"Hard Hero officially ended their Unicron relationship with 3H Enterprises on Thursday 10/11/02 due to non payment of goods and services.
"This conclusion was made after a long string of events which forced the company to make a business decision leading to this unfortunate situation. After repeated attempts to settle the balance due for the Unicron Statue, they were unable to obtain payment and therefore had to release the remaining unpaid stock to whomever wished to purchase it.
"Some of the factors for us having to take this step was due to mounting costs on our end for storage and warehousing as well as having additional manufacturing costs due. Most importantly, having the statues in the USA for almost 7 weeks and fans calling us daily that they have not received their statue or cannot purchase one. This will now not be the case for the remaining inventory.
"To help expedite the product to them, we have also offered free shipping and all orders processed in 2-3 business days. We feel that it is important that the fans know when their product arrived. " In reviewing the timeline of events leading to this, they hope you see the reasoning behind their decision.
"Any and all remaining Unicron Statues will be sold retail via other retail outlets which have the want and desire to get these to the fans in a professional and timely manner. "
