Hi there
Around a year before my book was published, I posted a limelight of my trilogo carded set with "only" one of each carded figure ( see here ).

Those who know me a little also knows that I have a particular attention for 'early' trilogos sold on the french market that differs from the common mass-production trilogo cards.

And so, during all these years, I have been (and still am) catching trilogo cards/bubbles variants which brings sometimes many cards of a same action figure;

As I promised on these boards many months ago, and upon general request, here are pics of my whole set including variants;

For more information about Trilogo cards variations and understand differences between cards & bubble variants, refer to this article in English or in French .

Long time Trilogo collectors will especially notice the high condition of the cards/bubbles
Figure variant collector will also notice some nice PBP & Trilogo specimens;

Stephane, simply stellar. I've seen some complete Tri sets before but never so complete. Have you any idea how many card/bubble/sticker/punch/etc. variants you are missing?

Every limelight you make makes me regret missing out on seeing your collection while in Paris even more. Another time. Hopefully that was NOT my last trip to that beautiful city.

Good grief that is astounding!

Dumb question time:

Why didn't they include the coins with the POTF TL figures?

Having read your fantastic book on the subject and interest in putting a set together myself(sans Madine and Jawa)one can only marvel at your truly spectacular achievement.


The sheer labour of love required to attain such a goal has to be commended.

Merci,tres bien!!!

Great Collection, Thanks for sharing!
Do you know if a Walrus man card exists with all three logos on it, or was it only on Palitoy cards?

Wow Stephane, no wonder things are going slowly on SW these days for you

There can't be much more for you to find. It's a crazy beautiful run, so much
to look at. You have to make a poster of the pictures so I can take a look at
them all at the same time without having to scroll down
Thank you so much
for sharing.

John
Several hundreds (I would say about 400+ moc to even come close to that = Mission impossible but Stephane is sure a good way there already)

Sorry Stephane

Holy toledo, I'm stunned.


I knew you have a large collection of tri-logo's, but I did not expect it to be THIS huge. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

Thanks John, but don't have any regrets, I'm pretty sure that the collection you visited in Paris was worth 100 times of incredible items
I wish I could have been there too !

But you -and others- are welcome to stop by when coming to Paris

Hi Mark, Walrusman is part of the very few cards that were not produced on Trilogos, even not a 70A card (palitoy front - trilogo back).

The Walrusman you see here is just a regular Palitoy 45-back card with Palitoy back as well, I just added this card to my collection because it has the palitoy front + large trilogo bubble (like the other 70A cards).

In fact, I don't think that is so much combinations, because there are some "patterns" that can be identified depending on the cards, which helps reducing the list.

For example, Leia boushh can be found with a special bubble or the large etched one, but I've never seen a medium or double-stem bubble and I don't think that exists.

Also, it looks like double-stem bubbles are mainly found among ESB releases and ROTJ 1st-wave (Ben being the only example I've seen among the SW releases);
POTF releases are only found with the large etched or large rounded bubble, with the exception of the special shapes, R2 saber and Anakin.

Of course there are still a lot out there that I know to exist but still looking after, and I also come across variants that I never thought to exist (ie. 21B with medium bubble).

The 'good thing' for me is that my set is complete and it's impossible to know exactly how many variants are still missing, so I'm not hunting for them, just grabbing them on occasions when I see them coming


My Trilogo cards/bubble matrix is a good way to start, it is also hosted on rebelscum ( HERE ).

YES! read the descriptions
That kind of packaging mistake is typical of the late French releases as well.

As you say there is alot out there. I know that most characters have at least 3 versions of the bubble, Then you have at least 3 different punch, 6 different printed cards (Pal/Tri Hybrid B and C and 2 different PBP/Tri Hybrids though few characters exist on these cards and the POTF cards).
But as you say there are some patterns to be found.
There are then a number of sticker versions.
Iam putting together a list of these cards and there are alot of them but it depends on how far you like to go!
I have Boushh with 3 different blisters and i think there is at least 1 more Boushh blister to find. Iam looking at atleast 7 different Boushh Tri Cards (Blister/Card/Sticker/Punch) to find and i have 4 of them now.

Best luck on the hunt and picking them up while you find them is the best way to stay sane
