Someone on FB suggested Toltoys, which got me looking into it more. Looking at photos online Toltoys capes are much redder than standard VCJs, in fact very similar to the colour of the Ben cape.

However, revisiting the original photos I don’t believe it’s a Toltoys cape as the Jawa itself is also much redder and similar in colour to the cape - my conclusion to draw from it is that the original photos, not being shot in natural light, just have an excessive hue of red (as Rich says) and this fuelled my concerns that it was a Ben cape.

So my conclusion is it looks good and goes against my original concerns, and in agreement with a number of opinions on here and FB. Look forward to when you have it in hand.

Matthieu Bathelemy who has owned a few VCJs and who actually sold me mine has come back on the thread and said it’s 100% genuine as well.

Can’t make this one. Hoping to make October. Will be at the summer FF. You don’t need to buy me one. If you’d gone on my first hunch he’d still be standing on the shelf :lol:
