Same color? If so that's possibly the luckiest error I've ever heard of. Part isn't even missing, just missorted. :P
I'd still rather not run into broken bricks, but glad Lego seems to always do right by me when it happens.
Recently, I needed to rebuild the ship after an overenthusiastic parent was 'taking a look' at the bottle, and when I did, all 5 of these clips were broken. It has just been sitting on a shelf until that point - not under stress, and my dad didn't tread on them or anything.
Lego CS replaced them without any quibbles whatsoever, but I thought the issue had been eradicated by the time this set was out?
So with #21313 Ship in a Bottle released in Feb 2018, it's possible/likely it has the old, problematic version of this part, depending on the seal codes on your set. Do you still have the box to check those seal codes?
Meaning your set was packaged during the 49th week of 2017 (04-10 December) in the Kladno factory (Czech Republic). The parts in the set will have been produced earlier than that, so prior to the fix.
Seems like they should be kept somewhere more obvious.
2nd on this, since the parts replacement departments are usually not as swamped now as they are compared to Jan/Feb as everyone opens up the LEGO they got as presents.
It looks like they used an older figure for this (red spaceman). Wonder if the new figures (plastic) can handle such temperatures.
