Geroge Lucas with 501st Legion member Matt Paisley and Pizzazz's Rick Bohler
Pizzazz Scenic created this full scale replica of the famous “RANCOR” beast from the Star Wars saga “Return of the Jedi” for the 501st. Legion (a charitable organization) and Star Wars fans everywhere.
Affectionately known as “Roxy,” the 700-pound, 17-foot-long creation was painstakingly sculpted from nearly 2,000 cubic feet of expanded polystyrene foam from Imperial Foam of Ormond Beach, FL. Her skin hard coat is from Flex-A-Rock TM Jax., FL.
A tremendous amount of time went into fabricating and scenically detailing the Rancor. The enormous size of the Rancor required careful, initial, planning with much consideration given to ease of onsite assembly, shipping and transportation issues.
Pizzazz Scenic is the first and only firm to fabricate a life sized “Rancor Beast”. Towering over 20ft tall when standing up, “Roxy” was the hit of the 2012 semiannual Star Wars Celebration held in Orlando. George Lucas personally met with our sculptors and autographed the monster.
Roxy now lives in the warehouse of Pizzazz Scenic and when coaxed, travels with the 501st. Legion to Star Wars events across the globe.
