The statement says: “Manhattan Toy continues to believe that it has the exclusive global rights to sell Automoblox branded products under a contract that was terminated in October 2010, in part because it grossly misrepresented its true sales volumes.

“Thus, UK and Eire distribution was granted to Buckinghamshire based Asobi in January 2011.”

Automoblox has also claimed that a judge has denied Manhattan’s attempt to make it honour the contract. The statement continues:

“In an effort to interfere with Automoblox and its efforts to establish a sales network, Manhattan Toy has been attempting to intimidate its customers and agents despite the fact that a Federal District Court Judge denied Manhattan Toy’s attempt to obtain an injunction to force Automoblox into honouring the terminated contract.”

The firm concluded: “Automoblox kindly asks that its current and potential retail customers support its newly established distribution network and authorised resellers during this time of transition and growth.

“This support will ensure that Automoblox has the resources to continue producing innovative and exciting products for many years to come.”
