Hmm that is obviously very possible, I didn't think to look at his feedback for previous items.

Will be interesting to see what the lot goes for and if/when it get's returned by the buyer and relisted again lol.


Yes it will be interesting, but I don't think seller will take it back if buyer learn that the cape is a cut kenobi. Seller do not write about the jawa in the add he only write everything is vintage and a cut kenobi cape is vintage :D


I always check the feedback of the sellers other sales myself sometimes if I feel something isn't right. I feel the pictured Jawas for sale using using all the same pictures don't have the original vinyl capes. I agree with Lars it's the way its listed. He actually doesn't claim they are original capes with the cross sections but that they are vintage. From the previous sales and what is listed the seller clearly understands vintage toys and their values. So for gaining maximum attention they would have stated more information about the cape clearly and close up pictures known that these can reach over £1000 each. It's only my gut feeling I could be wrong but if anyone was going to bid I would pm the seller for more information and pictures of the cape first.

That's a good point, especially being that it's a private seller.

If it does happen to be genuine then you'd run the risk of him ending the auction to relist the Jawa for £1000 after you bring it to his attention :lol:

That is true :lol: but I somehow suspect this seller is well aware of the vinyl cape Jawas and what to look for to gauge it's true value : especially when he's listed so many :lol:

Oops :) I was referring to the seller with a few listed. Now that's a different situation you have, it might be worth a punt it's hard to know. Good luck are you going to chance it??

I watched it end too, bloody decent price for the seller if it's not a genuine VCJ, I was originally going to bid about £300 and could have got almost all my money back if I sold them off, but when it went well over that I considered it too much of a risk, I didn't want to lose a couple of hundred quid on a fake VCJ.

I'd love to know if anyone on this forum won it, and how the Jawa turned out!

I asked about close ups of these items and this is the reply I got.

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.


So he's not able to post new imagery and he doesn't mention that he can't post them out until then, if it's true.

:) Sounds a bit risky, its the figure, I have avoided really. The same seller has 2 afa graded ones.
Or is this also a risky item, I've never bothered with afa, as in my heart I like to still see them as toys, and afa makes' dioramas a boxy situation :P
