Rathtar's and the Many Possibilities!

Now that we've looked at the Rathar's out of box and in hand,let's put them to  good use.Like I stated before,I wanted them to be generic alien creatures for my Marvel Universe ,however, Rathtar's are anything but generic.It feels like your holding a real ,live little life-form when   these guys are in hand.Lets check out some cool Rathtar/Marvel Universe figure combinations with   characters that I think make the most sense.

Lets begin with the most obvious.Mole Man Is known for rolling with a crew of  monsters and alien like ,subterranean creatures.While there are a few that are unique to Mole Man ,who says you can't throw a couple of these Rathtars into the background for an added effect.I think they're a match made in ...hell?

Doc Ock also makes alot of sense here.Mad scientist,science experiment involving an octopus gone wrong and suddenly Dr.Octavious has bodyguards.




Silver Surfer Is an alien life-form himself,so he Is certainly no stranger to encountering Rathar-like creatures while traversing outer space.




Rathtar's  could easily be  one of Dormammu's many demon lords.Dr.Strange would have his hands full with these two.


I could definitely see  an enraged Hulk going toe to tentacle with a couple of    ravaging  Rathtar! 



As of now,this will be my preferred pairing.I think I'll make It so that the Rathtar are actually mutants In their purest form.Unadulterated  mutant life-forms.Magneto raised them to be loyal attack dogs so to speak and he's going to sick them on the X-Men and anybody else who plans on getting In the way of his dream of one day eradicating the human race.Well,just those who oppose mutants. Subservient
humans will be enslaved and closely guarded by Rathtar ,when not being used as food for them to snack on ;) 

















Rathtar's are big figures.They will take up a significant amount of space on your 3 3/4 figure display but you can always pose figures in between and around the tentacles to make things fit.Notice,though,how I had to place Sabretooth,Mystique and Juggernaut towards the back.

    1. Thanks GI ;) They are little charmers aren't they?I just wish those tentacles would attach a little better than they do.
