Hello.

Is there a way to tell the difference between:

a moc 12back-a Kenobi DT w/SKU on footer

and

a moc 12back-a Kenobi non-DT w/SKU on footer ?

I understand this is going to come down to the saber. I've looked at pictures of both examples and the area where the small tip
comes out of the larger piece looks the same. Any advice on things to look for?

Thanks!

A guess a better question would've been is there anyone out there that owns both carded versions that can discern the difference?

it should be very easy to tell the difference. Also SKU footer Bens are not that rare (compared to some other SKUs footer) so even sight unseen I would say 99% are normal sabers. If it's a DT saber the odds of the inner sticking out exactly the same length as a non-DT are very small. the tip will either be more in or more out. @thinmintoncard has both I will let him chime in if he wants to share tips on how to spot them.

Thanks very much porkinsred6 and Lt__Brenn_Tantor. Much appreciated.

Do you guys happen to know what the current estimation of existing DT saber SKU footer Kenobi mocs would be?

I’ve got both. Send me a PM with pics if you want me to take a look.

Haven’t seen AFa pop report recently as their site it a mess, but I would guess maybe somewhere in the 20-25 range exist (counting graded, ungraded and projecting what might be found)

Seems like MOC Vaders are slightly more common than the Ben, but loose seems like Vader is way more common (probably due to the saber on Ben being so fragile)
