They have been there for quite a while, and they're not the original run WB heads. They're remakes..

It would be annoying if you were playing outside with it and it popped... the piece would just float away! :lol:

It would probably help if they had used the correct term, blow moulding. But even then I don't think many people would know.

Edit: scrap that, I'm plain wrong. It is the correct term, it's just a different process I've never heard of.

Oh oh oh, I think I can answer that one! Meffert's had the molds, made a few, then was told a much higher price for them. He sent the molds back to the 'distributor' in China. Nothing was made for many years. Warner Bros. expected royalties that were too high.

Bam! about a year ago they started coming back on the market. Only no date on them. No TM & c Warner Bros. I wonder? :lol: :lol:

Not saying these aren't real, I'd love to be able to apologize if someone can verify they are the originals that have been found in a container somewhere, but at that price? I really do wonder.

It says on the website "It's not all the new , no package" That could mean they are used, or they are copies :lol:

Like I said, I don't know. I just know what I've seen. And I'm not buying one. But then I've had my set for a while now.

I bought a full set of these Warner Brothers 2x2x2 heads about a year ago (Feb. 2009). On all nine heads, there is a rear piece that has the following:
™ & © 1999
Warner Bros.

The front bottom left piece says: PUZZLE HEADZ LTD.
The front bottom right piece says: Worldwide Patent & Applications
It could be someone found a container of old heads and started selling them again, but when you consider the sudden flood of pieces, I think it's more likely that someone found the molds and started pumping out new copies. Either way, good luck trying to prove it! :)
