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 Yoda. Yoda’s Trilogo card art features an alternate right-facing image used for the running change American Return Of The Jedi version of the figure. The name of the character was also changed to Yoda, The Jedi Master. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting the 1980’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Yoda figure HERE.
