|Return of the Jedi (2nd Photo) Ben Kenobi Cromalin|
|Featured above is a cromalin for the Return
of the Jedi 3 3/4" Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi action figure packaging. Kenner used two different Obi-Wan
photos for the Return of the Jedi blister card for this figure. The
first image was a carry over
from the previous Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back, while the second (seen above
in cromalin form) was utilized on Return of the Jedi and Power of the Force packaging.
Cromalins play an extremely important part in the creation of toy packaging. Notes are often found on cromalins to indicate changes that need to be made before the final version is approved. Suggested changes vary from piece to piece, but range from text absence, necessary color changes, etc. The picture clearly conveys the vivid colors exhibited on cromalins. The figure area of this cromalin has a "blue" notation scratched out, which likely refers to the color of said figure area.
