Is the trick that the card is titled "Max Rebo" not "Max Reebo"?

If so, you did confuse me for a moment. I couldn't find "Reebo" on scomp.

I believe I have found the trick.

Looks like the online image says "Leader of The Max Rebo Band"...

...but physical copies (some or all?) say "Head of The Max Rebo Band"

It seems that Max Rebo should have an AR Appendix A entry with the correct lore. I don't know whether the decision will be to use the "Head" lore or the "Leader" lore.

I suspect that Decipher had the leader version in their online card list and that got passed around to a variety of other websites and applications.

How did that even happen in the first place? Well, I think any explanation falls into one of two categories:
A) At one point Max Rebo was going to be a leader, then Decipher removed leader and changed it to head on the printout, but forgot to update their online image.
OR
B) Max Rebo was always head, but there were plans to upgrade him to leader, but then those plans didn't make it to the printing press in time. The online image was mistakenly updated to leader by someone who thought the change was a go.

No matter how we look at it, I think it's fair to say that the printed card is the card, and the online version is in error. The only thing that would change my mind would be if there are a mix of leader Max Rebo and head Max Rebo cards out there. But as far as I know, everyone's Max Rebo card says head.

Therefore I am now feeling pretty confident that Max Rebo will be ruled not a leader.

I would argue that he should be a leader, despite the lore (in the same way that Dash is a Corellian, etc). After all, if you aren't the lead jizz-wailer, the view never changes.
