After making my highwaymen I realized I didn't have any money bags for them to steal. I would like to see BF make something similar to this:

Excuse my crude artwork. If the bag was roughly the size of a BF mushroom -
the neck the width perfect for minfig hands -
the top have a slit that a lego coin could be inserted for effect -
and a place in the very bottom for a stud to connect to

I believe it could be used for many themes and a variety of purposes.

This is a pretty fun and unique idea. Love the slot for a coin on top, I could imagine this being printed with a big $ on the side as well. Keep in mind a fig's hand is actually pretty tall, so the "neck" of the bag would have to be tall as well, but this definitely has my support.

I love this idea, and it would work really well with my Lego D&D idea that I haven't gotten around to putting together.

I think this is great. If it were able to be made as is, this would be a perfect addition. As Starwars4J pointed out though, the neck would have to be longer and would probably mess up the look of it. :( Still, I love the idea.

Actually its still possible to do with a small neck too, just have the minifig hand grip on the back of the bag, kind of like part of the bag but enough for a minifig to grab.

Or do something with the 'dent' (for the hand grip) hiding in the back of the bag somewhere; I think this might be what Asterios is saying.

You could do the hand grip similar to how TLG did the hand grip on the Collectable Minifigures Series 1 cheerleader pom-pom piece.

Personally, I think it would look better if the neck was just big enough for a clip to fit (for attaching it to belts, for example), and have the minifigs hold the bags using the stud-wide hole at the bottom instead.

But awesome idea, I'd like to see this.

It seems like you could attach a grip to the side of the neck... sorta like the Brass Knuckles, but instead of knuckles, the neck itself. Lol, I'm not very good at explaining today. This would be totally awesome, and I love the idea.

I just wonder if it were slightly larger how it'd look. I think it looks perfect as is, but slightly larger would make it grip-able by the neck. That way it could stand alone or be held by a minifig.
