80stees.com rips off “Change into a Truck”
Yes, I know that it is also a rip off of Shepard Fairey’s original print, and it’s also using a copyrighted Hasbro character, but I believe it falls under fair use as a parody.
The first design below was released by Nakatomi Inc as a limited edition poster on 2/24/2009. You can see the blog post announcing it here, and you can find the second edition in the online store here.
The second design below could not be any more obviously a rip off. It was released by 80stees.com right here (as much as I don’t want to link them). Good job guys! They’re even denying that they copied it on their Facebook page.
