Hi, guys my name Chad been a long time dbz fan since 96, I have many different dbz collectables old and new. However I had stored away one of my favorite pieces, and now have been able to make room for it. It is the old Frieza spaceship that would light up and shoot foam disks. This piece means a great deal to me because of where I got it and I'm trying everything to make it 100% again. One of its pods well actually 2 of them or broken and the small plastic piece that holds them on to the side is no where to be found. Its not really that huge of a deal but to me it matters alot. When I stored this I wasn't aware of anything damaged or missing. I am just wondering if by chance anyone has any extra broken pieces or any spare parts for this toy. Here are some photos of the toy and I have a picture of one of the broken pods along with the a pod that isn't broken with the piece I'm missing. The Toy
It will be hard to find parts for this since it was released only in France (and I think in Brazil or something). You'd have to ask on a French forum and I doubt you'd find the parts either but it might be worth a try. You would probably just have to find a way to fix it yourself.
I don't think you'll ever find replacement parts either unless you buy another one just to steal parts from.
What you could do is make the missing piece from a piece of clear plastic trash. A hand soap bottle...plastic packaging... or if you're really lucky and resourceful, perhaps you have a model car kit that had all of the model pieces on those skeletons you have to remove them from and you still have the skeleton for the clear plastic headlights... and maybe the skeleton is the same size as the missing piece.
You should not use super glue, nail glue, crazy glue or anything similar on that transparent plastic or you risk permanently fogging the plastic. You could use epoxy, as it is clear, and the loctite brand I know from ten years of experience eventually yellows to a similar color as that plastic. Epoxy looks similar to hot glue, but is extremely strong when mixed in a very exact 50-50 ratio. You can sort of sculpt with it with a toothpick, but not much. It takes at least 5 minutes to dry, so plan ahead. You'll likely be holding the two pieces together as it cures. Hot glue would not work at all. Gorilla glue might, but it dries darker than that and isn't as transparent.
Of course, I can't guarantee their formula hasn't changed in the last 11 years... it probably has. If you want it, you could buy the last of my 11 year old epoxy from me for little more than the cost of shipping. It's still good; I still use it, but the tubes are almost completely empty... well... one is, and since it has to be 50/50 the other one having more in it does nobody any good. There should be plenty inside them to do this job. I know for a fact that it eventually turns transparent yellow after a few weeks/months. You can have it for $3.50 (which will cover the ~$3 shipping) assuming you're in the US.
