I love you just the way you are ...

Post by jayums »

This ebay seller is selling some custom cloaks which look quite cool I think (not sure why he listed this as repro though, as not likely to be confused with the vinyl original).

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-STAR ... A&LH_BIN=1

So... As much as I'm sure we love all vintage figures equally, and just as they are, are there any figures you would have liked to have seen tweaked ... even just a little bit?

I normally don't like custom stuff but I had to say I liked it . I asked the guy whether he'd do one for Anakin in the same material and he said he'd give it a go.

I agree but it looks well made and I would have it in my collection for sure

I will post mine when I get them in hand myself ... will let you know if they are any good. They both gave me vintage-y vibes so thought I'd try them out!

As for my OP, I think for me it would probably be the Emperor not having a proper cloth robe, or Luke endor's non-removable head gear.

I agree - don't like any of his other /earlier stuff (tbh i think a lot of it looks a bit shite), but the kenobi cape with hood stood out .

I've also purchased the Kenobi robes. I think it''ll be a nice way to display Obi-Wan in the land speeder, sitting next to Luke.
