Super happy to finally get a vintage "Tri Logo" Boba Fett, which is now the jewel of my collection.
Here's a couple of Fetts from my collection:
From left, a Kenner made in Hong Kong, Kenner made in Taiwan, and "Tri Logo" on the right.
"Tri Logo" is sort of a misnomer. After ROTJ the SW licensed European toy companies sold their overstock on packages with text in English, French and Spanish. All loose European produced SW toys are usually called "Tri Logo", even if they weren't from that series, because they all look the same.
You can't really tell in the picture but this version is cast in a lighter grey plastic, and has other paint differences, and has the country of origin stamp on the leg removed from the mold as do all the "Tri Logos".
He isn't really rare, but is sought after by variant collectors and I've had few opportunities to get one, especially at a decent price. They should really only be worth $5 to $10 more than a Kenner one in comparable condition. But the popularity of the character typically has retailers charging double value for even a Kenner and I've seen one of these in only slightly better condition sell for like a hundred dollars.
Don't get ripped off! With the exception of a couple early production accessories that were later changed, no out of package standard production vintage SW toy is rare and they should not cost 100 dollars.
This concludes today's History Lesson.
Spread out all around us is a petrified world, a world of Things, where we ourselves, our gestures, and even our feelings figure in as Things. Nothing can belong to us as truly our own in such a landscape of death. Under commodity occupation the most concrete truth about everything is the truth of it's infinite replaceablity.
