The morality of Casting Joe items?

Is it stealing?

I'd love to get this place back to talking again.

If Hasbro has a problem with it, then I would have a problem with it. They are more concerned with trademarks/copyrights than they are the products. J&R castings from way back got a C&D letter from Hasbro for using Hasbro names.

Plus, some of the stuff I can buy from a caster I've never seen in a store :-)

I think it's obvious the original stuff is ok, and I don't buy cast stuff often (twice maybe ever? once from tofujesse, once from good2go) Maruader John is all original and I don't think that counts at all. I can see someone having problems with the straight up recasts from Hasbro's works, or from the Club's works for that matter. Something I am very interested in buying when I have some spare change around is casts of the heads of the past club, That has to hurt people buying the sets right?

You know, if parts were easier/cheaper to get from Hasbro, then that would be one thing, but the fact is that most people buying cast parts are buying because it's cheaper/easier. I don't these products are hurting Hasbro's sales, so I have no problem with it at all.

I wish they were easier or cheaper. That's always what i have wanted from the club, parts and additions, not super expensive exclusives.

I've been chewing on this one for a couple weeks. If it's being sold as a reproduction, and it's not something we can get from Hasbro, or if it's all original like Marauder John, then I have no issue with it.
