The person with 8 VCJs also appears to be selling 21 French Villas / Town Houses. Maybe they just like expensive things...

Well that's a strange lot of listings, the price for these would be great if they were in most parts of the UK (anywhere other than where Richard lives :lol: ).

So, not content with selling 11 :shock: vinyl Jawas (2 admittedly AFA) on 27/08/17, and averaging a whopping £1,087.54 on each one, today vintageplanetarium has ANOTHER 16( :shock: :shock: :shock:) for sale... all but one AFA one (yes, another one) using exactly the same auction pictures. You know, if it was me and I had 16 VCJs for sale and I knew I'd likely get over a grand for each one, I actually could be bothered to photograph each and every one, but maybe that's just me?

These new ones MIGHT all be genuine, just like the previous 11 MIGHT have been... if he has been stockpiling them over the years, however I have long wondered how hard it would be to find or have made some more vinyl sheets of the same shade, thickness and type as the Jawa's cape? At those prices, it would certainly pay for itself extremely quickly.

I repeat, I'm not saying these aren't genuine... but I am saying if I wanted a real vinyl Jawa, I think I would look elsewhere.... :?

Crazy that he again have some for sale if they are real :? I am sure he also had some for sale some months ago, so this must be the 3rd time he sell vinyl cape jawas :shock:

Have you noticed that he has not had feedback for a single one yet despite them all completing on the 27th August - that's nearly 2 weeks ago. I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole...

Seller was away until the 6th Sept so that could be why there is no feedback yet :?

So seller was away until a couple of days ago so I'm guessing has only just sent the original 11 off and now has another 16 up for grabs but with all the same picture?! I can only hope that the new ones listed are using placeholder pictures as how would you possibly know the exact condition of the one you're bidding on?

I would be asking for pictures from the seller to be added to their sales but at least they're up for 9 day auctions so everyone should have been sent the ones that were sold recently. It'll be interesting to see what the feedback is but the way this whole sale has been handled to date must be damaging to these latest ones that have been listed, I would feel very nervous about it until I read some feedback and saw actual pictures of the figures.

If anyone on here is going to write to this seller then please let us know what the reply is.

Hi Ian, yes TheJabbaWookie wrote on page 2 that he was away :wink: Looks like some of the jawas are relisten again, I got a message from ebay about that. Maybe he have collected vinyl cape jawas for many years and maybe he is rich, I do not know and I am not a jawa vinyl cape expert so I can't confirm if they are real or fake :? I agree it will be interesting to see his feedback and then we must also hope the buyers are not some rich guys that do not know anything about vinyl cape jawas :wink:

The last auctions he had then I noticed the jawas on the auctions looked different. But the pictures on this auctions is the same, the same small damages on the figure on all the auctions. So if he have all this figures. Then most buyers will not get the correct figure and that is not great :evil:

Thanks for the info and I feel, especially something of this potential value, that pictures really are needed. There's no way I'd bid on one of these without knowing what I should be receiving.

We'll have to keep a close eye on this lot.

Exactly! A thousand pounds a pop, yet they can't be arsed to provide unique photos? That redefines laziness, if these are genuine :roll:

Yes, I did write that. I'd forgotten all about it. He didn't list that he was away on eBay but replied to an email I sent regarding the items on 25 August. I was not happy about bidding so high without further imagery and was slightly sceptical that he was conveniently away - I mean would you list so many valuable items and go on holiday when there was bound to be a lot of questions and photos. I know I wouldn't do it.
-------------------
Hi do you have close up pics of the cross hatch pattern as well as a pic of the cape on its own (without Jawa) please for your near mint + and minty versions for sale.
Cheers Jay
-------------------
Hiya, they're all 110% originals with cross-hatch pattern making a zipping sound, took me a long time to find them all .. currently abroad so will not be able to take photos at the moment until my return on 6th Sept.

Regards

I might follow up this time and if I do I'll post response here.

No I would not list all this and then go away so I could not help with more pictures or better info. But I would have uploaded better info and better pictures from the beginning if I was the seller.

"
New message from: vintageplanetarium (697Purple Star)
I actually have 4 loose vinyl capes to sell (two with tears in armholes), the duplicate listings are to avoid chances of timewasters and would not sell any for less than £1500. If I do I'm going to keep on cancelling transactions and you'll see them listed again until they're all sold,"


"Interesting, although can I give you a word of advice? As it clearly mentions in the article it is one of your personality traits to be blunt and rude to people, as you have been with me in the past. It's easy to be a keyboard warrior, but when your personal information, along with a photo of your child, is so readily available on the internet, I'd be careful with who you upset - this photo could end up in a pedo section on the dark web."


Quality fucking individual he is....
