I would be the one who would get in truble fore selling the casts and I'm willing to take that risk.

I don't want to take that risk. I really want to do business with you but my concise would never let me live it down. If Marvel gives me the okey though, expect to get a pm from me about it.

Think of it like jaywalking, technically a crime, but no one really cares.

I think as long as you aren't mass producing huge numbers of parts most companies don't care or if you happen to be into really old figures such as casting replacement parts for stuff that's 20+ years old i don't think most companies would care since they aren't making cash off them that much anymore. You just have to use common sense. I know a few casters have got the cease and desist orders but I think they got too big and were casting tons of stuff.

To be both on and off topic. Marvel a while back got very mad at a modding website called Skintucky Fried Sims for making multiple Marvel characters to use in the original Sims, so this was a LOOOOOONG time back. They were forced to remove any and all Marvel content from their site and so were just about every other site that had Marvel characters.

Now considering this is a different medium than digital art I think it might play out differently, seeing as one figure isn't the same as a massively available sim mod. Just to be safe though, watch out for the big companies if they ever start cracking down.

I dunno, when you think about it most of the time you have to buy marvel figs to make marvel figs, so they're still making money
