1984 RETURN OF THE JEDI Prune Face: 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 Prune Face. The Trilogo card art doesn’t vary much from the Kenner version. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1984’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Prune Face figure HERE.

1983 RETURN OF THE JEDI General Madine: Trilogo Update

Today we revisit General Madine, which is the rarest Trilogo figure on the market. For the Trilogo card art, not many changes exist from the Kenner release other than a different wash. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1983’s RETURN OF THE JEDI General Madine figure HERE.

Today we revisit Admiral Ackbar. The first mail-away figure from the Return Of The Jedi line, not much changed from the 1983 ROTJ Kenner card art to the Trilogo card art. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1983’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Admiral Ackbar figure HERE.

Review: Admiral Ackbar - TBS6 [P4] - ROTJ01

We should have fallen in love with Admiral Ackbar, but we didn’t. It has a near-perfect sculpt, but the articulation is wonky, and the deco is off. Hasbro brought back that awful “open mouth” feature which means no head movement again. Also, why is the head so much darker than the arms? And the waist articulation makes it difficult to pose the figure. But if you just pose the figure out of the box, you probably won’t care about the issues. (more….)
