    Hi guy's,

    I bought SE-02 Universe off Ebay, it was all sealed but missing the part that forms the claw in robot mode/the top of the turret in tank mode:

    How it should be:

    Now the trouble is, I don't want to send it all the way back to Hong Kong where the Ebay trader is as I'm in the UK. If I contact Hasbro UK, will they be willing to help even though they don't sell this version here?

    Cheers

    I don't think they'll be able to help if it's an (outdated) toy that's not sold over there.

    However, maybe it's possible to find a junked Megatron and scrap it for parts? You might be able to find the regular green version and repaint the top part (it's green on the regular version).

    Highly unlikely i'm affraid.

    Did you ask the seller if they're willing to crack open another one, and send you the missing part?

    Not sure how you could get another one. On a side note, I just noticed that mine (the original deco of it) is missing the little claw thing on the end of the turret. Didn't notice that till just now, lol (got mine from a fellow board member).

    I've sent them a message, hopefully they will get back to me soon.

    Well I managed to pick up the last Classics version of Megatron today in Toys R Us, so I've sprayed the claw black and I was also missing the end of the gun:

    So now I'll just contact Hasbro UK and say that I was missing them on the Classics version instead :)

    Looking good! Maybe if you have the time you could give it another coat of lighter grey to really finish the job, but it's looking good either way!
