Star Wars 12-Back Ben Kenobi Double Telescoping Lightsaber
There aren't many of these around. Yep, it's a genuine double-telescoping Ben Kenobi figure, still sealed on its 12-Back blister card. Evidence suggests that only a very few of these were issued, as Kenner moved to a simple one-piece saber before the line even hit store shelves.


Here's the real important view-- the side, which shows the all-important saber. Notice that there is no curve between the thick and thin portions of the saber; the thin stem appears to go straight into the thicker shell. The apparently short length of the thin portion is also a telltale sign of the DT saber. The "wick" portion would appear to be much longer on the standard accessory.

Although it's hard to say with any certainty how many of these are known to exist, I've only heard of about three examples.
