Inventory list from the instructions. The set photography and artwork in the
instructions indeed shows the octagonal hilt, but the element ID doesn't
correspond. The spear appears to be dark brown, regardless.

We do not usually make any changes to inventories based on the set instructions
or packaging images because both of those sources can contain mistakes. The only
true source of making sound inventory corrections is with the contents of a sealed
set.

I have found some preliminary evidence online that shows that you may be correct
in requesting these changes, but the evidence is not as great as I would like.
Therefore, I have ordered this polybag and will open it as soon as it arrives
to determine how to proceed with your requests.

Thanks for your patience.

Cheers,
Randy

I have received my set, and your requests are correct.

Thanks for contributing!
