The German Lego catalogue for the second half of 2020 contains several instances of a confusing statement on page 125:
Jedes Set enthält die detailgetreue Nachbildung einer original LEGO Star Wars Minifigur.
Each set contains the detailed replica of an original LEGO Star Wars minifigure.
This statement (that appears twice on the same page, once related to a minifigure of Leia Organa, once related to one of Luke Skywalker) leaves me utterly confused:
- What is special about these figures?
- Don't all the sets contain LEGO Star Wars minifigures?
- Aren't all of them "original" (because they're produced by LEGO for the Star Wars product line)?
- Then why are these figures "replicas"? What's the difference between a minifigure and a replica of a minifigure if both are (presumably) produced in the same factory, using the same moulds?
What is that statement supposed to mean?
