Shortly after the announcement of the figure, I received an email from someone (we’ll call him “Joe”) close to R.J. Torbert, the Director of Licensing at Fun World, the company that owns the Ghostface/Scream Mask license. “Joe” advised against me proceeding with the release of the figure as Fun World does not take kindly to perceived infringement of their intellectual property especially if there is to be any monetary gain. I took this as a heads up from “Joe” saying that if I proceeded, the next step would be a cease and desist letter. So, I pondered my options. I could release the figure and take my chances that a large multinational company like Fun World would even bother with litigation over such a small case. If they did, I feel that I could raise a strong enough legal case for “fair use” of the Ghostface likeness based on the figure being a parody or even a social commentary. However, as I have never been down that path before and don’t exactly have money lying around to line up a defense attorney, I reconsidered and decided to shelve the figure. I’m sorry to disappoint any of you looking forward to the figure but such is life. Art goes on. There will definitely be more Kill People bootleg figures from Jack’s Attic. Stay tuned.

Dead Charlotte is the latest bootleg resin mini-figure release from Jack’s Attic.

We just wanted to give a HUGE thanks to Niall Anderson he of Man-E-Toys fame for featuring our Zombie Disuko Smasher mini-figure set in his article on the bootleg/pachi keshi scene in the latest issues of Clutter Magazine. Which happens to be the October issue and features a Funko Re-Action Alien figure on the cover!
It’s a pretty awesome feeling to be mentioned in the same article as such amazing and influential bootleg artists as Rampage Toys, The GodBeast and Healymade and to be considered a part of the next wave of bootleg resin artists to keep an eye on.
