Steve, surely those bids are someone just running it up as a joke. That cape isn't even close to either the regular kenner or toltoys.

Or to bid it up to a ridiculous amount and not pay. So no one gets suckered into buying it.

"100% original- you are  wrong. 100% fake, wrong figure- look at the bandolier mould. Ignorant scammer. Wrong colour cape- waffle pattern refers to bubble seal!!! http://web.ncf.ca/cn333/vcjawa.htm  "

Nicely spotted Steve. That's one of the worse repro capes I've seen passed off as an original. Bidding is up to £360 as I type, they've got to be all fake bids right? Though these days I wouldn't actually be that surprised if they weren't Rolling Eyes  I reported the auction to eBay anyway Twisted Evil

Here's a reply that I received when I tried to correct him: "Hi, thanks, the blaster is a repro weapon, but the cape is 100% original, from Australia (error in me saying Canada) ... fits all other description other than the unusual colour ...

Regards." :I am stupid:

I guess there's no helping some people. No

I would guess so, as bidder identities are private. Perhaps the seller is hoping a newbie will be sucked in. After all, the fake bids can be retracted giving a genuine high bidder a second chance offer. What a Face

@Steve, I suggested he/she checked out IG to see what a real cape looks like. Then got pretty much the same message as you after asking why he/she was of the opinion it was original...

"Hi, this cape is actually from Australia - error in listing Canada - and can assure you it is a real vinyl cape Jawa. Apart from the colour, which is an unusual variant, it matches all the other requirements.

Regards"
