With Star Wars VII:The Force Awakens in theaters today, obviously a Star Wars monster is in order, so…

Monster-of-the-Week: …let’s give the nod to the Rancor Monster from 1983’s Return of the Jedi, or rather to the Kenner toy version marketed at the time…

This beast was my favorite thing about that movie—he always looked like my idea of Grendel from Beowulf, plus I love how after Luke Skywalker kills him, his keeper sobs. I remember really wanting this toy and so, being 21 years old, I bought it for one of my nephews, then seven. Handy thing, nephews.
