http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/TOLTOYS-Star-Wars-Australian-Vinyl-Caped-JAWA-vintage-1977-NO-REPRO-/111716367183?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item1a02d07b4f


"neither capes holes are in alignment so it is impossible for this to be a cut down kenobi cape" twit the arm holes are not reused when they are cut down AND he acknowledges the cape has been hole punched!!!


"this is an auction for the figure only - cape is a freebie " pathetic attempt to protect himself from selling a fake.

The figure for sale is NOT Toltoys.  Look closely at the pattern of the bandolier of US vs Toltoys VC Jawa

Now the discoloured Jawa from the auction, this does not have the correct bandolier pattern ( or large head)



Seller is ignorant, even tried to say it's a new variant maybe even POCH lol!  up yours

Hey guys,

Thanks for taking the time to post this. I got up early this morning to see how this auction was going with a view to jumping in. I thought I'd check here first though as I saw some concerns about it on one of the facebook pages some days ago but never knew what the verdict was. Needless to say, I stayed out of this one.

So what was the final consensus here about the cape -- do people think it's actually a cut down obi-wan cape instead, and he was untruthful about that?

Cheers, Jared.

Damn somebody got rooked out of 550 aus on this fake. Hopefully they won't pay. What does a legit toltoys jawa go for? They seem to be rarer than the U.S. Vc jawa and I have seen some go high in the past, but there was a graded one I was watching not more than a week ago that went unsold at $1400 usd. Of course the seller of it is also known to be a jackhole so maybe that is why.
