PostSubject: LILI LEDY VADER SABER WHITE PROTOTYPE TEST SHOT   Mon Sep 23, 2013 11:58 am

There's a LL Vader Saber offered as a prototype / test shot.
I used to have one like that, (on top):



When I got this saber I thought it was some sort of variation, now I know it's not, it is a faded, discolored saber, take a look:

LL Vader Sabers tent to fade due sunlight, if you leave them for a long time under the sun they will fade. I don't know if this effect will take years, days or months but sunlight affects this LL sabers.
Here's another example:

On this picture you can even see how the saber was affected only on one area.

So, if you come across one of these remember, no prototype or test shot. Just a discolored LL Dart Vader saber.

Cheers
Ozio

Could it just be a mould purge?

Thanks very much Ozio. So the saber is still a genuine saber, just not a prototype as there are no repro LL sabers out there yet?

Thank you for confirming that Ozio. I've just seen that saber (with Vader) on eBay UK & assumed it was faded.

It's Mr Ledy's avatar.

Mattais has one as well & I've seen one sell on ebay. The theory is it's just uncoloured plastic sent through the mould. Not pre production, not degredation just a factory oddity.
