Hi, I acquired this cape with several Top Toys items from a seller in Argentina, however it was not sold as Top Toys but it looks nothing like my other capes.

Help me Obi-wan TIGobi your my only hope.....

Colour and "see-through" material look close.

However if someone can post a photo showing the internal stitching we could fine out for sure.

Mine has no white stitching. But the way it is stiched looks good! It seems to possible that there is different stitching colors on those.

Fabric should be close to the Yodas cape!

The material feels very "brittle" Im always afraid these fall apart. They must be see through of course too.

Color wise I would go with the first pic Josh posted!

or with this....:





Very Happy

(Dont get confused with my Yoda...accessories are repro ; )

Cheers

Wolff

I'll compare with my Jedi cloak tonight but I'm pretty sure they are the same.

Yoda will have a smile in his face soon, my friend Wink

hope that helps...IMO yours looks good! The fabric has to be spot on and it is. Not sure if fakes are known in such perfection...I dont know one (only really poor ones! Wink )

Now i'm really happy, after comparing the Luke cape to my Yoda capes (I have more then one!!) I can confirm this is a TT Luke Jedi cape made by Top Toys celebrate

Material Comparison photos to TT Yoda cape..


Same zig-zag stitching on the inside

I've noticed a difference in the colour of the TT capes, maybe TT also had cape variants?

The material is the same fluffy type on the outside, same zig-zag on the inside.

Stitching and colour cotton also varies.

Photos for you to look at....
