He isn't just purple, but a lovely pearlescent purple, with whites and blues swirled in there. Whilst he doesn't look very complex, the fact that most of him is made out of a solid untransformed rock gives his body a very bulky quality, perfect for a strong rampaging beast. Spike Stone's most notable features are the spike on his head and his wicked pincer-like tail. Unfortunately these are cast in a softer plastic, which seems to inevitably yellow. I have owned around half a dozen of these, and all yellow in exactly the same way - even more obvious when seen against the crisp white plastic of the rest of his body!
Spike Stone is overall a satisfying figure despite the few issues he has, mainly with the head spike not wanting to stay in rock mode and the tendency of the softer white plastic to yellow. He's got a striking design and is common enough that you can easily troop build a herd of these to roam the fields of Quartex (or your front room)!
