    Origins Weapons Pack Wish List

    I was just thinking today about all the Origins accessories that are missing that I'd like to see if they did a weapons pack. I decided to keep the list small enough that all of them could potentially be found in a single pack. What would you like to see?

    Here are my most wanted:
    • Merman's Trident
    • A purple axe for Skeletor
    • Man-E-Weapons weapons
    • the Ram Stone

    You gotta at least throw in a blue Power Sword for old times' sake.

    They can include anything from the original Weapons Pak they want! (Although I was never a fan of the yellow beast man armor and would rather see the black Zodac armor on a Wun-dar).

    Y'know what I wish I'd had the foresight to do as a kid - since for some reason I'd ended up getting multiple Weapons Packs back then - was get at least two extra Beast Man figures, stick the yellow gear on them and make them Beast Man's subordinates, like "lower" members of whatever tribe or group or whatever he came from. That would've been neat.

    I guess I can still do it now, but those yellow armor pieces are kind of expensive now.

    Well, since the weapons rack that came with Origins Castle Grayskull was severely lacking, I'd like to include many of those AND the weapons that were on the vintage cardboard A-frame rack.

    So:

    CG spear
    CG halbred
    CG laser pistol
    CG short-handle axe
    CG shield
    CG chain mace
    CG short handle double-blade axe
    CG laser pistol (different sculpt)

    I'd also like a FULL gray and silver Power Sword that fits easily in the gripped hands.

    Trident for Mer-man
    Staff of Avion for Stratos
    Shaping Staff for Evil-lyn
    A better whip for Beast Man, something in solid plastic. Or a club, like caveman style
    New Trap Jaw attachments to up his utility. Things like chainsaws, hammers, flame throwers, drills, maybe even an actual hand
    Some kind of war hammer I can give Ram Man or Fisto
    Origins Dylamug confirmed via Powercon 2021 Horde boxart! Time to celebrate!
    Most wanted Origins: Dylamug, Grizzlor, Mantenna, Wrap Trap, Octavia, Dragstor, Tung Lashor, Rattlor

    Shaping Staff would be great! I also wish Trap Jaw had a hand for the attachment arm, and I have always been a fan of his flyswatter.

    Mer-Manís trident, for sure.
    More weapons for the CG rack, filling the old ones from the original, but maybe some new ideas too (side note, I wish they had come in grey, like the Eternian guard weapons).
    Standard He-Man harness in orange with purple details. It bugs me that Faker wears Skelatorís armour. Maybe a shield for Faker too (Iím using a spare vintage Twobad shield as the colour matches really well)
    Shaping staff would be fun.
    Blue power sword
    A longer sword for She-Ra

    We can most likely expect little to no new tooling in a weapons pack, given Mattel's M.O. Anything that was in the vintage set would be welcome, of course, but I'd also like to see some existing accessories in new colors. Keldor's cape in black, a gold or silver vac-metal power sword, and maybe toss in a head or two in new colors, such as the wave one He-Man head in Faker colors. If we were to get a bit of new tooling in such a set, I'd definitely like magic and weapon blast effects, the previously mentioned Mer-Man's trident, some of the missing Grayskull weapons, and even the little triangular rack itself. I think it would be small enough to be feasible. Hopefully we'll see some sort of accessory pack next year.

    Oh, gosh, I don't know how I forgot to add "A much better sword for She-Ra".

    I ended up getting a very nice custom sword (and shield, and tiara) for She-Ra to replace the rather-crappy ones that come with the figure. But I wish we didn't have to do that.

    I wouldn't mind a hands pack with clenched fists, flat "lifting boulder" hands and perpendicular joint grip hands so figures can point their swords forward. Released twice in 2 different colour packs so people can pick the pack they want.

    Yes. Exactly what I want too!

    Honestly I'd rather not see an Origins Weapons pack. Instead I'd like to see those weapons, or some of them at least, come with figures. We already got the blue ax in the MOTWWEU line. As for the rest the yellow Beastman armor could come with a deluxe flocked Mossman. Of course Wun-Darr would come with the black Zodac gear. King Grayskull could come with the blue sword. The weapons and shield could come with some kind of troop builder pack, maybe a 3rd version of the royal guard and a Skelecon.

    That's actually one of the things about Origins that annoys me. We should be getting more with some of these figures. There have been numerous opportunities for them to include extras with figures in the main line that make sense, some of which have become standard inclusions with certain figures, but they've stuck to the bare minimum even on figures that are 100% reused tooling. Mer-Man lacking his trident, Faker not having his own axe and shield, 2002 colors Evil-Lyn not including the 2002 dagger or longer staff, Stratos including no weapons, things like that. I just don't have any faith that they'll start including accessories with figures or multi-packs that are intended for other figures, like Classics did. A hypothetical weapons pack is probably the only way we might get a lot of this stuff.

    I would have liked more weapons with some figures too, but there is a budget and a bottom line. What I think we're seeing is the people that make this line happen throw in some "discount figures" to free up money for other figures later on. For every Faker or MYP Evil-Lynn there's a Mosquitor or Flying Fists He-Man on the horizon.

    For sure some weapons that can go with the Royal Guards (ie Grayskull weapons), so they aren't all identical. The MOTUC set was the greatest thing ever. This one...not so much. (I still like it, but it can be better).

    We might be getting color swapped Stratos. I recall a leak with Stratos listed among other figures. So far we have been assuming vintage mini comic "evil" Stratos/Origins Avian Warrior. But it could be vintage toy variant and disappointing.

    I reckon it's mini comic since he's made a cardback appearance.

    And that coloring of Stratos was used in the mini comic for wave four.
