I have attached a photo of a double page spread from the Javier Ruilopez Made in Spain book which features a pic of the cape and also a description of the cape, referencing the lack of cross hatch pattern. It does not mention that it does not zip but if you collect Spanish PBP figures it is a well known fact that it should not zip.
The PBP figure while not rare, is harder to come by than the normal Kenner variant, and is therefore worth more money.

Thankfully I took plenty of photos of it and there were a couple of tiny marks on it that have helped me to identify it. Lesson learnt...not to use ebay for anything that has the potential to be ripped off. So, I'm going to list the figure on the selling page here. Would I be wrong to list it for what I got on eBay? (£46 plus postage plus 4%). Thanks all
