As you know the Luke Skywalker, Ben Kenobi and Darth Vader double telescoping lightsabers are very difficult to find given their low production numbers. Of course, the Darth and Kenobi figures are probably even more rare. It will be interesting to see what either of those sell for if they come up for auction.

    1. Well, determining whether a figure is double telescoping when it’s still on the card is difficult. But, it’s not impossible if you have the figure in your possession. You can do what they call the “Paper Clip Test”. Basically, you take a paperclip and bend it out so it’s straight. There is a small gap between the bottom of the figures bubble and the card that you can slide the paperclip through. You insert the tip of the paper clip up inside the bubble toward the tip of the lightsaber and lightly push up on the lightsaber tip. If the tip moves inward then it is a double telescoping version. If it is solid and doesn’t move then it’s the single telescoping version. Of course, you would want to be very careful when doing this test so as not to damage anything.
