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 IG-88 (Bounty Hunter). IG-88’s Trilogo card art is quite a departure from the American Kenner packaging. The Executor background is completely eliminated, and in its place is an all-gray backdrop. Also, they dropped “Bounty Hunter” from the character’s name. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting the 1980’s STAR WARS IG-88 (Bounty Hunter) figure HERE.
