Star Wars

Picture added by Super Grover

Continuity mistake: After the Stormtrooper tells Darth Vader the Death Star plans are not in the main computer, when Vader lifts the Rebel off his feet by his throat as the Rebel tells him they intercepted no transmissions, take note of the leg plates on the Stormtrooper to Vader's right. In the wideshot, the Stormtrooper's left leg armor does not have the knee protector plate (it looks as if it's at his right knee because the extra switched them), but in the next closeup the knee plate appears at his left knee, as it should be.

Suggested correction: The perspective of this comment is incorrect. The trooper behind the boots of the lifted character is the one pointed out in the first image. You can't see his knees.

The correction is simply wrong. This is quite clear when watching the scene. The Stormtrooper who as is stated in the correction, "behind the boots of the lifted character" is only blocked in the provided screenshot, and we do actually see his legs in the shot. He is standing in the doorway (to the left) with a dark hall behind him, and the other Stormtrooper with the problem leg plates is standing beside the tall console (torpedo shaped) near the doorway to the right. When the Rebel tells Vader, "We intercepted no transmissions," we see both Stormtroopers and their legs, then in the next shot as the Rebel continues, "This is a consular ship," we see the legs of both Stormtroopers, and the one on the right has the continuity issue with the leg plates.
