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 Emperor’s Royal Guard. For the Trilogo art, not much differs when compared to the original Kenner version. The image of the character and frame is repositioned a little. The name of the figure changed to Emperor’s Royal Guard (Garde Royal de L’Empereur). See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1983’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Emperor’s Royal Guard figure HERE.
