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 begin the final 15 The Power Of The Force figures uninterrupted! There weren’t any coins provided with the Trilogo versions of these figures. Let’s revisit Luke Skywalker (In Battle Poncho). It doesn’t vary all that much from the Kenner version See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1985’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE Luke Skywalker (In Battle Poncho) figure HERE.
