You shouldn't let...

the morally righteous stand in the way of fine art.

If Mattel (Hasbro?) considered how many times GI Joe is going to meet his plastic maker, they would have been banned.

you can have control of your production, or you can have cheap. pick one

This is almost guaranteed to happen when a company outsources production. A low-cost outsourced production company with no respect for intellectual property, trademarks, even contracts, will not destroy the mistakes and will resell them in an underground market. Or they'll make another production run of "knockoffs" based on the original molds and patterns THAT YOU GAVE THEM.

(Hmm perhaps that is the only way they really make any money is by this secondary business?)

If you want complete control over your production then you may need to do it in-house, or pay more for a reputable company that you can trust.

Malt... what?

People of Maltese nationality are NOT FUCKING MALTESERS.

They are "Maltese", and here's an example in context: "a group of Maltese people".

MALTESERS ARE CHOCOLATE SNACKS. GET IT, RACIST?

Sincerely,

Andy Towler,

Malta.
