PostSubject: Vinyl Cape Jawa   Vinyl Cape Jawa I_icon_minitimeWed Jan 16, 2013 2:04 am


Hi, I am new to the forum, from South Africa. I bought a friend of mines collection of the loose figures that we used to play with as kids. In the collection was a Jawa with a cloth on it that his mom had made. I took off the cloth and found a Vinyl cape. I have no reason to belive that its not the real deal, Its our childhood toys. He just kept them in much better condition than i did. I bought about 20 loose for about $200 so he wasent even trying to pass it on as a Vinyl cape jawa. I think i may just have hit the jackpot. I did all the test, the scratch, the armholes etc, and compared to Obiwan, it looks genuine.

Welcome to the boards! I'm fairly sure you are our first member from South Africa ! Glad you made the trip here!!

I can't wait to see pictures too. I think the idea that the mom made a cloth cape to go over the Vinyl Cape is a great story in itself.

It looks like the home made cloth cape did a great job of protecting the vinyl one. The condition looks superb.
