    Would you support a She-Ra "sword transformations" Weapons Pak?

    Just been watching a few Filmation She-Ra episodes this afternoon.

    I'd almost forgotten about her many Sword transformations (and some of them, being Filmation, naturally quite bizarre)
    "Sword to shield" "Sword to rope" "Sword to blanket", that sorta thing (and yes, that last one does really exist!)

    What do you guys feel about a "sword transformations" Weapons Pak?
    We all know Filmation is off-limits, but these things could be kinda generic.
    I'm not normally one for unique tooling for "extra" items, when it should IMO go to new characters, but I think they would be pretty easy to create.

    Any support?
    (I'm not saying this one of the things I'm most hung up on seeing, just wondered how others feel about the concept)

    As a general concept, I think it might be fun. Maybe rather than a big set that hits the tooling budget, make them extra accessories for POP figs that don't have many weapons? Like the 200x sword with Man-at-Arms. Just a thought.

    I would go with this over an actual pack.

    Im torn.
    On the one hand Id love some extra accessories, on the other hand I find the whole concept of an all-powerful transforming sword ridiculous.

    And with Filmation rights being off the table, I guess this should rather be someting SpyMonkeyCreations should tackle.

    I would totally support and buy this as long as there is no "Sword to Blanket" even the writers of that episode hated it and still hate it to this day. Other than that I am on board!!!

    I would certainly buy it. That said unless it was part of the sub I think it would have a hard time selling. I think you'd have to find a way to make it more marketable. Maybe a weapons pack that has other weapons in it too but just happens to have a lot of these weapons in it?

    I don't like the idea of packing them in with characters that don't have many weapons because i'd rather see those characters get new weapons specially fit to them that make them cooler.

    I would support though these weapons maybe being packed in with Kowl, or a twiget pack or something like that as an added selling point. Or if they ever did brightmoon gaurds.

    OMG! That is hilarious!!

    As for filmation rights, I'm pretty sure filmation didn't create the rope.

    As much as I love POP, a weapons pack solely dedicated to the 'Sword to ...' transformations doesn't really appeal to me. Pack them in with characters who won't necessarily come with much accessories, for example Scorpia.

    As much of a Filmation fan as I am, and I missed having the transformations as a kid, I dont think Id want an entire weapons pack for it. Granted I wouldnt mind having the silver shield though, whether it be Filmation style or even just a silver repaint of the classic shield she already comes with. (Personally I thought that should have gone in the second weapons pack wilth the two toned silver Sword of Protection.)

    However if we did started getting stuff like that, we would also need He-Mans grappling hook and rope. That was one thing I missed as a kid as he used it a lot.

    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I would buy it of course, but there's that Flimation hurdle again, huh? In any event, I think a silver She-Ra shield is in order post haste!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Absolutely, yes I would support this.

    I also want an Imp figure packed with a good selection of his transformations.

    Mattel not buying the Filmation rights is about the stupidest decision of all time!

    I would support anything POP. That's the biggest draw of this line for me.

    Well the first thing that comes to mind is Filmation rights, I don't think they could do this without 'em. The second is the helmet would probably need to be on a new head to look right. Third and final would be, do we *really* need the blanket one? j/k

    That would be so cool...Mattel could do many of the melee weapons in She-Ra colors!! Like Whiplash's spear, Buzz-Off's axe, Scare-Glow's halberd and Clawful's mace. Maybe they could affix a Sword gem to the weapons.

    I personally wouldn't want this, I really never liked this element from the cartoon.

    Sword to... weapons included as PART of a Weapon pack?? Oh YEAH!!!

    Imagine a hemet, shield, and rope packaged with Filmation He-man sword, Filmation Havoc Staff and a half dozen other items. THAT would sell pretty good. A whole pack dedicated to one character isn't a good idea.
    A Filmation themed pack with the swords, and other items that appeared in the two shows would be killer.

    Maybe even put Imp and a few of his alternate forms in there !
