What can I say, the most cool monster in the star wars universe :lol: I never had it when I was a child. But I knew a kid who had one, he had most of the star wars toy that could be bought in denmark. Many years later in the early 00 I got my first Rancor. I will take some pictures of my little Rancor collection when I am done with this fucking flu :(

I love the Rancor, owned a few over the years and every time I sold one I replaced it soon after. This one has been with me for a while now and is going nowhere.

Never had one as a kid but picked up a green one in 92 and was sure it was a rare variant, until a local dealer showed me the brown in his armpits - good old discolouration :)

That one is still going strong too

Yeah mine’s a bit discolored and looks green in places. Haven’t really seen to many that are discolored.

Finally one I can contribute to! This is the favourite piece in my collection. Hope you guys don’t mind me showing it off.

It’s been shrink wrapped and in storage since 2006 (as you can see from the first picture). It was quite exciting (and nerve racking) getting it out again, wondering if it really was as good as I had remembered, and making sure no damage had befallen it in storage.

Love the Made in England and The Jolly Giant price stickers. Pretty stoked really. :D
