    Was the TM-12 reissue of Gimlet (lobster) missing the firing launcher needed for the Tripredacus combination?

    I just bought myself a DJ to complete the combiner, and noticed that I couldn't find this launcher piece.

    Can anyone confirm?

    I believe that reissue did not include the missle launcher! Where did you find a dj seperately though? I really want that repaint.

    Curses! I bought DJ on eBay (took me two years to await one), and now there's a missing piece. Granted, all three look great uncombined, but I was really hoping to combine them alongside Tripledacus and Tripredacus.

    Now to look for a C-25 Gimlet for the original launcher piece ...

    They were reissued as different factions, too. I think they were just meant to be different characters or something.

    Since the third one never came out it's a moot point since the two alone don't combine.
