    Looking forward to this overall. I am looking forward to seeing how the Rattlor armor looks on some of the Snakemen army builder guys, as I'll probably put it on one of those for more variety.

    I really like the green sword! Makes me want to make a 'slime pit he-man' for them to go with. Part of me is holding out hope there's a clear one as next year's 'chase' figure.
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    Thanks for the review! I will buy this for Kowl, Netossa's sword and Rattlor's armor.

    Dan, in your video Rattlor's armor appears to be riding a little high. Is it possible to get it lower and to sling the lower straps along the ab crunch to make it fit better?
    Cheers,
    TuShan

    Hmmm, this is OK. Will definitely get, but some odd choices.

    I love Kowl, but think he would've been better packed in with a figure rather than taking away from the paint apps in a weapons pak.
    Also, he is too small for my liking, I would've preferred him a little bigger, Filmation colours, in a flight pose on a flight stand, like Orko.



    See, clearly the same size as Orko, but much smaller in your vid!

    The green He-Man weapons are kinda cool even though I have no use for them.

    Silver TJ weapons are very cool... the hook should look awesome on Cy-Chop!

    I've never liked that Rattlor armor, the bright colours make it look too cartoony for me, but it'd look cool on one of the Snake Men, I wish I hadn'd sold my extra set now.

    Disappointing about the lack of paint apps on Strobo's gun. It kinda sucks that we couldn't get it with Strobo because of cost, and then have to fork out extra for it in a Weapons Pak, but still can't get it as intended because of cost, despite paying more for it! Madness.

    Other than the weapons rack, this will be the only weapons pack I have brought. Looks the best one so far though without Kowl I wouldn't have bothered. Kowl looks so tiny though next to Orko and especially the 80s toy version!
    Only things I don't like are the green He-man weapons. I have no use for them at all.

    YOU MAGNIFICENT GOD! I hadn't even thought of that! Fantastic! And since I'm getting two sets that should be some awesome double guns for him. Thank you!

    @Dan: Are the golden weapons molded in that color or painted over?

    I did. I posted the same idea two posts before NastyNate.

    Dan of the Pixels... Can you please post some pictures of the silver trap jaw weapons with/on Cy-Chop?
    Since it is such a great idea, I'd just like to see how they match.

    They are molded in that color. No paint on them, it seems.

    Good stuff Dan!

    If you do find yourself in the mood for snapping a few pictures later on, can I request these?

    -Frosta wielding the Netossa sword
    -Cy-Chop "wearing" the Trap Jaw attachments
    -Nepthu wielding some of the gold weapons

    Thanks!
    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

    Aside from Kowl being a little undersized…I'm REALLY looking forward to this weapons pack! Kowl, Netossa's sword, Strobo's gun and Rattlor's armor all make this pack well worth snagging! Thank you for another great review PD!

    I'm expecting Kowl in Filmation colours to show up packed in with another figure, now that all the tooling is done.
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things arenít absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I donít collect toys to be miserable. So Iíd rather think about the things that do excite me

    Thank you, it`s good that they mold some weapons in that color. I hope, they`ll release some other demanded weapons next year with the figures, like the white Hordak crossbow

    Well, the only thing I really want from the pack is the Rattlor armor. I guess I'll have to find someone who wants to sell theirs.

    So really it's just the beak,feet,hands,eyes,eye brows that are different on the Filmation?

    If I manage to pic up a pack or 2 I will have no use for the Kowls.

    I think you meant to say "Catra's Sword" in the video. You said Starburst She-Ra. She hasn't been released.

    I love Netossa's sword, Strobo's gun and Kowl. Rattlor's armour looks fantastic, but I think it doesn't look right with that head. It makes me want a new, meaner, less silly looking head.

    I love, love, LOVE Kowl's colours but REALLY wish he had ball-jointed shoulders. Then we could have made a good flying pose. Heck, the Ewoks from Star Wars are just as small as him and have a LOT more articulation!



    Either way, I'm getting 3-4 because of Kowl (must have Kowla and Red Eye).

    The made the sword as it was shown on the cardback. It would have been nice to get the blue shield too, but what can you do?



    To be really accurate, it was a repaint of the variant Starburst She-Ra sword that had the LONG "jewel" sticker. We don't have that sword yet:

    His size varied GREATLY in the show and other media.

    I think he meant Bubble Power She-Ra's sword.

    On Kowl, to me he's the perfect size. I wanted him to sit reasonably on Bow's shoulder.

    I didn't know that Kowl's size was not consistent in the Filmation cartoon. How odd.
    I can live with his size, but it would be nice if he was just a little bigger, it's shame his size/articulation probably has a lot to do with the Weapons Pak budget limitations.

    Cool to see that pic from the Ladybird books, it seems the new toy most closely resembles that version in terms of both size and colouring.

    What's in Kowl's hinged chest?

    Still remembers we paid excessive shipping on Battleground Teela. Is confident Matty will resolve the issue and make it right for us.

    I'm definitely picking one of these up. Rattlor looks way cool with the armor. He looks too plain now without it. And I have been looking forward to Kowl, but man, did they really have to have that huge Trademark lettering covering his one ear? Throw that wording underneath his tail or something.

    Glad to be getting Kowl. Strobo's weapon and even Rattlor's armour too though i've been using a spare 200X Rattlor armour piece since we've had Rattlor. A sword for Netossa is cool too. The repaints are ok, not sure what i'll do with them yet.

    I do wonder though if the repaints in this Weapons Pak have met any fans demands, for example, listed in one of the threads on here somewhere.

    Great review, Dan! Not necessarily feeling this set and I may pass, but would be nice to get the Rattlor armor and Kowl.

    Great ideas about Prime and Cy-Chop.

    I'll actually be able to display them both at the same time now! With one Prime hand each, and a legit back-up weapon attached to the other. That's so great. Great belt idea. LOVE it.
