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 Princess Leia Organa (Boushh Disguise).
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 Princess Leia Organa (Boushh Disguise). For the Trilogo art, the color has been darkened a bit. Also, they changed the character’s name to Boushh. Other than that, 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 Princess Leia Organa (Boushh Disguise) figure HERE.
The Toys R Us exclusive Princess Leia (In Boushh Disguise) & Han Solo (In Carbonite) 12 Inch Figures set is pretty nice and holds up well today. See more in our Research Droids Reviews today!
