See How Much Better The TVC Paploo Looks With Kit-Bashed Parts

JTA reader JW was inspired by our article yesterday to Photoshop the newly announced Paploo body with the head sculpt and cowl from the 2009 Legacy Collection figure. We think it looks infinitely better. Hasbro captured the likeness of that Ewok well in 2009, and has more screen-accuracy than a repainted or tweaked Logray head sculpt. Click the thumbnail below to see what it looks like. The new figure has much too long of a cowl, and this one is shortened a bit. And don’t forget about that better likeness. What do you think? (We watermarked the image to let everyone know this is a modified image.)

Thank you for getting Paploo into The Vintage Collection, Hasbro. As one of the main Ewoks in Return Of The Jedi with tons of screen time, it’s awesome to get an update as well as another Kenner 96 release checked off in our collections. But as usual, you have some work to do. Click through for more.

1985 THE POWER OF THE FORCE Warok: 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 Warok. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1985’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE Warok figure HERE.

1985 THE POWER OF THE FORCE Anakin Skywalker: 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 Anakin Skywalker. This version features a revised image featuring all background details “blacked-out” or “removed” behind the character sketch. The Force spirit glow and forest details were removed in the Trilogo version. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1985’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE Anakin Skywalker figure HERE.

1985 THE POWER OF THE FORCE Romba: 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 Romba. Do you notice anything strange? The Kenner version of Paploo shows an image of Romba. And the Trilogo version of Romba shows an image of Paploo. (We should also mention that the Trilogo version of Paploo shows Romba as well, but the Kenner POTF Romba shows the correct character.) See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1985’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE Romba figure HERE.

Today we begin the final 15 The Power Of The Force figures uninterrupted! There weren’t any coins provided with the Trilogo versions of these figures. Let’s revisit Luke Skywalker (In Battle Poncho). It doesn’t vary all that much from the Kenner version See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1985’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE Luke Skywalker (In Battle Poncho) figure HERE.

1984 RETURN OF THE JEDI Paploo: 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 Paploo. Just like the Kenner version, the Trilogo card art also erroneously features a reference image of Romba instead of Paploo. Also, the name “pill” humorously has the subtitle of “Action Figure” added. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1984’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Paploo figure HERE.

Today we revisit Lumat. The Trilogo card art is nearly identical to the Kenner version. The name, however, is different. The Trilogo figure is called Lumat Ewok Warrior (Figurine Guerriere Ewok). See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1984’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Lumat figure HERE.

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….)

The Vintage Collection Wicket (VC27) re-release is an odd choice. But we’re thrilled to report it might be the best evidence of Phot Real deco in all The Vintage Collection. While imperfect, Hasbro got Wicket very close to screen-accuracy with updated deco focusing on the cowl as well as the figure’s fur and facial features. For The Vintage Collection “2.0” lineup, Wicket received a significant amount of updating. In our opinion, Wicket’s Photo Real deco is stunning. Star Wars collectors now have FIVE carded versions to track down of Wicket (VC27). We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 100-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2020) featured, comparison shots, diorama shots with Kenner’s Star Wars: Ewoks figures, and a breakdown of what separates the two releases in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.
