Glitches in Lego promo materials: 9443 Rattlecopter and 10188 Death Star

No idea if anybody ever noticed these before:

There is a curious artifact in a promo picture of 9443 Rattlecopter: funny black patch of what looks like a cropped stud above the right engine exhaust holding the two flick missiles. The glitch can be found on promo pictures on the Lego website, here on Brickset, and even on the product box back.

Ok, boring maybe.

The one with the Death Star is slightly more hilarious: Check where Darth Vader is located in the Death Star 360° view on the Lego shop.

    Have you never heard of the Force? Or is it done with magnets :-)

    I was just wondering what force must have possessed the 3D modeller. ;)

    This one's kinda boring, but it looks like the sticker is really badly applied on the front of 7050 Alien Defender http://www.brickset.com/detail/?set=7050-1

    it's not promo materials...but Grand Moff Tarkin's name is spelled wrong on the Death Star box...I'm sure I'm not the only one to notice

    Darth isn't floating, he's hanging on for dear life to the docking hook for the tie fighter because it left without him.

    That reminds me of something I noticed when I first saw this set and thought, hmm, a bit slack the shields aren't even straight.

    In 30087 (came with today's Sun), the model on the bag is assembled incorrectly: According to the building instructions, the wheel arches should "look" backwards, but in the picture, they face to the front.

    I just assumed the dragon knights were a bit ramshackle, as opposed to the more regimented lion knights.
