Looking for help with collecting.

Hello

I know it is kind of rude to ask for a favour on your first post but I have specific collecting requirements. I really like the displaying side of collecting minifigs.
I bought an R5-J2 on the aftermarket and the printing on the head goes all diagonal. 
I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to give the code from the back of the instructions from set 9492-1 so I could contact Lego for a replacement head.
Sorry to be super cheeky but I really like my collection to look as good as it can because I use it in photography.
Thanks for reading.

Stretchy

    Does Lego replace printed piece from that long ago?  I have always wondered how this works with older sets.

    Probably not, and especially not likely from a licensed theme.

    It's always worth a try.  The worst they can say is 'no.'

    Thanks. I thought they might say no but I thought I might try since it's still a manufacturing error, albeit an old one.

    I know but to get a replacement head I would the number from a physical copy. Lego use it as proof of purchase. But I only purchased the droid not the set.

    Are you sure it's an authentic piece? A phony Chinese copy would have bad printing. Printing errors are rather rare for official lego (depending on the part) and can sometimes increase value.

    Nearly every droid Jangbricks gets in his reviews are printed wonky.

    Yeah, I have had quite a few droid head misprints.  Are you telling me I am rich?!  :-P
