So I bought the new Halifire droid set,

I noticed that one of the tan battle droids has a serial number across the waist - I have 130 Battledroids and none of them has a serial number printed on them, is that a production glitch?

Anyone else ended up with one?

Sorry no pics - cant zoom in enough....
It's all part of the plan....

Sounds to me like you probably got a Quality Control production sample by accident.

If you have 130 droids already, I'd totally hang on to it and keep it as a unique curiosity  :wink:

Here is a picture I found on brickshelf, you can see the number on the leg piece, evidently its fairly common with the Halifire droid set

Alot of my droids have that. At least  50 out of the hundred.

There are actually 2 Trilogies(not LOTR though)

Note: I am a LOTR fan too, just though this was funny.

Yes, I just checked the droids in my Hailfire set and they all have the number.

Its odd...because they have DIFFERENT numbers, that means they used many different molds (at presumably great expense) I wonder why....?

I think each mold space has its own number for quality control reasons. That way if is a run of defects is found they can go to the exact mold space and investigate. Looking at other pieces that are indentical and from the same set I can find similar things. For example in my hand I have 2 2x4 bricks. One is 3001 13 230 and the other is 3001 5 224. The first piece has the molding injection mark...

All my droids from the Hailfire set have that. I checked a few other droids, all they say is LEGO.
