More details have been revealed for the latest Star Wars HasLab project – The Black Series Rancor. First revealed in August, the Rancor HasLab officially launched last month during the Hasbro Pulse Con with many details including its $349.99 price tag and backing deadline of December 6th. So, what did the Hasbro Team have in store for today’s livestream? They revealed a look at the first model for the figure and the details for the first stretch goal for backing the project.
The team reiterated the massive size of this premium figure with a 17.5″ height and 42″ wingspan from claw to claw. It’s made to scale for 6″ Black Series figures, so fans will be able to pose the Rancor with figures and even place them in the Rancor’s mouth! This figure also features butterfly joints and over 9 times the amount of art deco seen on other figures in the Black Series line. Hasbro wanted to bring all the innovation from other figures into this premium one for HasLab, and this creature has a full range of motion for all your posing needs.
As for the first stretch goal, it was revealed that the first tier unlocked at 11,000 backers will be the Gamorrean Guard. It features special HasLab only packing and a collector’s coin. The figure itself has multiple weapons and fur detail.
A 6-inch-scale The Black Series Gamorrean Guard™ figure on a classic Kenner-inspired Power of the Force™ cardback with a special collectors coin to continue the tradition of celebrating the Kenner brand. This exclusive execution can only be found here, in this HasLab issue. Fans can recreate the iconic scene in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™, when the Gamorrean Guard unwittingly becomes the Rancor’s “lunch”.
Burly and brutish, the Gamorrean Guard was one of Jabba the Hutt’s™ favorite enforcers. Help us bring this character out of the shadows of the underworld and onto a nostalgic Kenner-inspired Power of the Force cardback with a Special Collectors Coin. An exclusive packaging execution that can only be found in this HasLab issue. Keep The Black Series Gamorrean Guard figure in pack as long as you’d like to proudly display on your shelf or remove it to recreate the terrifying moment when the Rancor feasted upon the Gamorrean Guard right before our eyes. Think of the possibilities!
There are three other planned stretch goals for this HasLab project, with Tier 2 unlocked at 13,500 backers. Fans can visit the Hasbro Pulse website to back the project (currently at 4,436 backers), and get all the details on what’s next for the Rancor.
