I bought this figure on ebay from the seller who said it was all 100% original. I dont know though, the cape is extemely nice. It seems that after 30 years the vinyl should be alot more stiff than what it is. The lightsaber has an EE on the handle. dont really know what that is supposed to mean though. Ill post the link to the page it has detailed pictures if anyone can give me an answer to its validity I would appreciate it. Thanks

The saber deffinitely looks legit Very Happy

Hard to tell from the pics but the cape looks good as far as I can tell . Not sure if you have it on hand already - but once you do scratch your fingernail on both sides - one side should have a "zippy" noise as you scratch it What a Face If it does it is most likely authentic - you can always post some good closeup pics and the other gurus here will be able to tell you for sure Very Happy

Hi Very Happy well temperture would change the stiffness of a cape, warm/cold water and or air for example. The "Zippy" noise is a good indication as ourchickenshack noted. It's funny that you brought up the saber having a 'EE'...what are the chance of that James thinking @CROCKETT1984 that was just an inside joke please bear it no mind.

Well thank you both that makes me feel more better about it. I am always so afraid of getting ripped off with those reproductions.
