Hi,

So what's going on with this VCJ cape? Looks like nothing I've ever seen before, but big money changed hands for it?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STAR-WARS-Original-Vintage-VINYL-CAPE-JAWA-Figure-with-Weapon-/161829638785?hash=item25adcc5281&nma=true&si=s2f9v9NiXKrutQmBk1CnPaWKHx4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Seller suggests it originates from Canada, is this a colour variation I'm just not aware of?

Cheers, Jared.

Clearly a repro imo. People bid up these fakes just to screw with the buyer

We also discussed this here if anyone missed it: https://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t8085-original-vc-jawa-what-a-joke#140378

Some of us sent links to the seller to show resources and correct info and asked to end the auction so buyers weren't fleeced. Seller is a lying scammer and eBay didn't give a shit when it was reported Evil or Very Mad

Ah yes, of course -- should have checked the watch out thread.

Mighty claims by the seller, and I was prepared to be educated to the existence of the little known "Canadian" version. That's a serious statement by the way. But that being a mistake seals it.

Cheers, Jared.
