"think out" is in all the JEs. It sounds fine to me, although it's more commonly used to mean "think about carefully".
I don't think "develop" is needed.
Added senses.

Surely that should be "think up" or "think of", and not "think out"?  (Google tells me that "to think out a plan" is quite common for something... perhaps a dialect difference...)  

I added "to develop", common on reverso and eijiro. I don't think that any of the "think" variants are a great loss, but I wouldn't make any of them the #2 suggestion.  Certainly not "think out".

come up with a creative way to〈話〉
Flashy hero character "came up with" a collection of handsome poses (for his future statues).  I just liked the translation, none of the existing glosses here would have worked nearly as well for this pairing, and eijiro supports it.
