BE Aware 3 Years, 11 Months ago  
I know that we all see Dwarven forge Items up on e-bay often. I prefer to try and buy most my stuff from the site for two reasons. One I know that every peice in Every set I pick up form here is going to packed with care.
This said last week I saw something new.. Somone had posted not a Dwarven forge set on E-bay but a molded unpainted set OF DF products. Now this I feel I have to post about as a warning to The whole DF team. These sellers are posting high quality castings of your work ..

I agree. It looks like bad pictures of genuine DF products.

Older ones at that -- they appear to have bowtie slots.

How do you know they aren't originals? Upon examination they look authentic. Some DF pics of authentic pieces looked faded or unlike the actual paint jobs.

I'm just asking. They list them as DF products.

The link here shows a Diffrent set then the ones I saw last week. The Set I saw last week was a large lot of Rooms and Passage. That Sale stated oppenly that it was a resin cast set in need of sanding and painting.

Given the transient nature of eBay sales, timely reporting is a must.

Next time, save copies of his pictures and text, or save the page itself (as screen captures, if nothing else).

That would allow people to see the offending page/sale after it is gone, and would provide DF with proof of wrongdoing if they choose to pursue the matter.

OK - found the auction DM-Ghost is talking about:

cgi.ebay.com/D-D-Dungeon-Terrain-Dwarven-Forge-Like-Large-Lot-Resin-/400120105928?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d29044bc8

Seems to be what he said - a white resin casting of numerous DF pieces...

Now THAT looks like a counterfeit DF set! The good news is it looks like nobody bid on it.

The description mentions that they "don't know the history of this set", which may mean they bought it (maybe thinking it really was DF) from someone else.

Regardless, I think Jeff and/or Stefan should send a polite request to the seller to stop selling recasts of DF's trademarked (?) products. If that fails, release hell.

Thanks to DM-GHOST for spotting it, and Harneloot for finding the page.

Re:BE Aware 3 Years, 11 Months ago  
I saw this auction too. Its actually not the first df knockoffs I've seen. I have seen plaster df pieces that are made from a silicone mold but I never mentioned it on here in the fear I would give someone the idea to do that. I can tell you first hand they look like crap, break super easy, and have kind of a distorted look to them. I like how the seller claims to not know the history of the set in the hopes of not being liable for ripping off df.
