    That moment when ur about to open a new toy can be a joyous time. Cut the tape, remove the card, and figure out how to transform it. But then you come to find that you're missing a major a piece.

    Ex: back near the end of the rotf line I decided to pick up rotf armorhide and to my surprise while transforming him into robot mode he is missing a forearm.. Such a letdown..

    Has something like this ever happened to you?

    It almost always happens to me with Lego's, but for those and Transformers, it's never happened. Oh, and NB4 Unicron.

    SG Drift today was missing one of his small swords. Kind of a letdown as I am not a big fan of the guns. Ah well, I have faith that the club will take care of it.

    My TFC Toys Targetroid Megatron came without a head. Luckily I e-mailed Toy Arena (where I bought it from) letting them know and they provided me a replacement head in a matter of days so that was a relief.

    Bought Generations Darkmount and learned that he didn't come with a head AFTER I threw the package and receipt away.
    And in first grade I got G1 Megatron with the gun barrel broken off in the package... My parents were not able to exchange it for two weeks and I ended up getting Soundwave. So technically he was my first transformer.

    Every time I buy a Lego set (or the Optimus Kre-O I just put together), I always experience one split-second where I am absolutely sure I am missing a piece. And I never, ever find the piece until I say out loud, "Oh fuck, I really AM missing a piece this time." Then, the piece pops back into existence.
