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.

Review: Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper) - TVC - VC169

Well, color us surprised. Hasbro redid the Photo Real application on this Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper) figure. We had no idea they intended to update it with any changes at all. It’s an excellent 3.75″ super-articulated action figure. We have a definitive version of this character finally. Are you repurchasing it for your collection? (more….)

Review: Power Droid - TVC - VC167

It only took 41 years! But Hasbro finally got it right! The Lars’ homestead EG-6 Power Droid is finally released and part of the wonderful The Vintage Collection. An original Kenner 20-Back, Hasbro maintained its original name and card art. It’s also the final 1979 figure to be designed/released. The bottom line is that It’s BEAUTIFUL. In retrospect, the Power Droid was so simple to produce. You have to wonder what took them so long to make it. (more….)

1979 STAR WARS Power Droid: Harbert Update

In Italy, Star Wars figures were released under the Harbert company label. The name of the line for the first Star Wars figures there was called Guerre Stellari. The card back didn’t vary all that much for the ones produced by Kenner, but there are obvious differences as you inspect and compare. Featured on 20-Back, the reverse side of the card features the same toy images in colored blocks made famous by Kenner, in addition to a few other related toys, including the Millennium Falcon and the X-Wing Fighter among others.

Today we revisit Power Droid. The figure wasn’t made available in the Trilogo line, so we’re representing it on the Italian Guerre Stellari packaging for our update today instead. Note the alternate card art, exclusive to this packaging. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1979’s STAR WARS Power Droid figure HERE.

1979 STAR WARS Snaggletooth: Trilogo "Hybrid" 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.

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 Snaggletooth. 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 Snaggletooth figure, while the back features the Trilogo logo and figure group shot. You’ll notice that the card art for this version is significantly “darker” than the first STAR WARS version. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1979’s STAR WARS Snaggletooth figure HERE.

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 Han Solo. Han Solo’s Trilogo card art features an alternate image of the character with a background of the halls of the Death Star. For one strange reason or another, Kenner neglected to finish the image below Han Solo’s wast, resulting in a “pink underwear” reveal. The artists at Kenner “airbrushed” the bottom half of the character 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 Han Solo figure HERE.
