Robocop 2

Continuity mistake: When RoboCop is being scraped up against the wall creating a shower of sparks, we cut to views of Cain. In one of these shots of Cain, the background suddenly changes - the wall he's scraping up against is nowhere to be seen and the sparks vanish. In the other shots of Cain, the background is correct. For some reason, a shot was taken from another part in the sequence and added in here, creating an odd continuity gaffe in the background. (01:02:02)

Suggested correction: This is not correct. When they show the interior shots, you can see the red brick wall out of the window.

This correction is untrue. You can find the scene on YouTube (look up the video "Robocop 2 (6/11) Movie Clip - Demolition Ride" and pay attention from about 0:55 - 0:58), and the background is definitely totally different - different type of brick, graffiti is missing, there's no sparks and it's in the distance. The original mistake is correct.

Continuity mistake: When the mayor turns up at the steelworks to speak to the boy about getting money, the limo has square headlights and white-walled tires. Cut to a few scenes later when Robocop 2 has already turned the limo over, the headlights are now circular and the tires are all black.

Question: When RoboCop is at the hideout, we see several "artifacts" (like the skeleton of Elvis). As he leaves, the camera focuses on something and pans up on it. What is it suppose to be?
