Last week I came across 6 Darth Vador in baggies. Since one DV was broken, I decided to open the bag to take a closer look (curiosity kills the cat. lol! ..). I wonder if anyone knows why the baggies have no brand or COO stamped ? And if the DVs are Clipper or Kenner???? They are stamped ©️ GMGFI 1977 and COO removed (scar) on the left leg. No other stamping. I made some pics! Can anyone help identifying them? unsure

I will just sit and wait to see what the vader experts write to you popcorn

Sorry I can't help you with the question.

Great lot of Vaders you got there Jedi, that broken one is one of the Clipper variants, can you tell me if they all have the same chest paint job? I'm not sure why there's no markings on the baggie but think it's the ESB-H and I dont think they ever do have info, could be wrong on the baggie though.

Thanks snaggletooth for confirming Clipper; the DV have all the same chest paint job and same mould. Thanks for the info! I have indeed another Clipper DV in a mail away box with a different chest paint.

Your welcome mate, I can't work out links on my phone but have a look at the vader thread, 3rd down in the contence and reference section of the site. I have 2 different chest paint jobs in this COO, was just wondering how rare it was. Would be good to know if both paint variants came with both Clipper COO's

I believe that's the Clipper. From what I know, Clipper mail away boxes contained both Vaders in unmarked baggies, as well as "Made in Macau" baggies. The saber looks like a Clipper, and you should also be able to tell by the cape, it should feel different than a regular Kenner, almost kind of leathery, and I believe is usually a little longer than the normal Kenner.

Super cool score, anyway!! Very Happy

Would you like to do a trade on one for a different baggie?

I had a sealed Clipper Vader & I want to say that the baggie had no text either. I had mine awhile ago so sorry for not being able to more specific.
