My old solution to missing parts
aka: Kenner rocked!
Back in the day when I was a kid playing with all my old star wars toys I would often lose guns from figures or pieces of ships. What was a young disappointed boy to do? Write Kenner. They sent me bags full of guns, all of them. I wrote once having lost one figures gun and they sent a sandwich baggie filled with all different guns and multiples of each. Forget worrying about losing them. I had like 4 guns for each character! They were also great with missing/broken pieces. I remember the awesome speeder bike ethat blew apart when you pushed the button on it. A piece I had broke and wouldn't snap the thing back together. I wrote Kenner and they sent me a whole new speeder bike. Rock on!
