Yep. I think they actually did in the previous box too, but but it's been a while.

they definitely didn't in the previous box, they had two chainswords and that was it

the sargeant/special weapons sprue had one.

GW website has images of the sprues available at the end of each items gallery. Looking there, the new Vanguard kit has 4 pairs of lightning claws, 4 thunder hammers [right], 4 storm shields [left], powerfist [right] and relic blade [right]. All but the claws are hands only (need an arm, which the box will only provide 5 of each, but you can always just chop a hand off any other arm you don't want).

I had a look at one of my old sprues, and I think you're right. I looked through and found a couple of old sergeant sprues, and although neither were complete, neither had a Power Sword and I would have been unlikely to have clipped them off at this point.

Updated the OP with Vanguard weapons.

seems you are right..

bought a tac squad maybe 3 years ago and most probs put the spares from Assault in there.

You have missed the command squad sprue. There is at least 1 more left handed power fist and the company champion's power sword and combat shield. Will you be adding pistols to the list?

And also 1 of each; flamer, melta and plasma, as well as an ornate bolter

I'll probably add plasma and grav pistols, but bolt pistols seem to be a lot more common, along with chainswords.

There is also a left power fit in the old stern guard kit and whist I remember the masters of the chapter box has 2 power swords,a power axe, storm shield, thunder hammer and power fist.

The old metal Sternguard power fist is pretty hard moulded onto the model so I don't regard it as an easily accessible 'bit', while the combi guns were separate as you could swap them on one guy.

All but the claws are hands only (need an arm, which the box will only provide 5 of each).

The vanguard lightning claws are fully armed up (no need for adding limbs to them), just the other weapons are hand only.

Doesn't the new Vanguard come with a Power Axe and a Relic Blade?

Worthy of note might be that the Sternguard kit has a Heavy Bolter complete with Backpack.

The Dark Angel Chapter Upgrade/Company Veterans sprue has (arms included):
right handed power sword with no DA iconography
left handed power mace with Dark Angel medallion which can be reworked but takes some effort
left handed power sword, iconography is sword + halo (technically generic but some might not like the sword)
left handed shield with hooded angel iconography - looks like a combat shield from one side but the handle doesn't allow holding of a pistol which would make it a storm shield.

The Ravenwing command box includes several rather ornate power swords with blatant Dark Angel iconography (2 right, 1 left, weapon + hand ala Vanguard box), as well as multiple Corvus Hammers (2 left, 2 right, again weapon + hand) which could be used as mauls.

Any chance of getting bionic legs/arms/heads/etc added to this list?

I'm a bit busy with work at the moment but once I'm more free I hope to add the more esoteric bits and bobs to the list.

Space Wolves box is teeming with melee bits, if you don't mind the runes etc. Engraved runes can easily be covered with liquid green stuff at least. Other bits (legs, torsos, etc) are probably too heavily decorated to use with vanilla marines, so the box is probably not worth it if you're only after the weapons. Just a mention...

The Space Marine commander has a bionic arm. I believe it's the arm with the chainsword. The forgeworld character upgrade has 3 bionic arms and a pair of legs too.

Feel free to browse through my website if it makes compiling the list easier. You may also use the photos in this thread if you like.
