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 Chief Chirpa. For the Trilogo art, not much differs when compared to the original Kenner version. The image of the character is slightly recolored. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1983’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Chief Chirpa figure HERE.

If you still need the Walmart Exclusive 40th Anniversary Funko Pop Bespin 3-pack and Ewok 3-pack in stock they’re on sale for $16.99. Two great sets, especially if you’re looking for all the 40th Anniversary sets at a good price.
I had nearly forgotten about these Walmart Exclusive 40th Anniversary Funko Pop sets that we reported on previously in June, but JTA reader Justin sends us his find at his local walmart. After doing some digging, I found that these have just hit a few stores near me in NJ as well. Might be time to hit your Walmart if you’re a Pop fan! (or Ewok fan!). They are out of stock online, but here is the Ewok Set and Bespin Set in case you want to keep track!
