Official: Hanjinn Shipping Bankruptcy Affects Board Gaming

As you might recall in a previous report Korean shipping company Hanjin is filing for bankruptcy. Given that they transport a whopping 7% of the cargo between Asia and the United States, this is a massive problem.

WizKids has released a statement about the Heroclix release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Heroes in a Half Shell:

We are in communication with the company and are working on a resolution to retrieve our product. WizKids is one of many companies being affected 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’ll keep you updated as we hear more details
