I have a couple quick questions about the Toltoys vinyl cape Jawa: I've found something claiming to be one for sale but it has almond shaped eyes (like a Ledy). I've done some digging, and I've only found one other example like this, and it wasn't confirmed authentic either. Also I was wonder what a loose one of these goes for. Any ideas?

As far as I know the almond shaped eyes Jawa is only found in LL Jawas. A Toltoys VCJ should be £600 - £1000 if cape figure and blaster is all genuine Toltoys. Maybe if you post a few pictures more people will chip in to help you authenticate it.

Thank you. That's what I was thinking too. This isn't something I've purchased, just something I was thinking about buying. But the eye's threw me off. I haven't began to really scrutinized the cape yet, but now that I look, the way it's cut looks a little off to me too. I'm no expert though.

It all looks wrong in my opinion. Looking at the shape of the collar, I'd say that the cape is a cut down Ben cape.

Thanks guys. As usually your information was really helpful. I figured it was a Ledy, and the cape looked odd for sure. On the other hand I figured I'd get some second opinions. There's plenty I still don't know. Thanks again!
