    Mislabeled prop : (

    I was at the Museum os Science and Industry today and I got to see the "Where science meets imagination" Star Wars show! It was such a great time. There wasn't quite as much stuff there as I had really hoped but all in all, it was a wonderful time.
    Something I noticed while I was there; No statue of the Boba fett(oh well), but most of all his blaster rifle was improperly labeled. It was the ROTJ but was labeled as "Boba Fett's blaster from The Empire Srikes Back." I nearly fell over when I saw it! I assume this is an overlooked detail but it still is such a shock to me considering the MAJOR differences between the two blasters.
    Anyone else notice anything like this or am I really the only one that anal about something like this?

    PS I still had a great time.

    Hmm, I've ben to that exhibit a bunch of tiems and never noticed it....
    Must be because I was rushed along. I was a costumed character trying to check it out before the public got to it and I felt pressured to hurry along.

    That is what Non SW fans and temp workers get you when setting stuff like this up.

    c'mon guys, lets be fair to these people that are setting up the displays. don't forget that george lucas himself would probably get even more wrong. remember the answer he gave when questioned about a twi'lek. his response, "what's a twi'lek?"

    yeah, we're the only nut-jobs that know all this stuff

    when the exhibit first opened in boston, the stormtrooper wasn't even assembled right! note the ab plate OVER the chest armor...



    but they got it fixed after a week or so

    i'm surprised that they haven't gotten enough complaints to get a new sign for the fett gun after all this time!
