Holy Sh....ower! Pirates ends today!

Let's hope they keep on with pirates together with Heroclick... but i don't think so.

Wow, they yanked the forums down fast!

It will be interesting to see if Topps continues SWPMG and Pirates... apparently HeroClix was a shoe-in.

Well that stinks. Looks like I am going to need to do some major trading just to get my 10 masted SS ships. Wonder if they will put out Return to Savage Shores since that was already essentially done?

Well, it's interesting they just Moved Wizkids, which costs $$, only to shut them down?

Puzzling.

Sometimes it's best to get unpleasant things over and done with.

Well, keep in mind guys... ALL the forums are down, even the HeroClix ones... so it's not necessarily a sign that Pirates is Axed just yet (I wonder if someone there monkey-wrenched it on the way out the door?)

I'm guessing this means the S.S. image gallery over at WK will not be updated in a timely manner!

It figures... Just as I was getting into a game the parent company is closed down... -_-

Hopefully it just means all future releases of Pirates will be with the Topps namebrand instead of Wizkids.

Either way atleast we have awsome little ships to show off not just cards stuck in binders collecting dust!

I try not to be a pessimist, but I can't help it here. The release said "discontinue its product lines". Well as far as Iknew, it only had three - Heroclix, SWPM, and Pirates. So if Heroclix is a "viable brand" then what other product lines are there to discontinue?

The writing's been on the wall for some time, but the way this has been presented looks like some kind of sick joke.

Lots of untied loose ends for a company which is ceasing operations with immediate effect. Will SS ever make it to the UK? (don't know where the rest of Europe stands). What about OP events in December, and in January too for SWPM? How about the new SWPM release due out around now? That must be ready to ship. I should think that this announcement will have a very bad effect on sales.

Yes, it's a sad day. I've just sent an email to Rose saying thanks for the help she was able to provide over the years and hope she's able to find something different within Topps or somewhere else quickly.

Don't let this deter you from buying product. Perhaps with some strong sales they will release Return to Savage Shores set and continue on from there in one fashion or another under Topps branding.

One thing is for sure, however and it's the simple fact I have enough Pirates to keep playing for years.

This is ironic, I recall talking with my dad on Saturday after I bought my Savage Shores box about Wizkids falling apart...

It's really too bad.

Sad

Jeez...it's all gone now...just wow...I'm going to take this all in.

I can't believe that this happened, I know it did, but it's just weird.

Luckily I have enough ships to last until the end of time, but still. This really stinks.
