They look good! It is an interesting design. Hard to go wrong with the classics.

That's rather good!

It's bigger than the old plastic capes lego used to do - which I think works well - and It's smaller than the more recent fabric capes (which for me are too long, and with a hood headpiece make an entire cloak)

Genius! :D

Since most medieval hoods were not integral to the cloak it works fairly well like it is. Of course with legomen it would be impossible or at the least very hard for an integral hood and cape I guess.

These look really cool ! I like the classic cape shape while putting the modern cloth style to it. I think it looks better than the original plastic ones. :)
