With the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens quickly approaching, we bring you a selection of the best goofs from the previous installments.

From clumsy Storm Troopers to changing faces, these mistakes show how even the smallest errors can be picked up by fanatics.

A word of warning to J.J. Abrams -- make sure you'r extra careful in the editing room!

1. Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)

Due to the lightening quick reflexes needed to operate the pods, which travel of up to 900kmh, all podracers apart from Anakin are non-human. After successfully completing the pod race, a young Anakin Skywalker is lifted in to the air.

Delighted at finishing the race in which many lose their lives, Anakin shouts "Mum, I did it! Yeah!" However, in the film, he says this before his mouth actually moves.

2. Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)

When Anakin and Obi-Wan are tacking assassin Zam Wessel, they follow him to the stylish Outlander Club in the district of Coruscant. During the scene when Anakin is walking through the bar, his Jedi braid, which is on the right side of his head throughout the movie, appears incorrectly on the left hand side.

Although, perhaps, he just had one too many and tied it the wrong way?!

3. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)

In Revenge of the Sith, the character of Nute Gunray looks significantly different from previous the previous two prequels.

The Neimoidian, who Yoda referred to as a "coward with powerful allies," also sounds different in the film.

4. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)

After losing the battle on Mustafar with Obi-Wan, Anakin attends the medical center ready to be placed into his bio-suit and transform in to Darth Vader.

In the first shot, the main part of the mask is clearly being lowered into place, and Anakin does not have a neck section for it to connect to. In the next side shot, we can then see a neck brace which has appeared from nowhere.

5. Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)

A mistake in the original Star Wars, which has since been acknowledged by George Lucas, shows a storm trooper bang his head on the door.

Watch the video above to relive the moment and chuckle.

6. Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

In the scene where Luke cleverly uses a thermal detonator to take down an ATAT, a stick is seen poking through the ground.

The stick then prods the ATAT's back leg, which causes it to topple over.

7. Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)

Only the eagle eyed viewer may have picked up on this one...

When attempting to turn Luke evil and join the "Dark Side," we see various shots of Darth Vader's helmet, which constantly switches between clean and dusty.
