  • Armor pack

    OK, so some of us don't like "poofy" shirts and the like. It has also been pointed out that it's the design that makes these shirts "poofy". Would any one of us buy an accessory pack with fixed shirts and armors?

    I would. Sea Hawk is particularly bad and noticeable.

      Yes, definitely.

        I'd gladly buy an armor pack. I love swapping heads and parts on these figures to make new characters. While I don't think it's cool that Matty designers get lazy with their work, like the POP girls' crotch pieces or the thick armors like Sea Hawk, I would buy an armor pack, either with stuff like 200x style armor, or just updated versions of stuff already released.

        I'd probably buy an armor pack even if it wasn't fixed, if it included some useful or at least tastefully recolored parts. Maybe a silver MAA armor, or gold He-Man harness, red Skeletor harness, silver Hordak armor, etc.

            I would buy an armor pack that contained replacement armor for characters like Sea Hawk and Hydron, so long as it also had some new (or repainted) armor to go along with it.

              yeah. This, weapons and head packs might be a good way o squeeze out a few "new" figures, especially the NA and easy filmations ones.

            Yes. Even Fisto's armor could use some slimming down.

              I'd probably buy the pack, however I don't think it will happen anytime soon, if ever!

                Kind of, I'd love a He-Man harness for Faker in Orange. Maybe even a TP harness and pack. with the Skeletor bat instead of the H. A Mer-Man armor without the horns on the shoulders especially if there was to ever be a Filmation head for him. And yes, maybe a few replacements done by a new head of design....cough, cough....not Ruben.....

                  Oh yeah, I'd snatch up that Mer-Man armor. Maybe have a removable bow so you could make it look like the vintage toy as well.

                It would be cool if they made another armor pack. A Cosmic Enforcer armor and weapons in dark blue would be cool. I also wouldn't mind Mighty Spector's armor in silver with no spade emblem (replace it with the Grayskull skull emblem). Man-at-Arms arm and leg armor in silver would also be cool.

                  I don't think we'll ever see anything like this again. Seems Matty has given up on Classics, they're just going to ride out the final year.

                    It was suggested recently in the last Q&A that Mattel would like to keep the line going in some form (possibly rebranded). So I don't think the idea of a new weapons pack is completely off the table.

                  I like the idea of He-man's harness in Faker orange & purple. As well as Man-At-Arms' armor in silver.
                  I can't think of too many armor repaints I'd want other than that, and I don't see Mattel revisiting any of the Reuben fat armor screw-ups, even with that scumbag Neitlich out on his ass.

                    The one thing I hate about the weapons packs are the bright colors. Just give me black, gold and silver weapons. My choice for an armor would be a black (no sparkles) version of Standor's armor. Would certainly make it easier for people who want to make movie troopers, and would probably help increase sales.

                      I would be down with an armor pack. The classics Roboto clear torso seems a little small to me. I'd like to beef him up with a 200X style chest piece that snaps into a shoulder harness jet pack piece (or whatever that was that was that looked like jet vents). Some snap-on boots would be nice too, just to complete the look. Even if Mattel would only make repaints of existing classics armor, I'd be fine with that. Leaves me a custom project to work on for my Roboto.
