    One of the manuals for #31034 Future Flyer had a couple pages missing, and instead it had repeated pages for others.

    Maybe it's because I'm not really a Star Wars person, but I see nothing wrong with that picture. It's all perfectly do-able.

    @Paperballpark

    It's torso is the wrong way down.

    @TarDomo The right arm is also upside down, the thicker clip is supposed to be the one connecting to the torso.

    Yep, they miss out step 3.

    I don't think that clone is really a printing error when it still looks the same in the before and after.

    @bobabricks Right. I was so upset about the torso fail that didn't notice that.

    My instructions for Benny's spaceship had a problem - not an error with the instructions, but more of a mishap with the ink, it seems:

    @benbacardi Wow, I had a little black spot on the last page of my book 1 but definitely not that big!

    I contacted customer service and they sent me a replacement - I'd also built the White House in the Architecture range that same week, and had to request a replacement for those instructions too - half the pages fell out the minute I opened the booklet :(

    I'm just about to start building this set =\
    What should I be looking out for when I get to this?
