Cosplay we Love: Ginormous The Force Awakens' Grummgar

Grummgar is one of those cool background characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens that you wish you could sit down and have a weird sci-fi cocktail with, if he didn't try and pound you into galactic jelly.  Last seen on screen lounging in Maz Kanata's castle with the wily assassin and First Order informant Bazine Netal, the bulky mercenary has the calm demeanor of someone quite confident in their own leathery skin.

Here's an amazing 9-foot replica of the practical effects-created Grummgar, complete with his tagalong bounty hunter portrayed by model Valentina L’Abbate  The beastly behemoth was created by Julian Checkley of Order 66 Creatures & Effects in Galway, Ireland, and was the cosplay contest winner at this summer's Star Wars Celebration Europe.  

These impressive studio shots come from Kamil Krawczak and truly re-create the dangerous pair from The Force Awakens.  Have a look and check out the Star Wars Celebration Cosplay Contest video below, with Grummgar's win starting at 6:55.  Anyone game for a Star Wars spinoff comic for this duo?
