PostSubject: Taiwan Only Darth   Mon Jun 27, 2016 10:13 am

Hi guys

Need some help

Decided to move some of my variants to fund new misadventures, So I put my Taiwan only Vader on ebay and instantly started getting messages and bids ....

Mod Edit: eBay link removed

BUT....

One of the messages suggested I may have the wrong cape? , Any help with this would be great.

Although I am pretty sure this is how the figure was received in a lot , it may have been altered by previous owner , or even by me at some stage inadvertently

What cape variations come with this figure ?

obviously if it doesn't match up Ill cancel bids and adjust description.

Also my intention was to list it as I received it . but I have been advised the oddness of the saber may reduce value . I also have fairly clean Taiwan saber that doesn't have a figure . Should I throw this in as well? sell separately ?

I have removed your eBay link as that is against the rules.  Please post pictures directly here to the site.  I am sure someone will be happy to help.

Oscar also has a great thread discussing this variant.

If you have a correct cape and correct Taiwan lightsaber for it, I would add them to the figure.
The cape in the photos doesn't look like a Taiwan cape, Taiwan cape feel floppy is much thinner with square cut corners and does not make any zipping sound when you run your nail across the vinyl.

PS, just saw it is an auction listing, bids are going very well for it, just let it run as is.

Hmm I have a cape similar in description , I removed it from one of my Vaders years ago assuming it was a repro, and just threw it in my trash figure box . Have attached images and also attached images of my spare taiwan vader saber, compared with the listed saber. your thoughts would be great.

Just let it go would be my reccomenfation. Considering where it is price wise is already around where they sell, your not going to increase profit by ending and relisting.

I understand completely, though my intentions aren't to maximize profit , I Just don't want to Sell the item with an Incorrect variant of the cape , If I have the correct item in my collection. Same goes for the Extra saber I guess I have it , but don't have another Taiwan Variant in my collection.

The second cape you show looks more like a Taiwan cape, if I saw those pics on ebay I wouldn't hesitate buying it as a Taiwan cape. Hope that helps a bit, but to be honest if your auction is running well I would let it go as is, the bidders seem they are happy buying it that way, and you can list the saber and cape seperate

We should add the Taiwan cape to the site's Cape section. I am glad I read this thread. I was about to throw out the cape on my Taiwan Vader because it made no zipping sound and I thought it was a repro.
