To me it looks like a PBP / Clipper darth vader, cape looks real, I am not sure about the saber.

Many thanks mate i'm not sure about the sabre myself but looks like one i had as a kid. He was bought off a reputable seller though who said he don't like repro and i would hate it if it was it would be melted to liquid with my lighter. I can post some pics of my sabres later i have obi one and a farmboy to show if you could identify. Many thanks.

Here is a couple of the sabres i have for my vintage loose figs. Bit worried these are repros which i hate excuse the pics lighting they aren't as dark as this. Noticed that the farmboy floats and the other 2 sink straight to the bottom if they are repros then they will be destroyed by fire. Many thanks.

I am not sure about the sabers, I only know the ID the good repro if I have them in my hand. Have you used UV light on them to see if the glow in the dark ? if they do then they should be original :wink:

No problem, as you maybe know some original sabers sinks and others float so uv light is better :wink:

uvs dont always work on kenobis. the dark blue thick tipped one anyway does not glow under uv which can be found on trilogos. the skinny lighter blue one does glow under uv

Hi poncho can you tell anything by the look of those sabres if repro or originals. I've ordered that u.v light now just to test them.
