Looks like an OB1 cut cape to me, but I'm no expert. :?

Doesn’t look right colour to me. Can you take a shot with the cape lieing flat to determine the shape.

The shape and size of holes on your one look good. With Ben cut capes sometimes they are poorly done just using the top and armholes of the Ben cape and they are easy to spot as the holes look clearly too big and the top of the cape to pointed.

It is possible though to professionally cut a Jawa cape out of a Ben Kenobi cape to the exact dimensions. The colour on yours is going to be key. Put it up against a Kenobi cape to compare.

Also just double checking, does it have the typical Kenner cross hatch pattern?

When you see it next to OB1 looks like it could be the real deal, see what others say though. :)

I had reservations about colour: shape, size of holes and cross hatch pattern are all ok though. I posted it on fb for opinion and general consensus was it looked more like a VCJ than a cut Kenobi.

It’s a lot of money on eBay if you can’t be sure and the seller is not 100% trusted.

Thank you so much for all your help, they have 100% feedback and were good enough to send me the extra images. Have put an offer in so will see if they accept, least have some comeback if it is fake and it says been sold are 100 genuine.

I think it looks good. The photos are poor which I think is counting for the hue on the cape
