This community build was the perfect chance for me to revisit a classic scene, but I didn't want to just build a V2 of my Minifig-scale Rancor, so I decide to go smaller!

As with all my builds, I try to present as accurate and detailed a model as possible.

I'll be uploading a complete gallery of pics to Mocpages tomorrow, although, most of the cool shots are here! :wink:

Please let me know what you think!

UPDATE!
Thanks to suggestions from fallenangel309 and Hollander, I redesigned and rebuilt the tail. I think it's much more accurate to the "real" thing now. Thanks, guys! :wink:

Clever use of the click hinge to represent the rancor's snout. :thumbup: The leg work is superb as well. I think the tail could be improved, though - as it is now it's rather board-like. Perhaps something along the lines of a cone?

Great work, as always! You still manage to surprise me every single time with your creations. And this one is no exception. The Rancor is awesome, I haven't seen any other ones in this scale before.  However, I agree with fallenangel that the tail might need some improvements, to make it even better.

Thanks!  Now that you say that, the tail is a bit thin.  I think a cone piece may be a bit thick, but I could definately add some more plates to fatten that part a bit.  Thanks for the feedback! :classic:

Thanks! I always aim to please. :laugh: I actually believe this is the very FIRST micro-scale Lego Rancor, as I couldn't find any others online.  Like I said in my last comment, I will work to fatten up the tail before I post this on Mocpages tomorrow. :wink:

Really fantastic Micro scale Rancor M<0><0<DSWIM. Why not set the Moodland scale Luke onto the Rancor eh that will teach it :grin:.

I think the scale effect on the back of the Rancor is becoming one of your specialties. You've nailed it here. Also love the hands. I think what the tail needs is a hinge, so it can be bent backwards.

Thanks, and thanks for blogging this! :sweet: I originally had the tail on a hinge, but, because it's the only thing keeping this guy from falling backwards, making it move seemed pointless.  I actually redesigned and rebuilt the tail last night to make it fatter and will add a pic sometime today. :classic:

Another excellent CB entry Mood! :thumbup: The Rancor is quite accurately done, and the micro-Luke with the bone is very cute! Though like what Mr Man said, it would be nice to see the Rancor picking up a fight with someone his own size in Moodland-scale Luke. :laugh:

Thanks!  Yes, the tail does keep him from falling over.  :hmpf:

Well, he's designed basically like a Moodland fig, so he's super-poseable, HOWEVER, because of the positioning of the legs, only the arms are truly moveable without him falling over. :laugh:

The tail is certainly improved, looks way more natural this way. You should also make a Moodland King Kong, and let it battle with the Micro-Mood Scale Rancor.  :laugh:

Hello!

A fantastic vignette! :classic: The Rancor is again spot-on! :sweet: I am just not sure the scale difference stands out enough because of the immense size of the Rancor. He could also easily grab the real minifigure. :classic:

Cheers,

Nice Rancor.  I really like it in this scale.  The legs look great, and I see you were able to use some of original Moodland techniques.  I also love that head.

Great job :thumbup:

Thanks!  Y'know, one of the biggest challenges, besides design and detail issues, was getting the scale right.  Depending on what model/photo you look at, the rancor appears to be several different sizes.  Now that I've looked at the build for a bit, I don't know if he actually COULD be considered minifig scale instead of micro. :sceptic:

Thanks!  If you stand this guy up next to one of my Moodland figs, he's pretty much the same size (and uses the same parts, mostly). :wink:

A stuuning MOC! The rancor looks fantastic!

Now I don't know if I am the only one but I think it looks pretty close to a minifig scale rancor. I would love to see a picture of it holding minifig Luke or a Gamorrean.
