Beast Kingdom has recently sent out emails notifying customers of some canceled products. Sadly, it seems that Beast Kingdom has parted ways with Blizzard Entertainment due to changes in the market. Six collectibles in total have been removed from their site with 2 Dynamic 8ction Heroes from World of Warcraft, 2 statues from Starcraft 2, and 2 statues from Hearthstone. We covered each of these products here on Bleeding Cool, and it's sad to see them not make it to collector's homes. This sort of stuff happens on the business side of collectibles, which is terrible to see. Beast Kingdom did mention that customers who had pre-orders will get refunds, so be on the lookout for that. If you did not directly pre-order from Beast Kingdom, then I would check your retailer for cancellation notices. Fans can find the entire cancellation notice and all the collectibles impacted by this change below.
