It’s time for the first EVER Star Wars™: The Black Series HasLab creation: Rancor!

If this campaign is successfully backed, the offering will include:

Star Wars™: The Black Series Rancor™ Figure with an arm span of 42 inches (106.68 cm) from talon to talon, a height of 17.5 inches (44.45 cm), and the ability to extend to be 27 inches tall (68.58 cm) with arms raised up. This figure has over 45 points of articulation, more than The Black Series 29-point standard!

We really appreciate all the feedback we’ve received in an effort to make the HasLab Rancor the best possible dream product. With that, we realize we can't leave the most dangerous creature, the rancor, roaming the galaxy without its keeper. We will be adding a fully newly-tooled Star Wars: The Black Series Malakili figure to the base offering, funding at 9K units. Uncarded and ready for action, Malakili comes with his unique gaffi stick inspired by Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. This figure is in active development, and we will share renders as part of our backer updates if the project successfully moves into production.

This final additional figure can ONLY be added if we hit our target threshold of 9K backers before the campaign deadline (December 6, 2021). Thank you for your help in shaping this product in real time!

Help us defeat the Rancor – you’re our only hope!

Star Wars™: The Black Series HasLab Is Finally Here

For the first time ever, The Black Series has arrived at HasLab. After the success of other iconic Star Wars projects like The Vintage Collection’s Razor Crest™ and the outpouring of fan requests, we knew without a doubt The Black Series needed to be represented. Wait no longer, fans and collectors; we’re here with something epic. A towering figure with a formidable arm span, measuring 42 inches (106.68 cm) from talon to talon. A figure that evokes the nostalgia of another era. A figure that embodies the thrill of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™. The Rancor™.

Classic Film, Iconic Creature

A terrifying and mesmerizing creature, the Rancor is an unforgettable part of the Star Wars galaxy. When the team began to think about The Black Series HasLab project, the Rancor was the undisputed winner. It’s even one of our designer’s favorite movie monsters of ALL TIME. How could it not be?! A ferocious and formidable opponent whose commanding size and brute force strength is enough to rattle even the most powerful Jedi™. And HasLab is the only way to bring the Rancor to you. Here we have the freedom to breathe new life into classic figures in an extraordinary out-of-the-box way, creating legendary sculpts to add to your collection. Join us by funding this larger-than-life monster now!

This crowdfunded project will run from October 22nd to December 6th. If successful, the project will begin shipping in Spring 2023.

Get to Know the Rancor

  • The largest figure ever made by Star Wars: The Black Series. It dwarfs our standard 6-inch-scale figures… as it should.
  • At 42 inches (106.68 cm) long, the Rancor’s arm span makes it wider than it is tall, helping recreate his formidable, inescapable presence.
  • Its 12.8 inches (32.512 cm) deep (from nose to the back of the figure) and 12 inches (30.48 cm) wide body (from shoulder to shoulder) gives the Rancor substance and durability.
  • Standing at 17.5 inches (44.45 cm) tall, the Rancor can stretch its arms up to give it an even more massive height of 27 inches (68.58 cm), allowing fans to replicate any of the fearsome roaring poses seen in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
  • Over 45 points of articulation, the most ever done in The Black Series, all the way down to its talons. This gives the Rancor the ability to grab The Black Series 6-inch-scale figures in its talons and bring them up to its articulated jaw for a “snack”. After which, you may want to adjust the piece of drool by its mouth.
  • The Black Series largest figure to ever have Butterfly joints, which allow the Rancor to be posed in just about any of the positions you’ve seen in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. They also let the Rancor cross its arms in front of its chest and outstretch them on either side of its body, increasing the menacing display possibilities.
  • We’ve created a new standard in shoulder pad articulation and applied it to the Rancor for the most premium, top-of-the-line figure possible from The Black Series. The Rancor’s shoulder pads allow it to maintain its iconic monstrous aesthetic without inhibiting its movement.
  • Above and beyond the high-quality sculpt and precise detail work you’ve come to know and love from The Black Series.
  • The Black Series most decorated figure in history with over 900 deco ops!
  • Entertainment-inspired details, including the broken shackle and chain on its right wrist. The designers had the privilege of seeing the original prop used in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi up close and in person, so they were able to bring every detail they could to life.
  • The nostalgia-evoking scene recreation possibilities are nearly endless!

Tier #1: 11,000 Backers Needed

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!

Tier #2: 13,500 Backers Needed

With this unlock, you will expand the galaxy of scene recreation possibilities. Build your very own movie-inspired display with a variety of highly detailed bone accessory pieces inspired by the Rancor’s prey in Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi. This includes the exact type of bones Luke Skywalker used to bring the Rancor to its knees in defeat – a human skull and femur bone. We’ve also included a variety of skulls from different species – a Tauntaun™ skull, a Gamorrean Guard skull, a human skull, a male Twi’lek skull, and a female Twi’lek skull – as well as several ribcages. When you’re not using these for maximum scene recreation, they can be displayed in a base that resembles the desert soil of Tatooine. You will also receive a Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Rancor dungeon scene-inspired cardboard background that has all your favorite details from that iconic scene, like the Rancor pit door, the trap door, the grating in the ceiling, and even the door Luke attempts to escape through.

Tier #3: 16,000 Backers Needed

This Kowakian™ monkey-lizard may be small in stature, but its presence is certainly large. In this unlock, The Black Series 6-inch-scale Salacious B. Crumb does not go unnoticed, even on its mini Kenner-inspired cardback. The team drew inspiration for this one from The Vintage Collection’s 2011 San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Salacious B. Crumb figure. Now we’re bringing it to an even more special level by putting it on a cardback celebrating the spirit of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. You can’t find Salacious B. Crumb on a mini cardback anywhere else in the galaxy except here at HasLab.

Tier #4: 19,000 Backers Needed

Brand new tooled Jedi Knight, Luke Skywalker, gets a fresh look in this unlock. For the first time in 8 years, this specific Luke Skywalker figure will have a newly sculpted photoreal design. A truly epic addition to any display or collection, and an iconic addition to your Rancor display. Without Luke Skywalker’s death-defying encounter, how would we know the ferocity of the Rancor??? Hopefully we won’t have to find out. Luke comes with a removable soft goods cloak, a blaster, and, of course, a lightsaber. To complete this galactic figure, we’ve put Luke on a classic Power of the Force cardback with a Special Collectors Coin.

Help us defeat the Rancor – you’re our only hope!
