7 Age Warnings ................................................8 Logos...........................................................9 Country Of Origins

 

Here are a number of hi-rez details from the Argentinean Card, starting with the company logo. (slightly touched up)

 

 

Here is the "Regreso" logo without the flamboyant "Guerra de las Galaxias" around it as you saw in Mexico. This makes the Argentinean logo quite unique, despite many similar elements found on other cardbacks.

 

The confusing presence of the logo is not really explained in this text. It is interesting that the try to explain the link between Top-Toys and Kenner where other cardfronts (like PBP's) just include the Lucasfilm Copyright information.

 

 

 

Here is the back of the card. This has long been hailed as one of the most original cardbacks in the vintage era. Though it uses the many new elements, it is in many ways a throwback to toys from the era of the original film.

The Luke and Leia image next to the logo has not appeared since 1980. Nor had the double racetrack, which was replaced by a single racetrack (or no racetrack at all). Most obviously we also see the first usage of the 12-Back drawing since 1979! The fact that all the figures featured were not available seems to have been of little importance.

Because these toys were (presumably) the introduction of Star Wars toys to Argentina you see a lot of explanations about the characters and the toys. They have to let everyone know that "All have moving parts."

The lower section is not dedicated to offers, play sets, or copyright info like you see in most other cardbacks in this tour. Instead we see this photo of other toys that were available. I find the description of Lando "el amigo de Han Solo" to be the most interesting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note also that the toys are identified as being a part of "Industria Argentina." It is quite evidently as regional of a product as you could hope for from a Star Wars toy molded in Cincinnati.
