Yeah there was a very dry, almost powdery matte finish to the 89 cowl in the films. The HT version is "pebbled" but I guess they wanted to achieve a more consistent look for the figure as a whole, as well as something that's resilient. The HT cape is abysmal... the Neca cape looks much better and flows/drapes more accurately it seems.
