With his three books looking behind the scenes of the original “Star Wars” trilogy, Lucasfilm editor Will McCrabb has become the master of rare of pictures and details from the classic films.

The latest picture from the set comes to us from McCrabb’s Twitter feed (via Badass Digest). The photo above is a look at the wampa from “Empire Strikes Back” as it would have appeared had Lucas decided to keep the creature in.
The shots with a full-body look at the creature were ultimately redone for the Special Editions, but it didn’t appear as big as the wampa we see here.
