If you’re a Star Wars convention goer, it’s very likely you’ve met Roxy The Rancor and even had your picture taken with her.
Well, Roxy is about to get a buddy.
Roxy’s creators Rick Boehler and Erik Hollander are working on a Luggabeast from The Force Awakens that will debut at MegaCon in Orlando later this month before moving on to the Dallas FanExpo in June. Event Coordinator and part owner Matt Paisley also had this to say about the accuracy of the replica:
“This Luggabeast is as film accurate as we could get with the help of those ‘friends in high places.’” Paisley noted. “There aren’t a lot of good reference photos from toys or books, so that was key to getting things right. Pictures just don’t do this justice due to the sheer size and phenomenal detail that Rick and Erik put into it.”
The Luggabeast does need one more finishing touch; a name. Fans have a chance to vote on a name now through May 28th.
