Hi guys,

I'm looking at purchasing a Vinyl Jawa and a Luke Double Telescoping Lightsaber. I've attached some photos and would really appreciate some assistance with verifying whether they're originals or repro's. The vinyl jawa is the Toltoys version and at first glance appears to be the real deal but I'm just unsure of the texture of it, I know the USA version has a cris-cross type texture that makes a zipping sound as you rub your figure nail down it but I don't know about the Aussie version.
With the saber, I've never seen one in the flesh before so I just don't know if it's real or not.

The guy selling them is very genuine, I have no reason at all to doubt him, in fact I'm almost convinced on his word alone, I just want to make sure. Also, if they are original.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Looking at the pictures (could do with better ones) they seem fine.

Well the Toltoys Jawa figure has discoloured spotted limbs and big eyes wich are good characteristics for an TT Jawa, also the cape has a slit above one armhole, but from these pictures its hard to say if its genuine. The pictures don't show the telltales (angles are not right and to blurry) i need to see to say for sure if its correct.
And yes the TT VC cape also has the crosshatch pattern like a regular VC Jawa.
Do you have more detailed pic's of the cape collar and bottom?

The saber looks good in the pictures, but i am no expert on DT sabers.

Thanks for the replies, I'm going back with the digital camera to take better shots. What angles are the best to capture?

Cheers

are both of them real? If it hasn't been found out yet, I can help with the DT saber. But I would really love to know if the Jawa cape is legit

Some more photos, unfortunately none of the photos of the coo came out in focus, hopefully this lot will help. I'm also learning how to take photos as well, I took a lot of shot but I had the camera too close and many just didn't come our right.

Looks like u got yourself a real DT saber. Unfortunately, the cape doesn't look good to me. HOWEVER! with that said, I'm not versed on vinyl cape jawas. but there are certain characteristics that doesn't look authentic
