News from Topps - June 18, 2009

My apologies for the long silence, I just got the flu last week and have been in catch up mode (with non-HeroClix work) since getting back to work this Monday.

When we last spoke, everything was going to licensing for approval. So far so good. Overall we've been moving at lightning fast speed and have cleared most of what we consider issues. Now we have to hammer out some issues overseas and see if we can hitch a ride over here on a boat sometime soon.-


News from Topps…..

The Topps Company announced on November 10th, 2008 that WizKids will immediately cease operations and discontinue its product lines.

Scott Silverstein, CEO of Topps, said “This was an extremely difficult decision. While the company will still actively pursue gaming initiatives, we feel it is necessary to align our efforts more closely with Topps current sports and entertainment offerings which are being developed within our New York office.”
Upon notifying our partners, Topps will immediately pursue strategic alternatives so that viable brands and properties, including HeroClix, can continue without noticeable disruption. To that end, WizKids will continue supporting Buy it By the Brick redemptions for Arkham Asylum, and the December Organized Play events for HeroClix.

For consumer announcements, please refer to\wizkidsgames over the coming days for further information.

Unfortunately, the WizKids business is currently not operating at the moment and therefore we cannot honor any requests regarding redemptions. Consequently, we are returning the mail that you recently sent and will no longer accept new mail.

We hope the business will restart soon under a new owner. Please go to for future information.
