    So here's the story:

    Three years ago, I bought a huge lot of TFs on eBay from one of these companies that sells your stuff for you. There was a LOT of rare stuff in there, some Botcon exclusives, Japanese rarities, etc. Well, a few were missing pieces, and conversely, I ended up with accessories to figures that weren't actually there. A few days after I got these items, this same eBay seller put up another huge lot of rare figures, some of which matched up with the stuff I'd gotten in the first lot. I wanted to bid, but I was too depleted from the first purchase. I always meant to contact the winning bidder of that lot to see if we could trade parts and incomplete figs, but I had things going on and got sidetracked.

    One of the parts I received (for a figure I did not get) was a large right fist to the yellow "Matrix Glow" Ultra Magnus:

    I know it's been 3 years, but I'd like to see if I can locate the winner of that second lot if he/she is on these boards or if someone here knows that person. As only 800 yellow Magnuses were made, it shouldn't be too hard for an owner of this figure that's minus one fist to step forward if they linger here.

    I really want to hear from this person specifically, and not from random people that might want to make me offers for the fist for whatever reason: someone out there is one piece away from completing an extremely rare figure, and I want to help that person out if I can. Not to mention that this person possibly has some of the missing parts to my figures that I've not been able to find elsewhere (like BW Burning Convoy and Metals X-9 Jaguar/Ravage).

    I have the name of the eBay user I bought from, and I remember some of the figures that were in the second lot that the Ultra Magnus was probably in. Furthermore, I know some details about the person who owned these figures and why they ended up in the hands of a "We'll sell your stuff on eBay!!" company.

    If you're this person, or if you know him/her, please shoot me a PM.

    I am missing a fist for my Shining Magnus but sadly it is the left fist. No joke. I got it from Ultraconvoy but I knew it was missing the left fist.

    I can't believe that more than 1 of this figure is floating around incomplete! Shame... but still, I'm enviois of you and anyone that has one of these, fist or no fist.

    Very possible. Still, I'm going to bump this thread on and off for a while to see if they show up. If not, I may just sell/trade it to anyone missing a fist for this figure...

    Perhaps you could include a shoutout in your sig, works better than a bump imho. I have advertised for Unicron's wing connectors and have gotten great help on the boards here! :thumbs2:

    This. Definately will help more than a single thread, IMO. :)

    I hope you find the person. It would be really cool if you guys could give each other the missing pieces after all of these years. Good luck in your search :)
