I just saw those and came here to see if anyone had already asked. I’ve never seen them before but the presentation sure looks legitimate.March 28, 2019 at 2:31 pm #1562416
hmm, ended, so does that mean someone bought it before John could get it taken down?

I think this was a confused seller combining non-Windstone hatching box turtles with a Windstone label. According to the description, “THIS SET CAME FROM A RECENTLY ACQUIRED COLLECTION OF TURTLE FIGURINES AND RELATED COLLECTIBLES. THE COLLECTION SPANS THE LATE 1940S THROUGH THE LATE 1980S. THIS PARTICULAR SET IS FROM 1987.”

perhaps but they could’ve done a little research on it first….I just hope John got to it first so the confusion doesn’t continue….
they also said this in the condition notes..”They were purchased new in 1987 directly from Windstone Editions in Hollywood, California USA” I dunno, it seems more and more like they wanted people to think they were Windstones, besides there was no pictures of the bottoms, the bottoms would’ve told them that those weren’t Windstones….

I was on eBay and there is a tall Wizard for sale as a Windstone for $159.95, with made in Taiwan on the bottom, no felt. I didn’t think Windstones were made in Taiwan. I think this needs serious investigating…https://www.ebay.com/itm/Windstone-Editions-Pena-1986-Wizard-Figurine-with-Dragon-13/264007783267?hash=item3d78171363:g:R4sAAOSwlKRb0wOtJune 24, 2019 at 5:46 am #1570527GardenNinjaParticipant

To my inexpert eye (I’ve never cared for the hatcher), this looks like a partial repaint, not a forgery. What caught your eye that looked fake?
Obviously, the ‘excellent condition’ part is lie, but that isn’t a copyright violation.

I think somebody just added some silver paint to try and hide the scars.July 15, 2019 at 3:00 pm #1572547PatriciaParticipant
So, I’m browsing the prime sale and I found this.
Anyone mind emailing John for me? I think I’ve lost his email. Thanks!July 15, 2019 at 3:16 pm #1572552sherry10151982Participant
Uh-oh!! Someone’s got some ‘splainin’ to do!!
