A "Telescoping Lightsaber” Darth Vader (1978) to be exact. Looks and acts like all the other old Kenner® toy Vaders you’ve seen, with one small exception. The lightsaber. The first run of this legendary toy had what’s called a telescoping saber. It was similar to the later versions in that it would rise out of the action figure's arm. However, the only difference was a thinner piece that would rise even further from the saber itself.
Unfortunately, the design was discontinued because of its tendency to easily break. It’s been reported that there are only 100 or so of these prized possessions out there. The latest asking price: $6000.
