So as I was checking Goodwill's site this afternoon I came across 12 seperate auctions for the first 12 figs MOC from 1977. I was stunned they were given away and wanted to lose my lunch when I noticed Luke and Darth could both be Double telescoping figures. Ben's saber is not visible. Please look for yourself and tell me that I am crazy. I really hope I am. The figure is at $1000 right now with 48 hours left . (shopgoodwill.com/auctions/1977-Kenner-Star-Wars-Darth-Vader-Action-Figure-19780767.html?adcode=suggested)  If you have the cheddar and you see what I see I would grab it up. I cannot post links for 7 days so just add the www's and let me know what you think. Cheers!

I am still studying the figures and am convinced they are legit. After all the years I have collected and searched...to think people just give them away!

For all of the members outside the U.S Goodwill is an organization that helps the needy and less fortunate. All items are donated I am not trying to push any type of auction. I just need someone to let me know if that is in fact a DT Darth. It is driving me crazy trying to figure it out.

Ok I have answered my own question. The back of the card has the directions of how to use the lightsaber clearly making this a DT saber. I joined this site to hopefully get my answer. Do yourself a favor and look at this thing it is the real deal. I sadly do not have the funds to buy it but my God why would someone just give it away!

Taking a look at the figure it does indeed appear to be legit. However, IMO, it does not look like a Double Telescoping saber. Normally when you see the DT sabers the thin "tip" of the saber appears much shorter than it does on this figure -- it should look rather like how it appears on the backer board. This looks like a nice, solid, Type "A" backer board carded figure. The instructions noting how to extend the saber are typical of this card whether it has a DT Saber or not.

Wish I had the fundage for something like this too!

Cheers, and welcome to the board!

Dave

Thanks so much for the reply Dave! I am in the process of trying to convince my wife to take a chance on one of these. The saber seems to have the clear distinction of the 2 seperate parts but I know it is easy to get confused. There is a Ben as well, his saber just tastefully out of sight enough to keep his price under $600! Just keep in mind where these are located is within commuting distance of the old Kenner in Cincinnati. These auctions may cost me my marriage haha.

Looking at the pics last night I am very certain it isn't. The saber tip would be pushed up further. This just looks like a regular Vader MOC. Granted it's an A back though, so that's good!

Hi,

I would have to agree with the others here that they are just regular 12 backs, but nice ones. You would be a brave man to wager your marriage on them being DT saber versions Smile

Cheers, Jared

Thanks so much for the replies. I am just sick thinking that people can just give 12 of these figs away but thankfully after your more expert eyes let me know it wasn't a DT saber maybe I will just grab up the Ben instead. cheers
