There is no respect for spelling and grammar anymore and as one that makes his living with words I find it distressing and sad. It's gone the way of writing and mailing actual letters, civility and manners. I guess I'm an aging dinosaur and the time will come when people like me are gone and it won't matter anymore. I guess it'll be okay because no one will remember a time when little things mattered. They won't know what they're missing.
    Sadly, I think in many cases (not this one) it is actually an issue of people simply not knowing HOW to spell properly. I had to cut way back on my Facebook usage because it was driving me crazy. After that come the people who are either too lazy or apathetic to care

    The worst example is spelling errors on billboards. I feel really embarrassed for those folks!

    Btw, thanks for giving us the official spellings. I was beginning to wonder...

    I think it is because they have him standing at an angle in both shots. Maybe?

    Yep, Scriptor to the rescue.

    Anyway, the part that matters, the FIGURE, looks pretty nice. Well, as nice as a space scuba diver can look. He's an important character but a pretty weak concept... they did what they could!

    Don't worry everybody makes a mistake. Nobody's perfect. I just wish people around here knew that.

    They're also written in the style of the copy on the old school packaging. The last sentence of the Two Bad bio is terribly clumsy, but it's straight from the back of Two-Bad's original card.

    I have to agree, it REALLY annoys me when I see spelling and grammatical errors from people who are supposed to be journalists. Yes we are all human (you made a mistake Jack spelling 'for' and fir' ) but when you are in journalism as a writer and having an editor, there is no excuse for the terrible mistakes I've seen.

    Are the bios not created using a program with a spell check function? Obviously words describing characters, their worlds, etc., are going to be more tricky, but a word like Lieutenant? Hmm...

    A lot of times these promos have used the prototypes for the pictures. I won't believe what he looks like until a review or a ebay early "release".
