    Aren't you wasting your time and money trying to stop them now?

    You could get your money back by selling some sort of thing like he is doing at conventions, deviant art, or on ebay. People would by them if they are from the original artist. There would be legal matters but wouldn't it be worth it if something like that happened? You could end up designing TF's for Hasbro.

    i imagine the guy's gonna get some fair backlash once the movie comes out and everyone of his customers finds none of the bots in it! although too late to really matter, unless we all get on ebay and hassle the crap out of him!

    If you really like something you've created you should get it copy written. Just think of poor Tetris :-(

    Bidding has ended for this item

    I guess this means that its been removed? That or its been purchased. It still sucks.

    Not your picture!

    Just the fact that someone did this. I know If someone did this to me I'd be upset about it. Hope things get straighten out.

    I don't think it's funny at all. I wouldn't take it so lightly if it was something of mine i put my time into. However, if your not going to do anything with it at least someone is making money off it

    there are millions of things out there where the inventor/creator did not protect his/her creations and had to watch others reap the benefit/proceeds for it. If it is funny to you, then there can't be anything wrong with this person trying to profit from it....deep down, does it piss you off?? If it does, gather them all up and protect them legally....

    Ebay already handled one of them. I'm just not understanding the hostile attitude along with well "well if you don't copyright it that means it's perfectly ok for someone else to take it and sell it" responses. Cause it's not. I don't care if some nobody wants to try to make $5 bucks on something with ebay. They aren't gona get far. Now let's say Hasbro starts selling posters and making toys after the design, that's a completely different story.

    They're upset because they care about you and your work. And the theft is theft.

    Something for you to consider though.

    Sucks man. Give some of us more credit, though. It's not like some of us think you and Jolin are actually crying on each others' shoulders over $5 mousepads.

    ....or are you? (j/k)

    Sounds like eBay is doing what they are supposed to be doing. I love the part where the dude was looking for positive seller feedback. LMAO.


    Btw, didn't this happen to MitGas(sp?) and Tim Shinn with Soundwave t-shirts, or something to that effect, a while back?

    I'm an artist to JesterJJZ, I hate to see you go through this. I would put a copywrite on the artwork, not just keep my artwork safe but to give me a peace of mind. Your art is awsome and if I done work like that I would protect it even if it was fanmade.
