    This guy's already had threads calling for his blood. Say what you will about how you feel about his recreation, the one thing that's undeniable is he is good.

    I can't help but wonder that this guy has to be aware of Muppet Central, maybe even a registered user. I wonder how he feels about all the attention his auctions get? Even bad publicity is good publicity I guess. One thing's for sure, if he is a member, I doubt he'd ever admit to being the one who makes these! HA!

    Wow!

    They are not trying to say it's the real thing, in fact they say quite clearly that it is a copy..... but WOW it looks great - I wish I could afford to buy it!

    You what I love? The line "This is in NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM identical to it's likeness and is built from scratch using reference photos." That's a very lame attempt to keep Sesame workshop's lawyers off this person's back.

    It's sort like robbing a bank and saying "this is in no way shape or form a robbery" while sticking a gun in someone's face and taking money from their vault.

    Well, different crime but it's the same idea.

    Talented puppet builder, but definately not a lawyer. It's a shame this person doesn't put their skills to work creating original puppets imho.

    I don’t know if this is real or a hoax, but whichever...it is still a great looking puppet.

    The #1 thing that would absolutely turn me away from this is the fact that the seller has no feedback whatsoever. I have seen first hand the bad side of new sellers on ebay. I worked for a man for 5 years that sold on ebay and we encountered that quite a bit. Mainly a lot of kids and pranksters trying to pull a fast one on somebody. I’m not saying that is the case here...and I hope that it isn’t.

    *steps off soapbox*

    I would suspect that's because this builder has had auctions shut down before and probably different accounts as well.

    I was dying to know who this is and someone actually sent me the person's name and contact info. I *promised* not to post it publicly, but it was interesting to find out who the mystery builder was.

    ok, so because hes not "idenical to shape and form", its ok to make this? I THINK NOT!
    he places this line "This is in NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM identical to it's likeness" but obviously its shape and form is exactly to its likeness.. n obviously this guy is stating that its his verison of SS Count.. He even states that the puppet's name is Count.

    Another thing he states is "This is in NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM identical to it's likeness " So hes telling the seller, that the shape and form are what they look like because he knows the character and still made a puppet based on him. This puppet builder knew he was building a SS puppet, and he knows that hes making money off of it. I say SS Workshop's lawyers should get in touch with this guy.

    Whats to stop this guy next? Hes most likly already losat accounts due to his work of, and yes i'd say its alot like stealing a bank because its ROBBERY! Hes stealing money from SS Workshop's creations.

    This Character and every other character from SS have copyrights for a reason.

    ahem.. Bat signal calls for Batman.. not superman... hence BAT signal... :smirk:
    And yes, just like Paul Revere, i'm warning out "crys" to stop this guy. Obviously Paul Revere couldn't stop them himself, so he called throughout towns for help of those who can stop the British. I just hope that we can cry back to this builder of crime "the lawyers are coming, the lawyers are coming"
  14. OK.....heres a couple things to try cookie. If your a Police Officer, you can arrest him! No? Not a cop you say? ok there goes THAT plan. OH, If your a Lawyer you can slap him silly with a Junction of a cease an disist order, WHat??? Not a lawyer EITHER.......Hmmmmmmm that really does put you in a spot.....where do they teach you to talk like tis? Some Panama city sailor wanna bump bump bar? or is this gettaway day and your last chance at his whiskey??? Sell crazy someplace else we're all stocked up here.

    When did this happen? I don't remember agreeing to this.

    But hey, Devon, congratulations on being made a moderator here.




    And there are two "s" in "nonsense".

    Do I here the Kevinator approaching?

    Truly, the whole copyright infringment debate has been beaten until it is bloody and unrecognizable. If this guy gets in trouble, let him. SS can take him to task if they want to...and the do have some high-price legal representation, so I think there chances are good. *wink*

    Buck has posted over and over again about intellectual property. Let the lawyers deal with it. I think it is a nice puppet. It looks well made, without touching it there's no guarantee. Is someone going to buy it and start pirating their own SS knock off brought to you by the letters G and U and the number 6. I doubt it. Doesn't matter. But let's keep the derogatory stuff down to the point that Kevin or Phil doesn't have to say anything. I know Kev hates to get on to anyone here...we're family.

    I, for one, am willing to let this horse die...and no, no one died and made me moderator either. I'm just trying to prevent some greif...for all of us.
