So far, if I can recall correctly, I had a missing longbow from the Elf and two missing katanas from the Samurai.
The samurai is only supposed to come with one katana. Unless you mean you were missing two katanas from two different samurai
? In that case, that's a huuuuuge disappointment.
Were there any "extra" pieces in place of the missing ones? Often when a part is missing, there will be another part mistakenly added in its place, hence why the weight check doesn't catch that something is missing. My younger brother encountered a quite egregious example in a certain BIONICLE set
, where one of the silver shoulder armor pieces was replaced with a red 1x4 brick!
So far I haven't had any collectible minifigures with missing parts, but then again I'm not an army builder so I might not be buying them in the same quantities as some other people here. I had thought the lack of reports of missing pieces in Series 3 and onward meant that weight checks had gotten more precise (which would also explain the lack of extra pieces in those series, since they wouldn't be as necessary to ensure a complete set), but now I'm not so sure...
