I went through a stage of buying quite a few bundles of figures from the US so it would more than likely been from one of those.

Its great to see another one of these, and its again a family III coo figure.
Im leaning towards it being a stamp error more than anything else.
@parra72 if you ever sell it please contact me, id love to see one in hand.

Doing a quick google search brought me to this thread tonight and I also rediscovered I was already a registered user as well! We also turned up a Darth Vader with this exact COO anomaly earlier this year. While ours didn’t have a saber, it has the provenance as I purchased it directly from the family member of a Kenner employee who would bring samples back from the Orient. Ours has a very thin, hand-cut cape and numbers under the feet which are visible with a black light. I also know of another example that recently turned up, also with provenance of a Kenner employee source, but also including a complete DT saber. I believe this is a prototype piece.

Funny you should post here (if your the same lemcool from RS) as I just sent you a message on RS about a you tube video that came up in my list of videos to watch.

As far as this Vader goes, I believe that they are preproduction too; however as I said earlier provenance is key. Some of these seem to have filtered out to random people coming from unknown sources. Since there is nothing to indicate on those figures (no numbers on feet, proto accessories, etc.) it is impossible for a grading company or individual to say they are anything other than a rare variant coo. At least in my opinion.

In other words from what I have read and through various people I have spoken to, without a kenner source there is no way to say with 100% accuracy that this mold did not get used for production even if for a very short time period.
