Apparently, he's selling figures from the D&D Miniatures line, but just throwing them in an envelope when it comes time to mail them.

Here's a neutral:
"$9 S&H = Figures shipped loose in padded envelope. I am not impressed."

And another:
"Horrible packing. The figurine is nearly destroyed. Try a box next time."

Why do some people make the eBay experience so damn difficult? *

What's the view on this auction?


** expired/removed eBay auction **


I would have thought the name "White Dwarf" at least in that typeface has to be copyrighted, no? They are described as "brand new remakes...just like they were in the 80's." It is not clear if he is making them himself but I think so as clearly binders for other mags are being produced too (see  
** expired/removed eBay auction **
).

Thought I would get some views of the community before reporting him. Thoughts?


Cheers!

Well, in the absence of any views ( :wink: ) I have asked him whether they are reproductiions, if he is producing them under license if so and pointing out he risks being reported to Games Workshop and/or eBay if he is breaching copyright laws.

We will see what he says. Auction scheduled to end Sunday.


Cheers!

I don't think its a copyright violation, although it very well might be a trademark violation.

[quote="Deadlord39"]Not much I can do anymore, eBay requires a credit card to register. So it seems, at least.[/quote]

I wonder if you can use one of these instead of a credit card.. <g>

Hello Fellow Watchers,

I came across this seller posting an e-copy of a T1-4:
cgi.ebay.com/AD-D-Module-T1-4-The-Templ ... 0067744815

I thought that you might be interested  :wink:


"Okay, we turn the corner and see a Purple 'WHAT' !?!" . . (the DM rolls a 20 or so he says) . . It all went black right after that.

Nice shooting.  8O
