    Horde Crossbow For Catra?

    Am I the only one that really wants to see a Horde crossbow done for Catra?
    But we mustn't dwell. No, not today. We Can't! Not on Rex Manning Day!

    I thought about it after seeing Octavia with hers at Power-Con.


    I think this would be cool for the next weapons pack.

    I think it would be cool, but it was never sculpted when she was first made, and we aren't getting anything that wasn't sculpted before, so its highly unlikely we will get one.

    I'm not against it but I don't think every member of the Horde needs one.
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    I wouldn't be upset if one came out, but my Catra has her hands full. I probably wouldn't use it anyways.

    It would be great, but it seems unlikely.

    It would be nice to pose Catra with something a little more threatening. While I like the sword and shield, I don't understand why they're both pink instead of red or purple. Sure, the original accessories were pink, but that's because the action figure had a pink bodice, etc so they "matched". I don't find Catra in the red Filmation outfit very aesthetically pleasing when wielding the pink accessories.

    For the moment, I'm happy with Catra wielding the gun/pistol that came with BG Teela, but a cross-bow (or Beast-Man's whip in silver) would be great.

    Keldor's 200X Swords?
    MAA's 200X canon?

    Neither existed when the figure was created....

    You don't think the fact Catra can literally whip your ass, then comb your hair with the same whip to make your beaten body look prrrrty when they find you is threatening?

    If its Catra she won't be part of the sub. There is only one variant this year.

    I actually tried using the crossbow that came with my Buffy figure for Catra because it didnt feel right her being the only Horde person without one, and it semed to work ok for her. Granted she could use her own specially designed one though like the others, but maybe if we ever see a Catra variant.

    I gave her the crossbow-type weapon that came with the 200x Castle Grayskull. I know it's not an 'official' Horde weapon, but she wears it well.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    Well, Modulok was (both in toy line and in canon) a latecomer to the Horde's ranks, and Mosquitor and Multi-Bot are more lackeys. I prefer my theory that the crossbow is sort of an 'officer's' weapon. Catra should have one (I think she'd probably look good with one), arguably Scorpia. Shadow Weaver would theoretically be eligible for one, but she disdains such crude implements.

    Catra needs one because her weapons are not all that great. Imagine a crossbow with a feline-themed head, it would be cool.
    I don't think the others mentioned need them, but Catra would benefit from it greatly.

    I like the idea that the lackeys wouldnt get one. I dont think Shadow Weaver would need one cause how often does she get in a fight that her magic cant handle?

    I also think if they ever get to Double Trouble she would need a version of the crossbow. Being a spy and all, she needs to fit in!

    If it fits, you could always use the silver one that came with the 1st weapons pak with 1 of your non-crossbowed Horde figures.

    Thank you for joining the Horde. Here is your Horde patch and your crossbow! Keep moving. I think it would be pretty cool to keep the theme going. Shadow Weaver could have a spell caster, like Chewbacca's bow caster.

    Count me in. I'm not a big fan of her sword and I don't display her with it. I would love to see a crossbow made for Catra

    I agree, the cross-bow would be much cooler than a cat sword...in my opinion...don't hate me...

    Eh, I don't need one. Would be neat to see, but I probably wouldn't end up using it. I see Catra as a usurped warlord. Seems like she was pretty powerful in the minicomics, so Hordak probably defeated her and forced her into working for the Horde...well, "forced" as in she either worked for the Horde or would be executed. Anyway, I don't think she would lower herself to using any of the Horde standards and would rather just keep to her own methods.

    ...er, in my own personal story, anyway.
