Banksy inspired vinyl figures from new UK based company 'Apologies to Banksy'

We have been following the news on some new Banksy inspired vinyl figures from a new company out of the UK called - a very fitting - 'Apologies to Banksy' for the past few weeks now (thanks to Tenacious Toys) not really knowing what to say, and trying to formulate a post around them... and really, personally, the jury is still out on them for me. They appear to be very cheaply made, as I have not seen them in person, it's tough to tell... there is just something lacking.
That being said, they are offering up vinyl figures, the "Rude Copper" and the "Bomb Hugger" in a multitude of different colors, and sizes, for pretty reasonable prices. It will be interesting to see how these do sales wise... even if they make it that far... "Apologies to Banksy", more like, "We are Sorry Banksy" after they receive a nice cease and desist letter in the mail as Banksy is known for his staunch stance on projects like this... then again, how do we even know if the man himself is not behind the entire operation?!?! For more info and images, and even a shot at ordering them, visit their website HERE as well as the Tenacious Toys site HERE. I would love to know your thoughts on these... are you feeling them? *Update* Jeremyriad put up a post on these as well... check it out HERE.
