Is it still a fact that there has never been a packaged or bagged one found? its origin still a mystery?

I have one for sale on ebay and I can tell for sure it is not a dyed cape and its the real deal.

answers....... more questions.........

I think that the orange capes are discoloured. Pretty cool nevertheless. Cool

Family picture. From left to right:
A) Light brown cape
B) Dark brown cape (also a bit longer)
C) Orange cape
D) Rose cape



I think the different cape colours are due to discoloration, especially after reading the thread below.

https://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t3201-orange-cape-squid-head-variation-discolouration-or-fake?highlight=orange+cape

My orange cape and rose cape Squids are not Ledy figures ruling out the possibility of being faded burgundy Squids.

So probably these capes are the result of normal brown capes that discolored.

I recently sold one that looked just like that one above but I've never seen one as orange as that one you have on EBay.

I agree with Dr.Dengar. After seeing that half turned orange cloak, some half year/year ago. Think it was in the discoloration thread.
