Why aren’t there more accessory packs these days? Back in the 80s you could buy packs of weapons, armor and equipment for your figures or vehicles. MOTU had them, G.I. Joe had them, and (personal favorite of mine that doesn’t get talked about much these days) Wheeled Warriors had them. The 3rd (4th if you count the Weapons Rack) such pack in MOTUC is the Great Unrest Weapons Pak, which is the first one to include newly tooled accessories instead of just redecos. A number of items that were cut from figures due to cost this year have been included in this pack, as well as some fan requested items.
The Four Horsemen have been designing MOTU figures for about ten years, and now for the first time we have a character they created themselves. Draego-Man is the second figure in the 30th Anniversary sub line, from which we’ve already seen Fearless Photog, the winning entry of the 80s Create-A-Character contest. At first I wasn’t on board for the Anniversary line. I wanted Photog, but completely new characters with no fiction, nostalgia, or history to support them? I wasn’t sure. However, letting the Four Horsemen handle the first completely original character in MOTUC was definitely a good move.
