And I was definitely looking for COKE Universal Monster displays this year, but haven't found any!  Pepsi is out of the picture, for now.

I have seen those several places, M4S.  Thanks for taking pics and sharing....

I get a kick out of seeing our monsters (even the cartoony ones) around Halloween.  It is especially fun to see displays big enough to stand nose-to-nose with.

That is actually not how this works.  No one can use copyrighted material to promote or sell a product without paying a licensing fee to the license holder.  They may not be selling the displays, but they are using the displays to sell the products, thereby profiting. 

Thanks for that info, but darn it,  I thought I understood this copyright stuff.  We have been dealing with the attorneys, the US copyright office, the printer, Universal Pictures, Comcast, and third parties for some weeks now, and it turns out that only one license is required and after only a few phone calls, it's pretty easy to get a Copyright License Agreement . I really, really wish I could post the paperwork here, but of course it cannot be done. It would surely enlighten most people, that is for sure. And I am going to read it all again myself, or have my attorney read/explain it to me. Ha .

Cool.

I thought that was just for your own party.

Not crazy about the pink buckets.  Thought about other colors?  (Orange with the black monsters would be very Halloween-y.)

Good luck with your projects.

Thanks. Have many color variations and art designs. Using the pink ones for my party, then another company takes over the project in the new year. I had been involved in a toy project years ago. The toy has not done that well and do not want the headache again. I only want to invest in sure things now. Ha

Thank you.  That was an interesting read.  I kept seeing that thread, but thought it was just about the original buckets, which I looked at and appreciated, but didn't need to follow-up on.  Now I see I was wrong!

Popcorn/ice buckets.
I would be interested in purchasing a reasonably priced (i.e. CHEAP) repro of the popcorn bucket. I never had one as a kid so there isn't that sense of nostalgia that would make me pay big bucks for an original. The graphics have the cool Monsterkid aesthetic which makes it desirable as cheap eye-candy to add to the collection. You, or whomever, would probably be able to sell several of these as long as the price was right.

Nothing wrong with selling cheap custom repops as long as they aren't misrepresented as originals. Of course there's always a chance that once a bunch of repros were let loose in the marketplace some might eventually be misrepresented by some unscrupulous or ignorant seller. It should be easy to tell a new repop from an original anyway unless some crook decided to "weather" the piece. Years down the road some of the repops might have enough age and wear to make it a little confusing. I would suggest making the repros a slightly different size from the originals to give a definite way for folks to tell the difference.

No oops to it. This is where the subject was mentioned and this is where I responded to it.

As long as you've been here you should be well aware that conversations are all over the place on this message board. If it strikes their fancy I'm sure some energetic mod will fix things to suit them.
