Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 28, 2018, Part 2/2

Great collection Lars. I especially like the PBP card back and the trilogo hybrid faux MOCs! And of course the Kenner 21 Back. I’ll be looking to add a 20/21 offerless MOC to my run later this year or next, though probably not the 20b debut card since one sold last month for approx £2.5K. :shock:

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

Although I like the complete OT, I prefer TESB and it's still my favourite movie. After seeing ANH I had the feeling that, while watching TESB, it was more like a rollercoaster. It had a certain pace and I liked the different stories because our heroes got split (Luke & R2 Dagobah and Han, Chew...

Re: Fake Darth Vader vinyl cape ? HELP

Well there’s definitely one pbp smooth both sides non zipping cape. I’ll update this thread when I’ve sent mine to Javi (though I’ve no idea when I’ll get round to it!)

Re: Fake Darth Vader vinyl cape ? HELP

I keep meaning to ask, did they come with saber and do you have shots?

Re: Fake Darth Vader vinyl cape ? HELP

The pattern is more clearly visible on this one. Again I can see similarities with the capes I have. Regarding the pattern on the childhood Vader I purchased, it is only visible when examined under a magnifying glass, shot with a good camera, or with a naked eye in good daylight when viewed from the...

Re: Fake Darth Vader vinyl cape ? HELP

4th pic down suggests appearance of horizontal pattern, 7th pic down shows vertical striations. I would say it demonstrates similar characteristics to mine and those in Javi’s book. But I can’t say for sure. It’s hard from photos and not in hand. As mentioned I will be seeking clarification of both ...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 28, 2018, Part 2/2

Coincidentally, like Jeremy, I have a Euro / PBP Snaggletooth with Partial Scar No Coo, as well as a PBP Small Scar No Coo. I am missing the Big Scar No Coo. Note the difference in colours which comes about from the different type of plastic that PBP used. The Euro Partial Scar No Coo has no PBP sme...

Re: Fake Darth Vader vinyl cape ? HELP

I have two PBP Vaders with the smooth both sides cape. One is softer and more flexible (similar to a zip cape), while the other is more rigid (similar to the rugose PBP cape), just like you. Of the two, the softer is from a childhood collection which I purchased along with the original PBP cardback....

Re: Fake Darth Vader vinyl cape ? HELP

Here is an excerpt from Javi’s book about the capes. I will take a pic of the cape textures tomorrow in better light. Sorry I can’t help you any more than that. Perhaps hellhippie might shed some more light.

Re: Fake Darth Vader vinyl cape ? HELP

Yes you’re right, yours looks like family VI former version of 2b (which is the blobby Coo). I thought his was the same but it’s family VI 2a.
