Subject: Custom MLP Cards?   PostPosted: Wed May 29, 2013 10:30 pm Reply with quote

So, I'm derpin' around on ebay, when I come across some unfamiliar cards that look like enterplay cards. Apparently, someone has been making their own custom foil cards that look like enterplay's cards. They actually look pretty fantastic.

Here are some of the examples:

and then there was this...

So, what do you all think? I would definitely buy some of these if I had disposable income, but, alas, I waste enough money on the official cards as it is. I wonder how hard it is to make cards and if this person is any legal danger by making them.

Anyway, I just found that rather interesting and thought I would share.

I have seen these before. I do not think I would purchase them due to the fact that they are very much illegal. A few years ago when I was getting back into Magic the Gathering I found someone that was making custom cards and Wizards of the Coast sued the pants off of him because he was using their cards likeness without permission and selling them. The thing is they are so easy to make it almost makes you nervous to buy foil cards on eBay because you can never really know if the card is legit or not.

Yeah, that's a good point. Personally, I would never buy a trading card off ebay, for both that reason and the fact that I will never pay more than $10 for a piece of cardboard. Any yeah, the legality is a pretty slippery slope. The line between selling fanart and creating a copyright-infringing product is a pretty blurred line, but these certainly cross it. That being said, I still think they're pretty cool.
