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?

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 :)
