Go Home Artoo, You’re Drunk…

So I decided I’d build a newer Star Wars set and review it. I haven’t done a set review yet and I figured I was long overdue. I opened the box, as one does, dumped out bag number one onto my tray and the very first part I grabbed for assembly was that familiar 2 x 2 dome. I slapped it on the droid body and started to attach the legs as I looked the new mucked up print over and something seemed off.

As you can see, the print on Artoo’s dome is off by quite a bit and to me it creates a look that makes him look as though his dome is askew. From some disastrous injury or a little too much hot oil, if you know what I mean.

Now, while I like this look I still would prefer to have a proper print, so I intend on calling LEGO Shop@Home for a replacement. I have hundreds of minifigures and droids, maybe thousands (low thousands at least) and I think this is the first time I’ve ever gotten one with this noticeable a misprint. If you’ve ever gotten a disfigured or misprinted part and didn’t contact LEGO’s customer service, I strongly suggest you do. The very few times I’ve ever had to call, they’ve been incredibly helpful and it’s important for LEGO’s quality control statistics.

But for now I will just enjoy this slightly tipsy little trash can that managed to totally derail any chance of me doing a review of the set. I don’t even remember the name of the set now. Yoda’s Hut? Dagobah Swamp Training? I dunno… How’s THAT for first impressions?

Well played, trash can.
