'A Genuine MIKE JUPP' 'A FEEBLE FAKE!'

PIECES OF FAKE!

A CAUTIONARY PIRATE TALE STARRING, LONG GONE SILVER!

When Covid-19 caused the ship of society to run aground, the population began to settle into the demands of the dreaded ‘Lockdown’.Effects ranged from death to zombie-like TV binge-watching, to keep-fit activity, newly acquired creative skills and, in about 9 months time, the effects of another Lockdown creation hobby may become evident.

‘Lockdown’ also saw the rebirth of the Black-Market with modern ‘Spivs’, profiteering by selling everyday necessities at extortionate prices...Remember the £30 Loo rolls? (*the toilet paper, not the singer!)

Then suddenly, a decades-old favourite received a shot in the arm. ‘Lockdown; saw the worldwide resurgence of the humble, no batteries required, JIGSAW PUZZLE

Dissectologists (Jigsaw puzzle builders!) old and new, began dusting off long-forgotten boxes or buying new ones..With shops closed, the trade-in online puzzles went through the roof! Very soon the profiteering began, especially with online reselling, popular images began selling for more than FIFTY POUNDS a box!.

My,  ‘I Love..’ series of highly detailed scenes have been produced by the leading UK Puzzle company, GIBSONS GAMES (of Sutton) for several decades

‘Jigsaw Junkies’ is the number one US jigsaw puzzle blog site.. A recent message linked me to an ‘Amazon’ site. It was selling my ‘I LOVE AUTUMN’  GIBSONS best selling UK puzzle, awarded first prize at the International Toy Fair 2017.

Among the 5 star reviews and glowing comments was a pitiful TWO star review! Worried by the unusual brickbat, I investigated the cause of the displeasure, and found it was a ‘quality’ problem. Looking closer I discovered it was a different manufacturer’s name on the product NOT Gibsons, who are renowned for their quality The company is apparently Chinese and called ‘HUNNRY’

The puzzle was cobbled together from a low-res  jpg image, downloaded from the Net..and presumably printed on some of that previously mentioned £30 toilet paper? ‘Hunnry’ also appear to be making traditional wooden versions of my work!,,I wonder what wood they’re using? Balsa?

THEN!..I received a message on my Facebook site which informed me of another bunch of Ripoff merchants! ‘CAPTAIN ALBATROSS’ has taken thieving to a new level! ‘Captain Albatross’ (A Turkish outfit) have not only stolen my imagery, they have altered it, and added other art to it! AND..they have removed Gibsons logo and added their own! Thei have also stolen my ‘Big Picture’ idea!

So! Make sure you see the GIBSONS logo on the box before you purchase! And! Don't believe the glowing reviews ..apart from my genuine ones Mwa ha!

Whoever is pirating our products, both manufacturer and artist are suffering, not just from loss of earnings, but from loss of reputation

…and THAT hurts

It’s time for the turkey to be roasted!…and the junk to be sunk!

YO HO HO!... AND A ROTTLE OF BUM!
