  • Topps Kills WizKids!

    Posted on November 11th, 2008 Rob No comments

    Topps announces they will stop making any WizKids products.

    The Topps Company announced today 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 over the coming days for further information.
