How do you store your Rancor?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So just got Jabba's Realm, assembled the Rancor and went to put it back in the box only to notice that it doesn't fit. I suppose I could look for room in the core box but frankly I don't see myself pulling out a Rancor anywhere else. You know like hey your on Hoth, here's a Rancor, don't question it....he's wearing mittens. Or you're in an Imperial base, guess what they were keeping in the closet...Rancor! 🤔

Ergo, Ideally I'd add the components I use all the time to the main box and keep expansion only components in the Jabbas realm box. Does anyone else do that, have you found a good way of keeping the Rancor partially assembled so that he'll come out quickly?

Rancor fits well in the core box.

Sigh, I'm afraid that's what's going to happen.

I've just got a system for Descent where things go back in their boxes so I don't have to bring a duffel bag to play. I'm hoping to do the same thing with Imperial Assault but Rancor don't fit. Maybe I can find a spinoff of totalnoobs suggestion and use cardboard to prop the boxtop up an inch...I'm so not shelling out $50 for a wood insert.

My daughter painted mine,

Ha!  My daughters "helped" me paint my wampas and a bit on the rancor...  I'm such a bad painter (not being humble, I really am) that it doesn't really matter if they stuff it up.  No worries!

I store mine in 3 pieces, upper body leg and base. Mine is fully painted as well.

I'm trying to picture that? But the only thing I had trouble getting off and on were the arms, so a dissassembly solution that doesn't involve them would be great!

If you sand the inserts' edges, the arms are much more removeable. They don't fall off but at least you can insert them all the way without showing a gap and the slide in - an - out easier.

I detach my rancor's arms and put them in a 3.5 -4 inch foam with my ATST and ATRT and Bantha (heads and rider come off the vehicles and bantha.
