This guy was purchased in my Chicago lot, I doubt its authenticity but wanted you guys to have a look. No COO, which might eliminate him immediately? Thoughts? Cut Kenobi?

**Didn't post this in FOTW because I believe it's a counterfeit. I apologize in advance if this inquiry was to be posted elsewhere.

IMO: The big arm holes are the give away- FAKE. Is it the same colour as a Ben cape?

I agree with AJ. Besides the arm holes the texture is also wrong. The cut of the cape is wrong also. You should see more cape as it flairs out around the neckline down the arms..... : (
To me, from the pics, it looks like a Ben cape cut down....

Shit! I take that back, it's not even a Ben cape cut down. That texture is most certainly fake and that cape was created from something else........

You can buy that vinyl material at a hobby shop and cut it down to size. I would guess thats how most of the fakes are done thats not a Ben cape cut down.
