I think ill tell him that might be something to look at. He doesn't collect toys, he just loves jawa's and has been buying em for years. I just thought that was funny. Not sure where he woulda got a repro though, so who knows. did they ever make a repro to scale with the cloak?

Repros are everywhere, mostly online, but still, they can be found often.

And the cloaked Jawa isn't as rare or desirable so it's less likely to be a repro, though I'm pretty sure there are some floating around there.

But it is possible he's sitting on a nice sum of cash. He doesn't have a LEGO Jawa? ;)

That's weird. I told the guy a few days ago that I'd take the lot and made arranvements to pick them up in a few minutes

update:
The guy never showed up, I called and emailed and have got no response.

Another update
The listing disappeared, and the vinyl cape jawa was listed by its self for $100 but the seller hasnt responded since Wednesday. Zhamlau you realy screwed me over

This listing for a loose DT Vader recently popped up on eBay and the question everyone is asking is "Real/Fake?" - some bidders seem to be convinced its legit

The vinyl cape Jawa is worth more. Depending on what variation you have it could be very valuable. However, the cloth cape could be very rare as well if it was made south of the border.

I have got one of each, vinyl and cloth, which one is worth more?

Well I got a great deal on a blue snag from a RS member so I suppose it is inevitable that eventually down the road ill need the vinyl jawa. Pricing on ebay seems to be around $500 ungraded, is that the norm? Have prices gone up in recent years or are they about the same? Ive seen some better prices on here, and I'd prefer to get one from some reputable Scummer at some point.

Just trying to prepare my bank account for the future shock when it happens.

Legit or not? Did a VC Jawa ever come on anything beside a 12-back?! This is a local guy trying to sell this to me....

Hi Lemcool!

The Kenner version only appeared on 12backs. I think I've seen this on Ebay listed as a re-card with vintage figure, bubble and cardback. Though the wrong cardback. But I wouldn't trust anything about this MOC, and please keep far far away from it.

It is indeed the same one, and if the seller tries to sell it to you as a genuine VC Jawa MOC, he/she is a scammer. Big time.

Thanks for noticing the same photo, Duskamp! He is indeed a scammer. His name is Phil Wong and he is from Cincinnati. I just posted a thread about the situation and his blatant misinformation. Thanks again for validating my fears!

Correct COO for vinyl cape Jawa

Wad up... Hey just double checking that the COO for a correct vinyl cape Jawa should be between the G and the K, correct (see below)? The cape looks correct but it doesn't appear to be the correct COO. Thoughts on COO?

Hi Mynock, the coo looks good to me, the coo with the G aligning with the G and the one with the g aligning with the F are both OK for the vinyl cape jawa.

VC Jawa on ebay

Check out this site- it basically goes down the list. This figure this guy already has a $450 bid on is a fake. And this site and its evidence proves it. Check out where the bubble is and its size. Case closed.

Anybody around that would mind taking a look at a DT Luke for me? I'm fairly certain it's authentic, but I'd like another set of eyes with more experience than mine.

EDIT: please ignore my ignorance :whistling:

I just saw Post #96 where gerrit says:
F over G and G over G

Thats that then. There are two versions of legit COO on a VC Jawa.

Man, am ai relieved....





Don't bother reading below the line :oops:
-----------------------------------------------------------

Guys, I need your help:


I recently bought another VC Jawa but it has a different COO than my first one.


Regarding this image from the Imperialgunnery forum: http://r25.imgfast.net/users/2511/13/96/10/album/jawa10.jpg


I have numbers 1 and 4. Are they both legit for a VC Jawa?


Than I read along a couple of threads and searched for images but I couldn't find a hint to what must be THE real VC Jawa COO, if there is any ...


Appreciate your wisdom, thanks in advance and sorry, if I just missed something along the lines ...

I would ask for a better picture or two.
From the pictures you uploaded, the cape doesn't look like a legit vinyl cape as there's no obvious pattern.

Thanks. I may just stay clear. It looked like his Obi Wan and Luke had repro sabers too, so I'm out. Thanks again for the 2nd set of eyes.

Time to bump this for another VC Jawa. I purchased this, loose, in 1995. Date on leg is correct, arm holes are tight and the cape seems to be the right color, length and has a pattern (doesn't look crosshatched and that's the major concern). I'm 99% certain it's a fake but I look to you for final judgement!

Now... the pix!























Thank you for your input!

1oo% fake/repro cape. The coo is incorrect also for a Jawa that would be found with an authentic vinyl cape.
