A photo of the back of the box of Black Series Rey has appeared on the internet. And the short blurb about D-O contains some VERY badly translated German text. Which makes you wonder if a) no one at Hasbro can speak and write German or b) they use Google Translate instead because they are lazy. Let’s hope this error has been corrected for the regular edition boxes, because it’s kind of embarrassing to read something that almost sounds like your average auto-translated manual for some cheap Chinese electronics product.
This is the German text translated back into English, so you know what I am talking about:
Assembled from junk in the workshop of a droidsmith, little D-O is an impressive little roll which is fixed to BB-8.
The proper German text should read something like this
Der aus Resten in der Werkstatt eines Droidenschmiedes zusammengeflickte kleine Droide D-O ist ein leicht beeindruckbarer kleiner Roller, der sich auf BB-8 fixiert.
Hasbro, you may use this text, free of charge. I am like that! But maybe you can send me some free figures every now and then? Buying everything full price in Germany is kind of expensive, you know… 😉
Are there any Spanish, Portugese or French speaking people who can check if the other languages feature a correct translation?
Let’s hope the other boxes are free from any translation errors.
