Good Morning All:

I just managed to find, what I think is, a DT lightsaber Vader in the wild and would like some advice on if it might be real or not.

It came from a Facebook Marketplace ad from a guy who was selling a bunch of loose figures - he did not seem to know a lot about the figures (which leads me to believe he would not be buying repro items). I bought this Darth Vader for $12.

The tip end is flat and what is left of the smaller piece does move in and out (only a fraction of the smaller tip is exposed when pulled out - and it is very fragile).

There does not appear to be any letter markings on the hilt of the saber. There is a hole that goes through the entire saber from tip to back end.

Is there a way to know definitively if this is legit?

If so, is AFA the best approach to grade it?

I asked the Rebel Scum forum and some thought it was legit and others thought fake (a ReValveiT Pre "II" markings).  Would love to know from this group thoughts?

Many thanks folks!
