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.
