AC, the overall bulky body build of this brick-built Rancor is very accurate, and quite effective use of those slope pieces to resemble the ridged forehead of the 'real' Rancor. Great work as always! (And it's just a matter of time before this gets blogged). :thumbup:

BTW, is there any chance you could take a photo of a minifig beside it? I'd be curious to see the relative height of this monster.

Nice job! The detail is nice, but the legs look a little bit too thin. Great job though!

Thats soo cool and realistic, and relly awesome 100% of the way, how poseable is it?  and to bad he can't open his mouth.

Just added in the description about where the design was derived from.

A minifig would be two studs below the knee and you'll eventually see more next time.  :wink:

Not if you look at it from the side views.

Posing is a bit of a problem as the head is too heavy and the click hinges don't hold at all. I might still do some mods in the future.

Beautiful job, ACPin. Only thing is that I think it almost looks like it should be a bit more hunched over.

Great work on this one. Like Brickdoctor said, though, I think it should be a bit hunched over aswell. But other than that, amazing work, looking forward to the next MOCs of yours..

When looking at the other pics I must say that the back is brilliantly done.

I love it! Especially the claws and the mouth... awesome, awesome, ACPin. You greatly pulled off a realistic-looking texture and somehow you managed to make it look extremely mean and dangerous. I'm very impressed!  :thumbup:

Is it the picture angle? The rancor looks like it is not hunched over, like in the movie or how I see rancors in Force Unleashed or CW.

otherwise great MOC.

That was my first thought as well.  It still is a fantastic MOC.  I love the mouth and the hands.  I always thought a good rancor would need to be done in a Bionicle Titan style, but you have proved me wrong.

Not the angle but posing problems.

The posing issues will be resolved the next time that it will make an appearance.  :wink:

Yes, there are but they don't get posted as they're rebuilt until I'm satisfied.  :wacko: The head on this alone took a couple of days before it was done.
