Looks like there is at least two toolbags.  The lines/grooves are a little deeper & wider making the centre square a square!

65B (HT)


This 'square' version has the mould sprue mark at the back end



The other version with the less defined grooves and rectangle center has the sprue mark at the front



rectangle version on the left- look at where the handle meets the back it finishes at the line/groove.   The 'square' version on the right does not touch that line/groove

I have seen multiple threads stating that the purple version of the Ugnaught apron/smock is only a fading of the blue version.  I've read theories around cause (sunlight, etc.) but haven't seen good feedback on why these are such distinct shades (dye, original coloring?).  Have there been any good tests or summaries to help prove the causes of fading?  Are there good reference examples of the interim stages as the smock turns from blue to purple (it looks like Sompeetalay has posted some from his collection)?

I know this topic has been a source of ongoing debates. I'm interested in any practical testing or validated theories.  Thanks.

There are three distinct mould families for the figure, at least two suitcases- there is more than one apron. Check material 'texture/thread count' etc. I personally am sick of people trying to argue blue is a primary colour that can not fade to purple, when bleached ( oxidised ) 'blue' material can turn 'purple'. "Sunlight" is only ever a catalyst to degradation. Plenty of google searches will show various two coloured capes. Match the texture of theses capes to your own examples and leave one outside for the summer.
