Wanting the best and not settling for less is not the definition of entitlement. Believing you deserve the best without doing the work, without earning it, is entitlement. As I said earlier, Jim Henson et al, did the creative work. This person selling the puppets on eBay did not. He just blatantly copied what someone else did. You want the best? Don't be lazy. Learn to build your own replicas. Yeah, there is a backlash against lightsaber building. George Lucas is a staunch defender of his intellectual properties. If fans want to build their own props and costumes from the Star Wars movies and wear them to fan conventions or (as happened this past January when Lucas was the grand marshall) march in full, homemade Stormtrooper gear in the Rose Parade, he's more than happy to allow it. But try to sell it and you will hear from his lawyers. You're starting to sound like Veruca Salt (the character, not the band). There are many Muppet puppets out there that are legally licensed to buy. I have a Kermit that I am very fond of and the Animal I have is great. Just because these aren't "professional" puppets doesn't make them any worse. I didn't get them to be professional puppets. I got them because I like the Muppets. If I want a professional puppet, I'll build it myself. Obviously you thought you found a witty turn of the phrase so you included it here and you probably feel very proud of yourself. But I don't feel anyone walking around in the dark and I'm positive no one has bumped into me. I'm not virtuous about the Muppet replicas. I've worked a lot of years in New York and Los Angeles at various levels of the entertainment business, dealing with different kinds of intellectual properties, including my own. When I say It's wrong and illegal to sell these replicas, it's not because I'm virtuous. It's because I'm right.
