Need Help to Identify: Unknown Darth Vader Figure

I saw this Darth Vader figure  posted on a Facebook Group today. The owner received the figure in the 80s, so it is vintage for sure.
He was wondering from what line the figure originates?


My first thought was a dutch bootleg, but that Darth Vader figure looks differently.

Do you know what we are looking at here?  scratch
A bootleg maybe?

Thanks in advance for your input, guys! Very Happy

Hi Steve,

No COO, and no Year.

Yes Christian, that is the one.

Meanwhile it turns out that it might be a key ring?

Ive not seen one of these before, but It looked to me, on first impression, like a Christmas tree decoration, minus the string to hang it with scratch
definitely doesn't look like a licensed item, I take it that there is no L.F.L stamp on it?

Some good advices, I will ask them to chime in.
Thanks Alex and Ian. Very Happy

Clint: This item was posted on a dutch FB group a while ago. I think it has been sold already. So no chance to get other pictures for the moment.

Could be a part of key chain
Chris just posted this up on SWFUK.  Is it the same DV figure, but from an odd angle?
Chris, could you post a picture of your key chain set, for the others to see?

That unpunched key chain hanger including bootleg key chains is a fantastic bootleg treasure. Congrats picking it up, Chris! cheers

It also solved the mystery of the unknown Darth Vader that started this thread, clapping

Also thanks to Clint, linking ths thread to Chris' find on SWFUK. cheers
