I collect but I also work in the toy industry.

You have your opinion on reproductions and I clearly have mine. If I pay good money for an original, it's mine to do with as I please.

Right now I'm just looking for a few rarer items for my personal collection. I just bought a mint sealed Creature Board game and I opened it immediately. ;)

No argument there. Would love to see pics of the game. Do the cards come in a stack with the game pieces or as one sheet or ?? I've never seen one that was unused.

Not quite. If the original is protected by copyright, then you can only reproduce it for personal use. You may not distribute reproductions.

Not true Hep, most of the toys from the sixties are from now defunct companies. Also most patents are only good for 20 years so we are long past the expiration date. If you are working with the original licensee and the original company does not exist or the patent is up, the original licensee has the rights to re-issue that product to whomever steps up. I've been doing this for ten years and it's a lot easier than you would think to make these reproductions.

I am very happy with the response from members here that have written me regarding this limited edition board game.

More info and pictures to come when I have them.

I don't know if you'd be interested, but I have an original resin CFTBL base from the early 90's in the box (I purchased this new.)  This was created by Mike Parks as a companion piece to the Billiken CFTBL. It was featured in the book "The Garage Kit that Ate My Wallet," or "Son of the GKTAMW."

I have never offered this for sale until now, so please let me know if you're interested before I offer it to the public.

Thanks,
Chris

Well hopefully you're upfront with potential buyers that these are indeed repros and these repros contain some sort of identifying mark so that subsequent unscrupulous resellers can't just say they have no idea of the providence of the piece.

Well after a few years of getting pushed to the back burner the Creature Board game and Mark 2 are back! I should have photos of the prototypes soon.

Hep these are fully licensed through Universal Studios and will have a 2014 licensing mark on the box and board, so no worries about shenanigans.

Besides, the originals will still retail their value as we are doing a very limited run of both Creature Board gams.

. . Creature Board game and Mark 2 are back!

. . . both Creature Board gams.



What is the "Mark 2" and what are "both Creature Board games" (if not the same thing)?

I'm assuming one is the Hasbro mystery game, correct?

Sorry one is the reproduction of the original while the Mark 2 is our very own version of the game with new artwork and graphics.
