    Normal warp speed wear and tear. 
    Argh! You beat me to it! I saw that a couple days ago at B&N.

    Yes, I could see the number on the box. I could also see other pictures of that set's box and it doesn't have that render f'up... :-)

    Edit: oh, I see it on the picture on Brickset's #70821 page indeed. Still that's just a failed box render, unless someone saw this on an actual box, which would mean Lego's QA Team is just as good as their [email protected] Team.

     That is a pic of the one I bought and the other ones in the store had the same error lol(I'm here at B&N hoping the Overwatch sets would be out but alas, no dice)

    @Pumpkin_3CK5 I've seen the overwatch set at B&N, and Walmart. Happy hunting

    @gmonkey76 They do have it in stock but I guess the one by me is following the street date. They usually don't, so hopefully they don't start now lolz

    Ouch. I guess they really did outsource rendering to the [email protected] team :| Wonder if they've noticed it after a while as I've seen other -rendered- box art pictures without the issue...

    Noticed a bit of an error in the instructions for #75933





    This seems to imply that there are two baby Dinos, one in bag 1 and one in bag 3. There is (unfortunately) only one - which is found in bag 1.

    I just noticed that in #79100 Kraang Lab Escape Mikey is wearing the wrong legs in the main image. He should be wearing bright green legs but has regular green ones, presumably from a different Turtle. It is more obvious in the [email protected] image with a white background but after seeing it you can tell the box art has the same issue.

    ^ I'd say that the vertical sides of the legs are just more in shadow than the slightly sloped curves of the arms and torso which catch the light more. Parts of the body look the same colour as the legs. Plus all four turtles are the same colour anyway (I think).

    Nope, in the TV show based sets, Michaelangelo and Donatello are Bright Green, while Raphael and Leonardo are Dark Green (classic green). That said, I do feel like there isn't a really noticeable color discrepancy between the torso and legs in this set, either on the box pic or the out-of-box pic. I suspect it's just shadows.

    I think something is going wrong with this Rexcelsior! engine...

    Not so much an error, but a difference between box art and instructions:


    Box art shows the mug on the left and cookie on the right, instructions shows them the other way around. Possibly because otherwise the minifig would not be visible in the shot...
  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 1,346
    ^ That happens a lot...

    ^ I get annoyed when they do that. What is the 'correct' way of building the set? (Just my insecurities showing up).

    The instructions need to be clear, so accessories sometimes are placed differently. Have you noticed how many minifigures are apparently left-handed? (Let's start a conspiracy theory about this!) ;)

    I wouldn't call that an error any more than showing a minifigure holding something in the instructions but not holding it on the box art. That "error" is meant to be a little tray with coffee and a cookie on. It's meant to be taken off and moved around.

    Which is why he said, “Not so much an error, but a difference...”

    This is the case of the Ship in a Bottle build. The box art has the bottle facing to the right with the base at the left. However, the instructions have you build it the other direction. 

    I ended up having to reverse it so it matched the box art because my brain was going to explode.
