Eggs actly!! If you have it made in China or other than America (or your native country) then you will likely have your item sold (on the side) with out your consent to others. Usually perfectly legal(except to original country or origen). It is China ya know.
It happens in many industries. Medication, Bicycles, cigtarettes, gloves, handbags, jewelry. If you think it is cheaper to have it manufactured in China there is a good reason. They will undercut you!



EDIT: His "Vintage Unusual Tiki Mug Vase " looks exactly like my two "El Bastardos" I bought for $12 (I think it was 12) at Freak Factory. He still has them too.

Well, at least these knock-offs are not the same mug cause they're not the same quality as a Munktiki mug. But, the Monkey mug is actually selling for a lot more a Munktiki mug. Go fugure, its the color thats doing it.

I remember this being talked about in this thread:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=11346&forum=5&33

And I too was surprised to see these knock-offs on ebay. This ebay seller may or may not have picked these up at a Zeller's themselves, but it is interesting to note that these mugs originally sold for about $4 Canadian each when I first came across them.

Although i'm not Munktiki, extremely far from it actually, i can now say that i have the 'honour' of having my work knocked off too.
The mug on the left, General Ra Ra V.2 (dark background), is my very first mug design from 2011. The mug on the right is something a friend found a picture of and asked if it was one of mine. I told him that it wasn't but i know exactly why he asked. I'm sure he and i are not the only ones to see some uncanny similarities. Anyone else agree?



The company is in Greece? and make ceramics including a line of 'tiki mugs'. There is another that looks like Munktiki's She Skull and another that reminds me of the the Happy Cannibal mug by Tiki Farm and Atomic Tony Tiki.

That is crazy! Did you ever think that you would get bootlegged? Obviously the whole wide world thinks that they are great and marketable.

I gotta get me some of those Swizzle mugs

Not in a million years lunavideogames. And if you want some mugs, you know where to find me.

Thanks El Jefe.

Haha tikigreg, nice one. I must agree, there are a few features on my mug that are very similar to the Munktiki mug you posted, but i assure that is purely coincidental.

Actually I contacted one of them and he took his auction down. I guess there are still good people out there.

I received a PM from Atomic Tony Tiki last night asking me for the link to the site where i saw the mugs that appear to be rip-offs of his mug, mine and Munktiki's. Sadly i never saved the name or page of the company but after doing a little 'Googling' i surprisingly found it quite quickly.

Here's a link to their site and the following link is to their 2015-16 catalogue.

http://www.hakahceramics.com/

http://www.hakahceramics.com/HAKAH_TIKI_PRODUCT_CATALOGUE_2016_EN_2.pdf

They still appear to making the mug that i believe is a copy of mine which is the first one that shows up on page 4. (Must say, i quite like the Oil Green glaze. ). Page 7 is the one that reminds me of Atomic Tony Tiki's mug. Page 9 looks like a rip-off of Munktiki's She Skull and 'Woo' on page 20 kinda looks like one of Jerk Kustoms designs, at least to me it does. (Although i could be thinking of something else but it certainly looks familiar).
Several of the other 'designs' also look like copies of other mugs by Tiki Farm but i can't quite put my finger on which mug/s exactly they are stealing their ideas from, page 13 and 14 especially.

Can anyone else see the similarities that i can and point out what mugs they are supposed to be a copy of?

A homage rather than a straight knock-off like the
Deuce (spit) version of my Mana Mana mug.

What annoys me is, if they liked my work enough to copy it why didn't they just get in contact and ask me to design a unique mug for them?
