    Talking 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!

    "Kenner. We Really Do Care!"
    Does that phrase sound foreign about now? I tried to get a part from the Queen's Ship that wasn't included, and they (Hasbro; don't get them confused with Kenner!) sent me two wrong items before informing me the part was no longer available. The remedy I was given was to send THE WHOLE SHIP BACK and receive an item of similar worth. What else is "worth" $100 Star Wars-wise?
    I predict that the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi film will include the word "and." Multiple times.

    Kenner was the best. I remember when I lost the canopy to one of my Cloud Car cockpits, then sent me three new ones!!!! GEEEEZ. . . there were only TWO cockpits!!!! I could also get new stickers when mine would fall of, too. You'd be lucky if you got one of what you wanted from Hasbro nowadays.
