    Pip, did you “report item”? If you select “report item”, then select “Listing practices” -> “Search and browse manipulation” -> “Misusing a brand name” (“The listing includes a brand name other than the brand name used by the company that manufactured or produced the item for sale.”)

    My keyboard is broken. I keep pressing "Escape", but I'm still here.

    Sigh … this modified and repainted Frog Wizard is the latest piece posted by the “He Who Shall Be Nameless Former Forum Member”:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/WINDSTONE-EDITIONS-HABANERO-THE-WIZARD-FROG-EXTREMELY-RARE-THE-ONLY-ONE-IN-EXI/383928141183?hash=item5963e6857f:g:8UQAAOSwoIhgFiqB

    I have emailed John about it. With that many modifications I doubt that it can be described as a Windstone, but who knows.

    This auction needs to clearly state that this specific wizard frog is a ‘Repaint’ and an ‘Altered’ sculpture, within the title and description. The way this person writes it this auction implies that this Habanero Frog was a ‘custom painted’ piece and ‘extremely rare’ one done by Windstone Editions, which is completely false – as we all know!

    I HOPE some of our newer Forum members who have not encountered this “He Who Shall Be Nameless Former Forum Member” and his past shenanigans won’t be taken in by this VERY MISLEADING eBay auction and tempted to bid on it thinking it’s something special that Windstone Editions staff did.

    There is someone else who has been posting a lot of repaints on eBay but not saying they are repaints, only “custom windstones,” without saying who is repainting them. I find those listings misleading also.

    I’ve noticed those also, and have been surprised that they haven’t been shut down.

    So this was posted in a game group I’m a part of on Facebook.

    It reminds me of the male dragon, but something is just off.

    No reflection of the swarovski crystals on its head. They must have been edited out.

    It also looks as though there is a dip in the first knob on his cheek. Maybe a bubble in the casting? I wonder whether this is a photo of one of the knock-off dragons. Some of them have the proportions and details distorted.
