    MOTUC Trap-jaw Needs His Laser- Bow!

    I was thinking about this the other day and now I've decided to take it to the fans. Of all of the great arm attachment accessories that MOTUC Trap-jaw was given the one he used fairly frequently in the cartoon is still missing from his cache- his laser bolt chucking laser bow! Does anyone know of an enterprising fan who has perhaps casted or custom made his/her own version suitable for use with the MOTUC TJ or is it worthwhile bugging Mattel to make one eventually? I need this bow in a big way!

    Although it's no longer offered by Spy Monkey Creations, you may be able to get it from a fellow collector. If I were you, I'd post a WTB thread in the marketplace.
    Still remembers we paid excessive shipping on Battleground Teela. Is confident Matty will resolve the issue and make it right for us.

    I have the SpyMonkey one and have been using it as my display attachment ever since I got it. I believe He-Bro has one available in his Shapeways shop.

    Coming....Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Wanted....

    Wow, that's gorgeous! They come unpainted, right?

    EDIT: I just checked your Shapeways- thanks for the link. Awesome that the bow accessory comes singly, but I'm not much of a painter. Anyone willing to custom paint if I snag one?

    Shame spymonkey doesn't make them anymore, that was such a great set. Really glad I got one when I did.

    That looks great, can you recommend a blue paint to match?
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things arent absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I dont collect toys to be miserable. So Id rather think about the things that do excite me

    I have also had the Spymonkey one since release. It was just too perfect. I got two Trap Jaws toot sweet so one Trapjaw on Skeletor evil minions shelf and Kronis with a sabre sword and bow gun from spymonky on the keldor/random eternian vilian shelf.

    It's just so cherry. He-Bro's is very nice too, and since theirs isnt around anymore (so sadly) it's the best optiont. I couldnt be happier having the spymonkey one to go with Kronis as a gun forshadowing it's use as a trapjaw weapons (on the toon) yet giving Kronis a unique weapons (or set with that blade from the toon as well as his sword.)

    Bam.

    Agreed.

    Although I'd rather see a mini-comic TJ before a Filmation one.

    I would definitely prefer that. On the cartoon TJ didn't actually have a full robotic arm, just a robotic shoulder - his weapons plugged directly into his shoulder socket. As cool as the custom black versions of the crossbow, fly swatter, etc are, i'd love a Filmation accurate version of TJ with all of his weapons.

    But those things never fit right...

    This should have been in a weapons pack somewhere along the line; sadly, at this point, I don't know how good the chances are of seeing it included with someone else. There are a lot of Filmation artifacts that can be made, and I don't know how high this ranks with Mattel. Then again, letting them know there is a demand for it would be the one way to change that, right?

    This thread might as well become a Filmation Trap Jaw thread.

    For once I agree with Marzo. I think a Filmation Trap Jaw would be made far more attractive if he came with some of his most wanted Filmation attachments instead of the Kronis parts.

    I have the Spy Monkey bow, which is really cool, but I wouldn't mind an official version.

    Me too! Although it sounds like the weapons pak's are a thing of the past, I'd welcome the inclusion of a few assorted TJ weapons included with other figures.

    If I am not mistaken, weapons packs were dropped mainly to focus on getting as many figures as possible out for 2014 and 2015.

    I hope that if we get to a 2016 line up, they can be reinstated. It would be a great way to get accessories like this out (if it isn't randomly included with another figure in 2014 or 2015).

    It's hard to do a Filmation accurate bow since the colors are different on the figure; a Filmation Trappy would be the best option to deal with that, but I don't see that happening any time soon. But including Trappy, we might actually have enough main character Filmation variants to push a min-sub for them. Skeletor, He-Man, Hordikins, Teela, Lynn and now Trappy come immediately to mind.
