I found this on the weekend.  It's from the Canadian 77 backs.  I'm not sure if this is a spelling mistake or just an odd Canadian spelling.  My lovely wife (who is a teacher) agrees that it is a spelling mistake.  I did try to look it up in my dictionary and online. Can anyone else confirm the spelling of Catapult in Canada or is it another case of someone at Kenner Canada with fat fingers when typing?

The French/Canadian spelling is below the image CATAPULTE, so it indeed looks like another error immune English text. Good spot!!

And yes it's a spelling error. That is one of the common misspellings of catapult most pronounce the "A" as in "ALT" not "ULT". And this is from a Newfie no less, My fellow Canadian members and possibly a few more will get that lol

First Post on this Forum and I can see I have a lot of reading to do...Thought I'd just add that I had my first droids C3PO and only six months ago did I find that his arms and legs come off!

Not about figs but Something I didn't know until I read the original star wars costumes book, was that child extras were used in the background of the Empire Strikes Back Hoth Hangar to help achieve forced perspective. They are dressed in full rebel gear but for kids.

* Speeder instructions: Do these have any special codes on them in the corner or are they just any Bi logo instructions?

The instruction leaflet was revised with a part number added to the lower left corner on the front cover copyright notice on the reverse was tweaked. More surprisely though is the reversed artwork on the centre pages.

Trilogo poster, there is only one version of this.

I btw disagree on Yoda! Of course if your are right handed you have your walking stick in your left hand....so you can do things with your right hand.....am I wrong???


You hold the walking stick on the side of your weakest leg. So Yoda must have a gammy left leg. Very Happy
