Did I buy a bootleg?

I just won an auction for what I thought was a legit Absol Tomy MC. I'm normally really good at spotting bootlegs; I've been avoiding them on ebay for years. But I just noticed that this one doesn't have any paint on the normally blue spikes on it's legs. Everything else on the figure looks great, which is why I decided to bid on it. The mold is perfect, the watermark looks good, it's obviously put together well - is this maybe just a case of the paint rubbing off from being played with? I just find it odd that not a single one of the spikes has any paint left on it. What do you guys think?
