    I sent some parts to Darkov to have reproduced and the USPS lost them. I really wanted to help the fandom by allowing these to be repro'd, but now I just wish I had my parts back :(  I need:

    Lord Zarak head
    Brave Maximus Spike head
    launcher parts from G1 Onslaught

    I know this is a shot in the dark, but if anyone can help it would be appreciated. I am not looking to have them given to me, I don't expect that. But cutting me a good deal would be really appreciated. I was trying to help and now feel really bummed that my TFs are incomplete :(

    I've rarely had any problem with USPS, especially with small first class packages. Like I said, I'm not looking for charity. I'm willing to pay for my mistake, but any little bit that someone is willing to help means a lot. I tried to help others and am now about to pay for it. Oh well.

    You're missing parts? I guess that means that now you're not a complete idiot.

    Only kidding. Since they were borrowed in order to make repros, why not simply contact the person and see if he can make repros for you, since that was the purpose of the transaction in the first place? Sounds to me like an easy and effective solution.

    They were lost on the way, so he never got the chance.

    Anyhow, I don't want to violate any rules by letting this be a discussion. So if anyone can help, please shoot me a pm. Thanks for looking.

    Good news. The tracking number showed delivery on Saturday, but Darkov did not get them in his mail box until today. Most likely a kind neighbor got them in error and handed them back to the carrier for redelivery. Either way, the postal service screwed up and it got fixed today. So no more worries. I no longer need the parts mentioned above.

    Glad it all worked out. I've donated parts for casting in the past but none as valuable as yours are. Let that be a lesson to us all to use insurance. $1.75 can go a long way. Thanks for letting Darkov use those for the rest of the guys that need them. His work is awesome
