From my crappy pictures it does look like the Taiwan smooth transition Saber Wolff but the tip is actually the same thickness as the Ledy Saber Tip.

Hopefully this weekend i can add decent comparison pictures to this thread and the main TIG site i just need to nick my sisters camera lol

After reflection i have decided to just keep the Vader for my run.

Although its not to difficult to source a Boxed Classic Edition 4 Pack trying to find the figures loose, mint and complete is pretty tricky apparently so i kinda glad i've picked one up now Smile

I have the 4 figures from the potf2 pack loose (picked them up from an RS members for 15$). And i think the saber is the potf2 saber from the vader, it has the thicker saber tip and a more square handle... if you put this vader next to a vintage vader you'll see the figure is slightly smaller and also the saber would (to) easily slide through an real vintage vaders arm, try it.

I think you got a full potf2 vader for a pretty high price, but maybe the seller didn't know himself.

Cheers, Dennis.

For the POTF2 you only need a set of eyes lol!

The saber's hilt is a square as opposed to a curve. I'll search for a piccy
