TLJ 3.75" Class A Creature/Droid Assortment
« on: July 19, 2017, 03:49 PM »
Rumors of the return of the beast packs have been flowing for the past couple weeks, now early pics out of SDCC have confirmed them - first up, Rathtar and Bala-Tik from TFA:

Glad to see the return of creatures to the line.  And those Guavian Enforcers did need Bala Tik to round out the group.  But that figure also looks very much like it's 5 POA.  Perhaps the rumors of increased articulation have been exaggerated?

Nice.  Put me down for 3 Rathars.

Anyone need only Bala-Tik?

I love it! We just need one for the 6" line too!

Very cool.  Glad to see this.  Hopefully that means we've got a Luggabeast coming too.

I'd be up for Bala-Tik.

Bala Tik and what appears to be a scale Rathtar?  Poseable tentacles too perhaps!  I love it.  It's the toy the launch needed I think.  Some bitched about the Rathtars but I dug em.

When I saw them the first time, I thought that the Rathtar looked like a cross between a Madball and Audrey II from "Little Shop of Horrors".  But they really do grow on you!  And that scene on the Eravana is one of my favorites from TFA.  I'm glad to have this addition to the line.

Hmm, I kind of want this set, but I don't have any Guavians or Kanjiklub guys, mainly since they never showed up here, so Bala Tik would be kind of useless to me, moreso that it's 5POA. Guess I'll wait and see. Rathtar looks great though.

And now I don't have to buy that terrible Lego Rathtar set

That's one of those "buy it purely for the minifigs" sets we've been getting more and more of lately :-X

I like it. I hope there's a Luggabeast set in the future, but I doubt it.

I like the idea of a Luggabeast set... as long as it comes with someone other than Finn, Rey, or Zuvio. :P
