Review: Boba Fett - TBS6 [P4] - ROTJ06

There is quite a bit of talk surrounding the “squished” helmet of The Black Series [Phase IV] Boba Fett (based on Return Of The Jedi). Yes, collectors shouldn’t have to remedy this unfortunate packaging issue, but it’s not the end of the world. Check out our 72-image gallery of this fantastic 6″ figure. (more….)

Wow. If Hasbro didn’t do anything right for The Vintage Collection for the rest of 2021 (which is likely at this point), we probably won’t care. Boba Fett (VC186), based on the character’s appearance from Return Of The Jedi, is the best 3.75″ super-articulated action figure of the year. It’s that good. 177 TVC figures separate the first ROTJ Boba Fett from this one, so we waited a LONG TIME for this update. Oh, and it has one tiny issue. Do you know what it is? Check out the rough gallery and the final review. Some updated images coming soon!! (more….)

1985 THE POWER OF THE FORCE Yak Face: 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.

We are finishing the Trilogo line up with the final 15 The Power Of The Force Kenner figures, and there weren’t any coins provided with them. Today we revisit Yak Face. The Trilogo version has a darker wash. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1985’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE Yak Face figure HERE.

Review: Boba Fett - Mission Fleet

Hasbro thinks they outsmarted kids when it comes to the Mission Fleet line, but what they didn’t expect was for adult collectors to fall in love with them instead. This line is amazing. And you’re going to love it too. The Boba Fett release is outstanding. But please remember, this is for 40 and 50-year-olds, not kids. (more….)

1979 STAR WARS Boba Fett Redux: 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 Boba Fett. Boba Fett’s Trilogo card art features an alternate image of the character featuring his appearance from Return Of The Jedi, specifically during the Battle of Carkoon. For one bizarre reason or another, Kenner opted to finish the lower half comprised of Boba Fett with a hand-drawn lower body mixed with airbrushing. You’ll notice the extra-long cape and how “fake” it looks. The artists at Kenner “airbrushed” the bottom half of the character because the original reference/publicity shot features Boba Fett only from the waist up. They also changed the angle of the character’s blaster rifle to not interfere with the figure’s placement. This card back design was also used for the running change American Kenner Return Of The Jedi figure. Also of note is the figure’s paint job. Although they didn’t make the costume screen-accurate to Return Of The Jedi, the jumpsuit is a significantly lighter gray/blue for this release. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1979’s STAR WARS Boba Fett figure HERE.
