I have seen lots of fake Groo and even one fake Mighty
Magnor stauettes in my time.  I even had Sergio sign a
package of miniture figureens from the model company
Dark Horse (Not affliated with Dark Horse Comics!). 
I'll never forget, he looked at the package, sighed
and a very passive yet regrettable voice said, "I
never got paid for these".  Some fan tribute items I
have seen were done in good taste and the builder did
not profit from the making of these art items, but I
hate when someone else makes these things sound
genuine Argones and sell them for profit.  Please buy
from the Senor!

By the way I had a Grooism moment the other day.  I
Coundn't find the memory card for my student's camera.
 After tearing apart my desk, backpack and worktable,
I announced to my fifth grade students that I had lost
their memory card and pictures of their projects which
they were to use for group reports. After finishing my
apology one of these ten-year olds raised his hand and
asked, "Did you check the camera bag?"  Sure enough
their it was!
Thanks for reading.
