    Hey folks, my girlfriends brother ordered a MISB KO G1 Swoop from a seller in Hong Kong. It arrived recently and when he opened it he discovered that there was no right arm on the toy!

    So, here's what I'm wondering -- the seller is offering to ship him a replacement Swoop arm at no cost so that he can repair it himself. I don't have a Swoop to compare against, but I just wanted to confirm whether or not this is possible. I know there are a lot of screws G1 toys, but some of the joints are held together with pins that are very difficult to remove. I haven't seen the toy myself, but it sounds like they just forgot to put a right arm on him -- no shoulder, no nothing. Is it going to be possible to fix if the seller ships him the arm? Thanks.
