Rathtars are dangerous tentacled predators known for their sophisticated techniques as pack hunters. These slimy horrors were responsible for the infamous Trillia Massacre - which has made them irresistible to decadent collectors seeking exotic pets for their menageries.
Released as part of Lucasfilm's Force Friday II international product release event, the Star Wars Universe Rathtar with Bala-Tik 3.75-inch set was released on September 01, 2017.
The Force Link 2.0 version of this set looks identical to the original release pictured above, but can quickly be identified by the Green Force Link logo which replaces the older release's blue logo. While still packaged under The Last Jedi header, Hasbro slightly altered the box art by adding a doomed gangster in the tentacles of the ferocious mouth monster, making it a more appealing updated reissue.
The Force Link 2.0 version of the Rathtar with Bala-Tik pictured below, was shipped in cases with the Wampa with Luke Skywalker and Enfys Nest's Swoop Bike set, with a street release slated for April 13, 2018 as part of the Solo: A Star Wars Story product roll out, however many retailers disregarded the warnings on the shipping boxes and released their inventory as early as a month before slated release.
