    Not a Cheeky fellow as it turns out..... Fridge magnet of a MOC I own

    Hi guys,

    There is a fellow selling fridge magnets from the UK at this link:

    Star Wars Kenner Double Pack Darth Vader and Ree Yees Large Fridge Magnet | eBay

    And below is a picture of the actual magnet:



    Now check out the Ree Yees/Vader Twin pack I have in my collection:



    Cheeky bugger has used my own photo from here it looks like! You can see the AFA case rails and even the light refelction underneath the Kenner logo is exactly the same.

    I don't know if I should be flattered or cranky.

    Wonder if I should be getting a share of the profits........ or at least a free fridge magnet!!

    Cheers
    Pat

    I'm sure he can send you a free fridge magnet Pat The guy who does these is registered over on SWF actually (Same name as ebay) if you want to come have a chat with him and claim your % of the profits

    I wonder how big the market for fridge magnets like this is.

    I get people on eBay using photos from my site for their auctions all the time, and even one trying to sell a print of some artwork I made, but nothing quite like this. The guy trying to sell the prints did stop when I contacted him about it.

    That's pretty crazy! Just goes to show that people will do anything to make an extra buck these days....

    Not cool. I'm guessing most of his magnets are images he took from eBay.

    That's hilarious.

    I was thinking of making pins based on photos of 2 Packs to give away at Celebration in California - but I wouldn't know where or how to start in producing them. I guess someone had a similar idea - but as a magnet.

    Would be cool if you could make a pin of the card back then have other tiny little pins or cardboard pics, etc. of several figures that you could attach so you could mix and match what figures were in your "own" 2-pack.
