1982 THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 4-LOM: Foreign ROTJ Update

Today we revisit 4-LOM. 4-LOM wasn’t part of the Trilogo line. We’re showing one of the foreign Return Of The Jedi card back instead. 4-LOM was a late release in 1982 because it was first offered as the line’s mail-away figure that year. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 4-LOM figure HERE.

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 Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot. Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot comes with all-new card art based on a film-ou from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. See the full Trilogo card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot figure HERE.

The Vintage Collection Wicket (VC27) re-release is an odd choice. But we’re thrilled to report it might be the best evidence of Phot Real deco in all The Vintage Collection. While imperfect, Hasbro got Wicket very close to screen-accuracy with updated deco focusing on the cowl as well as the figure’s fur and facial features. For The Vintage Collection “2.0” lineup, Wicket received a significant amount of updating. In our opinion, Wicket’s Photo Real deco is stunning. Star Wars collectors now have FIVE carded versions to track down of Wicket (VC27). We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 100-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2020) featured, comparison shots, diorama shots with Kenner’s Star Wars: Ewoks figures, and a breakdown of what separates the two releases in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

1982 THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Zuckuss: Trilogo Update

In 1984, new packaging for Star Wars figures was introduced for the European market.

Today we revisit Zuckuss. Zuckuss has card art that’s nearly identical to the Kenner release. See the full Trilogo card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Zuckuss figure HERE.

Today we revisit Bespin Security Guard [B]. It didn’t come in standard Trilogo packaging. Instead, it was packaged in what the collecting community deems as “Trilogo Hybrid” packaging. The card front is nearly identical to the Kenner Return Of The Jedi Bespin Security Guard [B] figure, while the back features the Trilogo logo and figure group shot. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Bespin Security Guard [B] figure HERE.

Today we revisit C-3PO (Removable Limbs). C-3PO (Removable Limbs) doesn’t vary all that much fro the original Kenner release. Eventually, the name of the figure was changed to See-Threepio (C-3PO) (With Removable Limbs), but that took some time. See the full Trilogo card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK C-3PO (Removable Limbs) figure HERE.

The crop of the character is also different. See the full Trilogo card art and additional notes by revisiting 1981’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 2-1B figure HERE.

Today we revisit Leia (Hoth Outfit). Leia (Hoth Outfit)’s Trilogo card art features an alternate image used nowhere else in the classic toy line. Finding a high-resolution version of it is next to impossible as well. It’s one of the rarest film-out images in the Lucasfilm archives. They also changed the character’s name to Princess Leia Organa (Hoth Outfit). See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1981’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Leia (Hoth Outfit) figure HERE.

Today we revisit Lobot. Lobot’s Trilogo card art features an alternate image used nowhere else in the classic toy line. Interestingly, Lobot is out of focus in the utilized image. Lando Calrissian (off-screen) is the character in focus in the uncropped film-out. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1981’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Lobot figure HERE.

Today we revisit Bespin Security Guard [A]. Bespin Security Guard [A]’s Trilogo card art is unique because it’s a hybrid. The front of the card looks like a standard Trilogo Return Of The Jedi figure, while the back shows all of the figures in the Trilogo line. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting the 1980’s STAR WARS Bespin Security Guard [A] figure HERE.

Today we revisit Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues). Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)’s Trilogo card art is a significant departure from the American Kenner packaging. In fact, no other vintage Star Wars card art utilizes this image except for the Trilogo version. It features an alternate take (and different pose) of the “close up” shot Kenner utilized for the running change image, and it’s also flipped 180 degrees horizontally. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting the 1980’s STAR WARS Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) figure HERE.

Today we revisit Rebel Soldier (Hoth Battle Gear). Rebel Soldier (Hoth Battle Gear)’s Trilogo card art doesn’t vary all that much from the 1980 Kenner release. The biggest difference is the revised character name. The Trilogo card back refers to this character as Rebel Soldier (Soldat Rebelle). The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting the 1980’s STAR WARS Rebel Soldier (Hoth Battle Gear) figure HERE.

Today we revisit FX-7. FX-7 ’s Trilogo card art features a horizontally-flipped image of the character against a revised starfield gradient background. The character’s name also changed, as Kenner and related companies dropped the “Medical Droid” subtitle. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1980’s STAR WARS FX-7 figure HERE.
