    SLL shield is for sure the dud in the pack, but I understand they run them as sets. A little paint would have gone a long way. I wanted SLL weapons since he came out! My Fang Man & Snake Face are super happy right now! I'll be getting 2, I just hope the gold sort of matches the Pheonix gaurds. Royal gaurds need royal weapons!

So this time out we're getting 6 weapons that can only be shared between 3 figures? What's the point in that?

    There were a number of truly legitimate items that would have neatly filled those spots, that should seriously have taken precedence and have now been ousted by random (let's be honest) crap.

    I'm at least happy that the past 2 years have given us the accessories we would have missed due to budget limitations, and I love that they're sneaking Kowl in this way... but for real, 4 of these packs and barely 50% of it is useable stuff with added play value. A lot of it has been low-cost filler and nothing more.
    Even if they did put usable stuff in there, it most likely would have no paint apps, as less than half of the things in there do. It's a total cheapfest. I suppose this is to offset the Kowl cost, but if the weapons pack costs more than $20 (the originals cost 12) it will be pretty tough to swallow. I have changed my mind, and I think the Rattlor armor looks decent. Thought it looked cheap on the original pics. So for Rattlor's armor and Kowl, I hope it stays under $20. All of the other weapons are worthless or need more paint apps. Even the ones that got paint seem cheap. Netossa's Popsicle and Strobo's Trumpet are the biggest disappointments. I originally thought Netossa's popsicle had a off colored paint hit, but it is actually a blue jewel. If the sword had any paint on it, Like a silver blade or handle it might have been cool. And Strobo's trumpet is just a sloppy mess.

    Could anyone attending the panel tomorrow please ask Toyguru what the point of discontinueing the weapons packs is? On matty's forums he clearly states they can't promise that in the future accessories won't get cut. Yet he offers no solution to this problem while simultaneously discontinuing the solution they already had for this problem in the first place.
    I honestly fail to see the logic or sense behind this decision!
    Awesome sticker included!

    Personally, the Granamyr Weapons should have been made on their own with it's own rack. (Good to sell with Castle Grayskull for those who missed it the first time).

    I'm stumped with the green weapons... The sword doesn't seem to have any paint on it.
    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'm with you. Magenta Faker stuff and other weapons would be great, but replacing the red weapons from the weapons rack with rusted silver versions to match the rest was what I wanted the most. The weapons rack just looks kind of silly and non-vintage with metallic red weapons when the weapons were all gray from the original Grayskulll playset. With the castle coming now it is even more of a bummer.

    That's because they've wasted all this time and four packs giving fans only 50% of what they were asking for- using that brilliant "pad the line out!" strategy. Now that the Paks are ending (due from what I can only assume is slow sales- last year's is STILL available after all this time), we're stuck with a lot of things nobody really wants (Stratos jet pack, Clawful mace in green, Sir Laser Lot's shield in a non-lasery-looking plastic, Trap-Jaw having 9 arm attachments), and wanting for what we'll never have (spellcasting effect in different colors, BG Teela's raygun in another color for any of the women to use, magenta Faker armor, Horde armbands, Snakemen armor, ad nauseum).
    Anyways, it's the end of an era for sure.
    Maybe going forward we'll see more secret accessories packed in with other figures, or maybe things like Megalaser or Stilt Stalkers...

I don't want any besides the Vintage He-Man variants....but if they do make a few 200X ones....it should only be the top few high demanded ones.... Classics is not heavily about variants, and it don't need to start now.

    Yeah, so many wasted opportunities between these last 2 packs....mind you, every one of the new items....are well recieved, but the repaints could have been either different better weapons repainted, or they made the most of the last 2 packs, and filled them with all new ****....I don't think people would have *****ed to pay $20 or so for weapons packs full of newly tooled and much wanted goodies.

    Oh but I forgot, the last WP is peg warming....so I guess unless they intended it to do so, it failed....
    Recent....Flogg
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Same here. Expecting to see him now as another clear figure. Hope he's not as limited as Hordak.

    I might just paint all the weapons gold and give em to Granamyr, i don't use the weapons from the sets unless it'smissing from previous figures (Draego man, Strobo and Netossa for example) might just do that with my other spares too.
    CHECK OUT MY BRAND NEW WEBSITE for my Akil and Saltfish comic strip, more to come soon!

    If you watch the Filmation cartoon, Granamyr "lives" in a room that is filled with "treasure" which includes weapons, chests, gold, etc...

    It's a nice addition…but I'd rather have gotten a stand for ToD Zoar.

    More weapons for Trap Jaw that he can't store, and look ridiculous on him anyway? Plus he's already had stuff in a previous weapons pak. Give someone else some stuff! FAIL!

    Kowl in a weapons pak? A WEAPONS PAK? He should have been a pack in with a PoP figure! FAIL!

    Gold Granamyr weapons? How many people bought Granamyr? About a third of people who collect the line. And how many of those broke? FAIL!

    Changing Strobo's gun sculpt? FAIL.

    Green He-Man weapons? We already got blue and orange ones! BORING! FAIL!

    Netossa sword? A cheapskate repaint for one of the most unpopular figures in the line? Herp derp, that's a good idea. NOT. FAIL!



    Worst weapons Pak ever, imo.

    Massively disappointed in this. Way to go, Matty.
    Sounds like it should be an easy pass for you then?

    There are at least 6 figures that can use them off the top of my head:

    Trap Jaw
    Roboto
    Horde Prime
    Hurricane Hordak
    Spikor
    Cy Chop

    I think a huge mistake on Mattels part is not including Spector whip accessory. There is a prototype that already exists, there is no reason they could have included in this latest weapons pack and now we know we are getting no more weapons Paks, that means we will never get this accessory. There is no reason that they shouldnt have included it, period. It's the only accessory that we know exists yet we won't be getting it. Very disappointing.
