The Rancor has been unleashed as Regal Robot announces their upcoming Star Wars Prop Replica. This collectible is not for the faint of heart either as it is extremely limited to only 83 Pieces and will be priced at $2999.99. The 83 is to honor the monster's appearance in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi which debuted in 1983. This statue is a perfect replica as it was faithfully recreated from the exact laser scan of the original prop puppet used in the Star Wars film. To make things even more incredible, the Rancor prop will come with a hand-numbered plaque that is signed by the creatures creator and puppet performer, Phil Tippett. This is a true honor for Regal Robot to have him and for us fans to be able to actually acquire one of these amazing pieces that celebrate Star Wars history.
The Rancor is a remarkable creature and one of the deadliest we have seen in the films. This iconic beast is ultimately killed by Luke Skywalker after his dealings with Jabba the Hutt and that seven captivated audiences.

This is one collectible that fans will not want to miss out on and if you have the money, pre-orders are set to go live October 5th, 2020 and fans will find them here.

"When Star Wars: Return of the Jedi debuted and the Rancor first appeared in that cave below the throne room of Jabba the Hutt™, I was mesmerized! The classic, behind-the-scenes documentaries showcasing the work of Phil Tippett's creature shop during the production of that 1983 film were a big part of what led me to a life in the world of FX and movie monsters. I'm so excited to have Phil as a part of this run and signing plaques for the collectors bringing this unique replica home. Our goal is for our static resin replica to be the closest recreation of that original puppet possible, with laser-scanned details and layered hand paint like the prop, capturing the feel and style of classic movie effects work.
