Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi - TBS [P3] - Titanium Series (02)

Remember how Hasbro treated 3.75″ super-articulated collectors when it came to celebrating the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope? The Titanium Series Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the ways to remember that nightmare. It was a disappointment on MULTIPLE levels. (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 Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi. Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi’s Trilogo card art features an alternate “portrait style” image of the character with a background of the Millennium Falcon inside of the Death Star. The artists at Kenner “airbrushed” the bottom third of the character and added a lit lightsaber that didn’t exist in the original publicity shot. Most of the background is “fake” and also part of the “airbrushing” technique of the early eighties. It was also used for the running change American Kenner Return Of The Jedi figure. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1978’s STAR WARS Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi figure HERE.

Review: Yoda (Force Spirit) - TBS6 [P3] - Walmart Exclusive

It looks as if Hasbro may have tricked Disney into letting them make a Yoda (Force Spirit) 6″ figure by referencing it as a character from The Last Jedi as evidenced by the name on the case assortment box. But this figure is definitely based on the Yoda from Return Of The Jedi. Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Review: Shaak Ti - ROTS - 12 Inch Figure

It’s a shame that Hasbro canceled their 12 Inch Figures line after they produced Shaak Ti. They ended the line with a bang, and this figure brought the line to a whole new level. It would have been great continuing it with this level of detail. See more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

The Star Wars [Saga – Phase I] 12-Inch Plo Koon figure goes for a pretty penny on the aftermarket. But that’s because many people didn’t know about it, not that it’s necessarily rare.
