I got this Jedi Luke snap cape in with a bunch of stuff. The snaps are black. I have never seen one like this and the cape feels "thinner" than my other snap capes. Is it a repro cape?

I haven't seen one like it before but that doesn't mean anything. Check the limelight section for the Luke Jedi focus and see I think it was Shawn or Craig (or both) who have it and there is a ton of info in there.

I have two snaps, one thick and fluffy, the other thinner and less fluffy a bit like your pic. Both sets of press studs are silver. Is the stictching in the hood of yours black? Or is it the light?

Yours looks a bit like the stitched cape. Don't have mine to hand atm to check the colour stitching of the lining of hood. Yours doesn't look repro but possibly it's a stitched that's been 'unstitched' and someone added a black press stud set to it?

The stitch on the inside is black, but on the outside of the cape/hood, no black stitching is visible. I got this cape in a pile of figures from someone in Canada so I don't really know where it came from. The figure pile had some Lili Ledy's and some PBP, along with HK, Taiwan, China, and no COO figures.

I don't know that I have ever seen one with black stitches before. Ledy did not have snap cape co that is not a possibility (at least to my knowledge they didn't).

The box... it's full of dead minty fresh vintage figures. I had it ready to go to AFA to get a set of "85's" until I read the AFA thread on this site. I think I'll just keep them loose now. But the figures are the best of the best I own.

This doesn't look right to me and I'd say it's probibly repo as the material just doesn't look right, there's only 3 factories that produced these, HK which is the bottom right, MIHK top left and I think the other 2 are Taiwans

Scott is spot on.  3 factories ( ignoring Ledy) - specific cape material for each, unlike the one in question

Think of all that money you have saved from not sending your figures away for grading Smile

Thanks for the follow ups. I think it is repro too.
