The Rathtar, Wampa and Probe droid are all solid pieces.  I'll probably buy at least 2 of each.

I've seen a lot of complaints about the Rathtar's legs falling off, and I think they are a bit overblown.  I purchased three yesterday, and I've not had any real trouble.

I equate the legs to the landing gear on the BMF Falcon.  They have to go in the correct space.  The legs on the Rathtar are lettered...althoguh really hard to read.  Put them in the correct space and they do ok.

People have to sorta do the twist with em a good 5/10 times. Ack and forth.  They fit fine.  Anyone complaining isn't trying hard enough.  I will say I think the assembly required on this is  a bit beyond a kid.  Apparently adults too. :P

Haven't had any trouble with the one I have assembled so far. Have a 2nd one waiting to open, I'm hoping it's the same for that one as it was the first.

I saw a video of a guy complaining that it was (a) hard to get the legs in place and (b) that the legs kept falling off - I agree with Jesse, I just think he wasn't trying hard enough.

I continue to be amazed watching the price of the Rathtar drop at Amazon.  Every few days, it drops a few pennies more... down to just $4.07 now.  Poor Rathtar. :(

Really hope that Wampa/Hoth Luke sets makes it out someday, but with so many wave 1 cases (2x Rathtar/1x Probe Droid) rotting and Rathtar not even selling out at 75% off?  Oof. Not good for the future beasts chances...

Not good at all.

As cool as the Rathtar set is, I don't understand the reasoning behind doubling up on what essentially is an obscure beast and an obscure character. I give Hasbro all the credit in the world for even taking a shot at this, but I would have favored the Probe Droid set in the mix. Not that the Droid sells any better, honestly. I don't know. Maybe things have changed. I hope we see the Wampa set, and others. A Fathier would have been neat, but I'm guessing that is unlikely now.

It is kinda fascinating and Iím glad I waited to get a 2nd one.  Itís a good toy!  Coulda been better with bendy arm tentacles but still not a bad toy.  Bala teek on the other hand?  Not so hot.

While it might spell trouble for them to get marked down that far, I've wanted three this whole time and couldn't justify $60 worth of them... so this works for me.  I just ordered 2 more.

If anyone needs a Bala Tik PM me.

Too much. I'll wait until they get to 99 cents store.

Actually, add-on item...i.e. a freaking hassle. Maybe not, I don't feel like breaking my pseudo-resolution by ordering $30 worth of anything.

I had to order another at that price as well, probably should have gotten two to have the set of three. Hard to pass up that good of a deal. Tacked on a couple basic figures like Hux for $4 (hadn't picked him up yet), and another Rose for $2 and change because why not. Actually a very well done figure, I think the sculpt might be better than the BS one actually.

So I guess we are getting a Thala-Siren in vintage packaging.

Scored both the Rathtar and Probe Droid sets from Wally today for $5 each. There are a significant amount of Rathtars left.
