I just noticed that on the French Board game I bought recently "Escape from Death Star", the name of Dark Vador was written Dark VALOR.  lol! 
Maybe we could start a thread on those funny printing errors?  thinking

Some of the Heroes World ads had typos. They were often calling Han 'Hans', and sometimes Vader became 'Vadar'

Maybe "Gonk" is a driod term for "Charlie" and he spends his days aimlessly wandering calling out for it.


Anyone been "Flanking the Gonk".  Shocked  Link below.

While in Italy on holidays, I bought a few vintage Mickey magazines (Topolino) to look for vintage SW ads. I came across those one's. In the first ad promotes a C1-P8 from Harbert...wtf  lol!

Alex, I have these two Harbert ads as well, they're really cool. The Rancor one on the left 'borrows' the photography from Palitoy and still has the Coalville, Leicester copyright on it.

not really a printing error, nor and ad, but an extract from an early german catalog; I really love the names, like LORD Dath Vader and the trademaked name??? "soldat" (ie stormtrooper) as well as the prototypes figures!
