Vintage Trilogo Sy Snootles and the Rebo Band (European Version)

October 30, 2011

Trilogo packaging was introduced as a way to reduce costs, since it would allow the same product to be sold in several different countries, without requiring that packages in different languages be created. Some of them even ended up being sold in the US for bargain prices toward the end of the end of the lifespan of the Kenner toy line. They weren’t very popular with US collectors for quite some time, but now they are somewhat sought after. The site Trilogo.info is a good source for just about everything about these toys.

When I got this in the mail I was quite surprised how small it was, since I only had experience with the US version which is quite (some would say unnecessarily) large — see below. I believe the figures themselves are identical to the US versions. As you can see, the packaging is quite different, with the European version featuring a large photo of the toys, and the US version showing the toys themselves under clear plastic.
