Vintage Darth Vader figure, removable helmet??

Postby subzero » Fri Sep 08, 2017 2:05 pm

Doing a little toilet reading this morning 8) with the Action Figure Archive book and in the modern section with a removable helmet Vader it clearly states Kenner made several early attempts to produce one before the 90's.

So surely then there must be at least one proto vintage figure out there somewhere?, what do you guys think?

I'd love to know if one exists, I can only image how desirable and valuable that figure would be.... :shock:

Never turned up, could be in a black hole collection but in 25 years I've never seen or heard of one surviving.

That would refer to Kenner Green cards and Red cards 1995 ???
But when reading it again it does sound like an attempt in the 80's.

Would be cool if something like that turned up. Article does read like Kenner was trying it for the original line - maybe didn't make the cut for the last 17 range? Wonder if the source for that story could be found to follow up on?

Actually not a bad idea, I don't think I would want to bother them though with a fanboy message lol, but one day I might end up getting tempted.
