Trying to purchase this off a guy who is selling his entire collection. But can’t seem to get good enough pics to determine validity. He states he bought all these when the movies came out. Some insight please? He doesn’t understand the zipper test and can’t seem to make out the waffle pattern. He does claim each side of the cape has a different texture. Thanks!

The color looks good. The size looks good. Also the snug fitting arm holes look good as well. His description of having different textures on either side is good as well. If you can request more photos from him with more direct lighting he will be able to capture the waffle pattern with a zoom pic. But if his description and these photos is all to go on, I believe it is legit. But wait til others give their opinion. Although, I own a newly acquired vinyl jawa(got mine last week), I am not an expert. Good luck.

Ok thanks! That’s what I was thinking too. It all looks right. Just can’t see the texturing. The seller hasn’t said anything so far that would lead me to believe it’s not legit also. Hopefully I’ll get some more replies on here with positive opinions and I can jump the gun on it. It’s one of the last items I need.

For me I am no expert on these, I do have one from Europe or somewhere that has no COO and the jawas hand and blaster are different then any NA ones I have seen. The only help I can give you is the colour. I am colour impaired so lighter and darker objects of the same colour do look different.
.
Domesticated  Fabric Robe Jawa, domestically Released Vinyl Cape Jawa, Australian Released Toltoys Vinyl Cape Jawa


The only advise I can add is the colour of the one your looking at, Taking in to account my colour issues, the cape is darker looking like the Toltoys one, and the one you are looking at match perfectly.

Hope it helps
