I've noticed a few like these:



I assume maybe the set was renamed at some point so the aka can just go? :-)

    The AKA comes from the UK catalogues. 99% of the time they gave sets different names to the US names in the 80s and 90s.

    ^ Sure, it's definitely interesting to see that the names sometimes varied wildly as every marketing department could do their own thing.

    But there's also a lot of sets where there's no AKA noted, which is fine if it either does not differ or is unknown; but here, isn't "Huw, also known as Huw" a bit superfluous? :-)
