Review - Rathtar miniature creature from Hasbro

The 12 tentacles come in a separate bag, and you need to attach them to the main body.

The problem with the v1 (2017) version was that it was almost impossible to attach them to the body, because the pegs do not fit the holes, and even if you force them in place, the flexible material will push them out. With the v2 (2018) it is supposedly solved - you can attach them, they just won't stay in place without adding some glue.

The main body is ca. 10 cm (4 inch) long. The tentacles make it bigger. The body with tentacles stand 10 cm high, while the body is ca. 5 cm high. This means that the 1,7 meters high creature it's about half the size an 1/18 scale model should be. At 5 cm it's closer to 1/34 scale (1:35 is the closest gaming scale). They look twice their normal size compared to Star Wars: Legion range models.
