Skeleton flamingos

The design on these novelty skeleton flamingos on Amazon looks strikingly identical to the DIY version we saw in the photo tutorial Sean posted last year here on Make: Online. Whattaya think, did this maker go into business to produce these, or was his design duplicated by another? Reader Tim writes:

A closer look at Sean’s tutorial doesn’t show him painting the flamingos. I think he just modded the already available Skelmingos with LED eyes.
