Help with possible repro PBP Hoth Stormtrooper cape

Post by olisuds »

Hi folks, can I get your thoughts on these 2 PBP Hoth Stormtrooper capes. The cut is very very slightly different and whilst both have a glossier side as expected, the one of the right has a very matte almost textured side that I'm not familiar with. Please let me know if you think one of these might be a repro. Cheers Oli

The one on left is smooth on both sides. The one on right has texture on 1 side which I’ve never seen before.

I have since checked with a couple of the PBP experts on Facebook and the verdict was they are both good! :D
