It has come to our attention that one of the companies handling our freight, Hanjin, has recently filed for bankruptcy. Hanjin is one of the largest container shipping lines in the world and is currently carrying billions of dollars in cargo, including just one of our many containers of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell set.
We are in communication with the company and are working on a resolution to retrieve our product. WizKids is one of many companies being effected by the situation with a reported 85 ships being barred from docking due to Hanjin’s inability to pay port fees. Our only release involved is the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell Gravity Feed.
In the meantime, we will be launching the HeroClix release without the missing container. This means that we expect to have an initial shortage of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell Gravity Feeds. The majority of the product has arrived and all pre-orders will be filled.
We will update our distribution and retail partners when more information about the container is available.
