Variations and Errors

I've added this section for those on the hunt for the special pieces.

These pieces can have errors or variations.

What are errors and variations ? These are misprints in the names, or different colors for the same piece, or something else, but always different from the original piece.

There also have been rumors about certain pieces having complete different colors, but these were never found, e.g. Logan with blue pants on.
