1984 RETURN OF THE JEDI Lumat: Trilogo Update

In 1984, new packaging for Star Wars figures was introduced for the European market. A cost containment initiative, the new packaging sported three languages of the Return Of The Jedi logo for a “one size fits all” approach. Although a “three-logo” design was created for The Power Of The Force line (as evidenced on some ‘boxed’ toys), it wasn’t carried over to the basic figure line’s card design. They continued to use the three Return Of The Jedi logos instead. Although the word “Trilogo” is found nowhere on the packaging, the term is universally adopted by all Star Wars collectors to describe this line of figures.

Today we revisit Lumat. The Trilogo card art is nearly identical to the Kenner version. The name, however, is different. The Trilogo figure is called Lumat Ewok Warrior (Figurine Guerriere Ewok). See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1984’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Lumat figure HERE.

Marvel Comics Cancels The Rise Of Skywalker Comic

Comic book adaptations of Star Wars movies have a long tradition. But it seems The Rise of Skywalker may get no comic book adaptation from Marvel. Marvel has canceled the #1 issue of The Rise of Skywalker which was originally meant to be released in June, before the pandemic. There’s still a chance Marvel may release a trade paperback with all five planned issues later, but there is no official word about that yet. For now there will be no Marvel adaptation. IDW however are releasing their own comic book adaptation of The Rise of Skywalker, so the movie won’t be the only Star Wars movie without any comic book adaptation at all. But IDW sells a lot less comics than Marvel or DC and their release won’t be as high profile as a Marvel version.

A Look At The Updated TVC Boba Fett Card Art

Instagram user SWTVC posted an image at the upcoming running change for the The Vintage Collection Boba Fett Card art. Thanks to those that wrote in to let us know this has leaked out! Remember, the previous card art made it to production, so this will be a running change. 

note: until this is officially announced, take this image as rumor. One weird issue with the image is the reflection is reversed.

You have to wonder what happens at Hasbro’s Product Development meeting. Do they pitch ideas based on what’s popular and sells? Or are they so far behind with playing catch-up for being ill-prepared with The Mandalorian, that everything is getting pushed to the backburner? Think about it.

Hasbro designs a multipack including a trio of Cantina aliens or Jabba’s aliens. Check. Classic vintage Kenner packaging. Check. The first run sells out in no time. Check. Hasbro solicits it once again due to its success. Check. Hasbro never produces another set like it again. Check. “We seem to be made to suffer. It’s our lot in life.” Check. (more….)
