Whilst I was at a local builders merchants I got speaking to a guy who was very much a starwars addict and he claimed he had a very early darth vader which had a unique green light saber (Not DT). Do these exsist and are they hard to come by?
Or was he yanking my crank indy

To be honest I never let him string me along I just took it with a pinch of salt. But then afterward I thought about it and was wondering if there was any truth in it. I did suggest that he may have a repro saber but he never responded Laughing

Clearly none off you guys watched that 70's show, there is an episode where foreman lost his extremely rare and hard to find (yeah even in 78) darth vader with green lightsaber.

Besides in that episode the doesn't excist.

Dagobah fog it was. And that seller was a twit. "Thank you for the info. You know that information....and I know that information....but not everyone knows it. That's what I plan on capitolizing on Wouldn't be the first time either. I once sold an alonzo mourning "error" card that really was an error, but all that were produced were errors. The thing is, it was the only one listed at the time, so the $8 card sold for $150 - thanks in part to my wording of the description. Oh, and there aren't any circles on the handle....there isn't even a handle. Thanks a lot for your email and the info regarding my auction's infamy. - Jason"

Its also amazing just how many recards, fakes and repros out there that all apparently came from childhood collections as well.
