correct me if i'm wrong.
first picture guy might be a splenden mix for sure
sorry, but i dont think those are wild they may have wild blood in them but they dont show any characteristic that says they are wild. As you can see my picture (my wild caught Splenden) the dorasl fin has stripes witch indicates wild and wild bettas are much lighter

if you google wild bettas check out everyone of those bettas dorsal fins they all have stripes

I will post picture when i have the whole set
I may have a lead for you on the Mahachai. There is a lady in my city that breeds them and she is an awesome fish keeper. Only problem may be that we are in Canada.

Yes they are purebreds. The Mahachai is a very endangered species in the wild.
