If you are looking at this listing then you probably already know what this is and how rare they are. Straight out of my personal collection is the extremely rare authentic Vinyl Cape Jawa! My absolute favorite Star Wars action figure collectible just due to the rare nature of these and how hard they are to find a true authentic one.
These rare Jawa's were only made for the first year they came out (technically 1978 when they were released). Kenner believed that a cloth Jawa would sell better so in 1979 they decided to change it to a cloth cape which is what makes this figure so collectible today. It was also one of the original figures to be released after the movie which I think makes it even more interesting.
Lots of history behind this figure that is for sure. Where to start on this? First off I have of course sent this Jawa to AFA (Action Figure Authority) to be graded. CIB (Collectible Investment Brokerage) there has authenticated it to in fact be a true real Vinyl Cape Jawa as you can see from their certificate that comes with this figure. No stress here trying to figure out if this is the real deal or not.
It is absolutely 100% the real thing! I tried to take as many pics as I thought was necessary and have taken a close up of the raised seal on the CIB certificate so you can see it's authentic.
Amazingly this Jawa graded at an 85 NM+ which is near mint. For those that collect you know how hard it is to find one with that high of a grade. I should note here the 1 bump blaster is mounted in the case as well to go with it so it is an authentic complete Jawa.I spared no expense when grading this. I had them clean it and put it in a special UV protected case so it won't deteriorate further. You will notice that I took pics inside the original clear bag that was sent to me from AFA. I didn't want to take it out of the bag as it has literally not been taken out since receiving it from them. Even the case hasn't been touched! Here is your chance to own one of the most rare and collectible Star Wars items ever made.
A true dream to any collector and Star Wars fan alike. No stress wondering if you have a real Jawa or the heartache of sending it to AFA to be graded as that is very costly as well. Everything has been done for you on this one.
Simply open it up and enjoy it for your collection free from worry. Every Star Wars fan should have one of these at least once in their life.
Makes for a great conversation piece as well.. I know many of my followers are used to seeing my table where I take my pics so don't be taken in by these fake listings. If you see these listings with my pics I guarantee you will be filing a claim and have unneeded heartache. I just don't want to see anyone get taken in and get scammed. Just be careful out there everyone!Most of my sets are extremely rare and collectible. Many of my sets I have fixed up and spent a great deal of time making nice again if they weren't already.
If you don't see anything here you can message me as I have a lot to list and a lot of multiple sets both used and new if you are looking for something in particular. My collection mostly consists of UCS, modulars, trains, sculptures and other very rare retired sets. With that being said if you find some missing pieces or whatever I will make it right with you. Please message me with any problems you might find and I will work it out with you. Also, please don't assume anything about an item.
If you have questions or want more pics just ask. I will get back to you as soon as I can. I believe in treating others how I want to be treated and expect the same in return.
These sets are mostly very large and when I put 2 together it can damage the other set. I will combine though if I feel like I can do it in a safe manner.
I insure all of these sets and require signature confirmation. No exceptions unless you give me written consent.I want these sets to get to you as much as you want them as these are very expensive and collectible. I will only charge you what it costs me and nothing more. I will use common sense here..
