Final Thoughts: When I saw this design in the movie I thought of the Alien Queen. I really loved the look of this creature and THIS is one AWESOME toy. Next to the Rancor, I think I love this Beast the best. To have it to scale with the figures is a plus right from the start. There are plenty of articulation...3 on each leg, however the weight sometimes makes it hard to keep a position for more then a few seconds before it starts to droop and sink towards the floor. I am a bit sad that the mouth cannot stay opened. The spring keeps it snap shut. The slime intestines are a neat idea but I don't remember it oozing in the movie? If you have money for only 1 beast, skip the Reek and get the Acklay. Simply a must have.
