Bib burgundy cloak

Postby Mini99 » Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:02 pm

Are there any experts here that can tell me if this is legitimate.
Asking for another collector and I know nothing about this area of collecting!

This is an incredibly rare figure, but hundreds of people own one if you go on the FB sites. Either it’s not rare at all, or loads of people that believe they have a genuine one have been duped into buying it.

I honestly wouldn’t trust anyone’s opinion on this other than Ozio’s (Horacio Narvaez). Others like Marco Jay (Dr Dengar) or Wolff’s (Wbobafett) might be pretty good, but really Ozio is the man when it comes to Ledy.

He would have a good idea if it’s an obvious fake, but if it’s a good fake he may need it in hand.

Colour of the cloak looks totally wrong. As Jabbawoookie said above Ozio is your man, far too many fakes out there.

The material these capes were made out off are different to normal produced figure capes , I used to have a jewellers eye loop , when you study the piece through a loop you will soon see the differences . You just can't copy that

I agree, not that I ever have had one, but the color looks wrong from the real ones I have seen from other collectors
