I’d ask for a picture of the bottom of the wrist. See if it has the lines that the claws have.

Colour looks slightly off but could just be the lighting though

Here a group pic, it does seem a bit darker, and that made me suspect.

ive asked for a bottom pic, look for ripples right?

From the initial pics I'd say it's legit.
To me the color looks good, spru on the wrist is good, textures look right.
Having a bottom of the claw swirl pic would seal the deal.
Plus that waving purple sunshine would be a nice score too

Not trying to high jack here but is that blue figure in the top right of the group pic a Muscle figure? I don't recognize it.

Ah. The angle makes it look like it's has a blade for it's left hand. That threw me off.

That bottom looks legit to me. Nice score. Is that 525 for both #153 and Purple #3?

it actually came out to be 550, but it was for the purple #3 and the #153, the rest of those colors, and another 110 flesh muscles.

So in the end i think i did rather well.

 

Got it in today, has anyone one else kinda noticed a unmixed clear kinda swirl in the fingertips?

I don’t have a purple claw but I’ve not seen that in any other claw colour.

Post some pics up and I’m sure other purple claw owners will check theirs

What?!?! No. I am now very curious.

 

We've seen this kind of stuff: http://blog.uofmuscl...-purple-hybrid/

 

And I've seen Purple figures that are prone to getting "ashy." But clear makes me nervous. Bandai wouldn't have dyed there pellets. They would have used purple pellets. Please post pictures ASAP because I've never heard of something like this. (I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous for you.)

I don't think you have to worry about fake, but you might have an almost-bubble situation.
