Another rant about making quality replicas. The top post is the original pin made by Dana Schneider for the Hunger Games film (and it is GORGEOUS!). The bottom is the mass-market replica.

Look, I know this is the field I want to get into (so I could go on for ages), but why wouldn’t you want your replicas to look the best they could? Even if you wanted to produce cheap versions, why wouldn’t you assume that fans would be willing to part with more coin to buy exact replicas (see: Noble Collection) ?
