Got these from the Chiproom (thanks Jim). They're ceramic, else a perfect replica of the WSOP chips.

Have enough for a 30 person T10K tourney with color ups.

Except for the mortar and pestle "mold", those are some dead ringers. There's even a little "splitting" in the aligned edge-spots.

Very nice! I don't see them listed on his site, was this a one time thing or does he have more to sell?

You will sell those to me next week because they are just ceramics.

Perfect tourney set for friends that don't appreciate the Dunes (obv non-chip-aficionados).

Trademark infringement produces some awesome results. Wonder why they balked at the top hat and cane but had no problem with the Rio logo.

I can't speak to that - I didn't have them made and don't know the history.

Perhaps they know something about the Rio (Caesar's) lawyers that we don't.

"Hey, remember that paste eating idiot we grew up with"

"The one we got drunk, and then Photoshopped pictures of him with a goat? What's he doing these days?"

"He's a Ceasears attorney... And I'm going to make me some replicas..."

I actually don't know the difference between Sun Fly and Mr. Chip ceramic. They're definitely fully ceramic chips with no textured mold or inlay impression, so I'm not sure what the hybrid is in reference to. I think Jim mentioned that they were originally Mr. Chip and were selling at $1/chip but the sales were stopped for obvious reasons with a very limited quantity produced.

Pretty sure that MrChip.eu uses Sun-Fly ceramic blanks, and probably printed by Sun-Fly too. China clays are something else. Hybrid chips are ceramics with a recessed center area that contains a printed label (usually laminated).
