Not sure if anyone has seen these, probably, but I thought I would share anyways.

Sorry if it's already been posted.

Let's not drag that thread into this one.

BTW, did anyone here buy the last set? If so, how do they compare to the real deal?

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." - The late Dr. Adrian Rogers , 1931 to 2005

When I say liberty I do not simply mean what is referred to as "free enterprise." I mean liberty of the individual to think his own thoughts and live his own life as he desires to think and to live; the liberty of the family to decide how they wish to live, what they want to eat for breakfast and for dinner, and how they wish to spend their time; liberty of a man to develop his ideas and get other people to teach those ideas, if he can convince them that they have some value to the world; liberty of every local community to decide how its children shall be educated, how its local services shall be run, and who its local leaders shall be; liberty of a man to choose his own occupation; and liberty of a man to run his own business as he thinks it ought to be run, as long as he does not interfere with the right of other people to do the same thing. - Robert A. Taft

Damn! Those look really close to the originals... Perhaps the rubber consistancy is off. They changed the "S" to an "8". Other than that just by looking at the picture alone I would be fooled if they intentionally mis-represented it. What stops someone from doing just that? Obviously the morality and ethics of it all... but I just dont know if thats enough for some these days. So how would one distinguish it from an original if not stamped and/or told?

In reality: touch, feel, look & smell would be what I look for - smell is a big factor, since MUSCLEs have a very distinctive smell.

In a picture: colouration, comparison to other MUSCLES of the same colour, Size, glossy look, lack of detail, lack of flashing.

When I bought my Purple Claw, I was worried to begin with about buying a fake - but the seller provided really good pictures and General Veers (UofMUSCLE President) pretty much confirmed it to be real so that was enough for me.

Hope this helps :)

I see. Now that you mention the glossiness you can tell its a bit off. Same with the overall color. I could definitely see some people getting gitty over one and gettin fooled tho. Think I will stick with the more commons for now :)
