Hi, new to the site so be gentle Smile

I recently got hold of a Vader Tie Fighter in a job lot of vintage Kenner pieces. It doesn't however have a LFL or year stamp, only Kenner Cincinnati etc. Can anyone confirm what year this is likely to be?

I'm hoping it's not a 90's reproduction but suspect this may be the case.

Thanks in advance.

The 90s vader tie fighter was a very different mold from the original vintage.

Vintage:  http://www.rebelscum.com/Kenner-V-TIEdv.asp

Potf 90's:  http://www.rebelscum.com/potf2dvtiefighter.asp

There might have been a later version that used the original mold but I don't study up on the newer lines.  It isn't uncommon for some vehicles to have different coo markings though.  Search for the Potb thread here and see if it has some pics of the various vintage ones.

Edit* here is the Potb thread. https://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t4137-potb-project-outside-the-box-your-one-stop-place-for-star-wars-vehicles-playsets-rigs-creatures-etc?highlight=Potb

If there aren't pics you might be able to pm Marco, or Aussiejames is another who might be able to help. Look also in the limelights and see if someone has a vader tie focus that may have good pics.
