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 Teebo. The Trilogo card art has a different color palette when compared to the Kenner version. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1984’s RETURN OF THE JEDI Teebo figure HERE.

There are two other super-articulated action figures that longtime Star Wars collectors want to see released by Hasbro, and preferably part of The Vintage Collection. The first was supposed to be part of the 2012 Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] Ewok Pack, but Lucasfilm didn’t approve it because they wanted a friendlier face on Teebo. But this version is 100% screen-accurate. We also need Teebo carded for The Vintage Collection. The second figure is the canceled running change of the Legacy Collection Utai (BD41) figure, without headgear and came with a fuel filling device. Would you like to see either finally released for your collection?

I had nearly forgotten about these Walmart Exclusive 40th Anniversary Funko Pop sets that we reported on previously in June, but JTA reader Justin sends us his find at his local walmart. After doing some digging, I found that these have just hit a few stores near me in NJ as well. Might be time to hit your Walmart if you’re a Pop fan! (or Ewok fan!). They are out of stock online, but here is the Ewok Set and Bespin Set in case you want to keep track!
Walmart may be scalping their own stock of TBS6  Wave 2 for $46 each, but hopefully that won’t happen to these! Funko releases two new Pop! 3-pack Walmart Exclusives. The Ewok (Teebo, Chirpa, Logray) 3-pack and the Cloud City (Lobot, Ugnaught, Bespin Guard) 3-pack. You can find more info in Funko’s Blog.
