In Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2,

Yondu has at least 3 fins, including the one that Nebula shot off, the prototype with which he was cremated, and the one that was given to Kraglin after Yondu died. If these three existed, no doubt Yondu also had others.

Where did Yondu get his fins? And why didn't other crew members steal them?

Where did Yondu get his fins?

Since the Yaka Arrow is Centaurian in origin, I think it can be assumed that Centaurians design and build the fins. Since Yondu is the only Centaurian we've seen he either had backups, or the new prototype was one of his own design.

And why didn't other crew members steal them?

As we see with Kraglin, it takes time to learn how to master the arrow. And I'm sure Yondu isn't above killing whomever tries to steal it. And because it is challenging to learn, maybe most people don't want to bother.

I heard it said once:

Ancient weapons and hokey religions are no match for a good blaster at your side. - source unknown

    @onewho I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around the city, keeping its speed over fifty, and if its speed dropped, the bus would explode! I think it was called "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down." Jun 8, 2017 at 16:02

  • Hmm. I thought it might have come from one of the recent Chinese Space Opera shows/films -- sounds rather like ancient Han philosophy, to me.
