I have seen one of these but never heard about an orange cape squid? Is this a real variation or a custom? And if it is a real variant how much you think it's worth?

Thanks

I'm afraid it's just discolouration.

Yeah it's discolored. It's been discussed here and there with various theories. Overall it's just considered fading.

Saw this photo that makes a case for discoloration:

Thanks for the help

The one I posted the pic for was $160  Shocked 

I'm working on a SquidHead focus, but want only official figures & variants. So I'm not going to sweat this one.

That's a great pic Clint, thanks for sharing. The black cape customs look very cool.

I see you have an orange cape, do you mind sharing how much you paid?

Thanks

It was a long time ago, but it was probably over $70. That was before I found out it was discolouration and stopped collecting them, unless they came in a group of figures that were cheap. They are a cool little collection, but not worth the money that most people are asking for them.

Thanks Clint for the info.

I think I will just wait and see if I can scoop one up for under $100 but until then I will just concentrate on getting true variants for my squid focus.

And I just noticed you have a Yellow Cape  geek 

Cheers

James, those are some nice squid heads. cheers 

Does anyone know what triggers the colour change???? Is it just sun light or a combination of things?

I think the orange capes are pretty cool, I paid £39 which is approx. $60 for mine back in August 2012.

I bid on one about 5 years ago but lost  Sad  it sold for £55 if I remember right. I didn't realize it was discoloured at the time so I'm glad I didn't win for that price. Still would like one because they look awesome  Smile

Thanks guys for all the replys and pics.

I wouldn't mind having one in my focus like I said before but going over or even close to $100 is a no no for a discolored figure.
