wow. someone should wonder aloud if Phil Kim at Famous Monsters is approving of this.

But I wouldn't be that someone. I'll assume he is aware.

Seems pretty unlikely Phil would approve of FM being called "A Monarch Magazine," even in jest.
I only assume Phil gave his blessing because...on the FM website it says:

FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND (words and distinctive lettering design) is a registered trademark of Infringement Media, LLC. Reproduction or use of the FM name or logo in any manner, including but not limited to internet "tribute" sites without express prior written permission from the trademark owner strictly prohibited. All contents of website ©2008 Infringement Media, LLC.

...that would convince me to get proper permission. Although...maybe Monarch owns FM, now, because it says 'copyright (c) Monarch Models Corp.' on the back of the post card.

:confused:

Thats a good looking postcard, I am guessing that is the boxart. If it is, it will certainly get some attention for the model on the shelves.

Got mine!! If Phil has a problem with Scott using the Famous Monsters trade mark that`s between them & not for anyone else to worry about.How many kits out there are unlicensed? Understand my point? These are"FREE". :cool:

no, I don't get your point.

My point was meant as a 'heads-up, friendly warning'. Read the copyright notice...it's very clear. As I said before--if it was cleared, with FM, then there's no issue. But usually there's a "FM...used by permission, etc." note, somewhere on the item. (I don't see it.)

Do I care?--not really...other than when there's no money to produce kits because it's waisted on unnecessary legal affairs that could have been avoided...then I might worry...a bit.

There's already a kit lost/not done, from another model company, because there was no budget left after dealing with lawyers because of a minor copyright dispute.

But really...go for it! BTW--you are using 'A FILMDUDE's' avitar. I guess your lack of respect for using other's 'name brand/trademark & graphic property', for your own use, all makes sence.
