A big ol hearty YES to this post. Cloth cape ruins this for me.

Cool character, dumb cloth cape. Bleh. A 1/4 scale statue with cloth anything that costs around $700 is just ridiculous. But that’s where the hobby is now. It’ll turn eventually.

Maquette and a fabric cape. Sideshow is always good for a laugh. Otherwise this looks great.

Yes. The first Superman PF, Batman PF, Modern Thor PF, and probably many more.

Thanks. Sculpted cape on those look pretty good based on pics I just looked at. Wonder if they're just trying to cut costs now with all the cloth capes.

The original Thor is another. Personally I like fabric caves if it has enough wiring to make it look good. Allows you to move it in place if you have limited space.

The capes on OG Bats and Supes PF's were too heavy. A lot of Superman's developed a lean because of it. I don't mind cloth capes they're just harder to dust.

Saw a mouldy PF in the shop the other day. It was disgusting. Some collectors also forget that cloth degrades and are moisture/mould magnets. Meanwhile, there are statues around from Ancient Rome that are still in pretty decent shape.
