Mistake At The Star Wars Exhibit

Star Wars, Lucasfilm, Lucas, Lucasarts, Boston Science Center, U.S. Space & Rocket Center.

That ought to be enough key words to attract the people I'm looking for. Hey, Boston Science Center guys, you have a big, glaring mistake in your Star Wars exhibit. I'm surprised Lucas sanctioned this exhibit with such poor attention to detail. The placard next to Han Solo's costume states it was worn in Episode IV, but the costume on display was the one worn in Episode VI. Is your color blind, lighting guy, your curator too? See below for a comparison. The image on the left is from Episode IV. Note the blue pants and red stripe. The one in your exhibit has brown pants with a yellow stripe. This color scheme was worn in both Episode V and Episode VI. However, the costume in the exhibit contains a vest, which was only worn with those pants in Episode VI.
