BOGUS MERCHANDISE! Yes! You know a show has truly made it when someone starts hawking unlicensed merchandise on Ebay! Pictured above are some pilfered decals, and they have some completely unauthroized iron-ons too. Go Rip-off Jenny, go! (Nickelodeon, Frederator, and MLAATR in no way advocate the selling of copyrighted or trademarked characters under any circumstance. So there.)

I don't know who has standing to do it, but it would be good if somebody from the appropriate division informed eBay that those items are counterfeit so the auctions can be shut down.

http://www.nick.co.uk/primary/nick.aspx appears to be a legitimate site (nickelodeon united kingdom) that has a few downloadable free items for My Life as a Teenage Robot and other Nickelodeon shows. These are the only apparently legitimate items of this nature I've seen online so far, aside from the virtual My Life as a Teenage Robot trading cards on the US site (www.nick.com), which are very cool, because they have character info, a sound clip from the show, and flash animation. I have all of them except for the Cluster Ambassador, Lancer and Venusian Tourist ones.

I've noticed something else: awhile ago, in response to the first post on this blog mentioning fanart ("Draw Jenny and Win Billions!") I mentioned that I'd done a small drawing of Jenny waving, based on a still from a saturday-morning promo before the show on Nickelodeon. I've cut that drawing out and taped it by one small piece of tape to the lower right corner of my television screen, and I don't know if it will keep doing this, but at the moment, when I turn the tv on or off, the static discharge from the screen makes the drawing wave its left hand away from the screen and then towards the screen a little bit. Needless to say, this is awesome. I'm just mentioning this because it seems like a cool thing other people might like to try. There's been an electrical storm here tonight, so this may be just temporary, due to a lot of static electricity in the air or something like that.

Whoohoo! and How dare they! I have split feelings at the moment. Yay, because someone would put stuff like that on e-bay because they know that the show is popular and also I feel mad that someone would do that.

One of my favorite characters in MLaaTR is Mrs. Wakeman. She would probably call whomever put that on e-bay hooligans and try to put a stop to the nonsense. By the way...Mrs. ...Wakeman...What about Mr. Wakeman?! If she is a Mrs., where is the Mr.??

R.Radna said...

I have a feeling that's a question that doesn't have an answer yet.

Kevin said...

I noticed.

Keep selling MLAATR stuff!

Go MLAATR

Cyberhick said...

I've been waiting for some MLAATR stuff on eBay! Whoohoo!

R.Radna said...

I remember a few weeks ago, I went into a small department store to see if there were any stickers of the show, and I couldn't find any. It will be cool when there's stickers and stuff available. Once legitimate merchandise is available, the bootleg stuff will probably not be a significant problem.

Cyberhick said...

There's so much unofficial stuff on eBay that there's an AdWord for eBay for the words "Teenage Robot!" OH YEAH! Go unofficial stuff go!

Cyberhick said...

I'd get the collection shown, I'd probably re-sell the Tuck sticker though. (:

Anonymous said...

I agree that unauthorized merchandizing is wrong. HOWEVER, there is virtually NO MLAATR merchandise out there that IS legitimate!

What is Frederator waiting for?

They have a big hit on their hands, thousands of fans, and nothing to offer them? There are dozens of items for 'Fairly OddParents" and even some for "ChalkZone" but virtualy nothing for Teenage Robot, except the new VideoNow DVDs.

If there is a void, someone will fill it and make a tidy profit at it also.

Come on folks, get on the stick and get some legit. merchandise out there! I want to buy things, don't others?

R.Radna said...

Based on what I've seen online concerning this, I've come to understand it's Nickelodeon's standard procedure to wait a year or two after a show is released before making the decision whether or not to release merchandise based on a show, what kind of merchandise to release, and where to sell it.

That being said, I'm confident that we should be seeing licensed merchandise based on the show before 2006.

R.Radna said...

One thing I've noticed, if you go to nick.com and go to the 'back to school' section (don't know how long this will be up), there's a scrolling artwork of students behind desks, and I think they're all students from Tremorton High. http://www.nick.com/myworld/back_to_school/

Cyberhick said...

I noticed that too. I thought that the one kid that gets hit with the logo looked like one, but then I saw a student of Tremorton High that I know. His name is Travis, just to say.

omg i want sooooooooooo badly a tuck sticker! i just love that lil guy!

Cyberhick said...

Then I'll re-sell the Tuck sticker to you when I get this pack. lol.
