    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the boards but love the community. I have a little problem and wondered if any of you had any advice.

    I recently bought a Classics Jetfire off ebay for a price too good to be true. Naturally, it was. After a week with him wondering why the guns didn't quite work (and of course, after leaving positive feedback) I realized that he hadn't shipped with all of his accessories. The seller was no help at all.

    Jetfire himself is in great shape, but I wonder if any of you may be able to recommend a way to get my hands on his guns and such. Ebay auctions for these items are kind of scarce, and I'm not even sure what I'm missing, really.

    Ah well. As a Skyfire for my Classics display, he still works just fine.

    The colors might not be an exact match, but if you have a Toys R Us near you maybe you can find yourself a cheap Universe Treadbolt. Same mold. My TRU seems to have two of these on the shelf at all times. It's $15.

    Good luck. He comes with:

    Main figure
    helmet
    double barrel rifle (which can split into two)
    two missile launchers and missiles
    booster pack (the tips of the pop-out guns may be loose and fall off)

    I don't understand, what guns didn't work? What accesories are you missing?

    He doesn't have either of his hand weapons (the ones you can join together). As well, he's missing the blue wrist missiles and the tips of the guns you can fold back into his thrusters, meaning that the thrusters can't be sheathed.

    Mercifully, I do have his helmet. Which is a pretty neat feature.

    Bummer, the black gun and thruster blasters are the coolest bits. Everything else is not that important IMO, as I tend to like the cartoon model more than the actual G1 toy.
