The Topps Warcraft Cards are no more. Last year, we reported details from the SDCC 2015 showfloor about upcoming licensed products. Among the licensees was TOPPS, which planned to launch a card collection based on the Warcraft Movie.
It is now official that TOPPS has cancelled development. They did no offer any details concerning the cancellation. It is not unusual, however, for companies to announce a licensed product, then cancel it when licensing doesn’t get ironed out in time. I have seen that happen before with Panache and Unimax. Years ago, when I attended the Toy Fair as press, they were handing out flyers about an upcoming toys based on StarCraft for their Gamestars toy line. The license couldn’t be secured. Unimax later closed doors.
Originally, TOPPS planned to launch the TOPPS Warcraft Movie Cards collection on May 11, 2016. Looking up the search engine, the cancellation update took place on September 29, 2016.
Below is the original announcement text and images provided by TOPPS on December 26, 2015.
