The Nexu is a cat-like creature with two sets of black eyes, sharp claws, and quills on its back. Though a full-grown Nexu can be close to 15 feet long, the Nexu available at Creatre Stall is small. Perhaps it’s a baby.

The felines have sand-colored fur with black stripes. They have sharp teeth in wide black mouths.

Nexu are native to the planet Cholganna but can also be found on Zhanox, Vodran, and Saleucami. Their first appearance in the “Star Wars” franchise was in “Episode II — Attack of the Clones,” when Poggle the Lesser tried to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala with one of the felines.

A Nexu also appeared in “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” episode “Cut and Run.” One of the creatures attacked the young clone Omega but was fought off. Nexu have appeared or been mentioned in several other “Star Wars” media including the “Bounty Hunters” comics.

The Nexu toy is interactive. Petting its head activates sound effects. Pressing its sides opens its mouth and activates different sounds. Its legs and tails also articulate.
