Yesterday at San Diego Comic Con, Shocker Toys held a panel. Bleeding Cool tagged it as a possibly controversial one. And so it turned out to be. Because as well as attracting an audience of fans of the companies toys, it also received a visit from one upset over allegations of non payment to Shocker Toys creators.
And, possibly a first, one Jim Macquarrie, who has been involved in a number of cases trying to secure creators’ payment and rights, served Geoff Beckett of Shocker Toys with court papers.
Jim later posted on Facebook; “Got the pleasure of serving court papers on a guy who thinks paying his artists is optional. In the middle of his panel at Comic-Con. Kind of a jerk move, but he’s kind of a jerk guy. Shocker Toys.”
Shocker Toys have been a controversial company over the delivery of product and the contracts for the toys they sell, but some opinion had moved in their favour of late. If there are public issues of payment, then that could swing the other way.
