So This has probably been seen by most of you...

I hadn,t been so involved in Eurobricks much but frequent it often.
This one was built over a couple of months mainly due to bricklink
orders and family obligations.
There is a tentative CUUSOO

http://lego.cuusoo.c...deas/view/15138
or search Daiman...I don't know if I get this yet.

but I really think TLG would go for
the solid model on this one and why not, they do a great job of them.
It seems to me that there are some new builders at large within, along
with some tried and true sculpters who are redefining the mantle they
rest on.
The new hero sets are much more robust with the extra use of plates
and all of the new creatures from town to space have a lot of added
ZING to them.

This is a terrific model. Not entirely in TLG's wheelhouse, as perhaps demonstrated by their use of more clicky-hinges for recent monsters, but I have no doubt that this is a model they should branch out into, as it represents an iconic monster perfectly.

My good, this is nice :thumbup:. The legs look a little unfeasible compared to the rest of the build, but good job.

Nice work. :thumbup: I love the fact that this model captures all the organic curves and textures of the rancor, yet it seems very solid at its core. The short tail looks odd to me, but I'm interested to see where you go with that as you update this model for CUUSOO.

The best looking most playable Rancor I’ve seen! Very cool! Good luck on CUUSOO, I think the kids would love this set.  :thumbup:  :thumbup:

Nice job.It is a bit too big to fit in with the new jabbas palace but I would still buy one. :thumbup:

I agree with BD's comment about the tail, I don't know if fixing it will make the whole of the body less boxy (but possibly less sturdy).

But quibbles, quibbles, this is an amazing model. I have hoped that Lego would give us a brick-built Rancor and your model proves how great it can look.  :thumbup:

Thanks for the feedback folks and I am in agreement with those of you that commented on the legs.
A little bit of a let down but I was excited to finish something and running out of Brown...again
and couldnt wait another two weeks for bricklink.
I am currently in redign mode for the whole lower half now that I have it out of my system.

Thanks again.

Very nice. I love the textured pieces on the arm. It makes it much more realistic. The functionality is a plies too.

It would be interesting if Lego would release one like this. It would be so cool. :classic:

Hey I saw this on Cuusoo and voted for it. I think It would be awesome if Lego made this.

Ha! thanks folks it's a shame that this one is in bits around my living area as I work on refining the LXF file.
Not to worry it will live again and with new pics.

Hah, that's awesome Daiman!  Great 3D effect!

I've been supporting this on CUUSOO ever since I first saw it--I'd definitely like to see one of these bad boys as an official set. :wink:

May be slightly depressed due to learning that Shortpacked! is ending in a year. :,-(

Love it!

Now what I wanna see is the Rancor slowly devouring that helpless green skinned slave girl (Oola) now that she has a minifig. We don't even get to see that in the movie!
