    Beast Man & weapons...

    I have always thought that Beast Man needs another weapon other than just the whip.

    Does anybody else agree?

    Let's say Mattel was going to add a weapon to Beast Man down the line, maybe the re-issue.

    If Beast Man was to get another weapon, what do you think it should be? What weapons have you seen Beast Man depicted with?

    I have been thinking about this, and just decided to get the opinion of everyone here too.

    What would it be? A sword, spear, shield, club, ax, etc.

    I've kinda always thought he should come with a club. A stone or granite looking club kinda like the one Captain Caveman used.

    How 'bout you guys?

    I like him with a club, too. He can snare a good guy with his whip, then bash him over the head with his club.

    A club works for Beastman. He's a blunt object kinda guy.
    The thing I don't like about giving him a club though, is it would tie him closer to Mossman since Mossy uses a club & they're the same figure.

    He is often depicted in comics and books wielding an ax similar in size and width as he-man's.

    Spiked club with a big horn (like the armour's horns) would do fine...

    I've noticed a lot of artwork has Beast Man with an axe.

    He never really uses projectiles, huh? I mean, he has, but seldom.

    I think a crossbow would work well with him.

    I can also kinda see him with a spear and maybe a tribal looking shield.

    Keep the ideas coming...

    I'd go with the double-bladed axe for Beastman.

    I think hes fine as he is. He is a weapon already: gorilla strong, using his spiked fists, spiked body gear to body slam his enemies, teeth for a bite attack, and the whip to wrangle and control other beasts. Pretty dangerous already imo.
    Hes the sabertooth of eternia...without the healing factor, he doesnt need weapons...but I see how a crossbow could come in handy. ;-D

    I like this idea, true he doesn't really need weapons given his abilities but this and the whip would be prefect to me.

    I've always liked the idea of Beast Man with a big heavy club.

    Although in the 1987 movie, he does carry a battered old sword at his waist - maybe a simple Grayskull sword could serve as this.

    I think a big spiked gauntlet on 1 arm would be good. Especially if it was made using horns and teeth from other animals. It could also double up as a kind of shield

    A bow weapon, especially a crossbow, seems a bit sophisticated for ol' B-man. It's like giving Sarah Palin the Wall Street Journal.

    I'm in favour of the club with a big spike in it idea, or a spiked morning star with a really long chain, which can have the same range as a missile weapon with B-man swinging it.

    That's cool. One side can be really sharply jagged and covered in blood.

    Send SpyMonkey (AKA Jeremy Sung) a message, he's making MOTUC weapons and he might be interested in doing something for Beastman.

    Battle axe or warhammer. Something savage anyway.

    Or maybe a bolas snare (sp?) or net like they use in gladiator films.

    I like the idea of a large club or battle axe with a shield or buckler. A net would be a sweet addition as well.

    I've seen him with a single blade axe in mini-comics, too.

    And I agree, he's already a weapon, but I just like the idea of all figures coming with at least two weapons. Even though you can't use them, I was happy they gave Tri-Clops the throwing knives.

    So far, i'm still thinking a club or a crossbow would work best for Beastie.

    i'm okay with just the whip. sometimes it's nice when characters only have one weapon. having everyone as some kind of weapons master seems far-fetched. some people should be great at fighting with just one weapon, or even with only their bare hands. plus it's nice to have some figures that aren't loaded to the teeth with all kinds of gear.
