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 Dengar.
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 Dengar. Dengar’s Trilogo card art features a revised crop of the interior of the Executor. 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 Dengar figure HERE.

If your Amazon order was canceled, keep an eye out for the 6″ Dengar showing up at retail. JTA reader Jediscar found him at his local GameStop in Seabrook, NH. He also picked up the latest 5 POA wave at Walmart.
Much to my dismay, I found a lone 6” Dengar at Gamestop in Seabrook, NH. This just 2 days after Amazon canceled my order. Then I went next door to Walmart and found the new 5poa wave – Rio, Val, Beckett, Han (mud trooper), L3, ERG, Tulsite). Thanks for your great site!
We are receiving notices from readers that Amazon is canceling the pre-orders for Dengar because they claim they won’t be able to obtain the necessary stock to fill the order. Interesting. We have received over a dozen emails from readers alerting us to this.
We are rounding out our wave 19 Visual Guide updates from The Black Series [Phase III] with the addition of Dengar (74), the final bounty hunter from the infamous The Empire Strikes Back scene to be added to the 6 Inch line.
