1984 RETURN OF THE JEDI Rancor Keeper: 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 Rancor Keeper. The Trilogo card art is different than the Kenner version, with the most notable difference of the light blue background. The figure’s name was also changed to Rancor Keeper (Gardien du Rancor Monster) for the Trilogo release. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1984’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Rancor Keeper figure HERE.

1984 RETURN OF THE JEDI AT-ST Driver: 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 AT-ST Driver. The Trilogo card art is one of the few figures from the Return Of The Jedi line with a completely different reference image. It features a scene from the Battle of Endor with an incomplete composite from second and different film-out. The “incomplete scene” was obscured by the figure’s placement in the bubble. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1984’s RETURN OF THE JEDI AT-ST Driver figure HERE.

Review: Chirrut Îmwe - TVC - VC174

Is this Chirrut Îmwe from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, or is it Otto The AutoPilot from Airplane!? We’re not certain. Chirrut Îmwe should have been a slam dunk/hit-it-out-of the-park perfect action figure, but we think it lacks in some important ways. (more….)
