Research Droids Reviews

Yawn. Hasbro made us wait so long for the Phase I Clone Trooper Lieutenant that we don’t even care about it anymore. Besides, the tooling is so old and tired now that the articulation system is terrible by today’s standards. Also, why did they give the packaging red color flashes? They used “yellow” for The Saga Collection for Episode II, and it made the most sense. What are they going to do for The Phantom Menace now? (more….)

Review: Jango Fett - TBS6 [P3] - Gaming Greats GameStop Exclusive

We finally get a 6″ Jango Fett figure with Photo Real deco AND the Mitronomon Z-6 jetpack. Does this excite you? Not only is this figure sourced to the Star Wars: Bounty Hunter video game, but it’s also sourced to Attack Of The Clones. (It should have been released along with Kit Fisto and Plo Koon,) (more….)

Review: Teebo (Ewok) - TBS6 [P4] - ROTJ02

Hasbro omitted a very important accessory with The Black Series [Phase IV] Teebo (Ewok) figure. Also, why did they qualify the character’s name with “Ewok”? Why is Hasbro so confused? (more….)

Review: Sabine Wren - TBS6 [P4] - SWR06

The newly-released The Black Series [Phase IV] Sabine Wren is almost like an all-new figure. Hasbro changed the paint operations on almost every part of the figure. Will you be getting the upgrade? (Psst. They finally got her skin color correct!) (more….)

Review: Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios - TBS6 [P4] - SWR01

Let’s look at the first ALL-NEW figure in The Black Series [Phase IV] line. Garazeb “Zeb” Orrelios was a long time coming, but the long wait was worth it. It’s an excellent figure! (more….)

In 1984, a new packaging design of Star Wars packaging 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 collectors to describe this line of figures.

Today we revisit Princess Leia Organa. Princess Leia Organa’s Trilogo card art doesn’t deviate all that much from the standard American Kenner release. The same reference image was utilized across all lines and card backs, although its placement varies a bit. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1978’s STAR WARS Princess Leia Organa figure HERE.
