Release the beast! The Star Wars Hasbro team officially launched its 3rd HasLab project today during Hasbro Pulse Con – The Black Series Rancor. This figure is the largest one ever created standing at 17.5″ tall and has a wingspan of 48″ from the tip of each claw. The team stressed the importance of details throughout their panel, letting fans know they not only worked directly with Lucasfilm to make the Rancor screen accurate, but they traveled to Lucasfilm to scan the original prop for all the exact specifications. How detailed is the paint job? Fans can expect an over 900 art deco count, which is 9 times more than a normal Black Series figure.
Want to add this Rancor to your collection? The Black Series Rancor HasLab is currently live on the Hasbro Pulse website. Fans interested in backing the project are looking at a price tag of $349.99. The campaign is currently accepting orders until December 6th at 11:59 PM EST and needs a total of 9,000 backers. As with previous HasLab projects there are stretch goals, and the first two are at 11,000 backers and 13,500 backers. At the time of this post, there are already over 1600 fans backing the project, so it looks like this HasLab is well on its way to be successful as the two previous campaigns with Jabba’s Sail Barge and the Razor Crest from The Mandalorian.
