Hey guys, I'm selling off my variant ESB cape (the yoke version) and inner robe set as I don't think I'm going to ever use it.
I didn't open the bidding up to international buyers because ebay makes it so difficult to deal with.
Here's the description from the auction as well as the ebay link.
Darth Vader ESB Costume Replica Cape and Inner Robe Set | eBay
DARTH VADER ESB REPLICA CAPE & INNER ROBE SET
U.S. BIDDERS ONLY
Up for auction is my personal Darth Vader ESB replica cape (yoke version) and inner robe set.
It is a one of a kind set and I’m letting them go only because I no longer feel the need to hang onto this alternate version.
And since I don’t really plan on doing anything with it, it might as well find it’s way to a new home where it will be enjoyed on someone’s personal display or for trooping.
I've never seen anyone specifically try to make this particular cape version making it a rare gem for the hardcore ESB Darth Vader enthusiast or costumer.
This particular variation of the ESB cape is the one with the yoke at the collar.
You can see this version used throughout various scenes in the film.
This replica is made of a quality (and rather expensive) wool gabardine that VERY closely matches that of the screen-used.
Cape chain is not included (but is easily sourced online if you don’t already have some handy).
The screen-used version of this cape was sold at auction years ago and this is a very accurate replica of it.
This inner robe replica is made of the same wool gabardine as the cape and is a matching set.
It can be used as-is as an ANH style version, or modified into an ESB version by adding the pleats and stitching up the side-split at the hip (both fairly easy modifications).
This cape & inner robe is slightly shorter than what I would call Prowse size so it would be great for anyone who troops that stands anywhere in the 6’2" - 6’6" range. The measurements from the center back top of the collar to the bottom hem are approx. 66” on both the cape and inner robe.
I’m showing pics of the actual set in this auction being displayed on hangers, displayed on a mannequin, and also being trooped in.
All the pics shown are of the exact same (one and only) replica set.
Also shown for reference purposes are pics of the screen-used cape (that this replica was based on) from when it was being sold at an auction house years ago, and also pics of the screen-used cape as it appears on screen in ESB.
This is not available to non US buyers.
All sales final. Buyer agrees to NO returns under any circumstances.
In the unlikely event of damage or loss during shipping, buyer agrees to and is responsible for making the insurance claim with the post office.
If you have any specific question, feel free to contact me.
