eBay find: Vader saber

Hi guys,

in my searches for a Vader saber from the original Trilogy (either finished or in Kit form), I found this:

Resin Lightsaber on eBay

Since I don't know too much about SW stuff, I wanted to ask if this is what is says it is and if it is worth considering?

I haven't seen any Vader Saber version like this, but that doesn't mean anything... :unsure

Thanks in advance.



(Mods: If this is the wrong forum or a link to a live auction is not allowed, I'm sorry. Please remove the link, but don't delete the thread. I still would like to get some advice and would be happy to send the link via PM to someone who is willing to help...)

I'd ignore any of his saber titles. That's most definitly not a Vader saber nor is it even from the Original Trilogy. He's also got an Obi Wan from the Phantom Menace and he has it down as a Luke Skywalker.

I'm sure some people on here can post some Vader saber pics for you so you have a point of reference for your search :)

That's because there was never a Vader saber like that before ;). It's an Adi Gallia saber and not even close to the original casting....

The word 'casted' is not even in the dictionary :confused

The description in the auction is loosely translated to english - hence I think the word "casted"

Here are some simple pics off the MR site to help a bit

It might depend on whether you consider Vader to have existed prior to his transformation...when he changed to the Dark Side he was Vader.....

Thanks guys. I knew something didn't smell right... :rolleyes

While we are at the subject, are there any other sources for a Vader OT saber other than MR at all?

Not to be nitpicky but a Vader saber never appeared in ROTS.

Actaully, to be nitpicky, Anakin's saber became a Vader saber the instant Darth Sidous bestowed the Sith title upon him after the confrontation with Windu. It is the man, not the suit of black armor, that is Darth Vader. Of course, that saber is Graflex based and the MPP base seen in the OT. However, it is technically a Vader Saber in RotS. :p
