Given Roxy s popularity, her builders, Rick Bohler of Pizzazz Scenic Contractors, Inc, and Erik Hollander, have been discussing how to do some sort of followup.
They narrowed their selection down to three of the large animals: the Luggabeast, the Happabore and the Rathtar.
The team set about sketching the beast, working off of the film, and with some detailed references from some friends in high places along with the accurate dimensions of the original practical prop used on set.
This Luggabeast is as film accurate as we could get with the help of those friends in high places.
Even without its rider, the Luggabeast will be making its first appearance later this week: congoers attending MegaCon in Orlando, Fla. on May 26th will be able to see the prop, displayed along with its sister beast, Roxy.
