    I got MP Star Saber at a local convention yesterday and it turns out he's missing Saber's front cockpit that forms into the big hilt of Star Saber's large sword. I've been trying to find ways to replace the missing part and I've heard that KFC has done a set that has a replacement cockpit for
    Saber that forms into a bigger version of Star Saber's hilt. Is this true and if so can someone show me? I really want to display him in alt mode but can't do it without Saber's cockpit.

    Who sells an MP with a missing part and not tell the buyer this upfront?

    I haven't heard about any 3P stuff, but hopefully someone will know.

    Perhaps he didn't know or forgot. Looking at the face I think I got a KO because the KO version is said to have a darker face with the eyes looking more dull.

    I've only seen the articulated hands kit from KFC and also an hand adaptor and different handle from ATP lt, but haven't heard of anyone replacing the whole nose assembly. Google isn't giving me any results either.

    I've bought him for 90 dollars for him actually.

    I don't think there is a replacement cockpit, unfortunately. I wish you luck in either locating one or being able to sell yours without much loss.

    Well so far I'm not finding luck trying to find a replacement cockpit for Saber. I'm now deciding if I should just order another one on Amazon which I'm sure will have everything including the cockpit or not. From the looks of it I may have to do the latter. What do you guys think I should do?

    I never noticed the larger hilt when I opened up my MISB one from Japan. Where is it suppose to be?

    It's made from the cockpit from Saber's alt mode that acts as a shield on Saber then acts as the larger hilt for Star Saber's sword.

    You would really have to luck out probably, as why would someone sell just that piece? You need someone that has an extra somehow in the same way you are missing that piece. It isn't going to be likely.

    You could try contacting transformerland.com to see if they have any way of helping you, sometimes they have odds and ends and they are very friendly.

    Beyond that, it is likely your best option is to buy a new one and either sell the current one, or the new one minus said part.

    yeah, i think any bargain on this guy was eliminated by him missing such a necessary piece that you're unlikely to find without buying a whole new one.
