A fine example. Thanks for sharing :-)

Is it just the photo, or are your Squid Head's eyes unusually dark?


Thanks :D

Think it's the camera, just been to check and they are the correct colour

Thanks for checking :-D

Much like the Ugnaught's blue smock, some (but only some!) of which contain dye which degrades / discolours to give us the purple smocked 'variant', with Squid Head some capes unquestionably also change colour. I have one example which is mid-change and you can tell this because it is doing so unevenly (perhaps the dye used in the cloth was itself unevenly distributed?). It's the second one from the right below in the pictures of all 6 figures, or the middle figure in the close-up final pic. As you can see, unsurprisingly it's far easier to see the change on the back of the figures :-)

Anyway, here are mine. Sadly I have no impressive Lili Ledy variant, however I do have a nice selection of different colours / shades in the figures I have got.

Another Amazing collection from you, thanks for sharing it 8) wow this is the first time I have seen a mid-change cape :shock: So far I choose to believe that there are different colours of capes from the different factories and maybe even from the same factory, I am sure that they did not use the same amount of colour each time they started a new production, so I am sure some got light and others got dark on the same factory and other factories did use different colours, but I agree some can be degrades / discolours but I am not sure which ones :?

I bought this off Edd many years ago on the forum, apparently it’s quite a rare combination and I know of one other.

Thanks mate for the lovely words as always. I had an idea about there was a few more squids in some bags from some lots that I bought last year that I have not had time to look at yet. I found 6 more squids in the bags so I will check if there is some new variants for my collection between them, I checked them last night for a lili ledy, but there was no lili ledy between them, but maybe some other variants :D

Nice collection Lars, Apack... here’s mine as promised. Just a Smile factory variant. I’m going to try and pick up a Kader and MIM... and maybe a degraded cape variant... Ledy is out of my price range
