Looks like a Kenobi cape to me, though I'm no expert and the pictures aren't great :shock: Plus just noticed that there's 2 Kenobi's in the collection and one is conveniently missing his cape :lol:

It's as real as a three pound note. Wrong colour (far too dark) and much too shiny.

Yeah it's def some other modern material, I highly doubt he's had it since the 80's though, sometimes people get hold of items in more recent years and store them away with the rest of the old stuff and completely forget they even got it, and then think they've had it for decades.

Also makes you wonder if the seller knows full well what it is and has added it in just to get more bids, iv'e seen it before.

Yeh I was thinking that Sub, I knew it wasn't a normal vcj if that makes sense but was unsure if it was maybe a Toltoys one

As others have said it's a fake cape and really shiny to, stay well away from that nasty looking figure.
