    Yikes! The guy must be trying to cash in on Christmas. I'm sure these would make great presents... if you were rich enough to give them!

    Elmo

    The Count

    Beaker

    Personally, I'm holding out for Janice. :flirt:

    That Count puppet is pretty darn good! Elmo needs to quit telling those lies, and Beaker shouldn't have gotten a haircut!

    Dude who makes these is just begging to have the Disney lawyers all over him.

    Nice puppets though. :)

    Sesame street isn't owned by Disney.... But they can get in trouble with SesameWorkshop!

    My thoughts exactly. When I see stuff like this, I really have to wonder if eBay actually enforces its "prohibited items" policy. :smirk:

    They do, although they're not always on top of it. Most of these get taken down before they close or they never get their minimum price. I think a lot of these get sold privately to collectors. When I was building puppets I'd get approached a minimum of 2 or 3 times a month by people who wanted high quality Muppet replicas.

    I still get those request , most are pretty understanding when i say i dont do replicas, other get down right nasty , acting as though im depriving thier children(or more likely themselves) of something that they dont really need.

    and then when i tell them how much they would cost , they get really irrate thinking that they should only cost 50 dollars or something ,

    some people really make me sick :grouchy:



    my two cents, to sit on a shelf and turn to toast , or make silly little puppet films to ammuse their friends, or just for collector bragging rights,

    The BBC has an interesting article about problems with enforcement and ebay, most of it deals with fraud and users' accounts being hijacked, but it also mentions that it can take up to five days to get auctions of bootleg/unauthorized items removed - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/4533154.stm
