Lego Errors: Almost as Painful as Stepping on a Lego Brick

photo(11)It was my five year old son who caught their first mistake. There we were, sitting on the couch, looking through his January-February 2013 Lego Club Magazine, when we came across one of two The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Lego ads.

Ridiculously proud of his new reading abilities, my son began sounding out the names listed that supposedly corresponded with The Hobbit Lego figures below. It was Bombur’s name, who happens to be his favorite character in the book, that my son chose to read first. However, when he went to match up the name with the character, something wasn’t right.

At first, I thought he’d just misread. However, upon inspection, I came to find he was absolutely right. According to the Lego ad, Bombur was now Bofur.

…and Lego’s mistakes didn’t end there. Ouch, Lego. Ouch.

How many mistakes can you see?

  1. Oh…. oh no. How unfortunate.

  2. Holy Moly! It’s riddled with them!

  3. At least they got Bilbo right?

  4. Oh my. My, my, my. Your son is a smart one to have picked up the errors that apparently everyone at Lego did not. Smart boy.

  5. Huh. Is the magazine over-seen by the Denmark headquarters? Could translations somewhere contributed?

  6. Is it THAT hard to tell Dwalin and Kili apart, Lego? *headdesk*

  7. I don’t think it was “Lego” that made the mistake but one person whom put that article in the magazine whom didn’t do adequate proof-reading.
