    Green Clawful Mace from the Weapons Pak

    So, I missed this whole fiasco (wasn't collecting at the time). What is the difference in the mace that you get with Clawful, and the one in the weapons pak? Is one colored a slightly different shade of green to better match the vintage figure?
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    I think that's what they were going for? Closer to the vintage one. It's funny, 'cause people have asked for all sorts of minor changes to make something closer to the toys in one way or another...and they choose that. Weapon Paks are specifically for getting recolors of weapons...and...

    ...oh heck, this has been done and said a million ways. The answer is yes, I think they were going for that. And it was a stupid choice.

    brighter green I think.
    the one from the weapons pack; the paint seems to flack & chip off with mine that I got.
    disappointing weapon item, by the way...

    it should have been done in yellow for Merman. Or any other color really...
    I just published my very first ebook: Malediction! A short story of monsters and magic!
    Buy it now on Amazon or Barnes and Noble!

    Print version, also available!

    It certainly was a wonky choice for a repaint, but the weapon pak mace and shield does look good with Dekker.

    If they had done it in a red to match Clawful's shield, I would be fine with it. Really, there are any number of colors they could have made it that I'd be fine with. But a slightly different shade of green? It's just such a bizarre choice, and what's worse, at least IMO, it just really doesn't go well with any of my other figures. About the closest that could maybe work is Dekkar, but it's still a weak fit (plus, I have Dekkar armed with a katana from Final Fantasy 8's Gilgamesh anyway, giving him a kind of samurai look).

    Absolute waste of plastic. Who knows what goes through their brains, particularly when there's so many simple recoloured item requests that they don't fulfill.

    Loads of the weapon pack weapons have been odd and pointless colours, not sure why the mace is the straw which broke the camels back.

    Likely because it was not only another stupid choice, it was also near identical to the original, making it beyond redundant.

    Giving it to Dekker works, but it was a bit of a let down.
    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

    I am not really that upset by this. It's not why I got that weapons pack anyways. Most of my weapons pack weapons just sit in the package as a backdrop to the toys. I take out and use a number of them though, and I choose to purchase them for those things alone. Anything else is bonus or at worst extraneous.

    That being said slightly different shade of green was royally stupid. I agree that even making it Merman's yellow, or Clawful red...

    Luckily it doesnt matter one whit either way, but it could have been a different colour at least.
