Vinyl Cape Jawa...or is it?

Discuss vintage Kenner and Palitoy Star Wars toys from the 1977-1985 era.

Tight fitting on both arms

And finally you should be able to see some of the texture of the inside of the cape:

I would say that is real. I cant be 100% without actually personally looking at it. The colour looks more like the austrailian (i think it that was the country) version to me but it does look authentic. If it was a ben cape the arm holes would look odd and loose.
This can only lead me down a dark path....... Again. Lol

Its the General Mills Factory.

Here is a link to a previous Toltoys ebay auction, although this isn't the one I was talking about. Is this 100% genuine? I have no idea because I have never seen a close up photos of one. As far as I am aware the only person who can authenticate them is a guy in Australia called Ben Sheenan (or something similiar).

Hey Chris,

I do not think it is a Toltoys Jawa :( All the Toltoys Jawa figures have this plastic brake-down spotts (some call it silverspotts)
These are some pics I shot lining up some Jawa variants.

EDIT:

Also take a look at the hight of the collar:
