Hey guys! This is sort of a request/ idea pool. I know that there are several vendors that sell arrows, but these are older and a bit harder to get at. I think some form of arrow would be of great use. I've stewed over this for some time and I can't get any practical ideas. Anyone know of some good arrow designs?

Hmm, I like this idea. Just as I liked the idea of a compound bow! We would need several different arrows. No castle figure's knee would ever be safe again!

I'm a fan of this idea!
(desperation has lead me to 'de-arrow' some lego bows ... for several MOCs)

Yes! Individual arrows would be a must. I think it could work if the tail fins/feathers stuck out at about the same radius as a minifig's grip so one could hold the arrow. Maybe the arrowhead could be wide enough to be gripped as well as long as it doesn't look too disproportional.

I think packs of arrows would be neat, having a minifig gripable pin behind the feathers would be a good idea, and maybe make the shaft the same sze as the non-minifig gripable pins on the fire peice. If that makes any sense. Just my thoughts.

Arrows.... I can get behind this. Anyone getting in front of it is in for a world of hurt anyways ;9 Being so small, I'd prefer seeing them sold in a pack of maybe 3. I imagine BF would make them grip-able at some point on them because they have to be consistent with minifig accessories, otherwise they just don't look like they belong.

I first got this idea when my brother was using brown lego spears as arrows. I'm glad so many people like it :D.
