Original Kenner 4-LOM cape V2.
[img][/img]

Close up of neck detail. Note the angle of cut between the neck & front is less sharp than the V1 (more of a 'V' neck).
[img][/img]

Inside detail. The lining is creamy white as opposed to the beige colour of the V1.

Close of the inside.

Close up of outside.

Paul, I have tried to match the original photos I posted for the V1, so that these can cropped to the same size.

Thanks Steve, those pics of the 4-LOM cloak are perfect. Interesting variant with its inside colour fabric, and I see what you mean about the style of cut around the neck.

Will def add this one with the next batch of updates Cool

Cheers Paul

I'm glad you like the pics Paul. Very Happy
I believe that it was Wolff who first observed the difference in cut around the neck.

New section added to the main site:

http://www.imperialgunnery.com/reproductionfigures.htm

This new section "Reproduction Figures" will document the arrival of vintage reproduction figures onto the collecting scene.

It begins with the reproduction Stormtroopers first limelighted by Mark Poon in early 2012.

A big thank you to members of TIG and SWFUK for their assistance with info and pictures. Cheers Cool

I'm having a bit of trouble comparing these to original parts because my collection is at my appartment and the repros is at my workshop, but I got most of my collection unpacked right now, and I think I finally got my UV light set up. So maybe i can add some more info about these repros before I have to pack up for CEII. I haven't added drop test on a bunch because I couldn't compare it to an original at that time.
