Ever notice how easily we tend to loose the accessories that came with our action figures?
On my hunt to complete my collections, I have also noticed a lack of accessories being
sent out with the figures I have bought in trades as well, so it can't just be me who can't find
them.

Above is just some of the accessories I'm now forced to hunt for in my quest to finish my JLU and TNBA collections.
Stop hording them people and let them be free? No one can save me from my never ending quest for them?


Please PM me if you've seen any. :mrgreen:

Who else out there is searching for bits and pieces to make there figures happy? :D :D :D
What's on your list of missing parts? Let us know what you think and feel about action figure accessories.

I completely understand you situation and want for the accessories for figures. A lot of times, the missing accessory completely makes the figure and without the accessory the figure is just not the same character. A couple examples would be like having a Hawk Girl without her mace, a Big Barda without her Mega Rod, a Star Girl without her Cosmic Rod or a Green Lantern without his power battery. The accessory just has to be there to make the character in some instances.

As far as accessories I would like to have, I listed some of them above. I would love to have a Mega Rod for Big Barda and of course will be buying the single just for that accessory as I already have the figure from the three pack. I was tempted to just make one but now that one is available I will just buy it. I would also like to have more Green Lantern power batteries and green power constructs as well. Another accessory I would like to have are more medieval weapons and shields for Hawkman and Hawk Girl.

I know that there are many more examples of accessories that I would like to have but those are just a few off the top of my head. I think it would be great if Mattel would produce an accessory pack or two just to supplement all of the awesome figures that have been released in the animated lines thus far. It would definitely make me a more happy collector. But...that's just my two cents.

JLU:
Multiple Green Lantern power batteries,
2 Red Tornado's tornadoes,
20 or more JLU Stands for females,
4 Dr.Light's light construct,
BTAS/TNBA:
Catwoman's whip & cat,
Clayface's mace hand,

and a Golden Batman Forever Jim Carrey Riddler cane, or one like it.

And I'll beset for a long while. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I really want character essential accessories for figures that we all bought first in the 3 pack format. The main 2 for me are Green Arrow's bow and Shining Knight's sword.

Big Barda's megarod is an essential accessory, but the one with the JLU single is wimpy to me and not worth $9.
The energy blasts or red tornados are not necessary to me since they are action related and don't look as good as a weapon in a stationary pose.
The important accessories never made are the key for the Key and a proper wand for Zatanna.

I also dreamed up a JLU weapons pack, as unrealistic as it may be, but it would include bow, sword, batarang, mace, shield, pistol, lantern, lasso, stand, and maybe something new like a correct rod for Stargirl or an axe for Hawkman.

Alcatraz,
For my JLU Hawkman I use the weapon that came with the MINIMATES Hawkman.
It has a flexable 'chain' morningstar, and funnily enough it's in scale!

Silver- that is a great Idea! Mattel did it for the Vintage Masters of the Universe line, as did Kenner with a mail away option for Vintage Star Wars and I will always love that Hasbro released several weapons packs ARAH Joes of the 80's

Matty.com would be a great place to release something like this.

GOOD HUNTING!

The cane you have pictured is a Batman Forever Jim Carrey Riddler cane, not B:TAS/TNBA.

Well, the proper cane for a B:TAS Riddler is green with a ball-grip on top and the TNBA Riddler's "cane" is gold but very obviously also a missile for the question mark cart to fire. If the Batman Forever cane is the one you want, you really should list it as that so that you don't chance ending up with the wrong one.

Not that anyone would want the hassle but the wand that comes with the DC Direct Zatanna from the Justice line fits with the JLU Zatanna perfectly. It rests perfectly in the hand that's on her hip.

I have a pic on my collection post but the pic might be too small to see properly

I'm stoked about Mattel's recent change to including accessories in upcoming 3 packs. And glad that newer collectors get another chance at Green Arrow with his bow.

I might add I think this new bow is better. It's a softer material but it stays in his hand better. The material clings better.

When I started collecting JLU some figures just had to have their accessories: Green Arrow, Shining Knight, and Zatanna to name a few. Others that I got from the three packs such as Atom, Batman, and Big Barda were fine without an accessory.

I've been looking to get my hands on a Phantom Zone projector and Wonder Pig, but they're hard to come by, unless you buy the figure that comes with them...

Good accessories rock. And sometimes, even the strange ones can be fun. I rather enjoyed Hasbro's "nose gun" for a while there, even though I'm glad we're not getting them anymore.

I've had some luck with getting some JLU stnds and a few Lanterns thanks to this thread.
Maybe it will help get me the golden Batman Forever Jim Carrey Riddler cane some day.

I'd take this cane to if I could find it. :cry:
