Ooooh, very smart. Effective ways of carrying tools/weapons/supplies is a little world-building detail that I've been trying to incorporate into my own fanfics/retellings of LEGO themes. Many of my Toa MOCs have holsters for their Toa tools. In my Knights Kingdom II rewrite, I gave the hero quartet a packhorse for their journey to the Citadel of Orlan.
Of course, this type of world-building detail doesn't usually make it into LEGO's action-oriented themes, but I really like adding it. It helps the world feel more credible and alive, y'know what I mean?
I don't have the time to sit down and read the whole comic right now (I like reading comics in one go, helps me get into the story more) but out of curiosity, did you make any big world changes (romance, aging, food, multiverses, etc.) for this retelling?
