Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Since I’m leaving on a jet plane for many, many, many hours on my unexpected journey down New Zealand way this evening it’s possible I will be late with the next BTS pic, so I’m giving you two for the price of one today. Consider it payment in full and a down payment for tomorrow.
First up is Nick Castle goofing off as the Shape in John Carpenter’s Halloween. Apparently Michael Myers likes Dr. Pepper. Who knew?!?
I’ve been sent this particular image a few times, but I can’t remember who sent it first, so a big thank you to all the readers who sent this along.
I’m in a puppety kind of mood, so here’s Phil Tippett working on the Rancor from Return of the Jedi! Still one of my favorite post-Harryhausen stop motion creatures. I loved this guy so much and actually shed a tear along with his owner when that bastard Skywalker put him down.
Someone get me a Kleenex…
Thanks to Richard Hess for sending this one along! Click to embiggen!

The bell tolls for tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic!
