Hello,
I've checked the TIG Lili Ledy guide and several other LL Jawa threads and still can't tell about the Jawa on the left.  The one on the right I bought from Jordan (ToyHunter) a couple of years ago and I am 99.99% sure its good.

The one on the left I just recently bought along with several other LL items.  All of the other items were good and this was the only questionable one.  As you can see the hem is a higher and the stitching closer together than the one on the right.  Also, it looks like the cape on the left is a little bigger than the one on the right.

The removable hoods look nearly identical, the one on the right just has some loosening of the threads in front.

It should also be noted that the figure on the left is the dull eye color version while the one on the right is the brighter color.  Did these different versions come with slightly different capes like Han Trenchcoat?

Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

I have never seen one with stitching like this.  I know some reproductions for Ledy stuff have been hitting the market lately.  See the following for a TIG report on them.

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

Given what I see I would guess it is a reproduction, but let's see what other may have to say.

I don't think the figure itself is fake, but finding a naked Ledy jawa is easy enough.

Hey James, yeah, I thought I had a profile already too, but didn't work when I tried my usual log in. Maybe I never created one for TIG and I just assumed I did?  I know I have one for RS & SWFUK, but I figured there are more Ledy guys here than on RS & SWFUK.

Thanks for the RS link, I saw that one as well.  My newly acquired Jawa doesn't have stitching on the bottom quite as dark as the carded ones that Jose had in his pictures in that RS thread.  Is that the one you were referring to?

I also saw this thread from Ozio...
http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t4693-new-repro-fabric-for-ll-jawa-coat

Of all the ones that I've seen mine looks like most like the repro coat on the right in Ozio's picture.  The thread color is close to being the same, but the stitching on mine is much better aligned and more uniform than the one in his picture.

Here is another picture of mine.  Interestingly the stitching and color of the new hood matches the stitching and color of the coat that I know is legit.
