DT Vader / Uncut Saber

Postby phreatobite » Tue Sep 20, 2016 9:19 am

Apologies if this has been raised elsewhere? But isn't this just a stretched saber?

The problem about this for me is that it really does not look like a stretched tip. There is simply no way a tip could be stretched that far and still maintain the same thickness.

I don't know about the seller, but I'm pretty sure this is not just a stretched tip.

7th and 8th photo down in the description clearly show its flattened in order to stretch it... or are you being ironic?

No I wasn't, but I see what you mean. Good eyes mate.

I actually have a 'long' tipped loose Vader - not that long, but its definitely an oddity. Not worth $3.5K though either!

Cheers,
Pat

For fear of too much inuendo... dare I ask for a pic of your long sabre Pat? I'm a big fan of factory oddities like that.

I moved 12 months ago and I haven't had a chance to set my collection up properly yet. I'll see if I can't pull him out near Xmas and take a photo for you.

Assuming Vader DTs used the same mould as Luke's there is no way this is 'uncut' as that is not how they were moulded.

I do not believe they are uncut James. That simply doesn't make sense.

I'm not sure what these are. Possible an oddity or maybe they are just stretched. They are not an uncut DT though. Definitely not.

This picture always makes me weak at the knees :shock: If I remember correctly, didn't they sell cheap for what they are? Also, didn't he have multiples of these? for some reason I have the sum of $10,000 in my mind?...

:shock:


Bill Mcbride's comments on the ungraded item on ebay " FAKE WARNING:
I've had quite a few people contact me on this, and I wanted to make a general announcement for everyone here.
This is nothing more than a standard saber Vader, that has had the tip stretched. The piece, as advertised, does not, has not, nor will ever exist. It's a 100% fan created piece - end of story.
Bill "

I trust his Vader knowledge over UKG but wonder how Steve? at UKG decided the item above is a factory produced 'error' ??
