    hey all,
    My son lost the missle for his Cybertron Supreme Starscream. Does anyone have one they don't need? There's gotta be someone out there that doesn't need/want the missle. :)  I can pay through paypal, or possibly trade. I have an extra Vector Prime missle, and some misc g1 accs. Let me know!

    Matt

    ...I highly doubt he wants to teach his child the path to thievery.

    (Sorry to derail, but this was too much to pass up.)

    Grave, you could contact Hasbro and see if they'll allow you to send it back for a replacement (and since it's a brand new figure, I can't see how they'd have a hard time replacing the entire unit, accessories and all.)

    Or (and this sadly goes in step with what Ninja offered, and I absolutely don't condone this...) return the one you have, in pack and all, tell them the item was missing and you want an even exchange. Problems are: You have to hide this from your child, and whoever else buys your old one gets screwed, so it's just passing the buck...

    Hopefully someone can help you, or Hasbro can do something.

    how dare you!! nah just joking

    I auctally was just gonna post your idea in contacting Hasbro for another missile. Hasbro might be able to replace it.
    They once replaced my wholeTrasnmetal Megatron Dragon for a new MISB cause mine was missing some amor plates on his neck. And last year a user told me Hasbro gave him a 20th prime blaster.

    or u can return it for a exchange and say it was missiing the missle. All the store will do is get credit from Hasbro for another Screamer

    I'll probably try to see if hasbro will get me a replacement, but more then likely, i'll probably end up buying a 2nd starscream. I can't go the "buy, take missle, return" route. I'd feel guilty. :)

    Hasbro will most likely give you a replacement missile, I lost one of my armada Unicrons missiles, and I asked them if they could replace it for me, and i didnt expect it to work. Then about 3 weeks later, i got a package with 4 unicron missiles in it, I was so happy. And if you dont want the SS without the missile, well, keep in mind that Im here for you :thumb  :D

    Matt, I just went to the hasbro website, and looked to see if you could get replacement parts for transformers. I know that you can do it with alot of other toys, but apperently not with transformers, so I emailed hasbro for you and this is what I said:
    Recently a friend of mine got a Transformers Cybertron Supreme Starscream and his son lost the missile. I went to the place to order replacement parts, but there wasnt an area to get replacement Transformers parts. Im wondering if I should return the Starscream to the store and say its missing the missile and get a new one, or if theres another way that I can get a replacement missile.

    Ill let you know what they say when they answer me.

    They don't have replacement parts. They'll ask for the entire figure back and will replace it either with the same one, or something of the same value. Since he's a new figure, should be an even exchange.

    I dont find anything wrong with that!
    Take it back, tell them it was missing the missles. They will ship it back to the company and get there money back for it. I do it all the time! :D  well not all the time..

    Actually, they don't ship 'em back for credit. They put 'em back on the shelf. This is where "passing the buck" comes in.

    Yup, just as stated. Gotta ship the entire unit (packaging and all) back to them, at your cost, they will replace the entire unit and ship it back to you in about 3-4 weeks. It's on their end that I can't remember if you pay or they do for shipping...for the life of me, can't remember.
