Might be putting these up for sale shortly and i've never been sure whether they are real or repro so want to be sure just so I know how to advertise them.

The Leia cape has a slight texture to it but does not do the zipping sound when you rub your nail against it, also has a slight glossy finish.

The Vader cape also has a texture to it but again does not make the zipping sound but I read that some real ones don't make the sound ?

The Lando cape i'm also not sure about.

Please see pics below, many thanks.

I'm certain your Lando cape is repro. Material looks too stiff and pattern looks off.

Hard to say with Leia. Doesn't scream out repro just from those pics.

The Vader ridge patterns seem very pronounced and the cape looks stiff/thick from the pics.

What are the arm holes like in the the vinyl capes? Are they evenly cut and round? Is there any wear on the capes to suggest age? Are the capes flexible/soft? Are the cut lines around the edges of the capes even?

Yep, that too. It's a tricky cape to get the colour to show the last time I took photos of one. The material is a light purple/pinkish colour and shiny.

Rebelscum has a good pic
