Review: Lando Calrissian - TVC - VC205

Wow. The Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian is a nearly-perfect action figure. Sure, it has some imperfections, but you probably won’t care. You won’t want to miss this one for any reason! (more….)

I forewarned you to pick up The Original Trilogy Collection Lobot (OTC #20) figure because I knew Hasbro wouldn’t include the awesome accessories that came with the neo-classic figure. Get him now before he’s gone forever. You’re going to want that space-aged laptop and communicator, trust me.

Welcome to another entry in our The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Hasbro recently committed to collectors that they will be “focusing” on characters in The Vintage Collection that fall under “The Ninety Six” banner. If you’re new to this, it means that there needs a modern counterpart for every classic Kenner figure. Between 2020 and 2021, Hasbro’s made an admirable effort by focusing on these characters. But there is more work to be done, and we’ll figure out where we are step by step. Today we assess Bespin Security Guard [B].

2020 has come and gone, and that’s good for many reasons, of course. But it’s bad for others. One reason in particular that it’s not good is because of how Hasbro treated The Vintage Collection for The Empire Strikes Back’s 40th Anniversary. (more….)

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 Bespin Security Guard [B]. It didn’t come in standard Trilogo packaging. Instead, it was packaged in what the collecting community deems as “Trilogo Hybrid” packaging. The card front is nearly identical to the Kenner Return Of The Jedi Bespin Security Guard [B] figure, while the back features the Trilogo logo and figure group shot. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Bespin Security Guard [B] figure HERE.

1981 THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Lobot: 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 Lobot. Lobot’s Trilogo card art features an alternate image used nowhere else in the classic toy line. Interestingly, Lobot is out of focus in the utilized image. Lando Calrissian (off-screen) is the character in focus in the uncropped film-out. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1981’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Lobot figure HERE.

1981 THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Ugnaught: 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 Ugnaught. The Ugnaught’s Trilogo card art features an image with a lighter color scheme. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1981’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Ugnaught figure HERE.

Today we revisit Bespin Security Guard [A]. Bespin Security Guard [A]’s Trilogo card art is unique because it’s a hybrid. The front of the card looks like a standard Trilogo Return Of The Jedi figure, while the back shows all of the figures in the Trilogo line. 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 Bespin Security Guard [A] figure HERE.

Today we revisit Lando Calrissian. Lando Calrissian’s Trilogo card art is notably different than its American Kenner counterpart. The image of Lando Calrissian is horizontally flipped and they added bright orange flooding of light that covers most of the character, presumably to imitate the reflection of the orange Bespin sky. 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 Lando Calrissian figure HERE.

Today we revisit Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues). Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)’s Trilogo card art is a significant departure from the American Kenner packaging. In fact, no other vintage Star Wars card art utilizes this image except for the Trilogo version. It features an alternate take (and different pose) of the “close up” shot Kenner utilized for the running change image, and it’s also flipped 180 degrees horizontally. 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 Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) figure HERE.
