STAR WARS VINTAGE VINYL CAPE JAWA ULRA-RARE 1977 AUTHENTIC? This is an item I'd recently acquired in a lot of old Star Wars toys (including the boxed Sandcrawler, as well as many other items from 1977-78) that came from an estate sale. I was wary that this might be an authentic figure, so I did a bit of research. I have since come around to the idea that this may actually be the genuine article. Some consider this to be "The Holy Grail" of all Star Wars figures! It is noted that many of the earliest forgeries were simply cut from Obi-Wan Kenobi capes, but the comparison below adequately shows the variation in color and texture. Also, the authentic vinyl cape was smooth on the outside, and textured within, as is this one. Most fabricated capes are known to have loose arm holes, where the real ones fit snugly and firmly over the shoulders, as this one does. The earlier vinyl caped version figure is known to have larger eyes than the later cloth cape versions, as does this one. (See comparison picture below.) The gun floats in water, indicative of originals. The indicia on the leg reads Copyright "GMFGI 1977 HONG KONG." All of these prerequisites lead me to 99.9% certainty that this is the real deal. Now, for the problems-- Figure is in decent condition, other than the bottom of the left foot having been colored with black ink. Cape has a small tear, or cut, at an upward angle along the mid-left side, as well as a tiny 1/8 inch tear at the back of the collar, and on the left shoulder. The paint on the hands shows some wear. NOT MINT CONDITION. As-Is. However, as scarce as these are to come across in any condition, I'm sure this would be a welcome addition and would display nicely in any collection. As a bonus-- I'm including the plastic display case in the last photo. Good luck! Please study the pictures below carefully, and contact me with any questions or concerns prior to bidding. Please read carefully Shipping & Handling terms below. Thanks for your interest. PLEASE NOTE: The Ben Kenobi figure, nor the cloth cape Jawa pictured below, are not included in this auction. This auction is ONLY for the Vinyl Cape Jawa. All items are in NM-M condition, unless otherwise stated. Please look at my other items. I will combine shipping charges for multiple items. Check back frequently, as I will be adding hundreds of new items daily. Lots of modern and vintage STAR WARS memorabilia. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING & HANDLING TERMS AND CONDITIONS-- *PLEASE READ CAREFULLY* I will send worldwide, but this has become a risky, expensive, and time-consuming process which may result in delays, so please be patient. Due to the processing of International Customs forms, and the additional packing required for delicate items for international transit, I have a surcharge of $5.00 for all international orders, per item. SHIPPING TO CANADA: $20.95 + $5.00 handling surcharge per order / ANYWHERE OUTSIDE OF CONTINENTAL NORTH AMERICA: $45.50 + $5.00 handling surcharge per order. These are estimated expenses. If there is ever any overage from the shipping expense, I will reimburse the buyer once the items have arrived safely and securely, and it is insured that there aren't any complications with the merchandise. All orders over $50 are insurance mandatory. International orders are always insured against damages and/or missing accessories. Shipping charges for international orders are non-refundable. I apologize in advance, but as previously stated, this is an expensive process, and I cannot afford the risk of potential loss. RETURN POLICY: Returned items to be shipped at the buyer's expense, within 7 days of Delivery Confirmation date. Once items have been returned, inventoried, and inspected, I will post refund only to the Paypal account from which the original transaction commenced. Item must be complete, with all parts as specified in the listing for full refund. Due to smaller accessories, I cannot accept returns of incomplete items. If there is ever any problem with missing pieces, it becomes an insurance claim, and I will do everything in my power to assist throughout the process of recovering your loss for the damages. Payment to be expected within 7 days of auction's closing. Please e-mail me with any questions prior to bidding. Thanks.
