Thanks Ran across this figure and was trying to see if I could confirm
Whether this is a Lili Ledy Figure with this limited info. 

Thanks

I would appreciate any help with identifying this saber.  I think it may be a Ledy saber.  These are the only photos that I’ve been provided.   The owner says he can’t see a COO. Hopefully the photos load properly this time. 

Thanks
Jedijoe

Are you trying to verify just the sabre or both Darth Vader and the Sabre?

The sabre tips looks fatter like the ones from Mexico. Try comparing with the photos here Darth's Sabre on TIG

Lili Ledy made Darth Vaders  for both Mexico and Kenner distribution; so not sure if both figures are the same.

I thought if I could identify the saber than I can roll the dice on the figure also being Ledy.  I thought it would be easier to identify the saber since the photo of the coo is indistinguishable.

Thanks for the link. It was after reviewing those sabers that lead me to the conclusion that this may be the thick tip Ledy saber.  Do the Ledy sabers have letters on their hilts?  I’ve been unable to identify the letter that appears to be on this saber. 

Thanks,
Jedijoe

The saber does look like it is the Made in Mexico/Ledy version with the thicker tip.

Can't offer any information on the figure though. Good luck!

Yes, that's a "Made in Mexico" figure - and that's a really nice example too, often the saber discolors with stress marks between the tip and main saber, and the chest paint is also a give-away for a well played with figure but yours is great!

Here's some pics of my carded version of your figure below for comparison of where your figure very likely came from:

The key features of the Mexican made figures are :
1) the "thicker tip" saber, clearly that's one of the more obvious differences.
2) the paint on his chest - the red "buttons" are more of a line with no separation
3) the "mouth" is less defined and deeper than the regular Hong Kong figures - I wont go into the "Made in H vs HK vs Taiwan" but essentially the mouth shape is different on the Mexican made figures.
4) and their capes are smooth both sides (no zipping sound as you run you finger nail "gently" over it, like the HK ones do)
