An Alpha Team set from my grandma was missing an arm piece, or something like that. I had to order a replacement, I think.

This happened to me a few years ago, but I don't remember which set it was(maybe a Glatorian set?).

I've never had this problem with any of my Lego set purchases, however i did get an extra bonus. When i first bought Inika Matoro, the canister came with an extra body piece, the big silver one that connects the arms and head together.

That's weird. According to LEGO, they check the sets by weight to make sure they have the right amount of pieces, and that piece is a big one (meaning the sensor would probably notice it). Cool, though.

Yeah, I thought that as well and I was very surprised seeing it in there along with the other one. It was also unusual seeing a lot of silver in a set that was meant to be mainly white.

Not sure how many of you remember a Bionicle tub with Nokama, Nuju and 3 Vahki in it? I got that and it was missing a socket piece so one of the figures couldn't be completed.

My aunt one time bought me a red vehicle creator set that you could make multiple models out of when I was 6. Unfortunatly it was missing a flat black 2 by 6 piece that was used in every model so I just used it for parts until I got another set years later that had that piece I needed.

Don't think so. I always get spare parts though, and that's good.

Yes, but to be honest, I don't remember what set it was, as it was a while ago. Also, it wasn't that big of a deal, as I had the few pieces I needed as spare parts and I was able to build it like it never happened.
