And then have eggs about hatch a face hugger, he gets his lightSaber out just in time to cut a face hugger in half.

Yes, but you can’t see it under all that fur.

I would look at the puppet and try and get as close to that as possible, like matting the fur down and making it look frozen (hairspray maybe) in some areas.

It is just a movie, maybe we all are taking this a little too serious, I think he did an outstanding job with everything he’s done so far.

It would be cool to see somebody complete a suit for a 8 foot man with 12 inch heel shoes, that would make him 9 feet tall. Get a few fans with some Hoth Rebel clothing and gear, and grab a camera and shoot something with the Wampa chasing them. All you do is add the special effects, some NEW shots of C-3PO and R2-D2, all you need are their costumes, as well as snowtroopers, stormtroopers and Vader.

Then, you can create something that was realized, but ultimately discarded due to it looking too fake, budget restraints and poor animation technology. You have the head of the Wampa now. Somebody make a fan film. I would do it myself, but, as we all know, it costs money, lots of money. I do know how I would shoot the film, and I would make the Wampa scary as hell too.

I’m sorry, but I would love to see a new scene with the Wampa. I know it will never happen, but, I get excited about this kind of thing. I know it can be done. This would be awesome to see.

I can do the voices of C-3PO, Old Ben Kenobi, the Emperor, and Yoda.

I do not get it, I only see one tusk in these photos. Because the bottom photo is flipped.

^ I have been thinking about this design of the hand puppet a bit yesterday and this morning and I think what you can take away from it is that the Tusks or horns are not a prominent feature. But that also makes very little sense because if an animal grows either tusks or horns they are generally very noticeable as seen in elephants, rhino, rams, goats, deer and pigs.

Not only this but a horn or a tusk also has very obvious uses for either scooping and stabbing or butting and ramming.

So I think it looks like they tried to hide that feature under the fur somewhat on the Hand puppet but i just thought if you were going to give the Wampa Horns or Rams that made sense they would have to be quite a prominent feature to make sense.

So I just thought what shape makes sense and based off the old Mcquarrie painting I think his Horns shape and placement made the most sense.

Excuse the rough job here it is just for the purpose of illustrating the Mcquarrie Horn Placement.

The other thing I noticed is that another feature that makes the Hand puppet so appealing is that the shoulders start half way up it’s head. and it has like a bit of a hunch or hunched back.

Rondan, it looks like both horns are visible in that top behind-the-scnens pic to me - with the tip of the ‘broken-ended’ one just visible on the left of that pic.

As far as I’m aware, the bottom pic (which is ‘flipped’ compared to the way it looks in the top pic) was taken when the wampa puppet was on public display somewhere, sometime after the movie was completed. And somewhere along the line, the hair on the puppet ended up re-arranged somewhat, and ended up covering one of the horns completely in this pic.


@ Ronster - Gotta say that I was never partial to the look of McQuarrie’s wampa design, nor the curvature of it’s horns in that particular concept. I much prefer the horns to be angled more in the style of this myself -

the tips of the horns should be facing forward absolutely. there is no point having a pointy end unless you can use it to stab or gouge. Not pointing towards his own mouth like in the McQuarrie painting. But off away from the mouth so as not to get in the way while eating.

I am going to buy the Wampa head out of educational purposes with my wife.

But I still have several queries that your latest clip throws up -

  1. Before you film it, will you be trying to brush the hair on your version’s head in a manner similar to the tousled, mussed-up look of the original one? - I know it can’t be exact, but the original puppet looked excellent in that regard.

  2. And are you still intending to heavily coat the hair with ‘icicles’ like the original has? - that’s one of the best details about that original puppet, I reckon.

  3. And are you going to ‘dirty down’/add a little ‘dried blood’ under it’s bottom lip to your version, as seen in the top 2 shots above? - again, I think that’s a nice additional detail there.

All the detailing, like the “dirtying up”, the added ice and the styling of the fur will be done shortly before filming commences. The reason for this is that this head will end up being handled quite a lot while i finish the costume and this type of work could easily get spoilt in the process.

I do agree that some of the added shots in the SE are too much “in your face”.

You’ve waited 9 years, surely you can wait a little longer.

I do believe that the one SE shot that should be left in is the shot after it’s arm gets cut off.

That’s the point where it goes beyond “LOOK, THE WAMPA!” to some kind of parody.

“YOU DIDN’T REALIZE THAT IF YOU CUT AN ARM OFF A WAMPA IT WOULD ONLY HAVE ONE ARM!”
