teenage_mutant_ninja_turtles_k9krgi At the beginning of the month there was some news that rocked the shipping world, and that was one of the largest shipping companies in the world, Hanjin, filing for bankruptcy.  This means that all the freight and ships they had out at sea when this happened effectively got stranded because the company could no longer pay port fees.  No port fee payments, no docking of ships, no unloading of freight, and stuff just sits out at sea.  So far the effect of this in the gaming world hasn't been felt until now, with Wizkids announcing that Heroes in a Half Shell gravity feeds will be in short supply after launch.  This is because a container on one of those stranded ships contains a large portion of the shipment of gravity feeds.  Hopefully things with the ports gets resolved soon as Hanjin goes through the difficult process of an international company going bankrupt.  There is good news though, in a blog post Wizkids has assured everyone that pre-orders will be filled, and that once more information is known it will be passed on to retailers.
