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 2-1B. Too-Onebee (2-1B) received a name change. But more noticeable is the significant orange wash the card art received for the Trilogo card back. 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.
