Star Wars Rancor Shows up at Comic-Con

San Diego Comic-Con was the place to be this year as it is every year. But this time, there was a little something extra for fans of giant monsters. Tested enlisted the help of movie effects artist Frank Ippolito to create a scary real-life version of the Rancor beast from Return of the Jedi.

In the video clip below, Tested editor Norman Chan goes over the impressive 3-1/2 week build process that Ippolito and his team went through to make the Rancor a reality.

Frank has also created realistic costumes portraying Admiral Ackbar, Zoidberg, and Professor Farnsworth. This one is far more menacing as he gets into the Rancor costume and makes his way through San Diego. I know I wouldn’t want to meet this guy in a dark pit.

The detail on this costume is just amazing.
