What a disappointment! Hasbro FINALLY gets Nien Nunb out to the public again, and it’s still too short, and they neglected the dark pink mouth paint operations once AGAIN! What’s up with this incompetent design team in Rhode Island? Anyway, check out the new version. It comes with less paint and a Return Of The Jedi 40 logo. We took the time to summarize all the new details for you by producing an all-new 68-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2023 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this anticipated figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

You have to wonder what Hasbro’s defect is anymore. We’ll be charged with nitpicking here by the Hasbro sycophants and bootlickers, but we demand quality. And we’ll go public with our disdain regardless of the ramifications. How could they not correct and properly update Nien Nunb before announcing its re-release? Not only did they neglect to correct the figure’s height. (Nien Nunb is tall like the Sullustan B-wing pilots and not short like the action figure. Photographic evidence exists and proves this unequivocally.) But even worse, they didn’t bother to fix the figure’s upper lip with the darker brown color.  (more….)

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 Nien Nunb.

1983 RETURN OF THE JEDI Nien Nunb: 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 Nien Nunb. The Trilogo card art is much lighter and washed-out when compared to the Kenner version. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1983’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Nien Nunb figure HERE.
